Community Schooling: Novel Strategy to Expand Value Education
Education aims at the all round development of the child to help them grow as able citizens those who understand the purpose of safe guarding natural values, virtues and wise use of the resources to campaign for conservation and preservation to safe guard the ‘Mother Earth’ from manmade coercion. There is a crisis and lapse of critical analysis of ‘values’ in all spheres of life in present day society. Qualities like love, truthfulness, honesty, sincerity, co-operation, tolerance, non-violence, service etc. have almost vanishing as a result there is violence, terrorism, hatred, cruelty etc. are dominating in the whole world. The citizens of tomorrow are mainly the products of the present educational system. This indicates that the present system of education is not enough to produce good human beings. All the educational Commissions and Committees of preparing the National Agenda of the past have recommended stories on Value Education for children from the school stage. But this has not been attempted with spirit to attend success after manifold trials. The reasons are many but one of them is no substantial minimum awareness or knowledge of teachers and parents in this regard on various Value Education methodologies.
