Children Educated only in the Classrooms remain “Uneducated”!

tatva-logo1Many of us, in this generation have unconsciously concluded that, school is a place where disciplines like Maths, Science, History, Geography, Languages etc are learnt. Scores and Ranks are our metric. If our child scores well, we assume success. And it is relative success. Seldom do we think or analyze what does the school feed our children in addition to these subjects/disciplines.
In the past, way past, Indian families were more closely knit. There were always elders at home who would educate the then children on values, behavior, sharing, kindness, appreciation etc. The new societies have families that are more nuclear and smaller in size. There is added dimension to the smaller families – both parents are employed. As we move into a developed economy, more women will go to work and it is an important aspect of growth. This is progress in one dimension. However, we have to solve this problem of spending time with children on aspects that are beyond the subjects/disciplines. At a larger-community level, there is a great responsibility on all of us to ensure the future doesn’t degenerate because we are making progress in one dimension.
Schools can play an important role in this area. We can design programs in schools which focus on team building, sharing, appreciation for others, respecting relationships etc. While parents keep asking for facilities in schools at the time of admissions they do NOT really inquire about programs supporting behavioral aspects and values development. How much time and what programs are really focused on behavioral aspects, is not a common question.
Secondly even if a parent is satisfied that there are programs in school to help behavioral aspects, it is also the responsibility of parents to practice those at home. I think every adult is a “teacher” and we don’t have to be in a classroom in front of kids to be teachers. As an example teachers in the school will mention that smoking is bad for health. The student may find the “teacher at home” i.e. the father/mother smoking at home. Same with goes with use of abusive language.This kind of behavior by adults creates conflict in young minds. Remember we are all teachers to all the children around us and that children are constantly watching us…
