Listening, Understanding, Reading and Writing… this is the most common teaching- learning method. Where a child learns, understands and he is evaluated on the basis of some written or oral exams. How can a child be evaluated within 2 or 3 hours??? How can we evaluate them on the basis of grades scored?
Well.. We never notice and always give priority to his grades, but we actually judge a child on the basis of his behaviour and moral values.
So, What should be the main objective of education? Scoring good grades? Or what?
Here are few points that should definitely be the main purpose of education.
1. To be a good human being:
The aim of the education must be to make pupils a good human being, while developing deeper values of compassion, care, calmness, honesty.
2.To transform body, mind and soul:
Overall Development means the development of body, soul (to discover inner self) and mind (concentration, memory, and reasoning). For the same the activities like yoga, reasoning and meditation are the part of curriculum now days.
3.Provide strong EQ with strong IQ:
Education must focus on emotional development (sensitivity, compassion, joy). It is the need of society. A teacher must never treat child as a product.
4.Develop child’s own inherent interests:
According to some of educational methodology, children knows everything what a teacher needs is to work as a motivator. They do their own walking. So education must bring out the child’s own inherent interests.
5. Self-discovery and self-discipline:
To learn self- discipline must be the main objective of education, because without self-discipline, it is not possible to discover real self.
