Change in Direction

 “Every  effort needs to be made to inspire ‘every child’ to become both ‘good and smart’ or ‘good’ before ‘smart’”.

More can be expected from education. Its goals need to be reorganized to take into consideration the new needs of individuals and society today. Education also needs to visualize a different role and a different outcome. For example :

  • Instead of seeing itself as provider of content, education should view itself as providers of a service.
  • Instead of viewing itself as educating for success in exams, education should view itself as molding human potential for success in life.
  • Instead of seeing itself as provider of academic content, education should consider it important to provide character and values training.
  • Instead of creating job-seekers, it should seek to prepare human potential for leadership.
  • Instead of preparing for material success, it should provide a balanced development of material, human and spiritual.

Pragyan has shown it is possible to organize education differently without adding to the workload. Change in direction does not mean more work. It more often means a different kind of work and a different kind of mind-set. There is no doubt it is difficult to change mind-sets and difficult to implement change.

Moral education gets priority

Another very important aspect of Pragyan education is the priority given to moral education together with physical and intellectual education. The moral development of individuals equips them with a sense of mission, hope, vision and a firm basis to appreciate, be eager to acquire and be able to use knowledge, skills and physical capabilities in a way that will be most helpful to themselves and to others. Value are taught at Pragyan in non-intrusive way to its religiously diverse student body from the Hindu, Muslim, Chiristian, Jain, Sikh, Parsi and other faiths. Pragyan has shown that a school can teach divine values effectively by endorsing spiritual values with infringing upon the religious identity of individual students.

Teacher – Guardian Programme and Home-Visits

For the Home & Board Examination, Pragyan’s Teachers, Principal and Management strive hard. They take it personally upon themselves to ensure success. Teachers visit the home of the students and provide useful guidance and support to them both on a regular basis and as and when needed. Home-visits by the Pragyan’s Teachers have been found to be very effective in fostering a strong communication bond between school and home as well as among teachers, students and their parents. Many of these relationships go beyond the school years and the students and their parents continue to keep in touch with Pragyan’s Teachers.
