The basic objective of the education system is not only to widen the mental horizons of the child, but also to build her character and enhance her aesthetic faculties. It should teach her tolerance and broadmindedness, dispel superstition and degrading social customs, teach her the best that has been thought and said in the world and to cultivate a spirit of free enquiry and independent thinking. Its sole ambition is not that the students should attain 90% marks in their board exams, but that they should be cultured, educated, disciplined, self-reliant, confident and worthy citizens of a new and modern India, well equipped to meet the current challenges.
In today’s techno world more stress to be given to the technological education and the school must create full fledged facilities for science and information technology.
Although most of the schools have already become totally involved in science, IT education, internet and other facilities, the need of the hour is not to leave a stone unturned to achieve the ultimate goal in these fields. The school must act as a messenger clubbed with the latest scientific and technological advancement of the highest order filled with the value system imbibed in every student who enters and passes out and should act as a role model for the rest of the country.
As of date, our country though capable enough, is far behind many countries of the world in the fields of engineering, medicine, commerce, science and technology and computer education. To meet out the above basic challenges the curriculum should include such activities which would be helpful in shaping the characters of the students. In the changing national scenario, the needs of the students, particularly adolescents have undergone tremendous change and multiplied many folds. This has resulted into preparing ourselves to meet the creative, intellectual, emotional and physical needs of the growing generation. The challenge to fruitfully provide these needs stands in front of competent teachers who should not only be capable enough to teach their respective subjects but should also be able to establish rapport with the adolescents by sharing with them creative and adventure interests. To put these into practice or turn into reality, we need to organize periodical seminars, conferences, workshops, and other curricular and non curricular activities at the regional as well as at the national level.
