About Education Today, Society Tomorrow
Teachers are called ‘nation builders.’ If that is true, what sort of nation/world have we built over the years? The most impressionable part of a person’s life is spent in school. This is the time one’s attitudes and values are shaped. That means, as teachers, we have a significant role in shaping a child’s personality. As teachers, are we doing justice to our roles as ‘nation builders’ and ‘torchbearers of civilization’? This question is a major concern to educators. ETST workshops bring the spotlight to values in education which will lead to the formation of an ethical society.
Several educators responded to the challenge and joined this life-changing journey. After 28 years, the learnings from the ETST workshops have been crystallized into five essential components: Self-Awareness, Ethical Governance, Compassionate Leadership, Respect for Diversity, and Empathetic Service to Society. These components provide a ready framework for schools to adopt the spirit and practice of the core principles of lofC.
