Teach fairness by example
Jayanti Roy

On children’s day, the school, which my children attended, organised several competitions. There were song and dance competitions, fancy dress and drawing competition for the junior groups while debates, paper reading and declamation competitions for the senior classes. After two-three days the results were declared and a prize distribution function was held.

The prize-winners were proud and happy but other students were sad, sorrowful or angry. Their parents were also resenting the results and were doubtful about the judgment. Amidst this bitterness a great opportunity was lost—an opportunity for the kids to learn, improve upon and correct their mistakes because the school did not think it fit to be open, clear and above doubt in this whole exercise.

The school should easily have announced the names of judges judging the events, their credentials and the parameters on which entries would be evaluated. They could have invited the parents to watch the performances. Drawings, paintings and posters could have been put up in an exhibition for all to see. This way everybody could have enjoyed, got involved, understood what they lacked and not repeat their mistakes the next time and the event could have been a positive step towards self improvement. Instead it was reduced to an unpleasant memory in the young kids’ minds.

I would say, ideally, the participants should have got individual feedback on their performance. Not only this, it could also have been a lesson for the students and their parents about how transparency, objectivity, fair dealing and non discrimination—some of the pillars of our democracy actually work in a real life situation. Aren’t we supposed to have transparency, fair dealing in our governance? How will the students learn it, if they do not see it in practice?

This closeness, secretive and hush-hush authoritative attitude runs in almost all the competitions that we come across right from the schools to the colleges. As if the organizers are really afraid of some chaotic riot if these details are divulged. Or worse, unfair practices are really going on behind the closed doors.

I still remember how in a district level competition among schools, we, the primary class students at that time got exposed to the bitter truth that only those schools will win whose teacher-coordinators have approach to the judges. That merit and talent do not actually matter and are at a lower premium than ‘contacts’ came as a big shock to us and it took a great effort on the part of my parent to make me shake off my belief.

There is no dearth of opportunities in our schools and colleges in the form of functions and festivals where our students can learn smooth organization, clarity in the objectives, openness, non-partisanship, prejudice-free, non-threat behaviour. We have beauty contests, youth festivals, and events like plays, poetry recital, mime, elocution, poster/collage/rangoli making, power-point presentation competitions and many more. The judges for these events, most of them academicians or experts, rarely give it a thought to speak a few sentences justifying their judgment.

They just announce the verdict and the losers grumble, unsatisfied and cast doubts about why the winner was a winner, pointing out to all kind of imaginable connections of the judges with the winner, without understanding at all about the shortcoming in their own presentations. The students who do not win have a right to know how they can improve. The judges who are experts in that area must give them tips about how these things are properly done, what mistakes are commonly made and how to overcome them.

The organizers, educators, academic administrators must give a thought about giving practical lessons in transparency and fair dealing by introducing these values in all the activities in the schools, colleges and universities. Otherwise, we cannot expect that once they are out of these institutions, they learn these values and start practicing them overnight to bring good governance in our society.

Revise curriculum, include ethics
D.S.Cheema

Deliverance from ignorance and attainment of knowledge should be the chief aim of one’s life because an ignorant man “ has eyes but does not see, has ears but does not hear, breathes but does not live”.

Education is essential for moulding youth into responsible citizens who fulfill their social obligations. Education and social system go together, so it is through education that the desired social order is possible.

The globalising economy has brought with it a new value system that is difficult to integrate into the Indian culture. Never has the time been so crucial to handle personality aspects of the youth as it is today. Students don’t invest time and energy in developing themselves to become useful citizens of the country and to adapt to the outside world.

Character is the most critical parameter and even then, it’s out of fashion to talk about it. It is as much the responsibility of every individual to evolve oneself and be able to use one’s potential to the maximum as it is of the education system. The students must learn to realise their full potential to be able to lead a meaningful life as useful members of the society.

The growing concern over the erosion of essential values and an increasing cynicism in society has brought to focus the readjustments in the curriculum in order to make education a forceful tool for the cultivation of social and moral values. Educational institutions must take a lead to make the students aware of our rich heritage, inculcate moral and ethical values and help them to develop their personality and become employable. The various organs of society need to initiate a movement to bring about social changes in the degenerated society through the teaching-learning process.

Unfortunately, at present, the curriculum of most of the subjects is loaded with heavy dosages of theory, which the student is expected to cram and reproduce in the examination.

Finding a slot for teaching subjects like heritage of India, character-building and personality development will remain difficult unless such subjects also exert the same amount of pressure on performance in terms of examinations at different stages. The curriculum of schools and colleges must be revised to include these subjects.

Students must be provided such inputs, which help them achieve “primary greatness”, i.e., self-sustaining success without compromising the fundamental tenets of character. A separate department/cell created within the institution for undertaking teaching-learning of the three subjects, should have suitable supporting staff and should preferably fall under the direct control of the principal. The department/cell should focus on the following areas:

Training and development of the students in educational institutions.

Writing and publishing literature in English, Hindi and in vernacular languages to meet the objectives of the department/cell.

Design and develop curriculum for NCERT/university for value-based learning.

Organise seminars/workshop on subjects of social relevance.

Organise talent search competition amongst value-based learners and select meritorious students for scholarship.

Help to set up other such departments/cells wherever a need is recognised.

Take up with government/ NCERT/universities to include cultural heritage of India, character-building and personality development as part of syllabi at different levels.

Act as knowledge repository for value-based learning.

The department/cell should engage core faculty to deliver the designed curriculum and coordinate all activities related with different courses and also create a pool of eminent resource persons who will complement and supplement the inputs provided by the core faculty.

Parameters for evaluating the terminal behaviour should be specifically listed, so that it can be qualitatively assessed. This will help in improving the syllabi, methods of instruction/delivery, quality of faculty, etc.

Every participant should go through pre-determined number of hours in a sequential manner, i.e., the syllabi should be so designed that as the participants move to next higher class in school/college, the level of inputs also increases. In higher classes, the inputs will reinforce and consolidate the previous inputs. Different modules with different order of difficulty to understand and imbibe can be designed for different levels of student.

Paucity of funds for such projects is often quoted as the main excuse by the institution for not implementing them. If projected properly, many sponsors are likely to come forward to make such a useful project a great success.

In our culturally plural society, education should foster universal and eternal values, oriented towards integration and unity of our people.

Such value-based education should help to eliminate obscurantism, religion fanaticism, superstition and fatalism. There is a definite decline in the value system of the youth of the country. No university, school, college or NGO related with education has done anything in this field. So, service to the society should become an important input for assessing any educational institution. This can become an important tool of social revolution in India.
