Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Monday called on directors of private schools in the city to consider including his government’s flagship programs such as the Happiness Curriculum, the Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum and the Deshbhakti Curriculum in their teaching routine. Here he interacted with more than 1,500 private school principals and teachers at Thyagaraj Stadium to discuss the importance of mindset curricula and the need to implement them in all schools of Delhi.
“All private schools should consider incorporating mindset curricula into mainstream education routines. Let’s all create India’s new age society with new age thoughts. In addition to the subjects, schools must take responsibility for the mentality of each student. “We must ensure that they learn to find solutions to society’s biggest problems, such as corruption, pollution, poverty, unemployment, the safety of women and children. Just as no subject can be taught to children by teaching only one day a week, a mindset cannot be developed in children without teaching it daily. That is why private schools should scientifically adopt the mindset curriculum,” he told the directors.
Sisodia to date regretted no work on the mentality of children in the country. “The education system has not taken the responsibility to develop the mentality of children and it has always been thought that the thinking of children is developed by the family and society. There is no participation of the education system in it.
“As a result, almost all schools today guarantee that their students will be at a certain level in subjects such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, language, social sciences, but there is no guarantee about their attitude, thinking and approach,” he said. The Delhi Education Minister added that in addition to the subjects, schools should take responsibility for the mindset of every student. “This will spark an educational revolution and create a developed nation where every student will be emotionally, academically and professionally healthy. Education of students without developing their mindset is always incomplete,” he said.
