It was sometime in the year 2002, Anand had come across a notification by NCERT in THE HINDU about the “All India Competition for Teachers and Teacher Educators - lnnovative Practices and Experiments in School Education and Teacher Education”.

Recently I came across a reminder issued by the Principal of a reputed educational institution to his teachers.

...Please speed up and complete at least minimum 6 to 7 admissions before March 25 or else the salaries will be kept in hold...

I was late. I had promised I would reach by 9 AM but by the time I walked through the gate of the Ashram, it was noon. I had sent a SMS about the delay so I was relatively guilt free when I walked through the gate of the school premises. I saw two boys outside the class, they looked sheepish. I asked them in my Marathi-English- “punishment midala ka? “ (Did you get punished?). They shuffled their feet in response. Peeked in to see Sushama taking a class.

Primarily a child who comes to the school must always be the prime focus in any education system. Lot has been said about ‘child centered’ education but what does it mean? In fact it has been left to the teachers’ discretion to define it in their own way. The child invariably gets mixed signals as there are pretty many teachers & their idiosyncracies to negotiate per year, each year.

Punitive Actions to Teach Discipline and Subject

By parveenwrites | Sep 29, 2016

There has been news about teachers beating the children at school or scolding them badly. We who say that we have learnt from stric teachers can not favour the beatings today. It is not about child-rights or about human rights. I wish to ask, Do the Teachers beat kids because they know less of teaching (might be full of knowledge)? What approach a school should have about inculcating discipline and stopping Punitive Actions?

Role of Non-Government Organisations in improving teaching standards in India

By Kumar589 | Jul 14, 2016

For any program to be successful we need a third eye , it could be watchful or a guiding hand.

I work at STiR Education which believes in empowering teachers to be change-makers working on their motivation levels and on how society perceives the teaching profession in totality. This is my 3rd year at STiR team and I would like to share my learnings in the education field with them & through them which I am sure will ring an immediate bell.

By aksheyjawa | Apr 25, 2016

Dear all,

Can you please suggest how a school can teach character strengths or spiritual qualities like - love/compassion, fearlessness, honesty, will power, calmness/peace, patience, selflessness, etc ? Idea is not just to teach but help them build these strengths also.
