NEW DELHI: Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan called upon the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to prepare a framework for encouraging value-based education in all schools. Pradhan was speaking at the launch of Ramakrishna Mission’s ‘Awakening’ programme for students of Classes 1 to 5.

“I call upon CBSE to institute an advisory framework for encouraging value-based education in all schools from Balvatika to Class XII for creating a talent pool ready for the challenges of life and committed to national progress and global welfare,” the education minister said in a tweet.

The education minister said that the programme is a step towards ensuring complete personality development of a child aligned with the philosophy of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

“NEP 2020 is deeply inspired by the philosophy of Swami Vivekananda. From Swami Vivekananda to Sri Aurobindo and Mahatma Gandhi, many of our greats envisioned an education system that is progressive and rooted in our civilisational values to take the country forward,” Pradhan stated.

Pradhan went on to say that the Ramakrishna Mission has a legacy of imparting applied education. At a time when we are implementing NEP 2020, it must also lay emphasis on creating such value-based educational programmes for the last cohort of NEP 2020 in addition to creating programmes for classes I to VIII, he said.

“Our education system must be aligned to national priorities. We have to create 21st century citizens capable of taking global responsibilities. NEP 2020 with focus on a teacher-led holistic education system for students is a step in that direction. Social transformation is one of the key goals of education. Values and wisdom are more important than material wealth. Value-based education is important for building a future-ready and socially conscious generation,” further said Dharmendra Pradhan.
