Gitanjali International, the worldwide School, shines on the road of excellence by focusing on two goals: academic and moral excellence. Education primarily serves to prepare a person to be good and a good citizen of the world. True education and sustainable development are linked, as is a millennium development goal (MDG) to rescue the earth. Scientific knowledge and technical know-how may lead to sorrow as well as wealth and happiness when they are not controlled by a moral force.
True education, then, is defined as the acquisition of knowledge, qualities, skills, attitudes, and capacities that enable individuals to become conscious subjects of their own development and active participants in a systematic process of building an ever-advancing civilization. The Preamble to the Constitution, the Fundamental Duties enshrined in the Constitution, and the National Policy of Education 1986-1992 modifications all emphasised the importance of including universal values.
The School of Human Values is thus an essential issue that has to be fostered at all levels of education, it was said. In this domain, several research and innovation efforts have been made. In its Ninth Plan (1996), the University Grants Commission stated that value education should be given emphasis. Article 51A of the Indian Constitution enumerates the fundamental duties of every citizen, which include the obligations to promote harmony and spirit of common brotherhood amongst all the people of India to renounce practises derogatory to the dignity of women’ and to strive for excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity.
