The objective of education is to relate it to the life, needs and aspirations of the people and thereby make it the powerful instrument of social, economic and cultural transformation. Education is cardinal in inculcating values, to provide skills and competencies for the citizens, and in enabling them to contribute to the nation’s well-being; strengthens democracy by empowering citizens; becomes an adhesive for the society, and instrumental in entrenching cosmopolitan values among all. Education should be a tool for inculcating values like compassion, knowledge, objectivity, skills and thereby aids in leading a quality and wholesome life which contribute in the country’s development. Education could prove as a potent weapon in waning a chasm between the society which is as of now divided on the line of social, economic and political. Education should make pupil trailblazers with independent thought than only in true sense we can achieve the goal of Gandhian “Swaraj”.
“Students must be taught how to think, not what to think”
Human being is a whole one, we cannot think of mind and body separately. Therefore, a proper and all-round development of the mind can take place only when it proceeds pari passu with the education of the physical and spiritual faculties of the child. According to Gurmarg the fulcrum of education must be based on the three values – Equity, Quality and Accessibility. The aim and objective of Gurmarg Educare is to build citizens who live joyfully and consciously in the society and can see things objectively without prejudices. This process will help students to become a rational being who can think out of box and unconventionally.
