Impart value-based education, teachers told

By Our Staff Correspondent



The Chief Whip in the Legislative Assembly, K. Abhayachandra Jain, speaking at the Teachers' Day celebrations in Mangalore on Sunday.

MANGALORE, SEPT. 5. Teachers should impart value-based education to students along with the prevailing "information-based" education system, K. Balakrishna Bhat, MLC, said here today.

Speaking at a function organised by the Department of Public Instruction to celebrate Teachers' Day at the Town Hall here, Mr. Bhat said that "information-based" education system had sidelined values of life. As a result, society was witnessing degradation of values in many sectors. Teachers had a greater responsibility in infusing values in children, he said.

The MLC said that teachers should set high ideals before children by inculcating good values in their life. He took exception to what he termed "dumping" information in textbooks meant for lower primary school children.

K. Abhayachandra Jain, Chief Whip, Karnataka Government, said that the responsibility of teachers in the competitive era had increased. They could mould children to contribute for the development of the nation.
