Transform students from 'believers' to 'seekers' through education, urges spiritual leader Sadhguru principals of Kendriya and Navodaya Vidyalays
A two-day joint conclave of the Principals of Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) and Navodaya Vidyalays (NVs) was held recently which was addressed by various luminaries on value education including spiritual leader Sadhguru of Isha Foundation, who stressed the need for freeing education from mechanisation of learning, scientism and textbook orientation.

He stated that right from school level to further at college and PhD level, science was being viewed as a religion and what was written in the textbook being taken as ultimate. 

He stressed the need for viewing science as an exploration and question that was written in science textbooks since that was not the final truth. "We have suffered this rubbish for a long time. We don't have to take that into our future," he added saying further that we however needed to question everything with reverence. To acquire scientific temprament we should become a community of 'seekers' rather than 'believers'. He also unlined the need for respecting the diversity of learners "we will not create a variety of people we need for this nation's well-being". For this education should adjusted to suit the diversity of learners. 

HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar termed KVs and NVS role models for the government school system in India. He also launched the FitKVian app for the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan Swasth Bachche under Swasth Bharat Programme. 

He also announced that from the ensuing session, the 'four-year integrated B.Ed course' will be introduced for preparing quality teachers so as to hape 'the future of the country.'
