The importance of education in the life of an individual cannot be overstated. It shapes the individuals in their formative years. It is said ‘If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people’. Indeed, one can even say that the quality of education will determine the destiny of the nation.
For me, Education does not mean providing answers. It means equipping the pupil with the means to find the answers for himself and within himself. Education empowers learners to discover themselves- who they are as people. Within each learner is a doctor, an engineer, a teacher, a social activist, a sports person, an environmentalist, a poet, an author or an economist.
