Education must prepare children for a future


Education must prepare children for a future we do not know, a future that is unstable, unpredictable and ambiguous. But equally, we must also prepare them to deal with global challenges like climate change, rising inequalities, and the struggle between man and nature.

These are scientifically well documented, and the warnings are clear. Yet we are doing nothing about them except talking and talking. In order to grapple with these challenges, children need greater autonomy and empowerment.

(This is the essence of the message brought to newly elected Leaders of The Indus Student Council at Bangalore, by Lt. Gen. Arjun Ray (Retd.), CEO of the Indus Trust on the occasion of The Ceremony of Investiture on January 26th, 2012)
