Value education for students: Ramakrishna Mission joins hands with CBSE

Ramakrishna Mission started by Swami Vivekananda has now joined hands with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for providing value education to the students studying in the affiliated schools. Ramakrishna Mission with the objective of strengthening, promoting and developing cooperation and other values among the students has designed this Value Education project which is called as ‘Awakened Citizen Programme’ for both teachers and the students. According to the board officials, it is an optional programme.


According to the board officials, values such as harmony, peace, compassion and humility have for centuries been a part of the discourse of every society of the world and their need and importance is universally accepted and felt. These values will be promoted through the Value Education scheme. Under this initiative, Ramakrishna Mission and the CBSE have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The Ramakrishna Mission has appointed special officers to ensure smooth cooperation between all the stakeholders in the successful implementation of the project.


The programmes is a three-year graded Values Education programme for students of class 6, 7 and 8 (or 7, 8 and 9). The Awakened Citizen Programme acknowledges the potential of young learners and empowers them to harness their infinite strength and goodness and provides them with a path to develop into enlightening citizens. It offers a wide variety and enables them to explore and develop universal values.


Under the project, the Ramakrishna Mission would facilitate by providing tools, programme material and teachers’ training so that the teachers may transact the same to their students. The schools that opt for this programme are required to allot 16 periods per year and are to be committed for a minimum period of three years. As the programme involves initial two days’ training of teachers conducted in the school, the schools desirous of enrolling into the programmes are directed to register with the Ramakrishna Mission.


According to the board officials, apart from the initial training of teachers, Ramakrishna Mission resource persons will be available to hand-hold teachers through scheduled school visits and over telephone and email.
