Education for job, profit ruins social fabric: Veerappa Moily
Golden jubilee celebrations of Bharati Education Trust
Stating that job-oriented courses and education for end ‘profit’ or lucrative results does not contribute towards building a healthy society, but works against it, Union minister Veerappa Moily said it should help the youth imbibe values.
He inaugurated the golden jubilee celebrations of Bharati Education Trust at Bharati Nagar here on Sunday.
“Education should condition a person to become an integral part of the society and not stand outside it. It should help him gain knowledge along with principles of love and respect for his/her fellows,” Moily said.
“None of the children are born dumb. It is the responsibility of the people in the society to identify the traits and talents and direct the child towards harnessing them and hone the skills based on that. Children must be taught to think positively, and not nurse negative emotions such as anger, and frustration,” he added.
“It is imperative to have good teachers in order to improve the standard of education. Hence, educational institutions should invest on training, adding skills, reorientation and rejuvenation of teachers on a regular basis.
The average age of an Indian by 2020 would be 29, hence the country would have a huge base of aptly-aged human resource,” he said.
“Ex-MP Madegowda has created some sort of a revolution in the field of education by starting an educational institution in a small town and educating generations in the area,” he said, lauding the efforts of Bharati Education Trust and its endeavours.
Former minister and MLA D K Shivakumar, who released a souvenir, said Madegowda has done a commendable job of imparting education, and with that, helping generations dream of a better life and society through this.
“As an MLA, Gowda has done something beyond his call of duty. This educational institution has helped scores find better future,” he said.
Chairperson of the educational institution G Madegowda, MP N Chaluvarayaswamy, MLC M Marithibbegowda, MLAs Kalpana Siddaraju and P M Narendraswamy, ZP president M T Suresh, GP president Radha Siddappa, CEO Madhu Madegowda, University of Mysore VC V G Talwar and others were present on the occasion.
