Why is there a need of moral values ?

Values of a person (imparted by parents and teachers) lead him/her to tread the good or bad pathway. It was the moral values only by which Shivaji, Vinobaji, Jagdish Chandra Basu and Ramanajun were honoured worldwide. For the bright future of students high education and good manners are the basic need. A student must have the moral values like respect for parents and teachers, moral ethics, patience, austerity, self discipline, benevolence, sincerity, simplicity, veracity, nobility, magnanimity, humility, politeness, courtesy and obedience.

What is the best medium of instruction?

As per established scientific researches and government recommendations, the best medium of instruction is one’s mother-tonque atleast till class 8 since this is what the child sees all around its environment. According to a latest report ( March 2012) published in Times of India based on study by National University of Education, Planning and Administration (NUEPA) under its District Information System for Education :"There is a wealth of research which shows that the best medium of instruction for a child to have a conceptual understanding of a subject is his mother-tongue. Just because people want their children to study English does not mean that they need to enroll them at an English-medium school. "If Indian-language schools did a good job teaching English, parents would not need to send their children to English-medium schools," said R Govinda, vice-chancellor of NUEPA.

 Also As per former Indian President Dr. ABJ Abdul kalam, Studying in mother tongue gives a child a chance to be more creative as well innovative since he does not have to focus on learning language but instead focuses on the concept.
