Education in Hindu schools

Today in a fast changing world decaying values seem to be evident in many areas of human activities including K-12 schools.

Though K-12 Education can be managed effectively by using corporate principles, many of our schools including those run by Hindu organisations don't seem to apply them correctly. One main reason for this is the undue obsession for `marks' and `ranks' even at the cost of discipline and values. As service providers, many schools seem to simply follow this odd trend and impart education which isn't values oriented.

It is in this context that articles such as this one will be highly useful in schools which follow Hindu philosophy.
