Education for Peace in the Light of National Curriculum Framework — 2005

Ajit Mondal, Jayanta Mete

Abstract


ABSTRACT: We live in an age of unprecedented levels of violence, with constant threats posed by intolerance, fanaticism, dispute, and discordance. Ethical action, peace, and welfare are facing new challenges. A strong need is being felt by educationists, philosophers, scientists, and political leaders to rejuvenate the human values, which may bring long lasting peace on this planet. The purpose of education goes beyond the propagation of knowledge. J. Delor’s Report (1996) on learning to live together as the central pillar of education proposes that education must be geared to promote a culture of peace, tolerance, democratic values, human rights, and duties among students. With the reality of the alarming increase in violence in school life, the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005 strongly advocates education for peace at all levels of schools. In this backdrop, the present paper tries to epitomise the concept of education for peace in the light of NCF 2005. Peace and living together have been integral part of Indian way of living and manifested in its Constitution through various articles. It firmly believes that inculcation of certain values among younger generation would help them to exist in the dynamic socio-cultural fabric with peace, harmony, and prosperity. In the final section, approach, strategies, activities, and teacher’s role in education for peace in the landscape of school education are also addressed as envisaged in the NCF 2005.

KEY WORDS: Education, peace, human values, harmony, tolerance, democracy, national curriculum framework, and India’s government and society.
