Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development dumps BKWSU

Interviewing to put an end to the tie-up between the Brahma Kumari organisation and the Central Board of Secondary Education (Kendriya Vidyalayas) for value education lessons after an Indian Express report on the issue, the Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) is set to evolve a full-fledged Value Education curriculum for schools. A Rs 100-crore plan to partner with the Ramakrishna Paramhansa Foundation to develop Value Education content for schools has also got in-principle approval, sources said.

Meanwhile, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal is learnt to have sought a response from the Kendriya Vidyalya Sangathan over their tie-up with the Brahma Kumaris to impart weekly lessons in Value Education. He has directed the KVs to put a stop to any further association with the organisation pending the new Value Education format being prepared by the Ministry.

The issue of value education had figured prominently in Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s address when the Committee met for the first time last month. “I am happy that among the proposals we have received is one from the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission in Belur that is based on this theme... I think that thought should be given to how we can mainstream some of Swami Vivekananda’s ideas on education into our school and college curricula,” the PM had said.
