Home is the first school for every child. Education is a lifelong process and a new approach in the field of formal education is always watched with anxiety. The introduction of C.C.E by the C.B.S.E marks a paradigm shift in the approach to education. The chalk and talk method or the frontal teaching has given way to the child centered form of education. The teacher’s role has become more of a facilitator than a dictator in the Class – room environment.
It is viewed sceptically by a few educators and many guardians, and it is natural for all to be a bit anxious about the new approach. The new system infact inculcates in a child the love for all round development by putting special emphasis on Social, Cultural, Moral, Physical and Environmental arenas. It empowers him to become one to seek for knowledge than being a pimlve receiver. It minimizes the chance of cut-throat competition and encourages a healthy co-existential development. It lays stress on personality development and love for nature. We are sure that in the days to come we will reap the fruit of this new system.
