A strong education system is the backbone of any nation. As literacy brings awareness, which leads towards objectivity and turns into setting targets and finally achieving goals which are not only related to personal achievements but which are also for the benefit of society. All schools should strive hard to provide the kind of education which will prepare the students to create a world of positivity , peace, prosperity and progress. The present generation has to be prepared to be well equipped to be a part of this competitive world by learning and excelling in their fields .They have to be competent to take care of the crises of poverty, corruption, terrorism and also the exploitation of the weaker and underprivileged section of society and learn to be above the discrimination of religion, caste , creed and gender.I believe that no syllabus can prepare a child as perfect human being but only by creating the right awareness such aims can be achieved which is a herculine task.The future of any country depends upon the right kind of education provided to them so that finally they emerge as winners!!
