DUTY AWARENESS TIPS

The task of education is not merely that of turning out first-rate technicians and scientists, but even more urgently and basically, it is the task of training good men and women. *We must strive to make children learn to prefer co-operative effort, to self-seeking competition, joy of creative work to possessive happiness. *Motivation had to become an effect and not a cause.
