Views and Perspectives:

From ancient times, education has been a powerful tool to help an individual realise his or her full potential and grow into a well rounded, cultured human being capable of making a worthwhile contribution to society. Today's educational system, however, more often than not merely equips the students with the skills and information required for earning a livelihood. It offers knowledge about that which is transitory and ephemeral as if it were everlasting. It can fall short in building character and instilling moral values, because not all educators are themselves ideal role models able to behave with good character and self-mastery. As a result, young people today lack self-control, emotional maturity and moral strength. Experiencing a profound inner emptiness, they are attracted to drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, destructive activity, violence and other anti-social behaviour. The standard of morality in society now exhibits a downward trend that is very challenging to reverse.

The Education Wing is meeting this challenge by promoting value-based education, for Wing members believe that education can play a vital role in creating a better world only when it is value-based.

The Wing organises campaigns, fairs and annual conferences, as well as dialogues and seminars on current issues within the field of education to promote value-based education. It has also developed a syllabus and curriculum for values training, and Wing members conduct teacher training courses based on this curriculum both at BK headquarters and elsewhere. The Wing also organises annual Personality Development Camps for children Politician Wing
