Deep Roots is a program designed for to complement modern education. we believe that learning is trans generational and should be kept alive forever. Hence me and my children should be able to share knowledge and evolve together. I believe in learning from my eleven year daughter and believe me there are quite some things that I have picked up from the little monster.
Indian education system is wonderful in its own way. however there are little dots that still need to be connected. For some reason we strongly feel that it is irrelevant to test children on subjects that are not utility based like communication skills or arithmetic skills. Grading leads in lot of negative energy built up towards the overall concept of gaining knowledge for the sake of learning. Rarely children are invited for soulful reading and not tested not the same.
Ambitious parents and aspirational schools are putting undue pressure on kids and exposing them with choices unlimited. Research says that Indian students are facing tremendous increase in stress and there is a steep rise in suite rate as well. Children are falling for drugs and untimely sexual experiences as they take it to be easy escapes from day to day stress.
“As soon as I come from school, I have to rush for tuition. Post that I have tennis class that goes on till two hours. The coach is hard on us and its difficult for me to come back and study again which is expected out of me” said Anahita, a class eighth student of a prestigious school in Gurgaon.
Life is not a race and parents and teachers need to identify with different children and their needs with empathy. Deep roots is a program that is created in sync with educationists and corporate trainers in order to bring the best to our children. We believe in teaching what the regular school leaves out of its curriculum. Our mission is to lead the schools from better to best. Each child is unique and so we complement the school to create a unique program for every child.Deep roots is a program powered by Wisdom Valley Foundation to bring together a positive change in their lives.
