Mukandi Lal Sheila Hayde (MLSH) Society
I Learn • I Do • I Excel
Education is humanity’s best hope and most effective means in the quest to achieve sustainable development.
-This powerful statement was made in 1997 in the UNESCO report, Educating for a Sustainable Future.
Based on the ideology of the French sociologist Emile Durkheim who saw the major function of education as the transmission of society’s norms and values, Mukandi Lal Sheila Hayde Society was registered with the thought that Education is vital for democracy to work.
The MLSH society understands the challenges Indian education system faces, and the great anxiety we feel about our future. The Society works with the belief that we need to be able to hold the complexity of our challenges, construct ideas together, and work toward creative solutions, and not rely on inadequate systems which exist.
MLSH society believes education is the foundation to a healthy democracy and development of our humanity. It should help students to not only engage in the public decision-making and economic systems but transform these systems to work for the entire society.
MLSH society believes that we need to respect teachers, honor their professionalism, and support the development of their skills in pedagogy. The MLSH society acknowledges that we are not manufacturing products; we are creating the conditions for CHILDREN to grow and develop.
This is the society’s hopeful message for a hopeful future.
