Summary
Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia spoke with over 1500 private school staff members on incorporating three government-run programmes into school curricula with special emphasis on mindset of students
The proposed programmes revolve around subjects like the mental wellbeing of students, instilling an entrepreneurial mindset among students and nationalism

Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia appealed to principals of private schools in the union territory to consider incorporating the Delhi government's flagship programmes like Happiness Curriculum, Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum and Deshbhakti Curriculum in their education routine.

He interacted with over 1,500 private school principals and teachers at Thyagaraj Stadium to discuss the importance of ‘mindset curricula’ and the need for their implementation across all schools of Delhi.

"All private schools should consider including mindset curriculums in mainstream education routines. Let us all create India's new-age society with new-age thoughts. Along with subjects, schools must take responsibility for every student's mindset,” he said.

"We must ensure that they (students) learn to find the solution to the biggest problems of society like corruption, pollution, poverty, unemployment, women and child safety. Just as any subject cannot be taught to children by teaching only one day a week, mindset cannot be developed in children without teaching it daily. Therefore, private schools need to adopt the mindset curriculum scientifically," he told the school principals.

He claimed that almost all schools are dedicated to helping students attain a certain level in a few subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Language, Social Sciences, which does not guarantee an enhancement of their attitude, thinking and approach.

Sisodia, who is also the education minister of Delhi, added that along with the subjects, schools must take responsibility for every student's mindset.

"This will set an education revolution and create a developed nation, where every student will be emotionally, academically and professionally sound. Education provided to students without the development of their mindset is always incomplete," he said.
