Udupi: The Karnataka regional convention of YCS and YSM has decided to implement uniform syllabus and use of modern technology in education. A discussion on “Students’ Education in Modern Era” was held as the part of the YCS and YSM convention organised at St Mary’s School here on Monday, October 19.
Present day education is job oriented and does not focus on building the capacity for individuals to form opinions. The heads of institutions should appoint counselors in their educational institutions to counsel the students. Educational institutions should build infrastructure and at the same time, should also focus on personality development of individuals. The Digital India concept visualised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be effectively used to impart quality education with technical interfaces. The education system should be free from corruption.
The views recorded in the convention under the leadership of Francis D’Cunha and Secretary of Karnataka Regional Education Commission, Fr Eugene will be sent to the Education Minister through the district minister in-charge during the concluding ceremony of the convention.
Other discussions were held on issues concerning the environment under the leadership of Dr Ravindranath Shanbhag, president of Human Rights Protection Forum Udupi. Discussions were also held on media by Fr Denis D’Sa. Fr Deepak Thomas K J celebrated the Eucharistic mass for the day.
The convention will culminate on October 20. More than 1500 youth will be participating in the rally. The rally will start from Mother of Sorrows Church, Udupi and will culminate near the venue of the convention. K Annamalai, the District Superintendent of Police, will flag off the rally.
