THE PROBLEM

The need for focusing on development of socio emotional skills arises from two aspects which constitute the sad state of affairs of the Indian education system:

1. Obsolete education system lacking socio-emotional learning & technology exposure :

The current education system was built on the principles of first and second industrial revolution mostly for clerical roles, with no room for cognitive skills or OVERALL development of children. The third and fourth Industrial revolution have altered the course of humans, and the nature of jobs in the current world.
