The Essence & Role of Education

2.1 In our national perception education is essentially for all. This is fundamental to our all-round development, material and spiritual.

2.2 Education has an acculturating role. It refines sensitivities and perceptions that contribute to national cohesion, a scientific temper and independence of mind and spirit -- thus furthering the goals of socialism, secularism and democracy enshrined in our constitution.

2.3 In sum, Education is a unique investment in the present and the future. This cardinal principle is the key to the National Policy on Education.
