Project: Education in Human Values
Two years ago, the general office of Education and Culture of the city of Palotina (Brazil) introduced in their municipal, state and private schools a project Education in Human Values, whose pedagogy was created by Sri Sathya Sai Baba in India.
This educational methodology seeks character building by unity of thought, word and deed. It is grounded in the practice of five human values through specific techniques: Love (songs), Truth (quotation/prayers), Peace (silence sitting), Righteousness (story telling) and No-violence (group activities), which should be integrated into the curricular and extracurricular contents.
The general office provides the teachers' training through seminars coordinated by the Institute of Sathya Sai Education, study groups for all the professionals of the education network, lectures for parents, classroom attendance and didactic and pedagogic material for the application of the methodology.
The results: higher self-esteem, correction of psychological disturbances, learning improvement, better group integration and more harmony in the personal, professionals and social relationships.
