The principal goal of education in the schools, colleges and Universities should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.
It is also very important to realize that education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
Education…is painful, continual and difficult work to be done in kindness, by watching, by warning,… by praise, but above all — by example. Also the job of an educator is to teach students to see the vitality in themselves.
There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fills you with so much quail shot that you can’t move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.
Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, and teach them to think straight, if possible.
The important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle.
Creativity is especially expressed in the ability to make connections, to make associations, to turn things around and express them in a new way. Stay committed to your decisions; but stay flexible in your approach. Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of becoming .
Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three.
Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers.
The Philosophy of the college is to adhere to the values of good governance on a consistent basis. The college is guided by the Basic Education principles and Rules and Regulations laid down by the UGC, Calcutta University and the Higher Education Council of the state from time to time. The Institution has also its own code of conduct to follow. The College Governing Body places considerable emphasis on compliance therewith and it is aimed at providing good governance.
