Hol(e)-istic education

This article by Sharanya, Sonal and Vijayalakshmi examines the artificial divide that the education system has created between ‘cognitive’ and so-called ‘non-cognitive’ skills, and the lower importance placed to the latter. It draws attention to the need for developing the latter in children in order to effectively meet the aims of education laid out in the national Curriculum Framework 2005. It highlights the benefit of looking at the ‘non-cognitive’ skills as a part of all the things that a child learns and does in the school, instead of seeing them separately.
