CHENNAI: The first batch of 38 - teachers and parents - graduated from a training programme offered by the Indian Montessori Training Courses (IMTC) on ways to treat children while educating them, here on Friday.
A seminar on ‘Education without fear’ was organised along with the graduation event to discuss the issues plaguing education in schools.
"More than 70 percent of children today struggle to follow the road map designed by the adults not only at home but also in schools," said Geeta Radhakrishnan, Director, Board of Studies, IMTC, while addressing the seminar.
By educating children on the lines of ‘If you do not do this, you have to face consequences,’ we are only instilling fear in the minds of children in their tender age, she added.
“Students should enjoy coming to school and learn. Not all children are good at academics, some have alternate talents too. As a parent and teacher, one should understand what the child wants," she said.
IMTC Director Uma Shankar said that during the course, they train teachers and parents on ways to approach children and understand their needs and interests.
"Pre-school students in Montessori of age two and a half years old to six, work in the same classroom and teachers are trained to understand individual students to help them succeed in their life than training them
for employment or career," he said.
