NEW PARADIGMS AND MODELS FOR EDUCATION

Education is actually the name of a state of mind in which humanitarian ideas and thoughts, wisdom and emotions are constantly developed because without it just getting degree does not fulfill the purpose of education. Education has two purposes, first to learn how to live and second to learn how to make living. Being mentally educated is more important than getting a degree. And it gives us the criteria of respecting others as it should base upon someone’s talent, academic and social achievements, simplicity, truthfulness, honesty, strong social and national character and being a useful citizen rather than wealth, designation or status based standards. Culturally the world is getting deteriorated, the evidence of which can be practically observed from the world politics. Implementation of an educational system of practical respect for humanitarian values would be the best thing for the whole world which will not only enable the cultural development but economic system also on international level. An educational system of an equal opportunity and useful for all the classes of all the countries should be implemented as soon as possible because the world has reached to a stage where illiteracy can become the biggest power of the world. The implementation of a practical educational system will project wisdom and consequently the intellectual will have better respect in the society particularly in developing countries. The current educational system needs drastic changes on international level to introduce system of mental education of humanitarian thoughts and practical training for degree and non-degree holders both. And implementation of an internationally common subject of global ethics has become inevitable for prevailing peace love and harmony on global level disregarding religious, racial and regional differences. There is need of mentally refining the uneducated individuals and training them for better employment opportunities along with educated ones.
