We have often found ourselves discussing the unemployable nature of our youth, not because there is anything wrong with individuals, but a malaise that stems from, our, inappropriate system of education.
It starts right at the foundation, in elementary school. It is this need that Amukta and her team at SchoolScape have been attempting to address. Her trust and belief in the Montessori methods, and her work in the field of education for close to three decades, has resulted in appreciation and gratitude from all quarters. She has worked tirelessly to produce a breed of willing, keen and motivated teachers, through the Montessori system.
Amuktas efforts have even resulted in SchoolScape being made a partner in innovative methods of learning being introduced into government schools in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Gujarat.
The facility in Bengaluru, Karnataka will fill a long felt need, to have Montessori training available in an area with such a large number of schools.
I wish Amukta and all members of SchoolScape, many more successes in the years to come.
