Foster future professionals: Nurturing democracy in students

In pursuit of a workforce equipped to invigorate the manufacturing sector and elevate the competencies of the younger generation, the government is actively implementing a comprehensive education system. This endeavour places paramount importance on enhancing the capabilities of youth to create knowledgeable and skilled citizens throughout the nation.
As the nation progresses toward embracing an authentic and disciplined multiparty democratic system, it becomes imperative to instil democratic values within students from an early age. This process, however, must be carefully orchestrated to ensure that the intrinsic national character and cultural heritage remain intact. An optimal educational framework emerges when schools prioritize imparting not only sound democratic practices but also a deep understanding of democratic principles, setting the stage for an ideal educational paradigm.
The holistic development of the youth encompasses physical, mental, moral, fraternal, and economic dimensions, all of which hinge on knowledge acquisition. Despite the constitutional mandate (2008) stipulating compulsory primary education for all school-age children, the government aspires to align the education sector with evolving times by implementing a mandatory KG+9 education model.
A comprehensive grasp of the genuine and disciplined democratic system is essential for the youth. This is primarily because the tenets of democracy demand universal participation. Therefore, fostering a sense of civic responsibility and facilitating active engagement in endeavours aimed at restoring peace and stability across various sectors necessitate early exposure to democratic principles.

 

Youth who possess both education and a refined demeanour stand poised to seize pivotal opportunities. Demonstrating politeness in interpersonal interactions fosters mutual respect within society, thereby bolstering democratic values. It is incumbent upon educational institutions to take a forward-looking stance and incorporate lessons on democratic practices to equip youth with the necessary skills for a promising future.

 

Incorporating lessons on democratic practices into the curriculum yields twofold benefits: it equips young individuals to navigate their personal lives as well as contributes to societal advancement. Equipping youth with an understanding of democratic obligations nurtures responsible citizenship, a foundational requirement for contributing positively to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
Each young individual is duty-bound to contribute to the nation’s development, healthcare services, cultural preservation, diplomatic relations, and social progress. Ethical integrity goes beyond surface-level politeness, as even well-educated individuals might lack this crucial attribute. Mere education and moral uprightness, devoid of genuine politeness, may fall short of ensuring absolute success. The lack of tactfulness can, at times, lead to missed opportunities and setbacks.
