Fr.George Athaide, ABE Director, gave a brief introduction to the forum.This was followed with a very effective,simple and convincing talk by Dr.Ram Puniyani on the subject of Communal historiography and its divisive role. Sr.Noella DeSouza continued the session after break on the need for Inclusivity in Education today.
Panel discussions after every talk made us educators realize that our education methodology and learning must help each and every child feel that they are special and their dignity is respected. As educators we need to value each and every child regardless of colour, intellect and talents. Quality inclusive education helps develop life skills.The AVEC awards were distributed thereafter.
