An official of CVC said “We have recommended the inclusion of lessons on ethics in school curriculum as it has been done in several developing countries, so that we inculcate values in society and reduce tolerance to corruption”. He also said that the CVC is also planning to write to school administration in this regard.
This matter has been discussed by the commission, with officials of Ministry of Human Resources Development and reached an in-principle agreement in this regard. It is said to be implemented in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) affiliated school in a phased manner soon. At the same time it plans to form integrity clubs in schools to discuss various aspects of corruption in society and the country.
“The Commission is concerned over corruption and its impact on the society. The inclusion of anti corruption lessons will bolster our fight”, said the official. The responsibility head for checking corruption in central government departments and public sector units including Banks is The Central Vigilance Commission. It investigates and recommend punishment in graft cases involving government officials.
Based on the act undertaken by the CVC, an official expressed as “We strongly feel the need of having anti-corruption lessons in school curriculum. After examining the results of pilot projects in CBSE schools, we will ask other Boards to do the same”.
What do you say? Is it necessary to have anti-corruption lesson in schools? Will it bring out positive results? Can this step keep our country away from 'CORRUPTION'.
