Education and Character are two sides of the same coin and one without the other is meaningless. Money may come and go but it is the character that counts from beginning to the end of life. Any Individual when equipped with character education can excel in any part of the world.
Education should focus on ethical, social, vocational and academic aspects.
Education builds man and man in turn builds nation. A strong nation can be built only when there is a strong character education.
To put it in the words of Martin Luther King Jr., The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically, In other words, "Intelligence plus character". That is the goal of true education.
Abraham Lincoln aptly said, "Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow". The shadow is what we think of it, the tree is the real thing.
