Progressive Education society was established by Sri Shankarrao Kanitkar and his team in the year 1934. Even while India was still under the clutches of British, Sri Shankarrao Kanitkar dared to dream of an educated India, an education which would not make slaves of the people but which would s of themselves. He believed that education is power. Childhood education would link the people to what is best and lasting. He set the field for education and its spark soon illuminated the region with the glow.
Education is not just the acquisition of data. It is acquisition of power over the mind. It is the mind opener and knowledge flows through the mind. Education is getting connected to the source of knowledge. Einstein had said that education is what remains after one has forgotten everything that he learnt in school. Education is everlasting. I am happy that I’m involved in this genuine venture.
