Chairman Desk - IIE Pune

In a democratic, but developing country like India, the goal of education should be “Intelligence plus Character”. This is possible only through “True Education” which provides for the fullest possible development of each learner for living creatively, morally and productively.

 Integrating these ideas in the motto as —Revolution in the life of learner and a revolution in education has always to go together.  To achieve this, education has to be totally socialized and humanized.

Keeping this constructive ideas at the back of mind —The INDIAN INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION, (IIE), Pune, was founded by the legendary educationist and lover of humanity, Padma Bhushan J.P. Naik in 1948. Later on, the mission of the I.I.E. was taken ahead by his life-partner Dr. Chitra Naik with the same set of humanist principles i.e. “Education for all” and “Health for all”.

 Presently the Indian Institute of Education is working on possibility of imparting Positive Education through non-formal mode. Because it is being observed that Natural and Incidental mode of education i.e. informal education results in modification of behavior/ attitude of the learner. Especially unethical social events may cause in developing negative attitudes amongst the youth, which some time result in mental health problems.

Positive Education can be imparted through non-formal mode. The use of positive Psychology within education is known as Positive Education. Positive Education is effective not only for academic success but strengthening inner drive for meaningful life and well being of community by reducing mental health problems.
