The social milieu of a person is the immediate world for him/her. We grow up experiencing this immediate world of ours and it shapes our perspectives and thoughts from a young age. School is an integral part of this immediate world and this institution is expected to prepare us to decide what is right or wrong, to understand the values of life and become better citizens. Schools also function in this social milieu and societal practices are reflected in the school practices too. Schools do not just train individuals for employment but also serve a greater purpose of instilling democratic values, like equality, justice, and respect from a young age. I got the opportunity to teach in one such school which functions with complete awareness of the purpose of educating the children who come there.
