How I made Decision of UN-SCHOOLING my SON ?

I made the decision to Home-schooling / un-schooling my Son while building my team while building my Business. I visited many institutions across India to recruit young graduates and realized that there is a huge gap in the Education System. Our youths are mostly directionless in spite of spending 20+ years building careers. They do not hesitate to call themselves freshers at the end of Graduation.

What to expect Immediately after UN-SCHOOLING your Child from the Regular Schooling System ???

I made this video for other parents who are thinking of un-schooling their children from the regular schooling system. I have shared my experience in this video. Every parent and child will have different goals. You must know your WHY and HOW of Home-Schooling and the rest will fall into place by itself.

What we do at The Life Engineering Foundation?

Econstruct Design and Build Pvt Ltd launched The LIFE Engineering Foundation. This is a center for unschooling , home schooling or open learning children. We believe that CAREER is just a part of life but mostly due to our regular education system, our focus is on the career and earnings only. We need a fresh perspective to see our Life as a whole and learn the skills which are required to survive in day to day life.

WAKEUP PARENTS

“To all you parents, dragging a bawling child to the kindergarten admission, only to end up after 22 years with a wailing adult.”

Lend us your ears for a few moments:

Wait. Before you hand over your child to the system. Think. Before you sentence the child to the rat race. Ask yourself what do you want for your child. Do you want freedom for yourself and your child?

Freedom to explore the vast possibilities and true potential in life. Or, the ‘safety’ of a prison?
That is the difference between a rigid system that believes one size fits all, and an open-endedself-directed learning. Look at the Time, Money and Effort invested. Now look at the output. Is it worth it?

Look at the stress, blame and guilt you take on. Is it worth it?
After 22 years, and almost Rs 20-30 lakh invested, what have you got?
A child who cannot fit the job market, and If he does, is just able to take care of his family’s basic needs? Is it worth it?
Are you sure what he learns today will even be relevant 20 years later? Why subject her to all the unnecessary stress?

If all you need are the certificates, the options are many today. There are NIOS and IB systems that allow the child to take the exams whenever he/she is ready. Why not invest your lakhs of money in some mutual funds or shares? That is enough to provide him his daily meal 20 years later.

Anyway, that is all he ends up doing after 22 years in the system. For today, let him be free to explore the world through his curiosity and interest. Let her learn life skills that will help her every day of her life. Let him learn to question. To seek the answers. Let her learn to solve problems with solutions she designs. Let them fail and learn from failure. Let them be free. Let us join hands to facilitate self-directed education that makes every child self-reliant, self-governed and independent thinkers.

Let us free them and ourselves from stress, AND from the vicious loop that turns them into robots and then demands them to think differently.

Let us give them the choice to be what they want to be. Let us not feed the school business’ that consumes 8 hours of our child’s waking time and still shifts the blame of his/her poor performance on us!

First you can unschool your child. And then opt for home schooling or free schooling or self directed learning or open schooling.
Choices are available. Are you willing to make the change? We can help.

The options are many, the question is :  Are you ready to take the charge ?

Thanks and Regards,

The Life Engineering Foundation Team

Our Mission

“To provide educational courses aligned with the concepts of sustainability for a holistic and lifelong learning by appropriate blending of technology and traditional knowledge to shape world citizens who care for the Planet, Society and create wealth within the replenishing capacity of the Nature while fostering peace and partnership.”

Our Vision

“To make exemplary and innovative contributions towards quality, meaningful, equitable and sustainable education”

What we do?

“We provide a learning environment where each child can pick and choose his/her direction and learn at their own pace. We encourage them to think and enable them to take decisions and become independent. We equip them with skills for day to day life using various tools and methods. We work to help them take control of their lives”.

The Life Engineering Foundation is established by a group of professionals from varied backgrounds but with a common objective of working towards true education.

We believe that in order to keep up with change, one has to reimagine conventional educational paradigms and blend them with a futuristic approach.

Students should be adept with skills determined by the fast-changing technology; they should be guided, but not instructed; information should be made accessible, but not fed to them. Above all, they should be free to pursue what they are naturally inclined towards.

The 5P's For Your Child

1. Planet

“Protect our planet’s natural resources and climate for future generations.”

Planet focused education for humans as the most evolved
species of animals is to protect and guard the flow and
sustenance of life and not destroy the unique diversity of
life in the biosphere of the planet. Planet- centric education will train students to explore alternate ways to feed, clothe, shelter and transport people without disrupting the fine balance of the ecosystem. It will encourage them to innovate and build, as well as develop a sense of well-being rather than foster greed. Ecosystems will be valued for their intrinsic value rather than narrow ones defined by commercial requirements.

2. People

“End poverty and hunger in all forms and ensure dignity and equality.”

People-centric education will encourage students to work towards a class-free and just society where service to fellow beings and natural ecosystem is valued and not the positions of power.

3. Prosperity

“Ensure for everyone prosperous and fulfilling lives in harmony with nature.”

Prosperity-centric education is one that creates food, sustenance, beauty, joy, design efficiency, without any net waste. Instead of focussing on infinite production, consumption, dehumanization, exploitation of human/animal lives , excess and waste creation for economic profits, true education redefines prosperity as the employment of human intellect in harmonized cohabitations of diverse communities and manufacturing and managing commodities to leave zero-waste footprint in nature.

4. Peace

Foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies.”

Peace-centric education is one which treats every individual with respect and recognises the value of peace for a sustainable lifestyle. The peace is not only between nations and peoples, but also between humans and other species.

5. Partnership

‘A global partnership based on the spirit of a global strengthened solidarity’

Partnership-centric education works to train students in collaboration in place of competition. Such partnerships can be between people, organisation and nations. It includes governments, private organisations, academia and civil society working in tandem.

3 ways education happens

The right combination of Formal, Non-formal and Informal education to suit each child and family is often the best system.

That is where “The Life Engineering Academy” can guide you.

Formal: Schools, Coaching Institutes

The Curriculum for formal schools are mostly decided by the various government institutions for different levels. The Central Government and State Governments decide these and notify them. There is not much choice available for the subjects as well as for the examinations.

Non-formal : At Home or Community as per the need

In India, for Non-formal education, the National Institute for Open Learning (NIOS) decides the Curriculum for each level. However, there is a choice available, both for the subjects and timing of the examinations.

Informal : What the child learns from the parents, relatives or the world around

Informal system has no fixed curriculum design. It depends on the socio-cultural background of the families and the communities.

Don't let your life choices
be controlled by others

For curious minds we teach trade skills necessary to understand working and fixing things in carpentry, plumbing, automobile, software and hardware.

Children, take over the reins...

….of your lives

Congrats! You are born into the most intelligent species on planet earth. How about learning to think and act like one?

As you know we have not only intelligence but the awareness that animals lack. Using these gifts, we can not only have a good life for ourselves, but also help other humans and creatures. Isn’t that awesome? To be a steward on the planet ship. You are born in an age where learning is much easy, given the technology around you. You can access any information you want. It is a quicker process with everything available on a click unlike in the past where books had to be hunted down physically. Asking teachers for book titles, then enquiring among many on where it may be available, again going back to the teacher for further guidance, can you imagine the time it all took?

Today, thanks to the world wide web, data is available easily and you can also access various interpretations of the same on the click of a button or a brief voice query to Alexa! It is all available at all times and any place, unless you live in Timbuktu or Pandora. But like anything, technology can also be used for right and wrong reasons. Distractions are plenty on the net. It is up to you to stay aligned with your area of focus.

But before you get there, it is important to identify yourself. Not through the lens of the world, but by looking within. Who are you, what are your dreams, your values, your desires and your passion. What is it that interests you? What is your unique potential? Or, in other words, what comes easily for you, what do you do best? Is it communication? Organizing? Problem solving? Analysis? Critical thinking? Once you identify this, you will need to spend some time picking up the required skills. Work towards realizing your dreams. Do not get lost in the world’s to-do list that places you in a uniform assembly line. You will end up with no excitement in life, no appreciation, nil joy.

When using modern technology, beware that you do not close doors on what is old and traditional. For instance, our Indian culture and heritage should be the foundation on which you build your life’s learning. Besides the glorious past where our sage thinkers had spelt out some of the most complex truths of the universe, we have the legacy of our sacred Vedas and Upanishads that show the path to enlightened living. To take a small example, when we join hands in a Namaste, we are acknowledging one of the greatest truths. The word and the gesture implies a bowing to the other person, seeing their divinity and recognizing it as a part of our divinity and the Universe. Beautiful, isn’t it?

Our Santana Dharma indeed has its foundation in scientific spirituality, and in every achara or custom/ritual prescribed, you can find a scientific truth. The constant refrain in our literature is never to believe anything blindly but to go by experiential truth. Our smritis in fact point to how any knowledge is the sum total of what is learned from the teacher, from one’s own self inquiry, from discussions with others and finally, by practicing it to see what changes need to be made to it.

The Indian history texts often gloss over the glorious past of the country and we only read about the various defeats at the hands of the Mughals and British. There was so much more to our past and you can read about it, though not in detail, in some books and online. Check this:
While the civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt have long been recognized for their celebrated contributions to civilization, India has often been overlooked, especially in the West, though its history and culture is just as rich. The Indus Valley Civilization (c. 7000-c. 600 BCE) was among the greatest of the ancient world, covering more territory than either Egypt or Mesopotamia and producing an equally vibrant and progressive culture. Be proud of our ancient culture, but also be open to the new. A blend of both can be the best of both worlds at your service.

Dear Children, do not waste precious time that you can use to learn simple tasks and become independent quickly. Have you tried changing the bulb at home instead of calling on dad for that? Or cleaning up, after a sleepover with friends? It is no different from the joy of learning to ride the bike. Becoming independent makes you confident. From plugging a leaky tap to teaching young ones how to play the flute, you can soon start earning your first rupee.

But, let not money define all your actions. Service to the needy and disadvantaged can give you immeasurable joy. To place a smile on the face of an old woman abandoned at the old age home, can have no equivalent in currency. The elders advice us to give away freely what we are abundant in. You children have carefree hearts full of playful spontaneity. Share it. It is a gift.

Finally, you have the golden opportunity to serve the planet. You can do it from your homes and schools. A bulb on during the day, a tap left open, plastic covers discarded carelessly, food that goes waste, etc. are things you can control without needing permissions or grants. We are living on a limited planet. There is no place for unlimited plunder of its limited resources. We need to conserve water, food and energy if we want to save some for the generations ahead. Start thinking creatively on ways to recycle, reuse and reduce resources.
We need to take along all other species if we are to maintain ecological balance. Taking away the forests for our mines, roads and resorts, how can we complain when the wildlife come into our cities looking for food and water? Flying kites with manja (glass pieces) causes so many birds to be injured. For a mere thrill of cutting a competitor’s kite, is it worth harming the birds? Practice kindness. Violence only begets violence. Love and non violence nourish the divine soul within all of us.
Look within. Know yourself. Follow your natural curiosity. Explore and learn. According to experts, all you need is one hour of study in your chosen field and you can master the subject in three years. There is a time to play, to laze, to sleep and a time to study. Learning is happening in all these times.
If you are an explorer at heart, join us. We at LEF can guide you in your journey. Chat with bots, or learn how to face a bouncer in the cricket field. Try for yourself how to make a crispy pizza or what section of the IPC applies to the hit and run case. If CGI in Avtaar 2 mesmerized you, why not shake a fin yourself? Perhaps, you would like to lend a shoulder for staff in your dad’s firm and give some counseling? The sky and the ocean are no limits to what you can learn and achieve.

The options are many, the question is : Are you ready to take the charge ?

Thanks and Regards,
