This book presents some of the goals and objectives that make education and schooling a mission and a nation building project. The subject of the book is simultaneously about school leadership, about policy making for education and about shaping the individual through quality education. Tom Kunnunkal treats education as an ethical endeavour and emphasizes the responsibility of the teacher as well as learners towards the society they belong to, besides focusing on personal development. He presents alternate pathways for this journey while ensuring that all of them follow the core principle of contributing to national development. The book does not merely enlist textbook precepts to be followed by a school head; rather it represents embodied learning of a veteran leader who has for many decades traversed between the worlds of teaching, administration and policy making. The book is a personal narrative encompassing the world of knowledge and action, presenting ideas in a simple fashion that every teacher, school head and educational administrator should read.
