Rabindranath people within it, was reflected through

Rabindranath Tagore was a poet, a philosopher, a novelist,
an educationist, singer and story writer. He is known for his role as a poet, which
he started at the age of 14 and through this; his elusive artistic sense, his
acumen, his broad experience of life and in-depth understanding of the world
and the people within it, was reflected through his stories. The unparalleled opulence
of his language and writing manner soon showcased him as the greatest poet and
writer, in Bangladesh, and also the whole of India. By putting together his
imbibing ability to learn easily from others, with studying the theories of
other educationists, it helped him to develop his own views on the matter of
education. His notable pieces are “Geetanjali”, and the National Anthem of Bangladesh:
“Amar Shonar Bangla” and the National Anthem of India: “Jana Gana Mana”.

The basic principle of Tagore’s Educational Philosophy is
Moral and Spiritual Development. Education should strive for a number of moral
qualities such as tolerance, self-discipline and inner freedom. To achieve
this, the teaching methodology used should be one whereby the teacher/educator
should use ‘teaching by walking’; Tagore believes that when a child is confined
in a room their minds will not be as active in comparison to when they are
walking around and experiencing ideas first-hand. The qualities and work ethic
of a teacher, he believed, was to focus less on book learning and engage more
in conductive environments to undertake knowledge in constructive activities.
According to Tagore, “God reveals himself through nature more effectively than
through man made institutions.  Hence,
the education of the child should be under natural surroundings so that he
develops love for all things around him.”
According to Tagore, “That education is highest which not only imparts
information and knowledge to us, but also promotes love and follow feeling
between us and the living beings of the world.”
