The National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT) has taken an innovative step. It will spread the message of peace among students by sensitising the teaching community towards this.

A group of 35 teachers from across the country are being taught conflict resolution, suppression of aggression and coping with stress. The six-week training programme began in the Capital on Tuesday.

"The plan aims to arm teachers with skills to promote harmony among students for avoiding conflict with law," NCERT Director Krishna Kumar said. NCERT officials said teachers are the role models for students and can help them handle situations in a non-violent way.

"Arrogance and aggression, the two vices, can be controlled by value-based education," the NCERT officials said.
