Abstract


The paper depicts selective school practices that provides ample opportunity to value and recognize the cultural background of each student and to internalize the learning outcomes in a multi cultural perspective. The practices are extracted from the ongoing schools practices of Odisha, Rajasthan and Jharkhand. Common School practices like functioning of School Cabinet, Child Reporter, School as mini mecum of indigenous culture, painting work, openness in school uniform and library activities are some of  the practices  to generate a sense of acceptance and respectfulness to own cultuture as well as others; and  to understand the learning outputs in multi-cultural perspective. The paper also highlights “SRUJAN” an initiative of SSA, Odisha for identification and nurturing the talent of school children  towards indigenous culture. It is a statewide program to generate a sense of equity, dignity and respectfulness towards other cultures among the students at the elementary level.
