Sri Sathya Sai Baba has said true education is like a bird with two wings. One wing is traditional school subjects for making one’s way in the world. The other wing fosters the emergence of human values in thought, word, and deed, which is the mark of good character. When the human values of truth, right conduct, peace, love and nonviolence are integrated with the acquisition of traditional subject matter skills, the student is on the path to true happiness in life.
People ask how to integrate human values with traditional school subjects? First the teacher makes a plan, a lesson plan, in a traditional school subject area for the age of students in his or her class and adds activities or discussion items about the human values related to that particular subject. The teacher then puts the plan in action with his or her students in class.
Sathya Sai Schools around the world have been drawing out the human values inherent in students while teaching traditional subject matter for many years. This Sathya Sai Schools Lesson Plans Hub is a platform for Sathya Sai Schools to share integrated lesson plans with
- Other Sathya Sai Schools
- Other interested schools
- Sathya Sai School supporters and well-wishers
The Sathya Sai Schools Lesson Plans Hub is a project of the SSSIO Education Committee. The EC invites Principals of Sathya Sai Schools and Directors of Institutes of Sathya Sai Education (ISSE) to share examples of lesson plans that integrate human values with traditional school subjects at different grade levels. Please contact the Education Committee at email@example.com if you would like to display lesson plans on the Sathya Sai Schools Lesson Plans Hub.
Lesson plans on the Hub are in PDF format and may need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read them.

The end of Wisdom is freedom.
The end of culture is perfection.
The end of knowledge is love.
The end of education is character.
