These days I hear a lot of people saying how their children are teaching them to use the internet or apps. Don’t you hear from some parents that their pre-schooler knows how to operate YouTube and put on Peppa the Pig? Kids are becoming smarter and evolution is going to do what it has to! Thus, the kids need to get nurtured in an environment that encourages their intelligence and helps them find their place in this overly competitive world. More the development more is the competition. So, the growing competition has led to more choices, and I understand that you are confused about which board to choose for your child. There’s one everybody is talking about – the IB Board. The famous one with a lot of bling.
Let’s get to the nitty-gritty of this education programme:
The IB program was launched in the year 1968 with a mission to develop an all-inclusive program that promotes intercultural bonding and encourages lifelong learning among the students.
According to ibo.org the mission statement of this program emphasizes on developing knowledgeable and critical thinkers to create a better and peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. There are 175 IB schools in India offering this curriculum along with the other educational boards.
According to ibo.org, the following are the programmes that come under the IB board divided according to the age along with their salient features:
