i very much agree with the points, but i've trouble understanding how it'll be taught. what about changing the proposal title to something like "Redefine education policy based on the following points"?

If we get power, we will be able to set policies on education. So the entire govt machinery will/is supposed to work to implement the policy.

It would be great if we can add a point stating how humility is more important that the skills or wealth or fame one might have acquired and the others are pointless if you're a terrible human.

Would like to know everyone's opinion regarding this.
The inspiration is from a Bible verse:

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:2
