A school or college is a temple where students learn subjects, make friends, gain knowledge, share information and also showcase their talent be it academics or extracurricular activities. An institution is a combination of students, teaching and non-teaching staff. A good institution only produces best students when it has smooth flow within its hierarchy.

For an instance, management will be instructing teachers how things are to be done, whereas teachers will be the one who actually do it. In our one-on-one counselling sessions, we shall work on resolving those above-mentioned problems in order for the smooth conduct of the institution.

- Classroom management is an art and it should be taught to teachers or recruit a person who has the potential and it can also be done by reducing the number of students in the classroom.
