A new species, completely transformed is about to appear on the scene. A new man, the “vertical man” is the man that has broken the psychological vortex and the old ways of thinking that have imprisoned the old humanity. The new man has a complete psychology, free from conflicts and that does not see only through opposites but sees reality made up of different layers, the levels of being. The central role that education will have in the new era of man must be deepened and this is vital for the survival and evolution of our civilization. New schools and universities that are able to express a system of vital ideas in order to prepare this new species, a governing class free from conflicts, businessmen and managers capable to redefine the central concepts surrounding ethics, the economy and spirituality, a generation of leaders that are able to harmonize the seemingly apparent antagonisms of all time: economics and ethics, action and contemplation, financial power and love. Special schools and new universities are needed. Their first task is to teach the revolution of being and at the centre of their attention and at the top of their every priority there must be the individual. The seed lies in the being of the individual. We have to start from within. It is a process inside-out just like when healing a wound. Every other revolution in history has failed. True transformation, the solution to the millenary problems of man can be only be the product of a mental revolution. We have to think differently. Who commits a crime or is poor has a distorted vision of the world. He thinks that the external world can make him rich and happy but the truth is that the world and all its events is nothing but the effect, the consequence, the shadow of being. The world is the projection of our way of thinking and the economy is the reflection of our values and our ideas. He who does not give attention to his being will not be able to prosper but is destined to lose his possessions, all that he has and also what he merely ‘believes’ to have. Man is made up of layers. He can produce falsity and pain just as he can produce truth, beauty and goodness. We must teach how to bring forth his own uniqueness which the world as a consequence will reflect. Only the individual can change society. The revolution is purely individual therefore it is the individual that must understand, harmonize and balance his being. ESE is dedicated to the individual, to his intellectual and humanitarian preparation, which it puts at the centre of every activity. ESE teaches the Individual Revolution and is dedicated to the preparation of men that have omitted from their being egoism, conflict, poverty, prejudice and even the idea that death is unavoidable. It is for these reasons that they will be able to attract and create wealth. Man is ready - intelligence and love lie already within. It is visible in every student. The School does not have to add anything, but to bring to light their originality, and the beauty of their uniqueness. For this reason there is no need for external teachings. The root of ‘educate’ is ‘to take out’: Ex-duco. This has to be the main principle for a School of liberty, of self-knowledge… a School of integrity. The school of the future has to eliminate more than to add on. To eliminate old structures, rusted concepts, obsolete ideas, to abandon preconceived notions, false sentiments, imaginary fears and identification, to destroy negative emotions, destructive thoughts and the certainty of death that has been rooted in every man since childhood.
Door Step School launched the "Every Child Counts"- Citizens' Campaign in 2011 in Pune, India. This program is aligned with the UN Millennium development Goal of "Universal elementary education for all by 2015".
The Key goal of the Program is to reach and enrol all children in the age group of 6-7 into mainstream schools. Specific focus is on reaching the "highly marginalized" children living on construction sites, roadside dwellings, unauthorized slums who are migrant and therefore often deprived of their Right to Education. According to a recent UNICEF report an estimated 16 million children in India migrate annually, resulting in non-enrollment and disruption of schooling.

Our Current Experts on Wisdom Have Published Books and Essays Trying to Explain Wisdom and Yet Wisdom Remains as Fuzzy as Ever!
Wisdom is crystal clear in one sentence from religion, philosophy, government and science respectively. -- a) ’Wisdom is an innate property of the pious/good self; where ignorance is the innate property of the evil self' from the Scriptures. b) 'Wisdom creates good people and ignorance creates bad people', from philosophy. c) 'Wisdom creates responsible citizens and ignorance creates criminals', from governments. d) 'Wisdom is a product of an emotionally healthy brain and ignorance is a product of an emotionally challenged brain', from science.
Education is Like a Building; Where it Takes the First Five Years of Upbringing to Build the Education Foundation
In the vast majority an emotionally sick education foundation is built up by unqualified and even misqualified parents. On this faulty foundation, qualified and trained teachers build the rest of the education building. Decades of trying to build a healthy education structure does not take away the consequences of the faulty foundation. In fact all future life is dictated by the innitial emotional foundation.
