The Army believes in catching it recruits young. Pray, what better place there could be than a secondary school to influence minds at an impressionable age.
Leaders are Not born but made. It is training of young minds, not forgetting body and soul, that makes a good leader.
Likewise, making Patriots out of greenhorns is a job for dedicated teachers. Recall Acharya Chanakya who made Chandragupt a King from a cowherd. Chandragupt, under the guidance of Acharya Chanakya, defeated the Greek General Seleucus Nikator in a major battle beyong Afghanistan and brought laurels to his country. As a reward, Chandragupt was offered the hand of Seleucus’s daughter in marriage and he gladly accepted the Greek beauty as his wife and Queen of Magadh.
