The remaining 40% of teachers did agree that competition has become part of everyday life yet they presented dissimilar views regarding the worth of competition. It was argued that competition is useless and damaging and it leads to ‘acidic attitudes’ between competing students. This argument goes in line with Kohn’s (1987) statement that competition breeds an atmosphere of hostility. One teacher claimed that if we sit back and reflect, competition can be quite ‘arbitrary’. She was insinuating that if we try to think a lot broader, we might reflect on the issue of what is a good life. It is affirmed by the teacher that the goodness of people’s lives should not be measured by their ranks or titles. It was strongly argued that instead of encouraging competition, there is the need for teachers to train students to understand the blessings in their lives and understand how profound those blessings are so that they do not just tie themselves to winning or to more status and prestige. As rightly pointed out by a teacher, “There is more to life than just being the ‘first’ or the ‘best’ always and we should not let just a title drive the whole identity formation process”. Here, Gandhi’s rejection of competition and his emphasis on other aspects of life like cooperation, mutual love and service to others appear very relevant.
