In today’s scenario, Education has become one of the most prominent roles in everyone’s life. Of course, everyone depends on it which is the initial stage of everyone’s journey.
“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself”. If we talk about our education we’ll definitely get back to our childhood & colleges day’s memories and the naughty things which we made during those days. So let’s come to our discussion…is our Indian Education System well structured and implemented the way we are learning?
When it comes to our schooling educational system we have to types of syllabus i.e State Syllabus & Central Syllabus. Have you ever think of it? Most probably not. But there is a lot of difference between those two. Most of the funny answers given by our elders are state syllabus is easy whereas central is hard & you need to work hard to clear the examination. These days even many schools came into the market with different names i.e E Techno schools & International School which are affiliated to universities.
But, how to differentiate a student who is studying in primary school & in an international school? I think the way teaching will be different probably showing them practically and explaining with examples & at the same time we need to think from student point also i.e how much skills a student can acquire & implement in real time.
We also live in a country where the people see education as the means of climbing the social and economic ladder. If the education system is failing – then it is certainly not due to lack of demand for a good education, or because a market for education does not exist.
The education system in India is failing because of more intrinsic reasons. There are systemic faults that do not let our demand for good education translate into a great marketplace with excellent education services.
Let’s explore something else in this one: what should change in the Indian education system?
The education has to be delivered in such a way that it improves the skills of a student & at the same time gaining complete knowledge. “Give a man a fish and you feed him one day, teach him how to catch fishes and you feed him for a lifetime.” I believe that if you teach a man a skill, you enable him for a lifetime. Knowledge is largely forgotten after completion of the exam.
Most of the schools are English Medium but hardly how many will speak in English? I think the teaching staff & class leaders will speak in English & the remaining students are comfortable in their own mother tongue. This situation is happening in every corner of India. Even parents have to motivate their children and at the same time, they need to speak in English.
The market has been changing and in most of the schools, at vacation time for each & every student one project is given. On the opening day of the school, they need to submit the project. Actually what students are doing just searching the topic from google and exact content & relevant images has to be taken the print out & copied. But nowadays the situation is same in colleges also.
Projects have to be relevant to the students based upon the market trends so that to increase the thinking ability of a student which would be remembered for a long time.
So how much we push things won’t change. Before learning anything know the purpose of it. Beautiful lines said by Albert Einstein “I never teach my pupils, I only provide the conditions which they can learn”.
