The fact that our education system has a great flaw in it is elusive as it is not making the students really interested to learn new things.

According to me an education system should create an uncontrollable thirst for curiosity in learning things which may not even be present in the curriculum of students. One major subject is thrown out by us, that is philosophy, if you read biographies of various personalities you will come to a conclusion that everyone had a philosophy about their life. But now we are attaching our minds to people, objects rather than great ideas.

Marking scheme should be abolished. Report cards should report about the areas in which a student excels and the areas in which he need to improve, for this almost every possible area, for example gardening, astronomy, should be taken into account.

I think our education system must be improved, it is purely theoretical and scarcely practical. Our education system is producing mugger machines rather than intellectuals and it is the main reason why we are unemployed.

India has world's largest youth power but yet it is considered underdeveloped country because of our education system only. So it is a prime requirement to improve our education system.

Lack of finance, lack of positive thinking, lack of healthy self image are the missing elements of the contemporary Teacher Educators. Mere speaking will not bring any reforms in the educational system. All are fearing about the consequences, practical issues, own benefits, sudden reactions of the reforms. Gradually reforms are going on definitely it will reflect in our educational system also. Please get ready for transformation.

I think our educational system must change. The way of teaching also need a change. The burden of the child increases in school. The capability of thinking decreases. They became a machine to produce output. The output may wary on the training they gets. If we provide such an education which help them to face all the obstacles, that will be better for their future than to make them as a material.

In India we lay more stress on scores than knowledge parents compare their child with "Sharma ji ka ladka " if he fails gets scolding and abuse of society. Some of the faults are,

1. Indian schools want their students to learn and mug up everything till their 10th standard. They never understands the capacity of a child.

2. Only theoretical, no practical.

3. Lack of good teachers. Teachers have started hating their jobs.

4. No personality development.

5. Lack of understanding the passion by parents.

6. Mental attitude if a person takes up commerce as his higher secondary education stream. Many people having science stream and parents looks at that person like if he is a very low grade, a failure or a dumb student.

7. Competitive exams if anybody wants to study computer programming from IIT then, he has to give 2 exams JEE (mains & advance) which consists of Physical, Chemistry maths that too be off high level than 10th, +2 in JEE (Advanced) which has no relation to a computer programmer.

8. Reservations.

Hello all.

I am living in Netherlands for 2 years now and one thing which I noticed here in Europe is that their education system right from start till end is very carefully developed by government.

The government in these countries don't just focus on producing great mathematicians, scientists, engineers etc. But more importantly good human beings who know how to live by being truthful, reliable, helping people in need, able to take decision about their life independently & without any fear and many other vital things required for a good life in particular & society in general. If I compare education system in my country (India) then it looks very very bad because,

1) Because it has become totally commercial.

2) Teachers don't love their job but only the salary at month end.

3) Most of the time teachers don't know how to teach their subjects.

4) More importance is given to teach in English which is completely wrong.

5) English can be taught as a language, I have no problem with it but other subjects should be taught in mother tongue as anyone will understand better in the language which he speaks from birth.

But we Indians are big copy cats and we think that the person who speaks English is better in some way or other which is completely absurd I have many things to say but this time is not just to say but also do something very soon I will start a school first for small children. And I will try to change the way of education. Please note this is the only problem in India. All other issues will go once this is sorted.

According to me our Indian education system has to be reformed. First of all the curriculum what we are following has to be changed. According to me the topics now presented in the books can be taught by any person sitting under a tree. But teaching the things other than the books is education. So the topics in the books and the mode oof teaching should be changed.

We can't completely blame the schools for this loss. Patents are also responsible or this. Nowadays parents are business with their lives. They don't have enough time to take care of their kids. Apart from this now schools are giving so many project works to children to do at home. But no use instead of children parents are doing that or else they are leaving the children like that without doing the work.

Even there is no follow up by teacher also. Changed curriculum had been became a burden to students rather than enjoying the syllabus. Motivational stories should be an important subject in the curriculum to teach them morals and ethics to children.

Personality development should also be an important subject this helps the children to overcome in the society In the present world I have so many ideas to discuss. But I feel this is the time to close the cap of my pen.

Hello,

1) I think education is not only about learning and gaining knowledge. It is also about moral values and ethics that very individual should know.

2) Education is not something that helps to get some job, it should also give some mental support to students. Most of the students attempt suicides because they don't get good marks or good rank or job, is this what our education system teaching, to commit suicide if you don't succeed in life?

3) Now-a-days teachers are least bothered about students they just work for their monthly salaries. Teachers play major part in shaping students behaviour and their future, unfortunately teachers lack in their values.

4) As-usual, there are no proper labs no practical working in most of the school's and colleges.

5) Reservation is another important criteria in our education system which fails to get capable students into their dream universities.

If we dig deep, we find that the most of the reforms are needed at school level which is responsible for development of learning abilities, shaping of character and the most important, the thinking capacity of the children. Our school education including plus two level has utterly failed in developing the children and making them capable to take on the university level education. As a result, our graduates, almost 90% of them, are found to be unemployable and irresponsible citizens.

The employers however have to pick from the available stuff and train them, trying to make them fit for the job. However these graduates, post graduates and PHD's cannot be perfectly moulded since they are past the age of moulding. The primary qualities like sincerity, discipline, hardworking capabilities, applying their minds and brains to problem solving are lacking, in general, among our youths. How can a country develop when the country's youth possess the robotic brains sans thinking minds?

Perhaps this is the reason that we have too much of inefficiency and corruption in our bureaucracy. Only 5% may be exceptions to these generalizations and our leaders and educationists only boast of these 5% exceptions and derive satisfaction of being a country of educated youths.

Even though there are many strengths in the education system in India there are also many problems. One of the major problems is language. The Three Language Formula is good because in this modern world knowing different languages is important, especially English. But I do not agree with the idea of the English Medium School (or the Hindi Medium School). We should learn English and Hindi as languages but study all our other subjects in our mother tongues.

The reason for this is to enable the students to understand what they are studying more easily. Also to allow teachers to explain subjects more clearly as they will be able to express themselves better in their mother tongues as well. If there is no communication problem more learning will take place. Too much is learned by memorizing without actually gaining deep knowledge and understanding.

Naturally the great majority of Indians understand and express ideas better in their mother tongues. Actually not only Indians. International studies have been conducted that prove that people in general learn better in their mother tongues. UNESCO is one example of an organisation that has conducted studies to prove this. Studies in India have also come to this conclusion. Actually it is every Indian citizen's right to be educated in their mother tongue according to the Indian Constitution.

There are many more problems than just this language issue. For example teachers need to be trained better and generally need to have more incentives to actually teach better and be more dedicated to their job in the school. A good teacher should be a good communicator (means talking and listening) of ideas and inspire their students to achieve the best they can. This is applicable in any language depending on the part of India. Students should have a more active role meaning they should actually be allowed to speak, ask questions and discuss ideas in lessons.

They should not be punished or discouraged from using their mother tongue to express themselves as it is most natural to them. Also the condition and resources of many schools need to improve, as well as the number of students per class being reduced. Education should not be like a business, but a service for the people. But if the service being provided is not good enough naturally people will look for other options. We are talking about the future of our children.

Hello,

Yes our education system has to be changed, we study more theoretical and less practically. But practical knowledge is more needed.

And there should be subjects on communication skills and personality development so that we can develop and communicate in a better manner.

Our present education system puts more pressure on students, rather then encouraging them to do better.

The biggest drawback in our education system is quality of teachers right from primary education to university level. The teachers in government run school take least of interest in either updating themselves or teaching properly to young minds. At university level, freshers are recruited and majority of them are unaware of requirement of market/industry. Private players in education field barring few are just shops to sell degrees with today's education system it is practically possible to acquire a PHD degree through private university route without any knowledge.

We have exploited each and every route either through private or government system to worst barring a few institutions for paltry gain of individuals. I think we need to change it. A two year compulsory career in education for those who have studied in premier institutions and aided by Government must be made mandatory to improve relevance of engineering and management education in country. If we want our country to prosper, a moral responsibility has to be taken by all of us concerned to make education system better.

Hi friends.

According to me education.

Present education system focuses more on scores rather than knowledge.

It's having 90% theoretical subjects. Even remaining 10% practical subjects are of limited experiments and of expected output. There is no scope for students to do experiments on their own. Some colleges are not conducting practicals. Instead, they are giving full marks and allotting that time to mug up theoretical subjects. In the end, students are coming out of schools and colleges only having bookish knowledge in the mind as the method of learning doesn't connect to reality.

There is so much meaningless pressure on students because of the too much competitive spirit in between private institutions. Children in school are not being guided well about careers. They hardly know about what the options available in career except doctors and engineers. Because of that they are taking courses of their parent's choice (mostly) after coming out of schools. They even don't know what career options available with that course.

Many schools are not concentrating on extra curricular activities. This may lead to the false assumption in children that only education is important in life. Some teachers are giving marks based on the no.of papers rather than the content. Thereby students will try to fill papers instead of focusing on to write the actual answer.

There are some cases that students are giving up their lives as they are unable to cope up with too much pressure laid on them by private schools and colleges.

Yes friends, we need a peaceful social environment that cannot be imagined without a perfect education system. To go with proper education, we need to be serious from the pre-primary level of a child.

We do need reformation in syllabus. Syllabus should be included with much more career related or vocational subjects that a student can dream his occupation by his own interest, and it can prevent unemployment.

In syllabus there should be more option for 10th passed and 12th passed students to build up there career using our surrounding Nature, such as gardening flower, vegetable garden, fisheries etc.

To make a reformed education system we will have to be serious in employing TEACHERS. Because unless a perfect teacher we cannot get a perfect student.

Hi all.

Education system in India needs up gradation. The world is changing fastly. New technologies are arriving so why old syllabus is being taught in schools and colleges. Syllabus needs to be updated. My second point is we should be taught more practically rather than just being theoretical.

When a person completes his graduation he is not at all employable. This education system is creating more unemployable. He lacks the skills an there is huge difference between what he was taught in college and what is required in the market. So this gap needs to be filled.

The real meaning of education is also being aware of duties, character, how to behave, respecting others along with protecting your self-esteem. In America and Europe, it's still the foundation meaning of education. So a normal kid does not has a habit of spitting anywhere in America. A British traffic police cop does not takes bribe for leaving a car driver for his illegal ride.

But in India we are just focused to teach students what or why or how something happens anyway. We never focuses the way we're teaching them, that in which perspective kids are getting the things or if asked to explain, in which manner kids will explain it to others. A child follows their parents instincts. So, we should be aware of which good or bad things we are teaching them without our knowledge, when explaining a scientific phenomenon or a historical scenario to the students.

Our higher education system has more potential threats inside it. Here your higher education degree does not has any relation with your ability to do what you are supposed to do after completing your education. It has became just a bundle of papers.

In the other scene, for appearing in so many of the competition based entrance tests you should have a minimum qualification. It questions both the role of entrance exams and also validity of your ability, education on which you have spent more than 15 years of your life.

So, there should be a single valid exam for a particular job, it should not have foundation of a degree as your minimum qualification. The minimum qualification degree should have an alternative to get the job. Before that we have to improve the quality of higher education.

Hello friends,

Talking of education system in India, we really have some serious steps to follow and initiate. Indian education system is highly theoretical and mere practical. The benefit we acquire of being highly theoretical is our imagination power keeps on improving as we pretend to think a lot. But at the same time we lack the infrastructure to innovate. Having a better practical environment right from the school and colleges can really help a person to think out of the box.

Our education system has been very conservative right from its start in school and college we were asked not to touch the practical instruments as they feared that we could damage them. They used to threaten us with the cost we will have to pay which would be not I thousands but in lakhs.

After independence, we gradually improve our education system. Now we have IIT, IIM, low schools good universities. Now students routinely score 90% marks. Actually in India education system is concerned about to rising passing percentage and the student and their parents is only concerned about good grades. Higher percentage. They studied only to score marks and sometimes to crack the exams like IIT JEE, AIIMS CLAT. So basically Indian education system every year create a folk of clerks, civil servants, banker in short system produce robotic employee.

Our education system is theoretical not practical. We taught for memorizing things, checking mistakes, proving right or wrong. If we compare our system to foreign education we found they develop enough their student for innovation, thinking, they have courage to take risks. Every single needed to ship, high speed train, they innovate they made.

Here are some changes which I want in our present education system >> firstly focus on skill based education, we should reward creativity, original thinking, research, innovation. We should remember, memorizing things is not learning.

>> Get smarter people to teach. In India a person become a teacher when he has no other hope. It is high time to encourage a breed of superstar teachers. So government introduce some lucrative salary packages, incentives for teachers also like doctor and engineers. And at the same time introduce a system where a teachers like is more responsible about there performances like private employees if their performance is not good they will be fired. So we government will make sure a teacher never say to to his students if you don't study it is entire your loss- I will get my salary at the end of the month anyway.

>> Re-define the purpose of education system. The fact is we may have the most number of engineer graduate in the world, but we not have much technological innovation. So system should to create, entrepreneurs, artists scientist, thinker, writer not the robotic employee.

>> Take mediocrity out of the system. Our education system today encourages mediocrity in students, in teachers, throughout the system. It is easy to survive as a mediocre student, or a mediocre tea. No one shut down the mediocre school and colleges. Hard work is always difficult. A path of excellence fraught with difficulties. So if we want excellence, mediocrity can not be tolerated.

>> One size does not fit to all so please focused on personalize education. It is very much possible a kid who is not good in academics have potential to become a good sports man.

>> Invest in technological infrastructure that will make access to knowledge easier than ever. Instead of focusing on outdated models of brick and mortar colleges and universities.

>>There is an urgent need for effective regulation of Indian education sector so that there is infusion of sufficient capital and those who provide or create extraordinary educational products or services are adequately rewarded.

In India education means a lot of knowledge in short interval and after than a routine job. What are we getting in return?

No problem of country is solved since independence : Management of water resources, management of crops distributions, unemployed people with degrees and good marks.

The main difference between Indian education system and foreign education system is the innovation (creativity). They develop enough their student for innovative thinking, and the result is research, innovative companies and their products. We Indian are taught for memorizing things, checking mistakes, proving right or wrong, getting good scores, and if any problems.

Comes, search their solution in the book written by them. We are good as employees employed and instructed by them. We are not enough grown to build our own innovative systems. There are all knowledge in the book and we study them very well, get good scores, but from a single needle to ships and high speed trains, they innovate they made.

We know how motor works, how compressor works, we study we scored good marks, but they build and we buy. This is not laziness. This is training of mind in two different direction, one leads to creativity and one leads to become just a robotic employee. One don't have so much fear of doing mistake because they know that after doing 10000 mistakes only they can innovate a bulb.

Another One leads to a critical road of being right or wrong, presenting right or wrong. One leads to give enough thinking power to their weak students, another one leads to teach a lot of concepts/theories to their students about what is right or wrong.

We should stop over-expectation from child since beginning, instead of putting a lot of knowledge at once, creativity with limited knowledge should be encouraged for better future of our country. Future India needs people with problem solving skills, people with new ideas, people with innovation and creativity.

As you sow so shall you reap. " This is very much true for our education system and current situations of our country".

Hello everyone.

Before we talk about reforming education system in India, we should have to reform the mentality of parents who want to see their child securing nothing less than the top slot. Also, we always talk about the reformation required in education system but what about the poor infrastructure and very poor quality of faculties that we currently have.

In my opinion the only drawback in our education system is that it fails to recognize talent at early stage. For ex: if someone is found good in some kind of sports that sport should be made his main subject along with basic course of other subject.

Usually what happens is these talented people are identified at the age of 14 or 15, selected for national team given a training of 5 years and are asked to win gold at Olympics for our country BT what we forget is that their competitors have already gone through a training of 12 to 14 years as their talent is identified at a early age of 6-7 years.

Except the above mentioned point I don't think there is any need to change education system as this education is the one which has contributed more than 50% engineer for Americas silicon valley and around 20% scientist for NASA.

EDUCATION.

I think we have mistaken this word, which is now one factor responsible for growth of an individual and the country too. Why even after having such a large population is India lagging behind in the education line? Even after having such bright student why are they not able to cope up with the other students of different countries? the only answer to this is that our curriculum. It has become so vast that its not at all making the child smarter moreover its making them confused and be ordinary and not show their talent. Students day by day are losing their interests in learning. The government is very much responsible for it.

One country which has ten different board pattern is behind the countries which have only one board. The government school which lack the money. Child labor and most of all the way of teaching, we can make our education system by changing the way we teach. Knowledge should not be only about books but it should be about the world and self understanding. Making the understanding a concept a bit more exciting can gain the interest of a child to learn. They should feel that I want to learn something today. Not to get bored of it. This is my opinion.

According to me today's education system is not much good and neither bad, I can say. Its actually because today many concept schools have come into existence were well qualified teachers are appointed to impart knowledge to students, as well as many schools now a days utilizing the facility of e-learning which is quite beneficial to students due to the modules presented to them which makes learning more interested for them.

But many a times we can also observe the problem of having unqualified or maybe such teachers who are not able to communicate well with students. Due to this students are unable to learn and find going to school as very uninteresting thing. Therefore students bunk classes and create problems for their parents.

Hello,

Of-course our education system needs serious reforming. Though we have a rigorous school and college curriculum, our students still lag behind, both in terms of skill and knowledge, when compared to other countries. None of our premier institutes such as IITs etc, on which government spends a huge amount of money, stand at a respectable position in global rankings.

It is a clear indication that something is definitely wrong with the present system. Recently India has been declared to have the largest youth force in the world but we are unable to cash up on it because of the lack of skilled manpower. It is about time that government realizes the flaws in the system and rectifies them quickly so that we can to take full advantage of the situation.

For example, most of the schools/colleges lack proper teaching staff. The reasons stated for this vary from low salaries to lack of proper facilities and infrastructure which has diverted the youth away from taking this profession. Government can work towards removing this stigma by taking appropriate steps.

Also responsible, as many of other people have stated, is the whole system of merit, based solely on marks, which has put 'gaining practical knowledge' in the back seat. The list is endless!

To sum it all up, all these problems and many more have seriously undermined our vast and hardworking population that could have done much better if they had been led on a better path. It is now time for some retrospection and bring on the long awaited change.

What matters the most for our coming generation is EDUCATION and what if they are not getting it the right way?

In my opinion, I think the government has vast opportunities to reform the Indian education. Children have been just confined to bookish terms. Books are just the parameter to mark their credibility. They are zero in terms of personality development and practical knowledge.

Certain extra curricular classes should be made necessity for every child. However, govt. Has brought CCE pattern for schools. But at present the govt. Is planning to wrap up this pattern as they considered it a total failure.

Are they doing some experiments on our future generations? In reality, they are playing politics. With every new govt a new education system comes up throwing the previous one into the dustbin. Something needs to be done before its too late.

Hello I Am Shivam,

These are my Views About the Education System.

1. Our System is totally based on marks, Everything Is done For marks And not To Get a Experience Or To Satisfy Our Minds. It Makes Everyone limited To Marks And No one Thinks About Anything Good.

2. Our System Has made Everyone Very selfish, Everyone Is Just Working For themselves and the Moral Values Of Helping, And Being Kind HAS totally Disappeared.

3. We Are Given Loads of Homework Which Is Just a waste of time As No One Does It With Full Heart.

4. Our system is Fully Based on Bookish Knowledge, Rather than Doing Things Practically We are taught to just mug up the things. Teachers too Encourage it.

5. No body is interested in Subjects like Political Science, Humanities, And Others Subjects related to Social Science, Which are more important for The Country. Everyone Wants to Study Science.

6. Our System has Set a Wring Mentality in the people. It Is Spoiling The Morale Of Our Society And The Imagination power of The People Has Just Disappeared.

Much More To say About It. !

Hello,

I want to add a point regarding the communication skills which is important part, which is been judged by each and every company. So primary and secondary school must add a course of soft skills and which should be made compulsory, so that students from an age of 10 start speaking confidently and a good personality comes out. As in now competition is very much and mostly students are lacking in their communication skills and fear which they have in their mind. So schools should introduce a subject in which students from a particular class start speaking confidently, this help the student itself and will be able gain more knowledge.

If such kind of courses will be there then our coming generation would be more an more confident, will have knowledge and will also be fearless will speaking in public and it will also help our country grow with excellent talent.

Why a course like this should be added because theoretical knowledge can gained by every body but how to speak confidently can be gained by speaking again and again. It will also encourage students to read newspapers and articles from beginning.

This would lead to a better education system in INDIA.

If anything needs to be change then it is urgency to change our educational system. Why should there be reservation in educational institutions on the basis of caste, if they are meritorious then they can compete with other students without any reservation also.

If reservation is there, then let it be on the basis of economic background, people who are economically weak definitely needs the helping hand of the government and these people are not only in SC, ST or OBC but in large number of upper castes.

The Ncert books which we study in 8th&9th class creating a different impact on students, when they introduce to civics and democracy the first lesson tells that political leaders misuse the power. They might misuse the power but don't tune the young minds by creating a bad impact, not on political leaders but on political system they lose hope in our democracy and they may tend to do so in future when they become political leaders.

The knowledge or the education which they are giving should be more practical instead of mugging up the whole subject, so that new ideas and new thoughts will come from ignited minds.

India needs quality education for that we should have eligible teachers and good environment when educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts it makes us to learn the moral values of the society because in the present society the crime rate is more in the age group of below 18. Children must be taught how to think not what to think.

Hello guys.

I am agree with that our Education system has got many flaws. But is this system is our real system? no we had a system in our ancestors era (vedic era). That was totally based upon the practical knowledge. We are lacking in understanding things and unable to learn them for a long time why? because we are trying to shift from our mother tongue HINDI which we speak and think.

Third - The fee structure of the schools. Now a days it is perception that if one school is charging higher fee than its very good school. You can see as government primary schools have been the schools of the poor people. Every middle class and upper class person wants to send his child into a private school.

Fourth - Lack of collaboration with industrial areas.

Coming to the Higher education we have a black hole of skill improvement. Even teachers of the Engineering colleges are not skilled enough to tell about the practical concept and working.

So there should be compulsion about the experience of at least 2 years of working in any industry.

And one more there should be one career consultancy workshop in 10th and 12th standards so that student and their parents should come to know which is the best option for them.

Thank you.

According to my personal opinion in our Indian education system may be possible certain great changes if we follow of these points as given below in order:

1. Indian government as well as country's people must give more attention of our education infrastructure to provide best education environment of our children.

2. We should change in our old syllabus patterns and add more practical work to provide proper practically knowledge to become perfect in their particular field.

3. We should contain such course material which should be interesting as well as depend on students level.

4. To make great renovation in our education system then we must also implemented it seriously with discipline and moral education also.

We should go for more applied education with practical knowledge. And building up proper cconcept. Not just memorising data and facts and run for huge marks and success. There should be proper infrastructure for those who are enthusiastic for research. And our WB should not just try to copy the Delhi board. The recent change in WBBSE syllabus is just making the concept numb. If the board want change then it should be started from the root of education system. Not just putting more advance scientific data's and making the syllabus humiliating. So it true, really a reform is needed.

Hello friends,

Am Nisha, In my point of view.

Nowadays education is fully based on book knowledge only. The current Education system does not give opportunity for the students to think individually based on their knowledge and create innovative things on their own. The system just allow us to mugging informations for only the sake of getting good marks. So there is no opportunity to show the students knowledge to the outside world.

Each and every child possess certain excellent talents that should be definitely shown through their education. Either the Education system should be reformed according to the student capabilities or the students must choose their domain according to their interest.

Finally I concluded that, the good Education system also helps to develop our nation all over the world so it must be reformed to practical knowledge and to provide updated knowledge or information.

Thank You.

I have one word for Indian education system that is "we are better illiterate".

This system is outdated, corrupt, lack of practical, creativity, imagination and physical education and development. The total curriculum of our education system is outdated. Now from early age we teach our children to mug up things rather than put their own thoughts in it that's why from early age we get bored from reading that's why most of Indian don't want to read any book rather it is educational or abstract even we don't like to read newspaper. Books develop or intellectual and personality if we don't read abstract book we can't understand outside world.

Early age we start reading series and mug up the books for getting good marks but it stop or creative things and stop to put our own views that's why some of us don't take life changing decision and teacher also responsible for that because they only give number when you write as book. Practical knowledge is essential. Even our brain science said that if you see and listen the thing you better understand it and it. I am hr professional and I know what problem I faced because of that in my job and lots of people face that. Physical education also important because it develop ourselves mentally and physically.

Read today that the government has suddenly woken up to the fact that there are more than 300 archaic laws in India and these will be repealed soon. The situation is similar in the case of our education system which is based on the system that was introduced in the early nineteenth century. While the British have moved on and they have innovated their own education system, we are still clinging on to it. As a result, generations after generations of children are suffering the pressures of the Indian syllabus. In our country, education is not about gaining knowledge with interest, rather it is about mugging up information just to pass the exams.

I think that the Indian education system can be really reformed if we make the following changes.

1. The amount of reserved quotas should be reduced. The amount of general seats has drastically reduced since the last 2 decades. Some people fake their identities to get such quotas.

2. The pupils should be punished if they write the same words as in the text books, this way cramming can be prohibited.

3. The textbooks should be changed every year so that the pupils cannot start learning from them and get an year head start. This also prevents cramming.

4. Previous year's question papers and question banks should be prohibited.

5. There should be a General Knowledge test every month to brush up the pupil's knowledge.

6. The pupils should be given the choice of choosing their careers in 8th standard so that they only study for the related subjects on the main. Other subjects should be additional.

7. Before declaring the results of every single exam there should be a surprise test or interview to check where the pupils stand.

8. As said before by Shubhankar Ayare there should be certificate renewal exams but every 10 years till one attains an age of 50 years.

9. All schools whether private or public should be given a surprise inspection every year.

Well I think this is it. To reform Indian education and then society.

Dear All,

The education system needs serious reforms in some of the aspects like.

1. Infrastructure:

Many Organizations are not maintaining proper infrastructure like buildings, equipment in Labs, playground and also fees limitations. The people have to see that the Organization is running as per the rules and regulations according to law.

2. Faculty:

There should be eligible persons as faculty in the organization instead of mentors/temporary staff to teach pupil.

3. Attendance:

The parents and teachers should observe the regularity of the student. The attendance cutoff should be more than 70% for every individual.

4. Marks:

The pass mark should be increased from 35% to 70%. When majority of the pupil are scoring more than 80% and 90%. It is ridiculous in keeping the cutoff at 35%.

5. Promotion:

The pupil who crossed the cutoff of 70% both in Attendance and marks should be promoted to next level. Fake medical bills in place of lack of attendance and promises of student/Parent for shortage of marks should not be encouraged.

6. Scholarships:

The Scholarships are to be given only to the eligible candidates who maintains proper attendance and secures required marks. The Scholarships should not be given based on religion, caste and community factors.

If these changes are implemented in the education system, it results in fruitful output and the values of the educational system will increased.

Thank you for giving me opportunity to share my views on Education in India.

The education in India is good and you can say best in the world, because you can see, listen, read, feel and analyse the things around us. People are getting knowledge in both theoretical and practical aspects. Due to this, today India is standing in the line of Developing Nation and it's a sign that in few years, India will be a developed nation. So it's a proud for us but you know that there is both positivity and negativity in a system, so there are some defects in our education system also for example.

1. Expensive education and it can't be afford by a poor Indian.
2. Corruption is there so a great loss in our education system and efficiency of system.
3. Sometimes partiality is there in schools and colleges.

We can remove all these defects with our trial again and again.

In my opinion.

Yes, a series of reforms are certainly required in our education system.

In India, only theoretical knowledge is being provided to students where provision of practical knowledge is the need of the hour.

Nowadays we see that, Students are losing interest in studies because of several such reasons.

One possible reason could be BOREDOM.

The education system in India requires the students to mug up each and every word written in their text books. The students just have a gist of the lessons or the chapters they are being taught by their respective 'teachers'.

They are not provided with proper knowledge of their subjects which eventually leaves the students too bored to study.

For that matter, the pressure builded up on students in class 12th and the hype created by teachers and parents on the students regarding the board examinations is also a major cause of concern. And even if they score well in their exams the fight doesn't end.

It is always said that there is no word like 'destiny'. It is we and our hard work that defines and decides our destiny.

But the question is, even after studying for long long hours, even after working harder, even after scoring a perfect 90+, why didn't our destiny take us to the college or university of our choice? thousands of such disheartened students are found asking such questions.

University of Delhi is where lies the toughest competition. The reserved students take over the advantage and capture all the seats of the other deserving candidates.

This is really annoying and all these series of events leaves such students demotivated and disheartened.

Sadly our education system is concentrating more on attracting rote learners rather than giving opportunities to students having a good knowledge base.

Till the time teachers don't take up any step forward in providing knowledge to the students by maintaining both a theoretical as well as a practical base, the situation of our country's education system will remain poor and it will definitely not let India to change its status from a DEVELOPING NATION to a DEVELOPED NATION.

Hi,

In my opinion education system needs serious reforms. I too agree with it. Because there are many schools coming nowadays. And among these schools if we take private schools they are just making the children to keep in stress for getting more marks. They are keeping unwanted pressure on the students. Their main aim is to get money without concern on child's development.

I would like to suggest e-learning system in schools. Rather than always looking at the board if children can see the subject in the form of pictures they can remember easily. Also practical knowledge should be given more importance than theory. Because this practical knowledge will be more in need in the future which determines the child's capacity or the ability to think and do the things.

When a child enters into this world, it starts discovering things by seeing and touching etc. This is the easiest way for a child to understand things. But the Indian system of education puts everything on paper. What the child expects to have is a broad view of learning. But the system pushes him to look into the book and study everything according to some principles. This is just putting theory into the childs mind unless the child has a high power of imagination. And in this way, children who get accustomed to this method because of the better effort they put in, come up, and the others lag behind due to lack of understanding. And this is magnified in the long run.

Now if the child is taken to the outside world where all activity resides, and is shown all the things he has to learn in his books, he will understand better. Because curiosity reigns in him. So he will be able to apply his knowledge into the real world and also will he be able to think and study practically. This is exactly what the students in countries like the USA and GB benefit from. This is the modern style of teaching and learning. And since this system is still not in use in India, the system of education in India has to be improved.

After reading everyone's viewpoints which are convincing enough to me.

I feel there should be also social awareness education for children in school.

Because India is a country which is developing, so until we have minds which think about the future of this country we cannot expect our future to be bright.

Education must be categorised into.

1) Math&Sciences (Math Phy chem) Engg courses.

2) Social Awareness (Civic sense, How to be a good citizen, How each individual can develop our country, Helping the poor, participating Social Work to society).

3) Social sciences (Geography, relevant history, economics).

4) languages (Soft Skills, Communication in English in Professional and other forms used Currently, Being Confident, Debates, Discussions Essay writing Thought Expression, Sign Language (For disabled) , Personality Development).

5) Environmental Sciences (How to be responsible towards environment, practical assignments, spread sanitation knowledge, Health, Overall importance of Environment and Human sync in Todays World.

6) Sports and Cultural sciences (Sports and Traditional Cultural activities. Yoga MEDITATION, Self Defense, Life saving skills etc. ).

Children from class 1 TO 6 should have all 6 of the above as common subjects in conceptual practical education methods and from 7th class they need to specialise these branches based on the students interest so that they take keen interest in studying them more and knowing more. Where we can tap their talent and help them change our country for better!

And lot of changes has to be taken in the education system. Many educational institutions has a habit of passing the students even tho they are poor in studies only to increase the institution's reputation. Changes should not be taken only by the educational institutions but also there should be change in the way how the students are thinking now-a-days.

In today's world, people are competing with education where ever we go. Now a days percentage or the secured marks have become more important than the knowledge of a person. Education system has become a commercial institute to the students. So how can the students gain knowledge when the system itself is concentrating on its key point called money, a child's parents want their child to be in a good position, so from beginning of their life they try to place their child in a good school and then college, if the child gets good marks they decide their kid is studying well, and if he doesn't score good marks they join their kid in some tuitions, not all but only few parents notice what their child wants to be. As a building cannot be built in a day, the changes in education system cannot be changed in a day/night, every individual in the society should take some measures so only we can make India a better country.

CBSE curriculum under Mr.Vineet Joshi Chairman of CBSE has brought more reforms to some real world situations. We can see a holistic development of a child. So we have transformed from theoretical knowledge to practical knowledge development. Moreover CBSE-I has been introduced in many schools catering the needs of our future generation. We need an innovative and research oriented education. We should develop critical thinking and problem solving skills along with leadership abilities.

Life skills education too is every essential. Open book exam system introduced by CBSE has threw away the rote learning system. Our higher education system should turn to research oriented one. RTE Act 2009 which still remains only in paper form should be implemented national level in full swing with proper monitoring to increase our quality of education. Parents and teachers should find out the real hidden talents of the children and support their career options.

Greet to one and all, in my point of view there are various areas in Indian education system which needs reformation, our education system is like read, give exams, get good marks and thats it. Despite of various schemes by government and crores of rupee invested in this sector the status is not going up, according to a survey held by Indian government more than 50% students of eighth class not know to read and write.

Some ways to make education system quality oriented are:

. With theoretical knowledge the practical aspects of the subject should be taught.

. Encourage the students that how they will apply there knowledge in the welfare of mankind.

. Exam pattern should be such that the practical problem related to the subject should be given so that student can apply knowledge "practically".

. Like IAS exam "ITS" (INDIAN TEACHING SERVICE) exam should be held to select the most promising candidate to train the budding mind which is going to be the future of the country.

. Courses which are the need of today and future should be included.

By making our education system by this approach we really educate a student and not only trained them. As Gandhiji also told that "By education I mean all round development of childs".

I teach in a University in Tamil Nadu and the standard of the students as well as teachers here is shockingly low. The MSc students who had got 70-80% in BSc and join Masters, do not know the subject even at school level. Many of them are not capable of understanding the subject even if you try to teach them. They write absolute nonsense in Exams and expect to pass! More surprisingly all other faculty here do pass them! It is because your teaching is valuated by the pass percentage and the student evaluation. Both will be very good if you give unreasonably high marks. If you fail many students the university authorities ask you to pass them because UGC evaluates the universities by the results. This is the sole reason why students pass. The government sponsors higher education, but are not in a state to evaluate the universities.

In my opinion higher education should not be free (or cost negligible amount) At least the students should be made to pay back the amount spent on their education. This will take care of the problem of not interested students wanting to get a degree. Higher education is not a must for a living. Those of the students who are really talented and have interest in the subject should get a masters degree.

Education must be interested in four outcomes:

Knowledge - What they know.

Practice - What our children are able to do.

Character - The kind of people they become.

Passion - This is positive energy that comes from focusing on what excites individual.

Knowledge is power and without practical application of knowledge it is of no value.

What is the force which influences an individual to have more knowledge? it is only the passion or interest.

Knowledge will give you power but character will give you respect.

Character includes wide range of positive human values which are humanity, courage, confidence, responsibility, leadership and hard work.

It doesn't mean all these should be acquired from school or college education only.

But children will acquire all the above from parents, family, schools, friends and society. Today our society is slowly habituating to evil things like suicide, rape, cyber crimes, theft, acid attack etc. Obviously we are all part of this society and definitely we will be affected.

Children are the foundation of our motherland.

I feel it is our responsibility to enhance the education of our children by imbibing knowledge, practice, character and passion from the primary stage itself.

The standards of the education is decreasing due to the entrance of the corporate collages They are concentration on the only Ranks and Marks they complete syllabus in just 3 or 4 months in hole year syllabus.

Well, I am an Indian. Our education system needs a lot of improvement. I face a lot of problems. Physics is my major one! We have to learn a lot of proofs and I mean a lot! I don't do rote learning, instead I focus on understanding the concept, but that's not helpful to me! Students, in my class, who wrote notes, get more marks, while I don't. I get really discouraged by that. There is no practical learning at all! Teachers give you notes and if you can remember them for a long time, then you're going to be the topper! It's just so exhausting!

Once, I asked my teacher something because I couldn't understand it. He told me but still, I didn't get it and he said, " Rote if you can't understand it. ".

For God sake, I don't want to learn your damn notes, I want to explore new things. I am sorry to say this, but, our education system sucks! And forget that our government will do something.

Hello friends I am Dheleepan from Tamil Nadu. In my point the education system needs a serious reform. I am currently doing BE. Take about 10 years back, there will be engineers in a city or a village. But now there is an engineer in one street. This shows the improvement, but not in basic education. Education primary thing is to cultivate a good citizen and not marks. But here for only money, marks some educational institution are running. Take Namakkal district (near Salem) schools which tops the state results fail to crack the IIT JEE and AIEEE. This clearly shows what education means to them.

Education not only civilize the people it also teaches beyond that. Take our state Tamil Nadu there are about 500 engineering colleges out of which only 100 colleges will have good infrastructure and other facility. In Tamil Nadu state there is no need to learn the basics, they only need marks. In India the research centers and the facilities are very weak. What we read through book don't apply practically. Only mark based education system is there and there is no creativity in this education system.

Most government schools lack basic facility and also staff don't come to class regularly. One example shows where our future teacher stands. A TET (Teacher Eligibility Test) was conducted for teachers to get a government job. 80% of them failed. This shows where this education system stands. A staff who has to teach student fails in the test means, it depicts our educational system. There is no entrance exam so most schools teach only 12th and skip the 11th syllabus completely.

Most students mug-up and write the test and score good marks. Also 12th question paper will not be upto the standards as most of the one marks will not be application-oriented.

So, In my point the educational system needs serious reform and has to provide education to all and more research centers has to be inaugurated.

Respected All,

I feel glad to partake in this thought provoking discussion to air my indictments about the education system in India. I would like to say here that, our education system needs a reform for sure. Whether is it a serious reform or a reform shouldn't be the pointer. Because every reform is made to rectify a serious policy paralysis. Few of our friends aired their anxiety about reservation, however we must understand and accept that we cannot put an end to reservations in 60 years for the discriminations occurred for thousands of years. Moreover, without such reservations, we can't have inclusive growth in the country as we still prohibit people who are living in forests and hills to join the mainstream. It is all upto the change in the mindset of the citizens and the political icons of India.

My apprehension lies on the privatisation of Education and turning education into an industrial hub. In the preamble of our constitution we call India as "socialist", however the lately made alterations in the policies or so-called reforms resemble India as a country of downright crony capitalism. If you are a political top brass either in state level or in union level, you will possess a quite number of arts and science colleges, polytechnic institutes, 1 or 2 engineering colleges, or if you like even a medical college. The only requirement is you need to be a hard politician of India nothing else. This sort of privatisation surely ruins the nation so bad so good. As we all call Indians, or a die hard democrats must realise the impact of capitalistic elements in society. We can even privatise anything in the country except health and education.

But alas, India is cautious in privatising these both. Creating awareness about family planning to curb rapid growth of population, increasing transparency in human resource development, increasing free and qualitative educations via constitutional means rather than the counterfeit socially sponsored schemes, reducing gender gap in education, mandating primary education through mother tongue, establishing basic educational institutes people friendly, increasing health, reducing the level of poverty and so forth need to be addressed with paramount vigilance. However we, the citizens and the elected representatives have forgotten all these societal blockades but focusing on US "the disgustingly dishonest capitalist country", UK, Australia ETC would do naught but serve in deep dissipation of our time and energy.

Thus, we must need reformation in the livelihood of indians that are off the outskirts of education bar the conscience of it. Thanks for frittering your precious time in reading my views of the reformations needed in Indian education system.

Hello friends,

The educational system of India needs a serious reform. Firstly the theoretical system should be changed to a practical one as we see there a lot many institutes but they render students jobless even after having a degree. Secondly,

There should be more awareness among the people about different fields as we find people have inner talent but they lack the proper guideline on how to use their talent.

Next, the quality of teachers also needs to improved by providing them with proper and timely training to build students capabilities. Also the reservation system needs a change as we see many a times the unreserved category, in-spite of having a deep and thorough knowledge are unable to enter into best institutes.

All these reforms will surely help Indian educational system improve to a great extent.

More schools in India are expecting money from the students. They don't really like to teach the students the real and present world of science that they had learned and experienced. Most of the schools make their students to MUG UP the answers and make them to vomit in the board exams. They don't feel and think 'on what field the student have real interest ?'. They force the students to do well in board exams to make their school ratings to get increased. This automatically makes the students to carry a no of burdens in their educational part of life. This should be changed.

Yes, I too agree with the fact that India education system need a reformation.

I think that the "System of Education" should be changed. Education is must in today's time, because without knowledge we doesn't anywhere. So, we have to develop our mind according to today's requirements.

In today's world, studies is a biggest competition in the world. Education is not what it is supposed to be. Education is preparing a person to face everyday life. Today's education produces only money making machines. The moral values are getting eroded. Education must make the student THINK. It must make them invent new ideas and not reinvent the same wheel. Education system is in the hand of government. So when government changes books every time development process of student is changed. Indian education system definitely without a doubt needs reforms.

Everyone is talking about how bad is our education system. However the thing we should look into it how to improve it. The theoretical educations system needs to be more practical, and no of institutions are there which are giving degrees like products in the shops. According to me there is the profession like ca which requires practical knowledge and hence the concern institute having their course with mandatory practical training which gives birth to a knowledgeable person called ca. This is the criteria to be followed by institution and stop selling the product in market.

The education system in the country need serious reforms to make higher education accessible to students from all sections of the society Despite having the desire and skills, thousands of students in the country were not able to pursue higher education. Only 15 per cent of the students in the country have access to higher education. This situation should change. This situation should change. The Central and State governments should work towards making the higher education accessible to all, With the present education system, only those who secured high marks were able to enter the portals of higher education.

Urging the government to bring in proactive measures that allowed the establishment of more universities and autonomous institutions the present affiliation system had shifted the focus of the universities from research to the conduct of examinations. The varsities were burdened with the conduct of examinations, evaluation and publication of results.

This needs a change. The universities should take up more research, publish research papers and bring in more innovative technologies, Mr. Viswanathan also urged the government to improve the school education system. According to a global survey conducted in 74 countries, India was ranked 73rd in terms of quality of education, while China got the top spot. We need to do more to improve the quality of our school education.

In my point of view,

There should be change in education system,

1. We should have more practical knowledge than the theoretical knowledge.

2. Now days everybody want to be a engineer or doctor. So there is should be a change in the fields. Many fields are there in india, but everybody concentrating only in engineering. After finishing the graduates. There is no vacant in their field. They joining job some other field which is not related to him /his field. So there should be change in education system.

The Education System in India definitely need a lot of change.

The Most important change would me in the marking system, where students are mainly judged on their performance in papers. Let me explain you this in detail. Consider two Scenarios. Student A has memorized the whole book, word to word. Student 2 has understood the concepts in the book. Student A will just vomit all the answers in the paper. Student B will write the answers in his own words. Now the result would be pretty sure. Student A secures a 70% marks and Student B secures only 50%. Now when the selection criteria for job would be 60%. Because of this the Student B will be deprived of the selection procedure even if he is having great knowledge. So according to me the education system should be made more practical, rather than concentrating only on theory. For example a students performance should be judged on a daily basis based on his performance during the lectures. A single exam cannot decide a students credibility.

The first thing that needs to be done is change the definition of "homework". Copying stuff already given in the book just to "fill the notebooks up" is what is prevalent in all the schools of our pathetic education system. Homework is all about learning stuff NOT given in the book, so homework should include research work and reports.

The "facts" given in Indian books have been proven wrong atleast 50 years ago, if not a hundred.

Also they teach how to thing to reach the goal. ?what a present situation. ? how to make a steps one the way how to develop to skills as per "goal" requirements. First of all how to know over own talent.

Generally All people are studies first. Often they think what will I do. They have not a particular idea about it. They simply blame to society. And compromise their "goal" And they doing different jobs. With some dissatisfaction. So at-least up to 12th standard they give moral education. The problem will be control.

Even Rabindranath Tagore wrote lengthy articles about how Indian education system needs to change. Funny thing is that from the colonial times, few things have changed. We have established IITs, IIMs, law schools and other institutions of excellence; students now routinely score 90% marks so that even students with 90+ percentage find it difficult to get into the colleges of their choice; but we do more of the same old stuff.

Education in India means to come to school, mug up the things & vomit them in exams. If you can learn, hurrah you are brilliant but if you are good in music, dance, art or writing then you are going to have a lot of hard work in your life.

Most of the friends told like practical knowledge is lesser than the theoretical knowledge. Its true definitely we can change this.

There should be more fields in Indian education system. Everybody wants to be doctor engineer. We can't have that much amount of post. So we have to distribute students in different fields. If someone like sport he should be a sportsman not a engineer same as if someone is interested in photography or history he or she must go for it. Every parents want their children as doctor, engineer or manager etc. We have to make all fields equal so if there is 100 vacancy for engineer there should be maximum 150 engineering student and they should be interested in their field so they study it well and develop better concept.

Other thing there is value of marks not knowledge. If there are two student one has better knowledge of subject and other has memorized everything. In exam first candidate write everything he knows in his word and second copy the answer line to line as book and has no knowledge. Then the second candidate will get 90-95% marks and first candidate will get 50% marks. Then after course the first candidate will see that he must have more than 70% marks to get selected. He has knowledge but not marks and the other candidate has marks but not knowledge.

There should be practical knowledge instead of theoretical. We always get theory knowledge and when we reach to the field we come to know that whatever we have studied is totally useless. There should be practical knowledge of everything.

The final thing is that we can fight for college after school there are so many option for us. But after graduation we have limited options and we can't fight more after graduation. After school if I go for something and I fail then I'll try for something which is better for me. But after graduation I can't change my field. So there should be less no of seat in every field. Ex- there are lots and lots of no of seat for engineering and less number of post. So reduce the seats.

Education is not a business.

Stop building colleges and school if you can't build a better candidate.

Today's Education system is more like a business institutes. Taking Admission in a good school is a difficult task for parents. It develops pressure not only to child but parents too. And once you get the admission in the school parents are realizing that their ward is not getting the education up to mark as in school just syllabus is taught and heavy projects are given to the ward which actually parents completes.

So Today's education according to me is becoming commercial. Today's education as reformed which is good but the teachers should understand their duties and put concentration on the child who is studying rather than having private tuition.

Hello friends.

If I am an educational minister of our country, I will implement this kind of educational system in INDIA.

->Students need not to join and study in a college for 4 years. Instead of wasting time In learning subjects in theory based education system, split that 4 years into two Halves.

->>For first two years make students work practically in different jobs related to engineering like.

A) Work in a mechanical shop so that you can get some knowledge about some name and work of the parts used. It will be helpful for mechanical engineering student.

B) Work in electricity board as electricians. So it will be useful for electrical students.

C) Work in a place of construction of buildings. You can came to know about use of materials used to construct a building. It is for civil engineers.

D) In some communicating service centre like BSNL etc - helpful for ECE department students.

->Like that separate the first two year as 8 three months and make students, who finished their 12th standard course and join engineering, to work in 8 different jobs related to engineering course for first two years So that they can practically know about things happening in different fields.

->For next two make them teach based on theory basis with the help of professional professors. It will be so helpful for their future wherever they go.

As the education getting worse so the people wants change but they didn't think how to change. The parents always aware of our education but didn't take responsibilities to make change. The problem arises only when we having more than enough schools/colleges this days nearly for small town also there are 20's of schools and colleges that to without proper education they didn't provide practical knowledge and playground.

So many don't know about games even sports names also they don't know. In that case the government should take action to cease such institutions those who are not providing play ground and practical knowledge. If the students goes to industry environment to see how the theoretical things are working in life they get skills to innovate new things. Even providing notes to students is not enough good after teaching the teacher wants notes from students and rectify their mistakes immediately this is right process to make them good in subjects.

Today's education system is really worrying the students. It has became an headache for all the students. Now the open text based system is going to start which has made the students more worried. In exams the student who write long answers get full marks while the student who is writing short answers but up to the point and concept does not get marks which he/she deserve. The education system should be changed like if you see the CBSE textbooks everything is based on fun and magic way. My mother always use to say me that the CBSE textbooks are the worst books ever she had seen. Education system is not that bad but it should need every much improvement.
