In my opinion, the education system in India needs some serious reform in its structure because we are living in a professional world and if we want to get success in this professional world then we have to acquire skills. And that is the area where education system of India needs to be improved because current education system of India is not focusing on skills they are only focusing on getting good marks that's the drawback of our education system now students are only learning they're not exploring they learn each and everything that is written in the book they are not curious enough to get the concept and explore the idea behind it they learn everything like a parrot and write it in exams and after the exams everything that they have learned is flushed away from their minds. That's the problem of our education system that students are only learning they are not exploring.
Yes they can get good Marks but they can never get such skills that they need to established themselves in this professional and competitive world. And this is also the most important reason behind unemployment in India because if they don't have such real world skills then how they can get a good job how they can survive. Good marks are not the only thing that you need to have to get a job you need skills and our education system is not providing these skills that's why we should learn from other countries countries like Holland. Holland is a country who is known for it's quality Education in this country children don't have to carry such heavy bags they have smart classes in every school they teach them professionally teach them the concept they teach them the idea that they need to know that they need to explore and in this country teachers never put so much burden on the student that you have to do homework everyday there is no homework in this country that's what we need to learn and bring in our education system too. And also the methodology that is currently in our education system is so outdated we need to adopt some new and fresh methodology to teach. We need to minimize the dependency on the books we need to focus more and more on smart classes because smart classes is the medium which can engage the child to learn. I don't know how anyone can teach such a tricky subject like science without engaging the student and if you only focus on bookish language then the student will get bored so we need to bring smart classes in school and teach students by using smart classes that can make a huge impact on the entire education system. And also it again minimises the dependency on books and also by that students get rid of such heavy bags. One another point is that are education system is becoming corrupt day by day and the ratio of corruption is increasing very fast now you can take an admission in any college without getting selected in the cutoff list by giving them a donation because nowadays education Institute becomes business there running their business. For them it doesn't matter if a boy who is super talented and gets a good marks don't get admission in college and the boy who is not that talented and without getting selected in cutoff list he's getting admission by just giving a donation that's a very very serious concern for us we need to raise our voice against it. Nowadays you can easily get a degree of any subject without giving an exam by just giving some money to the Institute and that is the biggest concern that we have to address.
There are lots of rules that is made by government to give free education to the student who cannot afford the fees of big schools there is right to education that stats that every school must reserve 25 percent seats for the student who can't afford there fees and government is paying for them but still there are lots of schools who are not implementing this they are not reserving seats for the for students. That's why the government has to implement this rule strictly and also the government should give a scholarship to those who can't afford the fees.
To conclude this I would like to say that we are a developing nation and if you want to become a developed nation then we need to invest more and more on our biggest future assets which is our children we need to make our education system the best education system of this world to produce the best talent. The talent that can beat the world and can make India great again.

|I think our education system needs to be changed. Because in this system, only theoretical knowledge are given but we need practical knowledge. Today students are focused on only scoring good marks but they should need to focus on knowledge.|
|Vinita said: (Jun 1, 2017)|
|Yes, Our Education system does need reforms.
We basically should focus on providing practical knowledge to students from the very basic level of schooling to make kids aware of the need of the things being taught.
But, in our schools, we are only concerned about the grades and marks a child scores completely ignoring their imaginative minds. Pressuring a child to score more for better college, for better job results only in cramming things up.
Limited to only textbooks for the information and not to question what is being taught is another hurdle.
We also need teachers who inspire and encourage their students to think out of the box for every problem they face be it a book problem or in real life. And not just stick to old traditional methods referred in books from decades.
A huge amount of fee charged by private institutions is a reason why many deserving students are deprived of better facilities due to economic factors.
Our Government should consider making books, uniforms and other stationery free to children from economically backwards classes thus disregarding the concept of Caste and Reservation. This is how I think we would really get the concept of Equity established in India.
We do need the introduction of technology in our education system.
But, we should not forget that Indian Doctors, engineers, teachers and all are very much praised in all over the world. The serious efforts put by aspirants of UPSC, CAT, CA, and for other PSUs jobs calls for applaud considering the level toughness being faced by aspirants. India accounts for around 40% of avid readers from all over the world. Our system does focus on getting the concepts and basics clear resulting in better understanding of the topic as well.
So, yes we do need reforms at some places but we can not just disregard our education system wholly.
|Sneha said: (May 22, 2017)|
|I think the reservation have to remove judge all according to marks ya if they passed exam fairly then gave scholarship and waiving their fees not reserved the seats because for that some talented and hard working students are not getting the chance and it not necessary that all lower cast are in a poverty line according to their income.|
|Sowndarya said: (Apr 7, 2017)|
According to me, today's education is only for scoring marks. There is no knowledge of the subject. Students are focused on getting marks only.
Education system should change for 50% theory and 50% practical classes. Then only students have much more interest to do something innovative.
|Gopala Krishnan said: (Mar 29, 2017)|
In my point of view, education is must reform the process of studying and teaching techniques many numbers of studying only to mug up and get the highest score how they are doing in practical they are nothing to do.
In our education 70% theory 30% practical in my opinion it will definately change the system of teaching students.
We all agree with this opinion.
|Shailesh Kumar Dubey said: (Mar 26, 2017)|
|Hello every one,
In my point of view, education system should change, nowadays theoretical 80% and practical 20% so students are just focusing get mark and for gaining knowledge theoretical and practical should be 50-50%.
And teaching method should improve.
|Prabisha Babu said: (Mar 23, 2017)|
|Hi, I am Prabisha. I would like to tell that Indian education is providing a free and compulsory education till the age of 14.
And in my view, in ancient India Gurukula System was existed which provides more cultural and ethical values along with the education.
For E.G: Before colonisation of India Britain had failed many attempts to conquer India, finally they found out the root of their failure- they found out that India's culture back then was strong enough which they maintain through their education system. And then Britain could conquer India by convincing that their education is better than ours by destroying the Indian education.
|Mathi said: (Mar 16, 2017)|
|Hi friends, according to me, the educational system should be in a 90 percent practical class it will better and one of the easiest way to understand and students were come out from mugging the theoretical classes.|
|Sree76652 said: (Mar 11, 2017)|
|Hey, guys! I almost read 20 to 25 comments above and everyone has expressed their perception towards Indian education system. I understand how it feels. And also I found common points that most of us are trying to say that our Indian education is outdated and about unqualified faculties and also parents compulsion to choose a particular and many more. But let us think for a minute how many of us are really looking for a happiness in life instead of only money making mind. Most of us choose either Engineering or medicine or try for some govt jobs, only to earn money and settle in life. But we don't follow our passion or our area of interest. In our country, we have plenty of options to choose but we are failed to know about that courses, we don't know them. Of course I'm with you guys that our education system needs a change on how to teach students effectively and how to make students to identify their interest and passion. One of our friend above has commented that she is still trying to identify her passion and she is going to start up some career guidance institute, that's good. She can make our younger generation to follow their passion.
How many of us know that we have a stream for dance, performing arts, vocal and many more streams which we always use to think as hobby, instead it's a career for us if we are best at it.
In my point of view education system should try to teach students from classes 1 to 6 about all basics and options for the students to choose their area of interest and teachers should be able to identify the interest and strengths of the student. Parents need to accept their child's interest and allow them to excellence in that field, instead of stopping them. Most of all students need to understand and love what they study. Not for mark's sake. But for enriching them with happenings around and their knowledge.
Even I'm still trying to find what am I good at? I hope before I die I will find it and Once I find I'm sure I'll be the happiest person in the world. Follow your dreams and passion guys, not money. Thanks.
|Kiran said: (Mar 5, 2017)|
|Also one more thing to add the admission process should be based completely on marks not on reservation got to scheduled caste because it will be bad for student doing hard work but getting no admission.|
|Kiran said: (Mar 5, 2017)|
|In foreign country, there is flexibility of subjects but in India we don't have so many options also our education is not updated ones it is not practical. There should be English medium only and more extra curricular activities and teachers do play imp role as well.|
|Luke Smedley said: (Feb 26, 2017)|
|As of my opinion, We need to start at the very beginning and reform the entire educational system, worldwide. Every continent, every country, every state/province/Borough. I genuinely believe that if we want to push progression as a race we need to provide more and a much better system than now to help get our younger and up and coming generations to the kind of position where they have useful skills and have been taught on a more individual level rather than grouped by ages which is what we do now, people should be grouped based on intelligence and ability to pick up/learn new skills/topics.
A petition to the person in charge of the UK educational system would be good, might not get us where we want right now but would hopefully make the government and governing bodies look at our existing system differently.
It is completely out-dated and needs to be changed as soon as we can.
We are currently the most destructive things/species residing on earth and if we want to stay here we need to provide our generations to come with the skills to fix and progress further in a beneficial way, things that will solve or give us more time to fix our issues that previous generations have created. Eg. Radiation in multiple countries still, due to nuclear weapons being used nearly a hundred years ago, if not over. Our fossil fuel crisis and shortage we currently have. We need an education system that will progress certain student if interested into understanding nuclear fission and other non-detrimental ways of creating renewable energy. As a start, things like wind turbines. Dams using water to turn turbines to create electricity which is then used in multiple ways. We need to keep progressing with the idea of renewable energy. Sources may change but the idea and discoveries to push us further aren't going to come from generations who already exist and for the most part believe fossil fuels are our only/best option for energy, be it electricity, gases that can be used on a global scale without impacting the earth and its atmosphere, including the 'ozone' layer further than what we are doing now.
Pretty much a rant but something needs to be done and something needs to kick-start and spread this ideology. Without it we are due to become extinct within a few hundred years if that, which on the big picture of things is very little time. We as a race will cause self-extinction centuries before our sun died out and we are forced to change planets/change our planet (earth) in a way for us to survive which again in the big picture of things is a huge problem and we should be trying to avoid it at all costs before things are too late for our race and many others.
The earth is self-regenerating, even after we are gone, even of every special of animals, mammals, reptiles etc alike become extinct the earth will regenerate and a new or existing species will come into play and become in some regards (top of the food-chain/most advanced species and they will populate earth). We have limited time and something needs to change in a very big way in ord right for us to survive anymore they a few hundred years from now.
|Kriya Doshi said: (Feb 25, 2017)|
|The education reforms need a huge reform. It need to change from the base itself, That is from the year a child goes to school. I am 21 and I still don't know what my passion is? I feel I should take an initiative to not let this happen to my future generation.
Am planning to start something out of this idea in Surat which would change the thinking abilities of students and help them cater to their career more smoothly.
|Tahreen Fazal said: (Feb 24, 2017)|
|Indian govt is spending only 3% of its GDP on education.
Whereas USA is spending 5.4% of its GDP, Brazil is spending 5.7% of its GDP and China invest heavily in its students and universities.In the Times higher education world reputation Rankings 2016, China could grab the ninth position in the top 100 universities list. So Indian govt needs to invest at least 4% of its GDP for the education
|Shiwangi Joshi said: (Feb 21, 2017)|
|Hi, all of you guys. I also agree with all it must have 2 change our education system. Nowadays education is just like became for getting good marks nothing else. Only just for good marks is not enough to make our growing youngsters even should be abilities skills have a some talent nd also should be willingness or curiosity 2 to do something different then we will say that our India's youngsters have an educated in really. Many of times we have also seen because of corruption, recommendation causes many of brilliant children whose have really skilled nd talent to do something but they can't admission in good college because unable to afford their fees nd other reason for recommendation. So it should change our education system nd teachers also they don't have any deep knowledge about their subject. They don't have any job lack of abilities so they came nd became a teacher. This type of education system directly shows bad affect in our growing students. In short, we should not only change our system even change our political system action bar corruption, recommendation.|
|Mayble Aricatt said: (Feb 19, 2017)|
|In my point of view, communication skill is the main issue that we face in india, The main problem is fluency when we talk to our clients or someone, so this will effect our future, may we have high marks but in the case of communicaion we will be down. To get a good job not only marks is criteria we need good communicatoion. So I think we must improve our communicaion skill from schools onwards.|
|Mohisina Shaik said: (Feb 13, 2017)|
|Our education system has been diluted.
There is less education and exams are more. I am completely against this we need to take steps to change it over.
|Aaditya Kumar said: (Feb 12, 2017)|
|Yes. I am also in the favour of the topic of education reforms in India. In India education is focused on theoretical knowledge more than practical knowledge which I don't know why the high officials in the fields don't change even if they can. My solution to this problem is to change the certification standards of the university on basis of practicals and application based knowledge.|
|Sanga Kalyani said: (Feb 10, 2017)|
|There is no quality education in our Indian education system only quantity education is existing. My idea is that there should be only sector for education that is either private or public. So that all get equal standard of education. There is a saying that prevention is better than cure, now it is too late to modify our educational system.|
|Shanvitha Chowdary said: (Feb 4, 2017)|
|Yes. Education system really needs very serious reforms. We have to make a transparent system which can provide fair chance to all majority in India. In ancient education, we had a system which sounds quite practical in the form of quality education without having interest in financial expenditure. In modern education system, the education has become a commercial sector where people spend lots of money to get quality education.|
|Karishma Reddy said: (Feb 4, 2017)|
|Our education system is not perfect because students are not learning the concept they are just mugging up the answer writing in the examinations. There are just studying to score marks but they are not gaining the knowledge. So I think government should take serious responsibility on this issue.|
|Rinmayee Patra said: (Feb 3, 2017)|
|Education must be intrinsically adopted by all through proper implementation of existing policy and creation of new effective policy.|
|Sumit Gupta said: (Jan 31, 2017)|
|Education system in India be viewed in two scenarios first is ancient education system and modern education system.
In ancient we had a system which sounds quite practical in the form of quality education without having interest in financial expenditure and education to all was also relevant.
In modern day education system the education has become a commercial sector where people spend lots of money to get quality education and the darkest point in that is those who are majority in India are unable to afford that commercialized education that's why being 75% literate till majority do not have quality and skills.
The lower class in India can't even afford to primary education to their children and most of the young generation lives in darker. That's why in a country which is second rapid developing country and strong economy still having children those who do rag picking selling goods on roadways, railways and work on tea stall.
We have to work on these things to make our young generation strong and take part in nation buildings. We have to provide education to all and make them strong in skills and knowledge.
We have to make a transparent system which can provide fair chance to all the majority in India.
By making root strong we can build emerging brain in our country which can take a step you to the developing.
Swami Vivekananda's quote was if you want to build a great nation you have to build a great society and to build a great society we have to give skills and knowledge in their hands.
|Diksha said: (Jan 25, 2017)|
|Yes, I really feel that education system needs serious reforms.
Today the central idea of education-gaining knowledge and ability to apply in real life has itself faded in the race of getting "HIGHEST MARKS", those marks that can never reveal the inner knowledge of a person. But still today these marks are considered as the sole criterion for distinguishing students.
Secondly, our attention is focused on some limited subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Maths, English blah blah blah, yet they have no importance in our life since most of us do not know how to apply them in real life!We all just gobble up the equations, formulae, laws, and vomit it out in the examination sheet, and then it becomes a history all forgotten!We have never strived to decipher the physical significance of all that we have studied till now!In other words, we are wasting the honourable efforts of those people who had spent their entire lives to find out a reason behind an observation.
We all have lost the curiosity to swim deep into the subject or field of our choice. All we do is to pass the "so-called" exams and capture the respective post!We may be literate, but still not educated. And even today's educated man does not guarantee that he is virtuous.
Cases are well-known where highly qualified officials are found guilty of certain ghastly crimes and frauds. Is this that our education system guarantees!
Lastly, we all have lost the ability to communicate. Thanks to the education system and the social networking sites, that we are always lost in our academic books, and have no idea about what is happening outside. We have lost the etiquettes to talk to elders, peers. Even these things are taught in school just to pass the exam, in the form of Q/Ans, and then all is forgotten forever.
Therefore, I believe that our education system needs serious reforms if we want to make our lives mentionable ones!
|Kumar said: (Jan 19, 2017)|
We know nowadays every house had one engineer (without a job) the main reason is even they don't know about their engineer subjects names also. Corporate colleges are mainly concentrating on their fee structure only and providing the facilities also to join in my college we give you the bond and after four years we will give the degree also like that.
In my opinion is the Indian govt has to take the serious action on these kinds of colleges and maintain some cut-off marks or percentages in candidates who has completed their 10+2 or 10+3 the chance to do the under graduation course in colleges.
By using these way the students are concentrated on their studies at least they gain the minimum knowledge about their career.
FRIENDS I tell you one real example.
Me and my friend completed graduation in someone of the famous engineering college in Hyderabad I got 73 % and he got 58 % now also I don't have any job, but my friend got the job in some other engineering college and he is going to take the classes on electronic subjects now. If I ask PTSP full form (Probability Theory and Stochastic Process) now also he wrote blunder of mistakes in that. That's why the Indian educational system needs serious reforms.
|Garvit said: (Jan 11, 2017)|
I think that our educational system needs serious reforms because since times immemorial we have not seen any such reform that could help the younger generations to love gaining knowledge.
Students are just pushing themselves to score high in exams but they are not interested in gaining knowledge; they do not have an interest in doing something creative. So that's the point of mine.
|Anonymous said: (Jan 8, 2017)|
I read your views and I think that your views match with me and that is why I am writing to you. I seriously want to convey this.
Can't we all students do something to change it. To make the education system better so that students could enjoy learning. The problem is that we all people just discuss it. What is the point of debating if we can't make it practically possible? Whenever I put forth this thing I am framed like an idiotic person but I am not kidding. I am damn serious that we all should become united to change it because no government is interested education. I mean since India gained independence, no party has tried to bring a conformational change in it.
Whoever is reading it please think about it.
Can't we all take a step forward and become enlightened youth? Please think about it because now I don't want to let it go.

Education has to be changed because.
There are three basic types of schools in India.
3. Semi Government.
Private System: I would like to start from school owner (Management level), Every year free does automatically increase by 10% to 40%. I don't know what does formula use by accountant to augment fees.
In India, there is lacking of passion in Youth Generation. No one wants to be a good teacher, we feel insulted to be a teacher.
Then Who are teachers?
Only 10% Passionate teachers are working well rest of 90% came from unsuccessful in the previous course of competition so they have not option except this golden chance, so for earning Join school and arrange Tuition program. Teacher has degree to prove but not passion for teaching result lacking of research, innovative, scientist etc.
I want to ask for system why poor student doesn't prefer medical rather rest of all courses. Reason is very clear poorly and corruption nothing else.
In the other hand.
Teacher has ability but we medium class has problem with Government school. We realize It as School of poor.
Some Government teachers are doing well that's why system is going on. We people have to change mindset against the Government school. Only this online discussion is not enough for this.
Thank you very much.
|Samved Iyer said: (Jan 7, 2017)|
|Sure our education system needs serious reforms. You see, practicals in schools are just treated as useless; they are done because it has to be done. No one is serious about practical approach, everyone is just busy cramming up theory.
Students like me, who are very bad at memorizing, used to fail tests for which we studied like hell. Because exams now test only memory and not our understanding. And the education system is so terrible that it decides our future on the basis of a stupid report card, which features only academics. So in a desperate bid to pass the exams, we do cheat in exams.
Now, if we cheat, the teachers catch us. Of course, they are being "true to their job" isn't it? After all, they were idols of honesty and truthfulness in their childhood, huh? Incarnation of Raja Satyavadi Harishchandra himself, right? And then these teachers ensure that the student feels totally embarrassed and is punished badly.
Come on, these are teachers. They should know that the present education system is PATHETIC. If they are true to their jobs, they would actually allow students to cheat in exams.
If the education system is so crooked, that it plays on the life of a student because of a report card, then it has no damn right to expect students to be fair and square, honest.
I encourage students. Go and cheat all you like. When students start cheating in large numbers, then these uneducated stupid CBSE chairman will do something. That egoistic CBSE chairman doesn't even respond to mails that students send to him.
Here we students are desperate and no one is bothered. I have found that talking to parents is also of no use at all; they just want marks.
Instead, our education system must focus equally on theory and practicals. Also, instead of cramming up facts into the heads of the students, just teach them very basic facts and let them discover the laws, theorems etc by themselves. Keep them away from books for that time. I think that will make learning more fun, this thing especially will work for Maths. And the syllabus in 11th and 12th needs to be considerably shortened. It is too much. Moreover, some really excellent teachers need to teach us, not the usual ones in whose classes we doze off to sleep. There is not a single college in India where all teachers are excellent. Minimum one will be a total moron and I don't mind telling you that I have had many.
|Chandrika said: (Dec 28, 2016)|
|I totally agree with you. I am also facing all these in my school and coachings. Their is a need to change our education system. Why we cram the fact of chemistry. The so called exemption and all these. We would focused on practical things and we should do only that which we will enjoy. The work is not the work for us, we should enjoy that work. Every can't be a doctor and engineers. If everyone become a doctor or engines, so who will do the other work. I am diedly pashinet about art. Drawing in not drawing for me it's an. I haven't have any words to explain my self but my parents, friends, relatives, teachers many other said that there is no shacop so you are wasting your time on artes. I have to say the only thing we should change our education system and things of our education department. We are the youth of our country. Not only youth we are the future of our country.|
|Sheetal Sharma said: (Dec 28, 2016)|
|Hello, I am also agree with your answers because if the grading system has not removed, the students become unable and depending. They don't want to do hard work.|
|Mahendra Yadav said: (Dec 27, 2016)|
According to me, our education system is not good because education system gets to be like machine. Every parent wanna to own child make be doc. And IAS and other be big person that we pressure on child. Every teacher won't be own school and college it take to rank on first position than they do prepare out and cheat in exam.
So this is unfaired. It is show condition of education in our country. It's not good because every child and every people take degree but no take knowledge. So I think it's not good.
|Shreya said: (Dec 27, 2016)|
|I just wanted to add something more to the thought of educational reform and that is the need to change it. Being an Indian student I definitely know how much depressed a student becomes because of all this. I have friends who think like me.
Most of the times, students don't know what actually they have to become. Until 10th we all are in the fight mode where you all are told by your parents to compete with the students to get good marks. In the end what a child learns is to get good marks only. We need education for getting knowledge but this tendency to make education your life just eats me up because what people want from us is to get good marks only. For that, you definitely have to cram because teachers like studying the bookish material. Students I feel are becoming dumber with this education system because they are only following and India needs leaders, not followers. This CBSE authority is just nonsense according to me because they are stupid and most idiotic persons on this earth. Without knowing anything about education (because I feel they have not even passed nursery) they make most of the creative Indians crammers. In this country what you have to do is to become an engineer or a doctor and that too from an IIT or AIIMS according to respective fields. This system is just too old. A child needs to have given a mixture of fields that means history with chemistry and maths for instance.
Secondly, even after a person wants to become a doctor or an engineer the situation in India is as such that you can't make your dream into a reality because seats are limited and this growing population makes it even tougher. Our great prime minister is thinking of how to take control of black money but he should use his mind in creating infrastructure and more colleges because land is becoming used and needed for industries and housing purposes. No country can develop until students know what they are doing. I mean not even a single student has interest in studies. Most of them want to become engineer or doctor just because they don't want to become teachers I mean ending up studying M.Sc or B.Tech, etc.
And if this is what you call education then I can just laugh at this system because half of your working force is getting wasted because of less opportunities and less of creative fields. For becoming a doctor why the hell does a student require to study physics. I mean physics is related to math's and if you are telling someone to study maths even if you know that he or she is not interested in it then that is telling him or her to cram the material. That is a fact and this is how the serious brilliant minds are just getting wasted because of less concerned parties who don't give a damn about anything particularly the importance of education and the need to reform it but I can't even blame them because it is we who a have allowed them to do such things without even protesting once. I just want to say this one thing that we all are the future and it is high time that we have to tell those CBSE authorities to change this so-called education system. We have to do something. Please try and understand it I am not kidding. You might be thinking that I am being stupid but I need your support for going into this system and protesting against the authorities if you are with me then please reply because I don't want to be dumb. Keeping silence is just not worth it.
|Shreya said: (Dec 25, 2016)|
|After reading many of the answers given here, I felt an urge to express my views on educational reforms. Literally speaking I don't think that what all is taught to the creative minds at school really defines knowledge. In reality, it's just a piece of writing until a student is able to understand it. Until class 10th none of the students try to understand some material but now they start understanding it because of boards. But the students who were understanding every bit of the knowledge given to them since the starting become frustrated because the repeated thought they get to hear that 10th is the base and you have to score well.
That student who understood everything comes to 11th selecting his subjects which he loves to study and that, for instance, is PCM that is non-med. He didn't know beyond that stuff (about competitions) that he loved studying these subjects. HE took these not to become an engineer rather he just wanted to study these for the sake of gaining knowledge. Also that he was interested in machines and he had started repairing them since he was 9! But the disappointment comes when he gets to know that what is left is just solving numerical. Another thing that comes to his mind is the frustration caused due to studies and getting good rank in coaching centers. He didn't get time now for repairing machines because his parents want him to become an engineer only. THEY have their own expectations of him.
The story doesn't end here. THE difference in class 10 and 11 studies makes him think of suicide and in the end he is murdered because of these CBSE authorities who don't actually know how to frame an education system where the difference between class 10 and 11 is huge where children don't know what they have to become ; where students just know how to get marks and not think about their study material.
That is the story of the majority of the students.
|Karunya said: (Dec 23, 2016)|
|Nowadays many students are not going for their higher studies, the reason behind most of them is that they didn't get good education in the school. Reason for that is our system and our teachers. Most schools made the students to memorize. So they can't get the real education at all. The students are getting bored because of these mugging system. So percentage of higher studies in our country is reduced. Students should ask the question, not the teachers alone. Students should be encouraged by the teachers to ask questions.|
|Vansh Gaint said: (Dec 21, 2016)|
|Everything should be practical so that we get to know the real potential of the student, and if he's good on the subject then main focus should be paid to the particular subject only.|
|Vijay Joshi said: (Dec 19, 2016)|
|Instead of practical equipment in the four walls, the syllabus and the study material gradation shall be updated and given priority. The knowledge of fundamentals of advanced techniques cannot be at the mercy of quality teachers.|
|Vikash Saini said: (Dec 18, 2016)|
|Yes, of course.
It must be reformed, sorry it must be changed. Just look when students go for home from school, they have been tired this is because they just got it, fully bored.
Classroom environment should be like that as if teacher teach tailoring, teacher should be responsible for training the student how he/she can be a fashion designer.
|Hasrshit Gupta said: (Dec 15, 2016)|
|I am also supporting the topic that the education system in India needs reforms such as encouraging the use of smart boards.
Because with the means of smart board, we can visualize what we are learning. It is the best way of learning anything. Another reform should be that we should emphasize on smart work rather than hard work.
|Anil Kumar said: (Dec 14, 2016)|
|Yes, because the Indian education system is not practical. It's very serious matter. I hope India govt make it practical. Level of primary education is bad need to solve this problem.|
|Shamli Rai said: (Dec 5, 2016)|
|Strange but true.
Our education system tests our memory and our intelligence.
|-Dhriti Shah said: (Dec 4, 2016)|
|What is education? An enlightening experience where you get to learn your favorite things but here the whole definition has been changed. Education in nowadays is getting good marks, then get the degree. But what's the use of degree that has to be just hung on the wall for rest of the years in front of our eyes? What the use of that knowledge that is just used to score marks. For eg: what's the use of History, science to a milk selling women she knows how to sell the milk, profit and loss so from this we can say just teach them the basis and later let them do what they love to do. I'm not saying that the systems are wrong I wanna say that it is not used in proper way. If you want to know that child has understood or not take examinations but such examinations should produce human beings of high morale and dignity and not being slaves of examination. It should be practically and not that classroom studies. It should make a student mentally and physically strong so they can solve their own problems, be independent and not that they keep on studying and don't enjoy their life and later when they have knowledge but not a single memory of their childhood that they can cherish.
This is what I think hope you like.

|The Indian education system is not supportive of the industrial requirements which need the state to invest special and huge funds in youth skill acquisition programs like ASAP of Government of Kerala &NSDC of Union Human resources dept. This drawback is even applicable for the central board. Our education system tells Bluetooth is an emerging technology for data transfer, which is actually an outdated technology on today's faster-developing world. This drawback is to be rectified by real-time update of the syllabus.
The education system should reduce its lean to exams in evaluation pattern to less than 20% of total score of a student and the rest 80% should be contributed by activities, behavior, attitude, personal skills and such other parameters.
No employee or industrialist can make success alone, success of a career is always related to the team a person associates. Therefore this should be kept in mind when formulating syllabus. Thus group skills will also form part of evaluation of a student.
If physics and maths form part of subject then dance and music should also be a part &students should be allowed to make theirs on combination of subjects to be studied by them for the year.
|Pankaj said: (Nov 30, 2016)|
|Yes, I do agree with the topic that education system really needs reform.
Firstly I would like to say not education everything every part of our life need some reform for better improvement so I am coming on my point.
As education plays an important role in our daily life because in each and every step their is need of eduction and education teach us how to talk, how to manage ourself and what we get if we add 2 +2 mean every thing is lying on education and we heard that children are the future of our country not in case of age they passed because of the knowledge where they learn from school and school gives education only so we already saw that its reform is necessary.
And nowadays school management are taking it too lightly and they made a business for earning money so govt have to take some step against this thing for the betterment.
And need of change in infrastructure of the school where they are going for getting education only so at last I would like to request our government To take crucial step for the reformation of edcuation+school.
|Shubham Jaiswal said: (Nov 23, 2016)|
|In India, their 80% of teachers comes in school college or any other department of education because they did not get their job what they want only 20% are there who has taken as an interest to teach other. Teachers are playing a crucial role in education field. If we have to improve our education system then we must improve our faculty member. Infrastructure and all nothing if will get good teacher then also education system will become good in India. For ex: there are so many is IPS are belonging from village.|
|Jatin said: (Nov 16, 2016)|

|Shraddha Gupta said: (Nov 10, 2016)|
|Education is one of the basic necessities of present modern era. It should not be based on caste system. Everyone should be given equal chance of proving himself/ herself. Government should invest more part of its budget on Indian education system. It should focus on application based subjects rather than mugging up. It will definitely create a positive impact on our society. At, last I would like to say that human mindset changes only when education level changes. Thank you.|
|P. Lakshmi said: (Oct 28, 2016)|
|Actually, our system of education is too boring for the students. There is no curiosity among the students. Our education should excite students.|
|Abhinaba Chandra said: (Oct 21, 2016)|
|See, one thing guys, the most important thing according to me is that, first of all, there should be a single education board and it should be called the "Central Board". As long as there are multiple boards as is the present situation, there is bound to be variation and problems in the long term. Like, let me give an example. When a student from CBSE board is going to IIT or any other all India level entrance exam, there you will find that this student from CBSE is more familiar to the type of exam pattern compared to a student who has studied in say West Bengal board where the education system is much lengthy and hence the answering style is also lengthy whereas in such exams you require good MCQ solving skills which require rigorous practice. It is quite hard for a student who has studied throughout in long and primitive manner to go and answer MCQ's while he is getting not enough time to make himself accustomed to such modern way of education. I think you all will surely appreciate my view.|
|Meena said: (Oct 19, 2016)|
|The government needs to invest more on educational sector, currently, government investing only 3-4% of GDP to the education sector. Then there want one education system that is common for all. That should be in high standard and come under government, not under private control.|
|Susheel Bhardwaj said: (Oct 16, 2016)|
|Yes, Indian education system needs serious reforms as it mainly focuses on the theoretical knowledge imparted to the students and has less to do with the practical knowledge which is very important from an application point of view. Reservation should not be based on caste, it should purely be on an economic basis in every competitive exam. Instead of bookish cramming, there should be more of an interactive teaching in the classroom as it will help to build up the confidence of the student.|
|Ajay Jangir (Bhadra,Rajasthan) said: (Sep 23, 2016)|
|I think education is an ongoing process to learn something but in this modern era, people think that education is only a source to get a job or earn money. There are many drawbacks of present Indian education system like-.
Firstly we focus on everything except research and training.
2. It is not easily affordable because 37% people are living in BPL in India.
3. The failure of government schools and colleges.
4. Low budget (only 4% of GDP).
5. Lack of moral education.
If we Indian want to improve our education system then don't blame to government and we have to do something for our education system.

|Malaya said: (Sep 19, 2016)|
|From my pint of view, Reservation is not good for Indian education system because due to reservation seat, there should be a lack of chances for the general students. And wherever in any govt jobs the examination cut off is lower than the general category cutoff, and also fee of the popular and reputed university was too high for general category students, while the reservation category paid in thousand of rupees.
For this reason, there has a negative mind of thinking arises on general category candidate.
Govt should eye on focus on this situation that's why a permanent solution should be got.
|Tariq Chaudhari said: (Sep 14, 2016)|
|I think at least in education system the reservation system should not be applied.
We have read a lot of times, that India has given jobs to less talented reserved category student and America gives jobs to talented unreserved category students who haven't got jobs in India due to the reservation system and America is developing on behalf of Indian talent.
So I think reservation system should not be applied in the education system. It should be fully based on merit because we know what is the status in higher education. Open category students have to pay fees in lakhs whereas sc students have to pay a fee in hundreds. Also because of reservation reserved category cutoff is lower than the general cutoff. Disadvantages which can be observed now. So according to me, the education system should be merit based.
|Aksh Kaushal said: (Sep 12, 2016)|
|In our educational system, education is only to get good scores. Not any extra knowledge. Even teachers and parents put pressure on students to get maximum marks. Students have judged on the basis of their scores, not knowledge.
Another thing is that the new syllabus should be updated time to time.
|Pratik said: (Sep 10, 2016)|
|Class strength should be limited. Means 35 students per class. When we keep that strength then each and every student's problem or any issue about his or her can solve.|
|Chandana said: (Sep 9, 2016)|
First of all, Indian education is theoretical, not practical. In our education system, the teacher said all the things we are just mugged up the things and simply write in the exams. We are not able to think a bit in our own way. Nowadays we are using technology for anything. This said to be we depend on technology. If this happens for a long time we are not able to do anything. I simply suggest you don't depend on technology think in your own way.
|Mandla Kavitha said: (Sep 9, 2016)|
|From my point of view, Indian education system should be changed.
In India, there is 80% theory and only 20% practical in studies.
It must and should be then only our India will develop in practical studies. Student get some knowledge.
It is useful for our India development.
|Divya Bhandari said: (Sep 7, 2016)|
|Definetly, yes, our education system really needs concerns. Nowadays we are bind to the subjective knowledge and knowledge is hampered. Grading system prevented the knowledge and application of studies.|
|Priya P.J. said: (Sep 5, 2016)|
|The educational system should surely be reformed in our country because nowadays education is all about passing exams instead of gaining knowledge.|
|Priyanshu Kumar said: (Aug 31, 2016)|
The grading system is effective for the students because in the grading system there is no fault. But it should end up because the student are easily getting the number and they do not think of their knowledge.
|Medha K said: (Aug 29, 2016)|
|Yes, the education system must be seriously reformed. Instead of paying such high amount of fees in schools students are not getting the adequate and proper amount of knowledge required at a particular age.
We should give proper educate from the starting to till the end. So that students can easily qualify themselves for their further higher education without any obstacle.
Our coming generation has an immense amount of skills and potential but only because of poor education quality they are not able to show it off properly.
So only hoping for an improvement in our education system as soon as possible.
|Vikash Vats said: (Aug 23, 2016)|
|From my point of view, there must be a change in the education system.
- Talented people should join the teaching profession.
1. First of all, there should be a more Practical curriculum in our syllabus. This is the major cause of lack of knowledge regarding the subject. There should be case studies in our syllabus.
2. There should be sports including in our curriculum. Sports brings mental freshness and students can focus on their studies better.
If in a school, there is the only study, then the students feel exhausted during the time of last lectures.
3. If sports are in our curriculum, then some students may choose it as their career.
4. Most of the syllabus of our subjects without new technology.
- The syllabus should be updated periodically.
5. Teachers need to use projectors, presentations or smart classes. I believe that the visual learning is far better than bookish study.
6. Last but important: One nation one board should be there.
7. Option to select the subject related interest.
|Preeti said: (Aug 12, 2016)|
|If they introduce new things each and every student must benefit from that otherwise it is a waste of time and effort. For instance if we bring case studies in our syllabus each student should do that, they should not copy from fellow students, they should gain knowledge from that otherwise, it leads to waste of that subject.
So changing the current education is as important as changing the mindset of students.
|Vvinay said: (Aug 11, 2016)|
|School, universities, college become a business now. Parents want to teach their child at better school but as a fee, they stop thought. A first class child fees are nearly 4 or 5 thousand and the parents admit their child to a government school.
A business man set up their names as regard their school.
|Raja Kumar said: (Aug 11, 2016)|
|I feel that our education system has been changing since last 5 years. Now everyone wants sound education & the mentality of parents are also changing. -.
Take an example : No of students in engineering was very small in 5 years ago but gradually increasing the rate of multiple times and last 2 year no. Of students in engineering is decreasing. Proof of this fact is that the no. Of seats in engineering all over India is about 18 lakhs & students admitted about 12 lakhs in last year. So our mentality has changed. There is no need to go in one direction opportunity is anywhere.
We are discussing here today's education system in India. Our education system is changing. The competition is very tough so we have many institutes for quality education. We have IIT'S, NIT'S, IIIT'S, IIM'S, DU, BHU and many private institutions which are the world's rated institute.
So I can say that our education system is going to be the best education system in the World.

|Primary education should reach to every citizen. School teachers and administration should be held responsible for absenteeism of children within a certain distance from schools. Number of schools to be formed so that it is reachable by the child on his own. Villagers having the education even up to 12th standard be engaged for teaching.|
|Rajat Shukla said: (Aug 7, 2016)|
|Hello, everyone. I want to say here that as no one is perfect in this universe like that our education system, teachers and students are also not perfect. Everyone blaming that our education system is not it should be reform. Yeah, all of you are right it is a very serious problem nowadays. It should be reform. But think that should our students also be reform. Your heart will say always that yea student should be also reform. I put an example that Mr. A and Mr. B are two students. Mr. A mugged whole syllable word by word and Mr. B understood the whole syllable and write in his own language but after the declaration of result Mr. A scored 90% and Mr. B scored 70%. Here only our education system is not wrong. We are also wrong. Because everyone congrats to Mr. A. No one congrats to Mr. B.
|Ritesh Thakur said: (Aug 3, 2016)|
|In my opinion, the education system in India needs serious reforms. Though there are many issues which can't be discussed here but I would like to highlight a few important issues.
1. The current system focuses more on the theory parts rather than the practical knowledge.
2. The system lacks the quality teaching, good laboratories, and infrastructure.
3. Here in India, the education system is mainly academic oriented. And it has become a common trend among the Indian people that this is only the way where the children can pursue the successful career and therefore the sports, arts, music, dance classes all are considered secondary and because of that who are academically poor get frustrated in the end.
4. The old syllabi are still followed in the schools and colleges. So, upgradation of the syllabi is the need of this hour.
5. The last point I would like mention here is the most important and that is the role of the parents. What I mean to say is that. The parents should spend a few hours daily in the evening with their children and should talk about their children\'s problems rather than watching the television.

|Well, everyone cogitates that having degrees and masters in abroad will give us a good life, but it's a counterfeit statement in my guess because education is constant everywhere. Education doesn't matter actually but the talent behind the education matters most. Even we had Arya Bhata who invented 0 and they had Albert Einstein and many more masters, even Microsoft CEO is from India right. Everyone has their own attitude and their own passion.|
|Sowju said: (Jul 28, 2016)|
Our education system depends on money. Because every school &college depends on it. If join a new student pay a donation&fee, rich peoples pay that money but poor people don't have that much of money. That's why poor children form a child labours spoils for life. If a change an education system every one study gain a knowledge then improve our education system as well as technology development.
|Suraj said: (Jul 28, 2016)|
|In my opinion, the present education system is a senseless system. What everyone wants is marks. If you got the good percentage you are the hero. If not. A zero. No one is seeing the students subject knowledge but marks and percentage only.|
|Rajib Sekhar Nath said: (Jul 23, 2016)|
|Nowadays education system is too poor because,
1) Today student has no outside knowledge they only know school books.
2) The student has poor knowledge about GK. They don't know what is going in the world, except movie, game or others.
3) Today all private school have only money expensive to show up.
4) Nowadays school is only for style, for example, Day before yesterday I asked a student what is our national birds she told me parrot, she is 7 standard, so tell me how poor knowledge is?
|Madara Arnav said: (Jul 22, 2016)|
|Education should be knowledge based as it leads to the overall development of a student. Actually, skills are dependent on knowledge. No instrument can be operated without having knowledge about it, which includes the basic principles involved in its functioning.|

|The education system needs serious reforms. The schools not only be excellent academically but much more. They are to be concerned with the cultivation of the total human being. The teachers should give the students freedom to flower naturally. We have laid too much emphasis on examinations and getting good degrees. It does not mean that students will be inferior academically, The teacher and the student have good relationship. The teacher have responsibility to see that fear in any form does not arise. The educator must not arouse fear in any form does not arise. Teaching is the greatest of all professions. The teacher is to bring about a new generation in the world.|

|Presently, this system teaches not for students, but also for parents. They given the activities for their parents only because the children don't have such knowledge about the projects in fact they are children. So, the education system should be modified according to the student as well as their parents.|
|Sangy said: (Jul 5, 2016)|
|To say it in a nutshell. We need --->>>.
1. Less Donkey's work like homework which doesn't help us in gaining knowledge.
2. Teacher's to have an extremely rigorous mental check up and stop forcing and blackmailing (for marks) us from mugging up their stupid notes.
3. Open Schooling type Education where we are under less pressure.
P.S: I suppose such things are not possible in a huge population like that of India but the Government must try :) Thanx!

|Well, Education system is provided by two sectors in India one public sector and another private sector in which control and funding coming from three different levels central, state and the private sector. In Indian constitution, there is a compulsory Education for the child from the year Six to fourteen years whether a boy or a girl.
In previous days even today also in Rural areas parents don't send their child for study due to lack of money and security.
In recent central government of India launched a scheme "BET BACHAO BETI PADHO" in which parents do not have to pay even a single Rupee for the education.

|Hi. A good school is much more than an educational opportunity; it can become a truly nurturing environment, for many akin to a second home. This is particularly relevant to Service parents: operations and postings mean that they are looking for a good school which gives a strong sense of community to all its members, pupils and staff alike. I think I made the right decision by choosing Greenwood High School for the overall academic growth of my child.|

|Phanindhar Koppela said: (May 30, 2016)|
|Our Indian education system is not in a correct way, we are still following old British system. Because of this students get only theoretical knowledge, In my point of view, students must have theoretical as well as practical knowledge. Suppose a student learnt theorems and formulas, but does not know how to implement and where to use. Then what is the purpose of by hard theorems and formulas?
Nowadays most of the students only trying to study for the top marks. Every student must have some idea about, What we are studying? Why are we studying? What is the use if this? I am not blaming students, our education system is also like that only. They provide materials with important questions and very important questions like that, and students will come with bookish knowledge.
Present education system focuses more on scores rather than knowledge. We should change our education system rather than only focusing on the theoretical knowledge we should take care of practical implementation. Then our education system will be good and India will be better.
|Ramachandran K said: (May 25, 2016)|
|The single biggest reform that Indian education needs is to remove the fixed part called time. Once the rigour of "academic year" is removed then a fixed time tenure in school vanishes. A student will not feel it is infra dig to study class VI to X or XII in a fixed number of years.
Then he or she can study concepts in math, science, social sciences, or languages at a pace one is comfortable, take formative or summative assessments at a convenient time and repeat learning sessions any number of times. This also gives the student time to decide on one's passion according to their attitude, aptitude, and competence.
The next set of reforms would be for govt to make school education completely free till Std X for everyone regardless of social status. Fix the fee for private schools, ensure that alone is collected, and create a simple payback system so that the fee amount comes back to the parents/fee payer.
|Harsh said: (May 24, 2016)|

|According to me, the Indian education really needs some serious reforms. Not in respect of the standard of teaching or books.
As one of my friends said that NCERT books ate not so good and completely knowledgeable to that extent to which it should, I want to correct him that NCERT books are more knowledgeable and the language is easy to understand. My principal sir, himself gave the priorities to the NCERT book in my school and the result was appreciable.
If education system needs reform then it should be in the quantity of syllabus.
Every year we saw that after results a lot of students commit suicide, and a lot of them got depressed so that it causes damage to their brains, therefore, I think the way of teaching should be made such that students would take interest in study and the fear of being failed or unsuccessful would be removed.
We can encourage and motivate students and it could also be added in extracurricular activities by the education policy.
We can motivate them by some films like tare Zameen per and three idiots also.
|Priya said: (Apr 27, 2016)|
|Like everything education system of India have both positive as well as negative points. The main focus is on increasing the quantity of the education. The students are made to cram the things and they have no knowledge of the basic concepts.
We need the best education system in India. The best system not the most expensive.
|Deepagarashu Pachailingam said: (Apr 18, 2016)|
|The education in India not to bad. For the public exam, most of the students just copy and paste in an exam. This is thing are going on nowadays. For the 12th standard from 11th itself taking 12 the classes. They don't know about the studies. They just copy and paste.
The parents should leave the children's options to study some of them an interest in computer science and some of them in biology, commerce, etc. But the parents thinks that the biology is good for our children and the student can't study and less mark.
For the students just learn about their studies in YouTube with the clear knowledge. When reading the subjects just read and see related some animations videos about the you are reading and their applications. This will helpful to enrich knowledge.
For most of them in college also copy and paste so that only they don't get any core company.
Stop studying and start learning.
|Apoorav said: (Mar 5, 2016)|
|Please I want everyone to note and think over the facts of education system which I am presenting below:
1) The CBSE board is playing with future of students of India by creating cheap standard ncert books which do not have proper information and students have to go for another help books and they lose money.
2) The main focus is to fit theoretical concepts in mind and no practicals are performed.
3) The cbse board maths paper 2013 and 2015 were beyond the level of a school students and out of syllabus and only those performed well who could afford expensive coaching classes proving that poor people stand nowhere.
4) The Childhood is becoming hell nowadays due to excessive pressure of many subjects which are not used in our real life. There should be one major subject of students interest according to will of each individual student and average level knowledge of other subjects should also be given.
5) No homework should be there. No out of syllabus exams as we also have to think of weak students.
6) Board exams should be abolished as there are competitive exams enough for judging the ability of students in India. School boards are unnecessary burden on children.
7) There should be low education fee structure so that poor can also afford good education.
8) We all have to remember that marks and knowledge are independent of each other. One scoring 90% may have less knowledge than one scoring 70%.
9) The exam level of schools should be of basic level which can make students learn concepts without stress and there should not be rat race in education as the marks scored below +2 and graduation level hardly matters.
10) At last, we are not donkeys to work in big companies. We should abolish preference to theoretical knowledge as it only creates donkeys. Theory originates from practical. If there is practical knowledge than theoretical knowledge automatically fits in mind.
Thats all about it. Hope some intelligent people understand what I am trying to say and foolish people please ignore this article.
|Anjali said: (Mar 3, 2016)|
|In my opinion the standard of teaching is the main problem in the education system. Even if there are limited resources in the school if the teachers are actually teaching instead of reading from the textbook, the more learning will take place.
In educational institutions in richer countries and in private schools we expect the standard of education to be higher. We also expect the students to have access to better resources. If the money is available then it can be spent on better resources so students can learn through doing experimentation, etc. Also money can be spent on training teachers at the educational institution and providing better salary for teaching staff.
The sad thing is in some schools (private and government) even if the resources are there they are simply collecting dust. It is much easier to teach a lesson without having to prepare for using the resources. This is laziness, but also due to lack of time to complete all the portions.
But the reality in India is that the required money is not readily available for most educational institutions. So students and teachers are managing with limited resources. That does not mean the students cannot be well educated. Using lots of resources are not the only way to teach students well. Lessons can be practical without having to spend money on buying expensive resources if the teachers and leaders of the schools plan and prepare good lessons for the students.
Question books and textbooks they are a resource. There are lots of ideas for activities in them also. But I think that's a good idea is for teachers to share and discuss ideas in meetings and record them in the scheme of work for each subject. Then teachers can prepare for lessons more easily and provide more practical lessons. Even ideas like taking the students outside to demonstrate something or taking students to the library to research a topic can make lessons more practical.
I also feel that if the lessons were longer (closer to 1 hour instead of 30 minutes) it would be easier to teach the subjects more thoroughly. Three part lesson, including different types of activities that can be used to remind students what they have learned or assess their understanding of the topic.
Finally, if education is conducted in a language both the student and teacher are most familiar with the communication of ideas will flow more easily and more learning will take place. This is why the regional language medium of instruction (in private or government school) is beneficial to the students. The standard of teaching and the learning environment in a school will be good if there is good management and teachers do their duty for the students. Education is not just about blindly following rules or a system. The aim should be to always to try to improve the system and impart knowledge and good values to the students.

I want to suggest a few points in rural areas government schools providing elementary education as free education. And it is compulsory for the teacher to pass the student so that students are not learning anything. Their fundamental base is not clear and for this they face many problems in higher studies.
And teachers are also not explaining anything in class they simply dictate the things and completing the class. As they are Govt teacher, student can't do anything to them because if they do so, then he/she will cut practical mark of their student. So the current education system should give more emphasis on selection of good teachers for the student.
The education system needs serious reforms
