|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.

|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.

|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.

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.
|Bharat Mistry said: (Aug 8, 2016)|
|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.
|Pavan said: (Jul 29, 2016)|
|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.|
|Daisy said: (Jul 21, 2016)|
|The first thing is the teachers should give practical education to the children.|
|Sanjitha said: (Jul 18, 2016)|
|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.|
|Chennak said: (Jul 14, 2016)|
|Because students ate fully modernized so teachers should do some attraction to hold the students with them.|
|Errol said: (Jul 12, 2016)|
|School Teachers should not be permitted to give private tuitions.|
|Kuldip said: (Jul 11, 2016)|
|Should there be some syllabus throughout the country or not.|
|Devi R said: (Jul 11, 2016)|
|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!
|Batman said: (Jul 5, 2016)|
|It is very difficult for parents to decide which board to select. I think there should be a uniform system of education.|
|Yogendra Sahu said: (Jun 27, 2016)|
|Indian education system is correct. Because in India the teacher are giving firstly knowledge is what is our culture and how to respect our elder. And in other countries the rasio of suside for the stress (study) is very high to India.|
|Kai said: (Jun 23, 2016)|
|Teachers should be changed. Teaching method must improve.|
|Prapu@Sbp said: (Jun 16, 2016)|
|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.
|Karthik Gowda said: (Jun 16, 2016)|
|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.|
|Jbm Global said: (Jun 9, 2016)|
|In India, the education system has to be changed. Nowadays there are so many international schools in India, which educate the students with new teaching method.|
|Raja said: (May 31, 2016)|
|The education system has to be changed so that children should get a knowledgeable education not only based on theory. Nowadays there are so many schools and colleges in India but there are a few who gives the real knowledge.|
|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)|
|The education system must contain virtual classrooms. They are very helpful. Especially for the far away regions of villages. They need not a huge building. With this change children of villages will also be reached with high-end study material.|
|Bhavya Chauhan said: (May 5, 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.
|Taniya Choudhury said: (Feb 29, 2016)|
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.
|Pawandeep Singh said: (Feb 25, 2016)|
|In all school foreign language should be introduced and given more importance. Moreover sports activities and other cultural activities should be given equal importance as subject studies.|
|Hemalatha said: (Feb 13, 2016)|
|In my point of view, definitely we should change our education system. Because in state board examination (12th standard) having subjects like maths, physics, chemistry, computer science, biology these only. These also important.
But what I am going to say is, the CBSE students learned C, C++, Java, HTML those programming languages in school days itself, but state board student doesn't know anything about that languages.
During the college period CBSE students can learn again those concepts. But state students only facing the troubles like me. So present education system should be change. No private schools, colleges. All are should be same.
|Harinee said: (Feb 9, 2016)|
There are some good and bad things in our education system.
First of all, the private schools and colleges are started to get money for the people not for providing education. In most of the private institutions they get more fees from the people but they won't teach in a good way.
It can provide visual education to students to remember easily. It should also provide education to the poor people to increase the standard of living of people.
|Suraj said: (Jan 26, 2016)|
|The biggest problem in our education system is the mentality that our parent and students has set, which is the better marks you get, the better you are in studies and better job you will get. Due to this each and every field brings out few quality students because most of the students mug up the theories and concepts, and they don't know where to apply it.
So our education system need to change this mentality and establish more of practical knowledge through experiment, projects, live examples, etc. Many of the renowned private institutions have changed the way of teaching, but the government schools still need a lot to work upon it. As we have 70% of rural population and every student cannot pay such high fees of a private college or school.
|Shubhangi said: (Jan 23, 2016)|
|I think our education system doesn't provide us chances to give yourself time for recreation. It is based on theory and not practical based intellectual knowledge in countries like Japan vocational training is provided from sixth grade onwards as compared to India. So our education system should be changed in such a way that students get adamant and say that they want to study, let them go!|
|Santanu said: (Dec 23, 2015)|
|As a child I never got to know why do I study. They made me learn and somehow I mugged up a bit. But as I am growing I started correlating the need to study with cope up in life. I am always interested in electronic toys, how they work and all those art and crafts, but they never allowed or gave me time to get involved in those thing and get some knowledge. I somehow decided to deal with them till 10 and thought to get a lot of science practicals and projects to do in the lab, so I choose Science.
But there also they made me drown in lots of formula and laws and numeric, and about most of them, I had no idea of their importance in my life or in my interests. So I never had that zeal to study my course materials. I passed my days by small experimentation, observations, learning what I wanted from You Tube (because I can see things practically there) and getting from online sites and videos.
I gathered some practical knowledge and applied them to create several drones, planes and many projects but passed my exams with not so very good marks. So now, no good engineering college would select me and if somehow I get selected they will live me alone in middle of vast ocean of formulas and I will lose interest in life.
Student join engineering to get job, to get job they chase for marks, for marks they just mug up and stay upto the limits of their text books and this results in no innovation or invention by our technical students of our deemed institutions. Its just what I regret in my life that I am not able to study what I want to things have changed lets change the way to understand them.
|Nidhi said: (Dec 18, 2015)|
|Today's education system is challenging but it needs some changes. The education system puts more emphasis on theoretical knowledge than practical. Quality of education must be improved rather than quantity.|
|Nivi said: (Dec 10, 2015)|
|In my point of view education is not just learning the things theoretically but also reaching the actual point of things through practical way. We have learned many theorems and formulates in our childhood but where we all are applying them in our real life's.
Students should me educated in such a way that they need to know what they are learning and where they have to apply their knowledge in proper way, in which our education system in lacking.
And in other countries there are lot of facilities and opportunities provided to student's innovative and creative thinking and they are been encouraged. Where as in our country we have innovative and creative ideas but we don't have proper facilities to implement them that's where our education system is lagging and that's the one of the reason many of them are flying to other countries to do their masters.
|Ravi said: (Dec 7, 2015)|
|Hai friends when I think about the education system in India I feel sad because the youth have so much potential which is being wasted. The current education system has many problems which are complicated but can be fixed. To solve these problems it is important to identify the root causes of the problems.
The current education system we are following is basically the old British system which replaced the Gurukula system. In some ways this change was an improvement, for example education for everyone with more emphasis on reading and writing. In some ways it was a step backward for example, less importance given to understanding concepts, thinking skills and creativity, relationship between teacher and student and practical education. Many mathematical and scientific ideas were developed as a result of the Gurukula education system. These are recorded in the Vedas. In this way India has made a valuable contribution to the world.
I do believe there were many people who were genuinely trying to educate the Indian people for the benefit of the people. However I don't believe this was the general intention of our former colonial guests. According to a document written in 1835 by the British, one of the purposes of establishing the education system in India was to create "a class of persons, Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals, and in intellect. Did they fulfil their purpose? Does this class still exist in India today? Are they more educated or superior because they are like that? In my opinion it is time to move on from that kind of thinking and also from the style of education system which encourages it. Even the education system in UK has changed and improved but in India we are still following this old British system.
India needs to develop its own education system which includes the best ideas from the Gurukula system, British system as well as other education systems from around the world. The mentality that marks only are important needs to change. Sometimes we learn more from our failures than our successes. We need to educate our youth to become good skilled citizens, some of whom will become strong incorrupt leaders who serve the people instead of their own interests. Instead of empty words we need action from our politicians and educational leaders. I like the idea of government officials having to send their children to government schools. I think that would inspire them to improve the education system more quickly and be stricter with the assessment of the standard of teaching at schools and colleges. India has been used and abused for centuries. Now it is time to stop punishing ourselves and give the youth the good quality education they deserve.

|In India education system is pretty bad. They don't teach kids to be creative, all they care about is good grades. Kids don't know anything that's outside their textbook. Anyone can get good grades by reading same material over and over but does he really understand it? no.
It's very important to understand kids and since our country is going through population crisis, no one really cares about kids. Parents pop them out like candies and throw them in school. Teachers beat them up if they don't perform good, they come home and parents beat them up. It's damaging psychologically and emotionally. These kids grow up and repeat the same cycle as their parents because they don't know any better.
Modi needs to spend more time in US and learn their education system and then bring that same process here. Getting good grades is useless when you can't apply that same education in real world and make it useful.

|Our education system needs serious reforms. The reforms should be made from the base itself. Everyone is concerned about how much marks the student scored in the examination than how much knowledge he or she acquired. So the students start mugging up all things, thus our education system is now spoon feeding.
There is no practical knowledge in our education system, its all about theoretical facts. Theoretical study is needed but we are more focused on theoretical studies than practical studies. Today thousands of engineers are passing out from our country, but only a few of them are quality engineers, its because of the lack of practical knowledge.
Our India doesn't have a Google or Microsoft, its because of lack of innovation among our students. We are focused on mugging up rather than creativity.
Is its the high time to take immediate steps to provide quality education to all. It will not only increase the knowledge level of individual but also increase the development of the country.

|How to make the education system more practical? Teach the students how to use what they are studying in the real world.
Make the link between theoretical and practical means students should relate what they are studying to the surrounding environment. Also give students opportunities to use and develop skills means not only reading by-hearting and writing. Teachers can use more visual and physical activities and make lessons more exciting. Teachers can conduct discussion with students and test students understanding.
Educate in mother tongue so students can understand and communicate easily. This is natural and efficient method to learn. More private schools should teach students in mother tongue. They should not use English as a way to attract the customers to their business. How many parents are taking loans from the bank and sending children to private schools? Then after standard 10 students don't know English or mother tongue. But facilities are better in private schools.
Government needs to use money in the right way for the benefit of the students. They are providing food for students. Very good. Then good facilities should be in all schools also. If teachers are not attending classes they should get warning and if they still don't improve they should lose the job. Attract dedicated teachers. Dump the rest. Then only teaching standard will improve. Standard of textbooks are good but are only useful if the students get the textbooks at the start of the year. Why the students are getting textbook after the exam is done? Why? Fix these problems so students can study well.
Only countries that were colonialised are still trying to educate the youth in a foreign language. Developed countries around the world are educating youth in their own mother tongue. Ya we need to learn English also. Then improve the method of teaching languages. For example don't simply teach grammar or poetry. Focus on communication. Communicative English is more practical than English literature.
Also in developed countries people are getting good quality education for free. Even their plus 1 plus 2 is free. Why? Because most of their government schools are good standard. Why? One reason is they have more money per person. The other reason is they have fixed most of the problems. They also had problems in their government education system but they improved the system by dumping the people who don't do their job and attracting the right people.
But degree is costly there. India has many problems but I believe education can be the main solution. We should learn the right ideas from other countries not blindly ape them. Then only India can develop for everyone.

Today's education system being performed in worst manner. In our schools and colleges they are by hard the students. They don't teach in right way. They only teach in theoretical don't doing practical.
In today's generation max number of students fighting for marks that is not the students fault. Absolutely education fault. No practical knowledge how student get understand deeply about subject. However this is one side other side is they are giving materials important questions very important questions.
They are giving like this to students it leads students to unthinking human beings. We know one proverb no pain no gain. Here also like that with out self thinking students get solutions. This is also one of the main drawback in education system.
Finally I want to highlight few points:
1) Teach with practical.
2) Do answers or search answers from students.
3) Stop see education like a business.
Then see no other country would reach India position.
Thank you :).

|Education system, education is a right for everyone but it should be education not 'business'. Now a days it's like a hot cake for businessman. They don't think about ethics, they think about only benefit and the government have no constrain on them.
It is because government school/institute does not provide proper education to student which they need. We need to change the education system so that education no more a business.
In school there should be theoretical as well practical knowledge entertain. And teachers should have give more attention towards the student. Somehow in school there should be some ethical knowledge given to the student so that they become a proud for nation.
|Ashok Mahan said: (Oct 8, 2015)|
|I think first we have to make our infrastructure good so the unemployed can get job. May be we have the most graduates students in world but they are jobless. Indian education system based on theoretical knowledge not on skill based education. Students don't have practically knowledge they just have bookish knowledge.
If they had practical knowledge so it will help them for lifetime. So we have to make sure students get practical knowledge more then theoretical knowledge.

|Educational system in India needs a great reform. Today it is necessary that every child should be treated as per his ability and interest he has in a particular subject. Students should be made to discuss on various topics.|
|Dharaneesh said: (Sep 27, 2015)|
|I am from India. Tamil Nadu, Namakkal district. In my school we should only memorize the theory, but not in understanding the topics. I request the Indian government to change the education system from theory to practical method. The teacher also wants to get only high mark and rank but not in getting good knowledge.
|D Kamala said: (Sep 21, 2015)|
|My opinion is "we need reform from class 1" I shall give my ideas from class 1 to 5 children should be in schools very near to their houses. They should not travel cultural values. Morel instruction, behavior, healthy life, proper dressing and cleanliness should be taught in the regional language.
Students must be able to read and write regional language and English. This should be verified by a separate teem (excluding the teachers who are working in schools). From students and not by the records maintained by teachers.
|Abhijeet Rajan said: (Sep 17, 2015)|
|According to me, the education system of India need to improve a lot. Firstly in school and college, students have to be given practical knowledge so that they can easily understand their subject. Students have to judge on everyday performance not by organizing examination.
English can be taught as a language, but the other subject should be teach on their mother language so that student can easily understand in the language which he speak from birth. Sports and cultural activities should also be given equal weight age in the academic progress of a student.
In government school, students have to be given the facilities and technology equal to the private school. So that money making business will be finished in private school. In India teachers must have given high rank in compare to IAS, Doctors, Engineers because only teacher can make a better future tomorrow.

|Mahima said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|As we all know that we Indians are no where in this competitive world because the students and teachers both just desire mark sheet shining with perfect marks and assume that they will be able to get same shining career but it is not so in reality because students study only like a bookworm and teachers also like to mug up theoretically into student mind they don't even try to explain the fact behind any topic that is why, we are lagging behind in real life. Thus education system in India needs proper improvement.|
|Pankhuri said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|Moreover I think that no student should be judged on the basis of marks gained in board examinations because suppose if a brilliant student is ill or due to any other reasons could not perform well in the exam so his whole career is on stake. He won't get admission in good college that would effect his job n so on the process continues.|

|In my opinion, quality education is the right of every individual. In most of the countries quality education is provided free of cost till high school level but we can see the opposite in India. In most of the countries quality education is provided free of cost till high school level but we can see the opposite in India.
Educational-institutions should not be a money-maker. The poor is unable to meet the fee charged by the private school. In government schools students from different standard are force to sit in one class. Graduates from college do not know how to write a perfect CV.

|In my opinion education in India is actually deteriorating day by day due to new schemes launched by the government or the concerning authorities instead of removing the burden of studies the competitive spirit among students is vanishing.|
|Satyam Pandey said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|I think money has made all the difference because we are seeing that in government primary schools there is no scope of education they all are found names only. So poor people can not effort enough to send their child's in good expensive schools. Private schools are running their business only and earning money if government has provided those facilities and good sense of teaching than only their can be equality between private schools children those who come from rich or middle class families.
But Who think about unprivileged children those who can not effort for study so instead of study they have to here n there systems can be change but know one care about that reservation also one of the cause that ruined the education.
So I think we should always blame that he had not done anything not provided anything I think we should lack for what we can do. This will make the change we have a large youth.
And youth is the super power of any country that we already have.
|Sunil Kumar said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
In my view India is a great country but the Indian education system is not as great as India.
The change in the system has to come in the primary level. By improving the practical knowledge in children. But not to scroll them, I'm one them, that I'm scrolled by my teachers I afraid of going to school. So the teachers has to change and teach the lessons in friendly manner.
As the child grown up to secondary level the teachers making mistakes by giving them important questions. The children are turn this as a hobbit and are waiting for the questions and byhat them.
So the students and teachers have to change for better India and government also play it's vital role.
|Nidhi said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
Education it is so fascinated word I believe but other not that I know, even I know the reason yes I agree that there are different perspective of everyone in the society but I am unable to understand why this is so why people find this a burden rather than a fascinating world which gonna make them understand world in a better way they can change themselves as well as the world.
I again agree that many people find that fascinating but I am point those people who find studies a burden. Okay lets come to the topic that why are education system is not so good and what can we do to make them a better system.
My views for this is not of higher level its just the basic things that never nothing see but if we notice that I am pretty sure we can be the best.
The thing which we have to remove is,
- Political influence- usually people here on small things start giving them preference.
- Students as well as teachers should be Active and should be in doing their respective work.
- Little better accommodation.
- Banning of drugs in college or university premises.
- Calm atmosphere should be there. Which distract students less.
- 80% practical knowledge.
- Appreciation to all weather it's a failed or a winner.
- No discrimination on any basis.
I think by implementation of all such things we can get a better education system and one more thing every year new type of system should be implement and after sometime by comparing all systems one system which must have all the possible qualities to make the system which can be best out of waste!
That's all for this.
Thank you so much for this opportunity!
|Liza said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
I feel that Indian education system needs improvement. Education here needs to be more playful so that students do not find it a burden. Students must be given the opportunities to explore and be the best of themselves. Their ideas and opinions must be heard. Every Child has his /her own expression. And most importantly marks should be the criteria to judge someone's intelligence.
|Shubhi Maheshwari said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|Expressing my point of view,
In India we study for marks rather than for knowledge. It is because of our system only that we cramp things overnight and the next day we go for writing the exams and just by cramming most of us get good marks even without understanding various things related to our subjects.
Even at the graduation level in India we can't involve ourselves in many extracurricular activities because of the marks pressure as we require these marks for further education. We get a very little chance to get the knowledge regarding the practical and real life as our education system doesn't provide us with any of these facilities. We have quantity studies rather than quality studies.
Although on the other side our caste reservation system add charms to the negativeness of our education system as every year. Due to this hundreds of students who deserve the right thing doesn't able to get it and don't able to realize their dreams.
If this reservation system is not eradicated from India soon then outside countries will take our deserve and we will be going with our system of reserve. The need of the hour is to provide such education system right from the beginning so that it helps the students to inhibit in themselves the entrepreneur and life skills. Which is important for their bright career. By providing equal opportunities for all without any reservation system.
|Tanya Sharma said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|In my opinion the education system in India needs serious reforms. The system which prevails in our country judge the children on how many marks they score in exams. Sports, art and craft, music, dance are all considered secondary. These fields are made optional for children while academics is the whole sole leader. I agree with the fact that primary education is important for every person but after it is completed every student must be encouraged to follow his interests rather then being forced to peruse academics. All the extra curricular options must be made available to students as main subjects at 10+2 level so that students can actually focus with full enthusiasm and zeal shaping the goal they want to achieve.
Another most serious setback of our educations system is the reservations system. Someone in the above presented views said that it is important for an equal growth of our country. But let me remind you people all that we need for equal growth are good schools (govt) for all the backward classes, providing them the best of education at lower fee rates will also work but a concession in marks which is given is complete injustices to those students who work hard day and night and get great marks still don't get a good college. If you really want to uplift the nation then a more logical approach would be to introduce reservations on the basis of family income because the hard fact is not all backward classes are actually backward. But unfortunately our so called "nets" starving for votes will never bring such reforms in a fear of loosing there seats, sad but true.
Recently a judge passed an order that all the govt employees will enroll there children in govt schools only. The reason he gave for this was that in his opinion only then the govt schools will be upgraded. Is he wrong in any way? I don't think so. It is the duty of all the govt officials to work for the citizens but all they do is wash out there hands from all there responsibilities. They want there children to get the best education but what about the poorer section of the society? Don't they have the right to get the best education? So in am in complete favour of this reform or decision. If it will get enforced then at least primary education will definitely reach the roots of our country "the villages".
It is high tine that some serious changes are made in the education system for a better tomorrow.
|Vasvi Saini said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|Education system in our country need to improve a lot. Rather then keeping it to bookish knowledge we should shift to practical knowledge. Teaching students how to apply that bookish knowledge practically will help a lot. Also I am against this cutoff system because I feel it should not be like that only people scoring 90+ will only get admission in good college. I think they should slight low cutoff list.|
|Noopur Aggarwal said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
I totally agree with the fact that Indian education system has shortcomings. In my school I always used to wonder why are we taught certain topics that has nothing to do with the present scenario.
1. Most of the things that we are taught have no relevance with the job market.
2. Moreover, our system promotes rat race instead of focusing on the persona of the child.
3. The pedagogy is boring and is simply dependent on rote learning.
Apart from these shortcomings some major reformations are needed like,
1. The fix pattern of question papers every year encourage rote learning and must be changed in order to enable students to understand the concept.
2. I feel that there is unavailability of equal opportunities for all. Students are forced to pursue careers which our society demands. They must be encouraged to pursue career of their choice.
3. Grading system has hampered the thinking ability of the child. A one who scores 91 and the other scoring 100 are given the same grade. The system has made students lousy and needs immediate reformation.
4. Most importantly system focuses more on theoretical methods rather than practical. Practical approach is important in order to get employment.
|Prajjwal said: (Aug 30, 2015)|
In my point of view education system in our country is not as good as in other countries. In our country, education system is based on theoretical approach rather than practical approach. Our education system should be based on performing practical, so that student can easily get employment.
Now a days lots of school treat education as a business, but education is not a business. Providing education is a huge responsibility, they must remember that.
|Nitesh said: (Aug 24, 2015)|
According to me our education system is not good because education system get 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 teachers won't be own school and college it take 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.
|Aarti Sharma said: (Aug 24, 2015)|
Every one I think our education system not good because every child want rank of first and every parent want to own child make doctor and be big men and every teacher want be own school and college result perfect and rank of first then we all pressurize on child so it was not good and we all make be like machine like get be robot that's it not happen. Now this time every person near to degree but not also few knowledge.
|Rishi said: (Aug 9, 2015)|
|Truly, the education now is getting worse. The topics are of high standard and extremely good. But the problem is only with the method they follow to read a particular topic. They just by heart the topic but don't try to understand the subject in it. So they are only wanting the marks but not the knowledge. There is no use of simply getting the marks. The main problem is with the society. It is encouraging the people who get more marks but not the one who have talent and knowledge.|
|Santhosh said: (Aug 7, 2015)|
|Meaningful education is the need of the hour. One main purpose for educating people is to prepare them for work. This should not mean getting high marks only. What is the use of giving the students marks when they don't deserve them? Then the qualification is a sheet of paper only. This is why employers complain about education system. Some people don't have the required skills for the job. They got the marks ok. But they don't know what they are doing. If education is meaningful to a person what they are learning will stick in their mind.
See teachers are in a difficult situation also. They are always struggling to complete the syllabus in the given time. Too many school days are lost because of strikes or weather or whatever the reason. If this problem is fixed it will help the teachers and students because teachers have the freedom to teach a portion fully until most of the students understand. There are many dedicated teachers not all are like these useless ones who don't care about the students.
Students should understand what they are studying in class itself. There should be time to clear doubts and also practice questions. There is no use in simply loading the students with homework and project work. What is the use of giving homework on a topic the students don't understand? After doing two questions in class then set ten questions for homework. What is the use? Most students will just copy or parents will do the work for them. What have the students learned? The purpose of setting homework should be to assess what the student has learned and also to give them the opportunity to practice what they have already learned in class.
Parents should be more supportive to teachers and allow them to be strict. Then the students can learn discipline in school also. If the child is not studying hard or is copying homework teachers should be able to communicate with parents to help them understand the problem and fix the problem. Teachers and parents need to work together to help the students improve. There is no use in simply punishing. The punishment should have a meaning so the student corrects the problem. But for every punishment there should be three praises. That means the student needs encouragement to gain confidence and self belief. Then only more students will become self motivated to study harder.
Communication in mother tongue is essential for practical reasons. Then the students can concentrate on learning the subject itself. There won't be any doubts because of language barrier. There will already be doubts from the subject itself then why give the students another burden? Learning English is also important language skill. But if the students cannot study all the other subjects in their natural thinking language it will stop them from understanding fully and deeply. This will affect them badly in the future with higher education and jobs. If students can express themselves naturally in their mother tongue it will help with their character development and also allow them to be more creative. Instead of simply copying ideas they can develop their own ideas. A solid foundation is essential.
One other point is students bags are full of books every day. It is too much. Maybe the schools can photocopy the pages from the textbook for the week and give to students. The teachers and students need to be organised and use files and store everything properly. Students can keep textbooks at home and study but use the photocopies in class.
OK dear friends thank you for reading my opinions on the given topic.
|Keerthi Kumaran said: (Aug 2, 2015)|
|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.

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.
|Ajay Kumar said: (Jun 29, 2015)|
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.
|Jyothirlatha said: (Jun 21, 2015)|
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.
|K.P.Dhawad said: (Jun 8, 2015)|
|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.
|Addhyaapakan said: (Jun 5, 2015)|
|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.

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.

|In today's education system; Knowledge is given less importance than scores. Today talent is judged by scores which is irrelevant. Today education is not the subject of learning but only competition. There is a race to come first. I want somebody to make change in this education system.|

|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.

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.
The education system needs serious reforms
