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.

Hello friends,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello friends,

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.

Hello everyone.

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!

Hi friends.

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.

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.

Thank you.

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.

Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello all.

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

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

1) Because it has become totally commercial.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Hi friends.

According to me education.

Present education system focuses more on scores rather than knowledge.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello friends,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello everyone.

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

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

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

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

Even after having such bright student why are they not able to cope up with the other students of different countries? the only answer to this is that our curriculum. It has become so vast that its not at all making the child smarter moreover its making them confused and be ordinary and not show their talent. Students day by day are losing their interests in learning. The government is very much responsible for it.

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

But many a times we can also observe the problem of having unqualified or maybe such teachers who are not able to communicate well with students.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This would lead to a better education system in INDIA.

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

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

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

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

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

Hello guys.

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

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

Fourth - Lack of collaboration with industrial areas.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello friends,

Am Nisha, In my point of view.

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

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

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

Thank You.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dear All,

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

1. Infrastructure:

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

2. Faculty:

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

3. Attendance:

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

4. Marks:

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

5. Promotion:

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

6. Scholarships:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank You again my Friends.

HI, I am Ukusha, thanks to give me this opportunity to express my views about education system. According to me, "Education is the interesting way that improve our abilities with the help of our teachers". It provide us, the Skills, Abilities that how to become a successive person to nation. But now, It is only for naming. Because of our education system. India is a grateful example of, "Guru DRONACHARYA" and his shishya "EKALAVYA". In that time the education system is theory means 'through shlok ' as well as by practical also. So, I admit that, we should have to some changes are necessary to our Education system like this. Because the students are not try to understand the proper meaning of education, they are only for "How to get marks and ranks.

Why should students whose natural abilities are not tuned to Physics, Chemistry and Math be put under severe strain to study these subjects intensively in high schools? Why should students not interested in language specialization have to go through the torture of mugging up complex literary works? I work in the media field but nothing I learnt in my high school has helped me specialize in my current area of work. The Indian high school curriculum is designed for engineering and medical entrance tests. But those not interested in these areas end up wasting so much precious time during these formative years. I learnt most of what is required on the job.

I think there our education system must focus on practical thinking rather than theoretical learning. Presently students only mug up before the exams and write without actually understanding the topic. This kind of knowledge is not long lasting. Also the quality of education in engineering colleges is poor. Text books are full of errors so students are confused about studying.

In my opinion.

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

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

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

One possible reason could be BOREDOM.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Todays education system is just mere production of engineers and doctors. What is the use of education without moral value? if you turn out to be a well educated person without good character you are a failure. Though we learn integration at school no one will ask you what is integral 7xdx at a grocery shop. There you need only basic maths.

So practical knowledge and basic needs must be given importance.

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

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

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

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

What their said about is absolutely right now-a-days private educational institutions are playing with the life of students. That their only want to earn money as education is only business where their can earn a lot money. So they make students to mug up answers and making them not to think on their own way. Their separate students like duller and toppers. Make those toppers to mug up again from morning 7 to till next day morning 2 o clock. Again continue 7 o clock this goes on. After coming out of that college they suffer a lot that their lost their thinking ability and cannot move with real world. So these private educations institutions should be banded but their have political support so nobody can do anything.

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

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

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

Education must be categorised into.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We just keep on speaking but no action from anyone.

We all know that lots of reforms & improvements required in our Education systems, but no one willing to come together & initiate action.

We should come together & implement the ideas practically.

Without initiative, things can't be change.

The one thing, we must do that "everybody must have rights of good education without cost".

Education systems should not be privatized & it should be government service.

I am ready to initiate action to change the education system & I need support from you all.

My view is that age factor is more important. These days child at the age of 3 goes to school just to ease for the parents. At that age we make him study as a burden on him or her and child face a stress because mentally physically child is not ready to understand the study. So he try to run from studies. As per me government Has to fix the age of 5 years for admission in school for 1st standard. Before the age of 5 there should not be any education for children even the play school.

We need a new Educational reform for future India with a big bye for rote learning process.

We need a professional development program for teachers to best guide the students. We need exams only to test the real-life skills.

Our curriculum should give emphasis on inquiry-based education. We should promote independent learning and make them explore and research topics of their interests. By this we can creative and critical thinking along with social well being.

According to me education system in India is good and we have many educational institutions for medicine, engg etc. But most of the students are interested in studying in USA london for their higher studies only because in India those courses are not provided, if our Indian government try to provide even these courses in India then we have no need to go abroad to complete our education.

And lot of changes has to be taken in the education system. Many educational institutions has a habit of passing the students even tho they are poor in studies only to increase the institution's reputation. Changes should not be taken only by the educational institutions but also there should be change in the way how the students are thinking now-a-days. Students are interested in scoring 80% and 90% irrespect of the knowledge what they are learned these many days. Instead of focussing on the percentage I think it is good to gain the knowledge of the subject.

Even though government is making a lot of plan and doing hard work to provide good education system but people is not getting proper benefit and the reason is corruption. Corruption is not only in politics, corruption is proliferate in education. If all the university in India start working with 100% faith I promise not even 40% would pass. Universities answer school is passing a poor quality candidate. They say you write something we will give marks.

I just want to say that education system is not at all good. Jobbery begin here and that corrupted students of India taking our country toward darkness.

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

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

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