Hello,

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

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

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

This would lead to a better education system in INDIA.

Why is our education system is like a broken bridge? Why we are losing the old prestige of our country?

We must increase the number of schools and job opportunities. Most of the people are migrating to other countries because of facilities and job opportunities. I am waiting for an rocking INDIA.

I love 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.

"Work hard in silence to put India as a developed nation and let success make the noise".

Hello guys.

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

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

Fourth - Lack of collaboration with industrial areas.

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

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

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

Thank you.

Dear all.

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

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

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

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

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

5. Parents and government should be students counselling so then can opt right career path according to their inborn talent.

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.

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".

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.

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Some ways to make education system quality oriented are:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Education must be interested in four outcomes:

Knowledge - What they know.

Practice - What our children are able to do.

Character - The kind of people they become.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Children are the foundation of our motherland.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Respected All,

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

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

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

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

Hello friends,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In my point of view,

There should be change in education system,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Generally All people are studies first. Often they think what will I do. They have not a particular idea about it. They simply blame to society.

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

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

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

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

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

Education is not a business.

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

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

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

Hello friends.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Education is an instrument which changes man into complete man. But today's education system making man into half, I mean half knowledge person. According to a great author a half knowledge person is dangerous. Because whatever he do, he will do with his half knowledge. This is the reason why Indians are not getting noble prizes!

And that can not make a man into man of ethics&values. That is the reason for increasing crime and rapes in India.

So we have to modify the system in such a way that education gives a child to act as human being and can deal any case at maturity and deep practical knowledge about subject and able to invent something new.

(here education includes not only physics economics etc. But also fine arts sports in whatever a man INTERESTED).

For this we have to change just school education system if it changes automatically everything changes involuntarily.

For this faculty should be excellent in his talents. Otherwise everything remains unchanged. SPOON FEEDING should be stopped. In my view, puranas Gurukuls are encouraged.

These changes must come up in our Indian Education System:

1. Make English as the main language for all students from 'KG'. And they must make students practice vocabulary from grade 2.

2. Hindi should be thought till 7th grade as compulsory subject so that the students hone the basic skills of the language.

3. In grade 8, students must be given freedom to take Hindi or not, Take computers or biology or arts as optional subjects.

4. On every "Saturday" a MCQ test (1 hour for all subjects) and 2 hours subjective tests of 30 marks must be taken. These tests should cover the syllabus completed (of all the subjects) in that week. It ensures that the student is revising the subjects done on that particular day when it was taught in class.

There are some key facts I observed that are going wrong and adding only to the pressure of the student.

1) We need to complete notebooks, assignments and projects that are nothing but copy-pastes from internet. They are merely completed as a formality for scoring those marks. What's the use of such things in schools when we learn nothing from them?

2) The exams can be good at testing problem solving abilities, but has two defects- first is the marking system (It doesn't point where the student lacks behind, it just tells the score. And these scores sometimes threaten students' self worth) and the second is that they don't teach us much about how to apply knowledge in practical situations. Exams could do with some real life scenarios and asking the student to solve/study them on the spot.

3) The extra curricular activities are imposed as formalities too. Students are made to dance/sing just because they can obey instructions of the teacher who sets the program. I've never seen someone dance or sing or even speak with true emotions on my school stage. They appear like trained parrots and machines instead. Students need to be given freedom to choose their own extra curricular activities AND what they do with that talent. Teachers can't decide such things; it takes away students' freedom.

4) I don't see a point in the whole 'discipline' act in our schools. We need to wear uncomfortable formal uniforms just because they look important, we need to walk in a line because that's a disciplined thing, we can't roam about our own school campus and need to stay in classes and all such senseless stuff. The school is meant for KIDS, for God's sake! Why can't we roam free, shout and sing and enjoy, explore the lovelier areas of school and wear comfortable clothes in our own school? This might seem a trivial thing at first, but it affects the students' sense of being, thirst for exploration, social skills and ability to have fun very tremendously. This is a main factor that turns kids into machines.

Last of all, thank you for giving such a good platform to put my views!!! It feels nice to know that people are beginning to questions these established things! :)

I am glad to have a chance participate in this interesting group discussion.

I think the planning of the Indian education is well but the applying the planning is not that well that is expected to be.

1). If you see any primary standard books in government school there are so many practical question when there is something new is introduced, Let see one example,

Teacher introduces about trees and tells their importance to the students and after that there are some questions like.

1). What are the trees you observe in your school premises.

2). Name the trees the you observe in your garden.

3). Did you observe any difference between them which them or big, which of them have more stems, leaves. Etc.

Like that but they did not concentrate on that part even they have interest the teacher don't let the students to concentrate on that part. She simply tell them answers and ask them to by-heart it for next class I will ask you. Like this.

In this way the good planning is going like burden to the students, this is happening because of the most of the teachers in government schools,

If you come to private schools the scenario is entirely horrible, the students even don't understood the question and answer they are just in hurry to by-heart them and in all the most bad thing is in most of the professional colleges also they don't learn concept and apply them they just simply take guide or material and by-heart the most important questions. This is the way the good planning twisted when it comes to the practical stage.

One of the prime ways of finding out if you are up that you are able to implement what you learnt in your daily needs. Indian education system lacks the procedure of practical education. Theoretical study is obvious but to some extent. Nowadays Indian students are more prone to books than practical uses. It should be changed.

Hai this is Shivani.

Thanks to all the people for their beautiful and interesting views and I do agree with some of them.

According to me education should be made interesting and not a burden on the student.

I loved studying but now its something like an official duty which is compulsory to do. Under such a compulsion, I'm unable to enjoy my studies, understand it or implement it in my real life. I know that it is common to all students.

Sorry to say but I'm really unhappy with India's education system. We have plans but they aren't executed properly.

Practical knowledge is must rather than theoretical one.

Improve the quality of education rather than the quantity.

My message today is time is running out, we have to act. Enough of discussions and debates.

Hoping for the best :).

I think to improve education open book exam system should conducted. No one likes to memorize information in his/her head. Teacher should teach basic concept of subject and real life problems on the basis of that problems. In exam they allowed to take their book with them to refer basic things like formulas, equations etc. Exam should be creative. The question asked in exam should be not same as the book instead the should be on the basis of the concept from the book so that student can figure out on their own.

When asked what is the speed of sound Albert Einstein said: "I do not carry such information in my mind since it is readily available in books. ".

In the END the motive of education should not to make students informative but make them knowledgeable and creative.

Hi, this is Simran.

I am totally fed up of our education system. I really loved and enjoyed studying but slowly slowly when I grew up I found our education system a total burden. I am lacking of my.

Own creativities and interests. I agree CCE pattern is good but it's not getting totally implemented, the way it is told and displayed. Today syllabus widerness is destroying.

Small ones open minds. Education system is totalising on.

Fetching marks and building an attitude of leaving others behind. As in boards we are told that we will not tell you what will come, just go thoroughly of the syllabus. What the fuck! Even teachers here are not able to give proper answer without the marking scheme, and before exams they also are not to make our syllabus complete which is too wider and sometimes we lack behind some chapters and we have to self study them. If this will be the condition how we will fetch %, leave others behind on which system focuses. Leave our intentions and creativities, system is not even able to accomplish what it is focusing on. I think these system makers are playing with our future.

Every year there is a new burden on child. Also,

There is a big problem also in schools teachers are not allowed to have tuitions of school in which they teach but what is going on is that school teachers do this and tell paper to their students of her school in which she teach. What is this han? This kind of partiality had happened with me a lots of time. I don' t think our education system focuses to educate us but the only want to fetch money and money. If this continued one day will come when in order to say our India best we will be supposed to say another country best and India will lack off literate population and children and also a good human resource.

THERE IS A SERIOUS NEED TO CHANGE OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM.

There should be a system in which children are not spoiled by their teachers but are asked to what they really need. In this developing world we need practical skills and little bit theoretical also but not all theoretical.

TODAY WE SMALL CHILDREN HAVE NO TIME FOR FAMILY, PLAY, FRIENDS, INTERESTS AND WORLD. If we say this to our system I know they will say if you want this then you are a loser because a winner is only who fetch marks and leave others behind wit no feeling or thought of other thing. Thy call this a hard work. I think this kind of hard work is the key to " A SUCCESS WHICH IS A HELL!. ".

Hi friends.

I really appreciate your views regarding on this topic and I would like to present my views on this topic also. According to me education has became like ocean. In India every citizen has realize that education is the part of our life. Its never mind that your education should be done in India or abroad but achieve your goals. Finally respect to our motherland and do something useful for the country.

No one can change the Education System because Education is also corrupted so forget about the problems. Never give a chance to last, be a first in your life.

Hi buddies,

The real meaning of the education is TO LEARN THINGS IN A RIGHT WAY that means it not only refers to only studies but also any other activities that one interested to learn. Simply speaking, for a cricket player cricket coaching is a education and for a chess player playing chess and preparing is an education and to be a graduate academic studies are the education.

But in the current situation it is not really happening most of all the education institutions are in mad rush to gain more profits by making education as the business.

So there is urgent need of reforms to retain the glory of education.

Many of the institutions are making the students to sit hours to hours in front of the books and making them far reach from the practical knowledge. Though many students are good at studies they are unable to sustain in the practical world.

All the institutions are mesmerizing the parents with the useless advertisements.

As parent one should also think what the real education to his ward.

A good education is when.

1) One can not try to mug up the syllabus but understand it and implement it in his practical life.

2) When the student was no trying to study but loving to study.

Finally I want to say that there is an urgent need of reforms in the society.

Good to see the discussion going on right route without deviation.

Few things to highlight were.

1. Where do our child education start from ? - we all forget that our child starts learning first at home then at nursery/primary level. This is were the strong foundation to be made.

2. Every parent should bother about the knowledge, problem solving skills, aptitude, language skills were built for their child or not. These evaluation is irrespective of marks/ranks they score.

3. Every parent should spare time to better understand their child's interest, the areas where they excel, the areas where they can be eligible to get molded to excel. Avoid comparison with your neighbor children.

4. We all very well know sitting & speaking about the existing Education system or our views are not going to help us immediately. Remember, in INDIA changes for betterment are NOT SO EASY. This is not to blame our country but pertaining to what & where the country is driving, we can't expect betterment's in any field soon.

We take the responsibilities to change our generation & neighbors by making them understand & implement the responsibilities which are very well feasible & under control by them.

5. Educate your child either in your native/foreign (English) language the problem solving techniques, situation handling, social awareness, behaviour, analytical skills, etc. For doing this parents need NOT BE MUST EDUCATED. Our country had great scholars in ancient days when we had no formula for education. Our scholars had excelled in many areas like astrology, mathematics (vedic) , business, attitude (joint family has rendered way for TEAM WORK learning, DISTRIBUTION of work, RESPONSIBILITIES, PLANNING checklist preparation for performing prayers during festivals, etc. ).

Probably, these methodologies have not been documented.

6. Ensure your child understands the concepts/base method & is able to recollect it.

7. Place your child in RIGHT PLACE where their knowledge & attitude is well built rather than putting them in TOP NOTCH schools & colleges.

8. Teach your child the self learning capability. Lots of tips there to enhance your child skills.

9. Once we parents stop bothering about education system then all education business funda will take right route.

Our education system has developed many loopholes. From school onwards children are bound to get into the rat race of percentage game. His percentage defines his abilities while his hobbies are neglected just for the sake of winning this murky race. Colleges cutoffs have reached to 100% even a 98% holder is shown the gate but does that make him any lesser then the 99% holder?Thanks to our education system for developing such kind of disparities.

What we are taught in colleges is far apart what companies demand. Industries demand wide practical knowledge but our syllabus sprays focus mostly on theoretical aspect. Educational institutes are becoming money making organisations. There is an urgent need of the hour to curb this ongoing problem. Syllabuses should be prepared looking at the vision of students including sports and other extra curricular besides studies. Percentage should not be the only point of judgement.

I think that if all the people give freedom to their child, especially, to the girls then I am sure that a day will become when India will be at the top in he world.

But what happens in schools and colleges? Students are well talented to score a very high marks and getting a good college. After that, placing a good company.

A good education system has the ability to change its society and country. But Indian education system is not doing like this. Our education system can produce a good student not a good citizen of India.

Truly speaking we are not teached to respect our culture, language also most of us unaware of Indian Ways of life. New generation is best example not even have manners how to behave with elders. Every country in the world have respect for their customs and tradition, their languages and their old practices in religion.

But in our country we do not have respect for our National language Hindi and other languages spoken in India, even our constitution is written in English how foolish it is. This is all done by Britishers To break India backbone. Are aware what Britishers says when they fist came to India "we not find any single man poor, All here are rich & living a good and prosper life, all here are Independent.

If We have to make Indian our slave & rule the whole country, we have to break the backbone of Indian that is their believe in their traditions, customs, language, Respect given to teachers, their ways of living life, their religion teachings, their scared books (epics) and all that which make them thrive & independent, " they succeed what we are studying today is based on education system made by English men not ours.

Every human being is endowed with some sort skill in him. Basically education should strive to bring that skill to surface in him and develop that inherent and innate faculty in him.

Further, education should not make one just a xerox machine of the books he had studied, while it must impel in him the network to research-mindedness on original path-finding useful discoveries and inventions.

Above everything else one must do away with the idea that the degree he would secure would fetch him employment potential. He must forget it. He must endeavor landing on his own enterprise however humble it might be at the inception.

"Newton was sitting under a tree. An apple fell on him & he thought that why didn't it go up & hence discovered gravity.

But if a hungry stomach is sitting under a tree, he will only think to get all apples down".

That is what our education system do. It hardly provides opportunities & when it provides it never let us to grab the opportunities.

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

Yes we have got a right, right to education which offers free education but still millions do not go to school because they are better at work earning their bread as our education system doesn't ensures them a better life.

Thus our education system is lacking. Yes it has produced gems but 2 or 3 out of a class of 40. The rest that couldn't find the way willingly or unwillingly step in corrupt affairs. & those 2-3 who succeed in our education system when find these corrupt people are fetching a better life then they too become unsatisfied.

Thus every member of society who succeed or fail in our education system is not satisfied.

A country where every Indian kneels before Goddess Durga, Lakshmi or Saraswati can't respect a girl because our education system teach them differences but not how to bridge them.

On the whole our education system needs serious changes.

I believe the system needs to change. Until now I used to find other levels stupid. I used to believe their studies are too easy. But what I didn't know was that those kids are far more intelligent than I am in practical ways. I have so much pressure on me. I agree, there is this mindset that if I take commerce I have to do some financial job or accountant. We are teens. We can't decide what we want to have for lunch or dinner and they expect us to decide our future. 14 year olds. 14 years of living they have had and they are expected to decide what they want to do their entire life.

Aw we all know that India's education is very worst in all over the word. It is seriously need to change. There is no practical knowledge about the current technology.

Our syllabus is traditional so it needs to change according to updated of the technology.

Our Indians have a major problem that is they always try to inherit traditional things do not want to workout individually according to their thoughts. And they always want to live comfort zone.

In India one major problem is that homesickness. Parents also don't want to go their children far away from us so a person who has best talent can do nothing only because of his/her parents happiness.

Well, after reading this stuff, I find that everyone are stressing on creativity and practical learning. BITCH PLEASE, our Indian education system stresses on that, if you observe the cbse textbooks, they actually try to bring an interaction with the topic and student. Moreover they stress on learning by doing (cce). The fact is even though we have the plan we can't execute it because we have teachers of low standards. Also creative learning can come all of a sudden. It has to be done in young age and obviously our primary teachers are insisting on mugging up rather than learning it by feeling.

In this time most of the college have not sufficient lecture to provide education to students. But some state govt are initiate to provide Laptop to the students.

If students of our nation use properly for studies they can achieve something If they use it to watch movie, Youtube and use social networking it gives bad impact to us. Then comes to school. School is the temple of learning if teachers of school are initiate to prepare midday meal what will they teach in school. Our schools are starts from 10.00am and end in 4.00pm. It is 6 hours duty.

I'm really really young to speak on the topic, but according to me the Education Minister should come out with a new board. A board in with creativity is nurtured and you learn more practical stuff with less testing, school is very pressurizing for me now and I absolutely hate it.

In the new board by practical things I mean things we will actually end up using in the future, like they could give us assignments on literally doing market analyzing by going to different stores etc. Then actually shooting whole films, actually programming, actually mixing chemicals and actually cutting open animals (dead, preserved ones of course) and stuff like that with minimal testing.

That way I think most people will actually enjoy school and we will know how to do things in the future rather than simply starting off as a newbie. Hopefully some of you agree with me. The other thing is we should be allowed to let our imagination loose, I go to and ICSE school and I am not allowed to write essays the way I want because of the board, I want to write freely (I can't write with too many restriction) but the board stops me from doing it so I get bad marks in essay writing, the vague topics are much better to write on but we are not allowed them.

Hello this is Aakash Malhotra, I am a 3D Artist, and also doing my Final year in B.Com.

I've also read above answers, and I also have to say a lot, Please have a look.

What is wrong with the education system we follow today in our country?

The general education system is focused only on examinations rather than training students for the future and really testing their knowledge. Because of this, students are forced to take tests that show only their retention powers, not their actual capacity or knowledge. So engineers today cannot do actual work in technology and doctors do not go to people who need their services.

Is the problem with the system or the approach towards education as a whole?

Today, students are completely professionally-oriented and they take examinations for the same rather than to gain knowledge, or do research in the subject. In our colleges, we have infrastructure and good faculty, but there is no motivation to do research. Even in the field of medicine, no one is motivated to do research because everything is so examination and job-oriented.

So who is at fault for this mess?

Those regulating and those making policies are equally responsible. If the system has deteriorated to this level where learning has been substituted by a race to clear an examination, regulators and policymakers are to blame for not acting on time to correct this anomaly. It's also not enough to have rules and regulations, it is important how they are implemented. Government bodies are not controlling institutions. That should become a priority. Also, for good institutions that are promoting real learning, there should be no interference.

Is the present practice of allowing the private sector indiscriminately into education the right approach?

Most educational engineering and medical colleges owned by the government are not equipped in terms of infrastructure and faculty and their quality has been suffering. The better government institutions cannot accommodate the vast number of students who are seeking to get into them. So the need for the private sector comes in. They are filling the gap.

But private sector institutions also charge very high fees.

Yes, many of the private institutions take advantage of the situation and charge high fees. There are very good students in rural areas but they can't afford good education today.

Students must remember that college education is the basic foundation. It's the only place they will get to learn. Once they are outside, they will have to practise what they learnt here. They will not get a chance to learn outside. So they should seize the opportunity, make the most of it.

Hello everybody.

Myself Partha and I'd like to express my opinion on the topic. My opinion says yes, there should be a big change in our education system.

I have expressed the reasons bellow.

1). First of all, the content of our syllabus, both in school level as well as college level should get updated with the changing world so that we people don't stay back dated.

2). Secondly, innovation (the thing we lack) should always be encouraged and given a place in the first row so that students can fully expressed themselves to there potential.

3). Thirdly, we should be emphasized more on English language from the early stage of study in an efficient manner so students don't face any kinds of communication problems (the most youth face today) as there will be globalization in near future.

4). In case of technical courses, we should be given access to more on practical knowledge rather than theoretical.

Well, I completed my 12th in India and went to UK for higher studies. I am doing BSc in software engineering. I found really strange things by comparing education system here with India.

1. First of all in our country there is a trend set that If you are from arts or commerce you can't go for science degrees and you just have to follow the traditional (Backward) pathways. I was a commerce student and I did some software courses and cleared some high level university exams and got admission here.

2. Here universities doesn't even change their curriculum yearly they change it according to the new technologies whatever comes (I am talking about Technical courses).

3. There courses are more concerned with practical things not theoretical (I do believe that Indian education system is more theoretical which is best for few courses though we need more practical knowledge for technical courses). And there courses are scenario based which helps students build confidence and don't lose it in any critical situation.

4. They teach what actually needed as per the companies need because they have direct links with the MNC's (Not all the Ramayana and Mahabharata).

5. The way of teaching here don't panics students instead students are excitingly and desperately want to learn because they get full time to learn according to their pace and the course is interesting though.

6. Teachers are well qualified and really really very supporting. They focus on each students and make them to work on things.

If we see our economy than our GDP rate 8% every year why it is so? due to not having proper education in rural area. Firstly government should think about rural area having proper way of education level.

From primary level, they should have teach some skill to enhance children's knowledge, some research should be there, giving practical knowledge, extracurricular activities. Firstly we should learn other countries educational level with the help of that we can improve our country talent that is one of step to improve our educational system.
