According to my opinion, the govt should invest more money for primary and secondary education, since every child doesn't choose to be an IITian. Therefore I believe it would be an injustice done to other children in future, cause more focus will be on developing IITs and IIMs. Also, I think that government should set-up money for primary and secondary education because it is builds the base for knowledge which helps a student in whichever field he/she chooses in future. If more IITs and IIMs are set-up and primary and secondary education are not focused then I think the fundamental basics will be lacked by the students, even for the ones who dream to be in IITs and IIMs.

Enough IIT's and IIM's.

Now the government should concentrate more of primary and secondary education I want to ask the government how many students of IIM's and IIT's got admitted who did their primary education from government schools?

The answer will definitely be less than 10% because the primary and secondary schooling of government schools are worthless. They don't have enough qualified teachers to teach the students, now no person from middle class family or rich family admit their children to government school why because of lack of qualified teachers and facilities, no quality education is provided to the students and therefore no poor can be an IItian or IImian just because of such condition of government schools.

This is Ajay. In my point of view, if building base is strong enough then that building stable over his whole life. Similarly if primary & secondary education is of quality then one can shine in IIM/IITs (OR) one can grow in his business or any other job/in any of the field.

You know what, when you are at door step of the MNCs for job, your IIT/IIM knowledge will help you to crack it. It will take too much time to change the system right from the root. So if we have little sense then we should start it from reverse. From the last level of education. So that we can produce more intelligent people. Then they will automatically help the nation by making their children smarter. Apart from that, till primary I would say that no SERIOUS education required. "just play my child it is your right age. Don't run for rank now." so just basic knowledge will be enough. And the right time to shine is in the IIT/IIM. They will make you knowledgeable.

According to my opinion, the basic root level of education should be improved first. Is it useful that we improve higher education but basic education suffers? The condition of education in Indian government school is under crisis because neither the quality of education is adequate nor teaching level of teachers is adequate. Moreover, there is great shortage of good teachers in our country. Government invests only 10% part in education but investing more in improving FDI, which is not sufficient. Therefore, we must work for basic elementary education. I can give you an example of my 10th class student studying in government school. He even does not know spellings of teacher and can not do simple elementary addition and multiplication. It is very serious matter of concern.

Hi friends,

Its been nice to hear all your opinions about this topic.

Well personally in my opinion as because as because both are important issues there comes the question of priority. And hence first cones the Basic education which we get from our primary and secondary schools level education. And hence the government should not only increase the number of primary and secondary schools but should also improve the quality of education in this schools especially the government schools. Second comes the IITs and IIMs because if a student's basic is clear then no need for him to study in some additional institutes to get chance in IITs and IIMs. If also he could not make it to IITs he'll will surely get a good college and can explore his potential as because he has got his basics clear and right knowledge.

Thank you.

In my opinion, it is more important to focus on basic primary education. In files, facts and figures government may have already invested a lot for this purpose but when we look into real life all this has ended up in black money. The quality of education and the facilities in primary schools is not how it is supposed to be. And when the future of the country doesn't have quality education how will they make it up to IIT or IIM. We all know the entrance to such esteemed institutions is very tough then it is obvious that only those students can be there who are qualified for reaching there but how can they reach there if their base is not strong. Thus it is an important aspect to first improvise the primary education and then think for subsidised IIT's or IIM's.

In my opinion, they spend more on primary & secondary education for the quality education so that it will reflect on all the sectors like engineering, medical, management, etc.

The government should invest money in primary and secondary education and if it is also possible, should provide higher education for free till master degree in traditional courses like B.A, B.Sc etc. Then there would be no need to increase for IITs and IIMs.

In my opinion, they should open more IITs and IIMs because every year around 14 lakhs students applies for 20, 000 seats. The proportion of seats to the number of applicants is too small. Opening up more IITs and IIMs will also reduce the number of students applying to foreign universities for admitting. It will reduce the burden of large fees which the students are forced to pay in foreign universities.
