Yes, nowadays old education system is being run in schools and colleges throughout the country.

I have seen that schools are giving unnecessary hone work like painting, making projects of big issues for primary classes students which they don't know how to make and even school doesn't brief them. This work is being done by parents not by students which is NO use for students.

Students should be given practical knowledge which is of their use in life. Like practical knowledge of solving day-to-day problems. Bookings of tickets. Money transactions. Online learning uses and limitations of social media. Parents should permit their children to tackle the problems and find the solutions rather than giving unnecessary burdens for scoring high marks in the class.

Yes, we need to change our education system because the current one is totally based on rote learning and is not fit for twenty-first century circumstances.

Yes, the present education system should be changed, because, education is the backbone and the future of our future generation. Today's education system totally focused on the exam and there is competition between the students for getting higher marks. It is not focused on all over-development and also does not fulfil the present-day need. In my mind there are some basic questions related to the present education system:
1. Is fulfil the purpose?
2. In spite of a number of efforts of Education policies and commissions, is it giving the right directions to the students and teachers?
3. Is it fulfilled the objectives of 21st century and Democratic Citizenship?

In the light of above questions following are my suggestions for improvement: 1. Syllabus should be bassed on the knowledge of practical life, so the students can learn and know about health, descipline, character formation, moral values, citizenship rights and duties and day to day life activities like the knowledge of bank, post office, telegram, Railway, Govt. Rules and regulations etc. Hope, the National Education Policy 2020 will change a lot and can bring the the changes needed.

The last change that took place in the Indian education system was in 2020 and before that in 1986. But it takes many years to implement the new education system thoroughly. I Agree with one comment that nowadays, more parents are not trying to understand their children. Whenever their child is lacking in anything the only solution they have is to join a Coaching.

They never let him/her solve it by himself/herself. They should know that every child is special in himself. Rather than focusing on marks, they should force him to solve any problem that comes to him by himself. They should not let their child be dependent on coaching institutions which itself make money except some institutions. Nd I strongly recommended that after the 10th standard, it should make compulsory for a student to do at least one internship of his/her choice. By this, he/she will practice in life. And their concepts towards life will be logical.

Yes, I think that in our education system, there should be no reservations on the basis of categories. Every student should get equal opportunities in the future. Because maybe a student with more knowledge than the sc/st student (who get a job) didn't get a job or is jobless. Due to this reason, a talented student may choose an alternative path for his career.

And our country will grow slow due to a lack of talent.

Thank you.

I think it should be definitely changed. There are lots of reasons behind it In almost colleges, there is the same boring old syllabus which carries many years. Our.

The education system doesn't do any changes to the syllabus that's the reason students do not get modern knowledge apart from the syllabus. We focus on the exams not on what students should learn. All the college systems focused on attendance there is no importance of students learning whether the students are understanding or not. I think our education system should focus on practical and modern learning and also on the student's skills by organising such programs in schools and colleges which make Students more practical and aware of their dreams.

In my opinion, some of the changes should be followed in the present education system is;

Free education for all the people in India without fail.
Salaries for private school teachers are provided by the government.
No ranking system.
No grading for students like vegetables and fruits.
The overall development is required for every student not only IIT.

Yes, I even think education in today's time has become worsen children are just forced to learn for exams because they have told to get good marks though they don't understand either they like the subject or even when they don't even know the concept of that subject they are just told to mug up in fact our education system should be interesting practical with all realistic performance rather than just mugging up.

Yes, we totally should. In India, the education system mainly focuses on the memory or learning power of the student, which tbh is not fair because everyone is not the same, everyone has their own capability and skills, so instead of just focusing on the learning power the system should focus more on the overall development of the student and help them find their true skills and support them so that they don't judge themselves on the basis of marks and can do what they actually love and enjoy.

No, this education system was developed purposely by Britishers to spoil Indians and to make them slaves to their system and only for their benefits mystic services did they make this. Read history guys you will get to know. It is around 200 years old now.

They destroyed the Indian Gurukul education system was the backbone of India and they introduced this British Education system by Lord Macaulay, you can even google if you don't believe me.

"I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation".
