The main difference that I have observed throughout my studying years at school and college is that Indian education system is all about just gaining bookish knowledge.
In India a student gets to know about practical knowledge when his/her all graduation and degree completes and he/she begins to start a job or buisness.This bookish knowledge system makes a student so confused that he/she can't decide a field to choose for their future even after having so many degrees and diploma.
While in foreign countries the education syatem does not bring any kind of confusion in the childs mind about what career the student is opting instead it is totally a students choice what he/she is opting.
And also these students have practical knowledge also as they start doing part time jobs side by side for earning pocket money with their education which makes them knowledgble about other fields also where they have done these part time jobs.
Wheras in India you will rarely find student doing part time jobs especially kids from good background they solely depend upon their schools and tutions whatever the kind of education and subjects they are being taught.

In Indian - education system, much pressure is being given to refer to as many books as the students would like to gain knowledge. It is anticipated that in that way, pupil would get maximum knowledge. Such practice would continue till one finishes one's education.
The practical aspect of the science and even in the Psycoligical papers are introduced at a very late stage. So such trend does not prove to be benificial for the pupil.
In contrast to our pattern, in foreign countries, the lessons are backed with practical sessions so that the recipient of education does understand the utility of the education. In the foreign countries, the pupil are allowed to take up any job while studying a particular course. In that way, they raise finance to support themselves while studying a particular course. Such arrangement of education equips the pupils to avail of practical knowledge apart from the theoretical one.
