Looking at the vast population of the country, it is very difficult to provide education to all as the demography is highly varied. I feel that Indian education is lot better than many developed countries like US and countries of Europe.
Obama himself is concerned about the poor education system in the US and has said that they need to improve their education system, else Indians will eat away their jobs. This shows the quality of education in India.
To cite one more example, if anyone comes to India from a Western country and takes admission in primary class or upto say class 8th - 9th, he will have to write an exam to prove that his level is same as the students of class 8th or 9tth in India. There has been incidents that shows the level of Indian students. This is due to the fact that kids in Western countries are given 'fun education' where as in India there is more of 'knowledge based education'. This shows that Indian education is appreciable.
But as we come to the higher education say 10th - 12th, the quality falls. In fact, the education system is fine, but the way of implementing it is wrong. There are lack of laboratories, students bunk practical sessions feeling it useless, inexperienced teachers and so on.
All these together form a big problem especially in small cities. There are many state boards which simply focus on mugging up the things.
The problems are always these, but we need to find a solution.
Can the new reforms in the education sector by Mr Kapil Sibbal lead to a brighter way of education??
