In ancient days Gurukul type education is there. That system is very good and that system is producing a matured citizen whereas in this system we are getting academically qualified citizen. The government has to take up this point very seriously and see that a good system will be in place. I think this is the need of the hour.
Unfortunately the present system is more academic then skill based. Though there are some technical courses or diplomas but they are truly not integrated in the main course education.
Our education has created lot of post graduates in science and engineering and also PhD in various areas. We have not been able to amalgamate them in our job patterns.
Probably this requires a lot of overhauling in our education system so that only few persons having aptitude should go for research projects while the mediocre ones should be stopping their education at integrated diploma or degree level.
A person highly educated by default aspires for a higher position which is not practically possible.

The extra circular activity would be a mandatory keyboard class or a karate class. Little attention is given to social and moral responsibilities at a young mouldable age. What parents would want out of the education system is that a framework that makes the children mature into young responsible adults with a high standard of honesty, integrity, and accountability; have a decent chance of getting into a career of their choice, to be able to shoulder the responsibility of raising a family ( not taking it as a burden) and to be able to care for their elderly parents.
