Are we not also responsible for rote learning?Rote learning is the bane of Indian school education and even college education. For example, at the undergraduate level, it is common for students to merely mug up every single answer to "model "questions in subjects such as history and vomit the same in the examination. This is absurd.
We are also encouraging all this. This is because we want our children to be part of the rat race and score well. The Rasipuram schools in Namakkal District of Tamil Nadu are so famous for this torture. The students become experts in mugging up every single lesson.
What can be done to stop this? Are some creative experiments on at the school level? If Members know of any such efforts, please share them. It will be nice to know of them.
