India's population is very high and the competition for everything here is very high. So the students have to do a lot of work for excelling in their education. The parents want their children to be the first in all aspects. This quality of the parents is being encashed by the corporate school management. Otherwise, IIT preparation from 6th class is ridiculous.
I am also of the opinion that the stress level of the children in the form of homework and big syllabus should come down. The students should not feel that education is a duty. They should learn the subject for learning the subject but not for passing the examination. I don't know whether the system in other countries may help in these aspects.
In our country many schools are in rural and remote environment. Whether we will be able to provide such changes in those places is an important question.
Till then the existing system has to continue.
Knowledge is power.
Since beginning, kids are made to work like machines. They are under strict routine with more concentration on studies and less on playing and other activities. The main thing that has to be developed in kinds is the longing for knowing things. Instead, at an early age we are pushing them to learn things according to a particular syllabus without knowing their aptitude. I feel we need an overhaul of the education system.
