Education system in India

According to my view, Education system in India is provided by public and private sectors with controlling and funding by using three levels ; state, central and local.The government also provide free and quality education for children who among 6-15 years of age.In india we have some policies issued by the government but that policies are not even followed by any institue or school.

The indian government takecares of children who are not even to pay fees ,then the govt. provides a free education scheme to the children who are not able to pay fees. The government also gives fee reambassment option to children who have low financial background.

But in india the education system was not good when compare to other countries, so that the students belongs to india are preferred to go to abroad for completing their higher studies, there are some drawbacks in education system and also have solutions for those problems

Drawbacks :-

Present education system focuses more on scores rather than knowledge.
It’s having 90%theoretical subjects. Even remaining 10% practical subjects are of limited experiments and of expected output.
There is no scope for students to do experiments on their own.
Some colleges are not conducting practicals. Instead, they are giving full marks and allotting that time to mug uptheoretical subjects.
In the end, students are coming out of schools and colleges only having bookish knowledge in the mind as the method of learning doesn’t connect to reality.
There is so much meaningless pressure on students because of the too much competitive spirit in between private institutions.
Children in school are not being guided well about careers. They hardly know about what the options available in career except doctors and engineers. Because of that they are takingcourses of their parent’s choice (mostly) after coming out of schools. They even don’t know what career options available with that course.
Many schools are not concentrating on extra curricular activities. This may lead to the false assumption in children that only education is important in life.
Some teachers are giving marks based on the no. of papers rather than the content. Thereby students will try to fill papers instead of focusing on to write the actual answer.
There are some cases that students are giving up their lives as they are unable to cope up with too much pressure laid on them by private schools and colleges.

Solutions :-

Teachers must say the purpose of education to the children of school level.
Teachers must encourage the children to understand the concept and to write it in their own words in exam.
Every theoretical subject must have practicals if possible.
Communication skills and reasoning must be a subject from school level.
There must be seminars and projects from schooling to make students understand the subjects rather than mugging up.
Personality development classes and extra curricular activities must becompulsory.
Jobs should be provided based on knowledge rather than percentages.
In practical examinations, marks should be given for the process rather than output.
The method of teaching and lessons in subjects must be modified. They must be in a way to understand real world.
Career guidance must be there in schooling.

Conclusion :-
Govt. must concentrate on modifying the education system to give wonderful life for students. There is a role of educational institutions too to improve the method of teaching. A good education system leads to a good society.
