Dire Need For A Change Of Syllabus For – ‘The Indian Education System’

Education, as we all know is vital, for the growth of every individual and empowerment in the growth of a nation. Is this critical need, given to all the students in a satisfactory manner? Ironically, the answer is No. The teachers, the management, and the strategy do not satisfy the youth. The quality in education is still a dream in our nation. Let me throw some light on the issues of our Indian education system and suggest some solutions.

According to the mindset of any stereotypical Indian, he wishes to study in a private school, get a graduation degree, get a decent job that pays them six figures every month and he gets married, again he brings up his child in the same way. Does it build the persona of an individual? It is a grim scenario, which every Indian is forced to follow such a system.

There is no equality in education. Not all people can be easily admitted to CBSE or International Schools, because for an Indian to study, he must be able to pay the fees and nothing else matters. The motto of Edvizo is to improve the entire education system and the economically lagging people are offered with scholarships and EMI schemes. By this, irrespective of their positions everyone can get the equal education.

Teachers are the backbone of any educational institution. Only a teacher can change the direction of a society and no other profession influences the society much more. But, the teachers lag in good teaching skills and they do not equip themselves with recent trends in their domain. And also, all the coaching centers are commercialized and many are fake. Edvizo offers to get the information about the institutions from home and hands-on-training in programming can be taken from the home that saves time in this busy world.

When a student is educated he must acquire knowledge, skills, and creativity. Acquiring skills is more important because writing how to build a database is easy but implementing it in the real world is the main challenge. The creativity of storytelling in childhood may pave way for them to design a product in the future. They lag in out of box thinking. Students must learn more apart from their books and for every concept, they learn they must ask a why? to themselves.

Recent research at ‘The Association of Accounting Technicians’, London has revealed that there is a large contradictory review on University and more importantly where a degree can lead, among the school leaving students. The students do not have a clear picture of what they need to learn. As parents are used to some legacy courses, the institutions also do not add the number of courses. Research is never considered when one studies. Edvizo helps one to choose their right career path, and guidelines are given by experts from IITs, IIMs, AIIMs and more.

Dogmatism among teaching faculties makes one to do the same work every day. The students are forced and trained to write the same answers that are memorized by them from books. This may help them get good marks in their board exams but it does not enrich any knowledge in one. Grades never measure one’s Intelligence. Teachers must impart different strategies in teaching the students. They do consider that the practical knowledge is priceless for students.

Technology is into and within every aspect of one’s life. As technology advances the education must also get advanced with it. Programming, simulating and virtualizing of what we have learned is very simple today. But still, the students are forced to learn their MCQs and Q/A. Rote learning is still followed by at most all students and in colleges too.

Students must be given the freedom to choose their course of study. For example, chemistry may work out good for a boy’s dad and he may be a Chemical Engineer, but it is not necessary that the boy should also pursue the same. The boy may love English, History, Music and more. Students must choose their path with the passion. It is not that everyone should walk on the same path. Every individual can also take the road less traveled, or they can make their own path!
