This country needs a massive overhaul in its education system


I was board topper of my state. Worked as a high profile techie in a leading startup. Traveled through out the country.

My conclusion is that this country's education system has very little to offer, extremely poor output of investing 20 years a lot of money and the expectation it builds.

The need is to treat under grad as a basic building block and not the end of the world. Also there is a need to teach people that not everything is hierarchical (the common line post 10th boards- science stream>commerce>arts) rather enjoy learning the subject and excelling. Study to learn, marks will follow should be the motto taught to students.

This is also the flaw of current ecosystem where grads were grabbing high paying jobs with half learned people in startups.

In IITK campus half of the grads think that this is the end of their learning curve and it is a very bad sign.

Job is the end of education for most. This is such a regressive thought, education never stops. We mock here is someone is 28 and doing Phd. The whole mindset shift is required.

The higher level institutions need autonomy and they need to work without any political interference. We need to separate out universities , IITs, IIMs from ministry and there should be a separate body looking after them without any interference from politics. Also right now India is lacking in research work and we are not investing in it. For this government to incentivize universities, people and allocate more money.

At the intermediate level, there is a problem of high drop-outs. One of the reasons cited is the inability of the students to find any economic value in the curriculum. In many tribal areas, students are not even able to relate to the language of the teachers from the urban areas. School development plans need to factor in tailoring the common curriculum in the local context to keep students interested. At the same time more thought needs to go in to prepare the students for future employment rather than for basic literacy.

India has come a long way and has almost achieved 100% enrolment at primary level. However, there are many areas of concerns including lack of infrastructure, poor ecucational outcomes,high dropout rates esp in girls, lack of computer literacy, malnutrition among students, sports and overall development and . The new education policy needs to focus on these areas.It is important to provide nutritional help and sport infrastructure for healthy development of body and mind.

The Educational standard of a country is both a growth propeller and a tangible result of greater human development. The biggest priority affecting the education sector which needs urgent attention is the insufficient public expenditure on education. While, the National Education Policies have mandated a spending of 6% of the GDP on education, the figure has never gone beyond 4.2%. Unless, education is accorded the primacy it deserves through

Not against more capital allocation to education, in fact would welcome it


But to think that money would be the silver bullet is to miss the core of the problem


The issue is of building right linkages across education levels and the workplace, defining the role of state ( both as provider and regulator ), attitudes of society and the role of teachers. Capital is a strong enabler of thus but would not be useful on its own

Can't agree more. This system fails at 2 levels


1. it pushes more people down than the ones it is able to uplift to a better life. The system fails a large majority of people

2. Even the one's who apparently succeed in cracking the code, are bereft of life skills and are often in for a shock later in life.
