Recent studies suggest that inspite of a rapid growth in India, there is a crunch for skilled workers.
Our education system does not produce enough skilled workers. Mostly what they teach are either not practical or do not match requirement of industries.
In universities they do not teach analytical or comunication skills nor the students are strong in their domain.
Why the universities are following out dated colonial system of education?
Wasting a lot of money of the tax payers?
ITS TRUE THAT CURENT STAE OF AFFAIRS IN EDUCTON S SADENNING, TO SAY THE LIEAST,
and again, it is a fact and a pardoxical marvel that this very education system has produced milestones, stalwarts, stars, and doyens which the world recons.
and as you always say, do whatever you do and become best., the world will lay down red-carpet for you.
its actuallya cruseade to win in a meaningful manner where each and every one of us should and must participate and do whatever best we can do.
Well maybe current India residence should try to better there own country and teach there kids, because I know there are a lot of people from India taking American Jobs at least..this includes predatory school teaching for sure, St. Johns Prep in a few towns over has about 7 India immigrants teachers that took jobs from highly appointed teachers who been teaching there successfully for years...want to know why? Because these teachers SIGNED FOR LESS PAY. That's right. So maybe if that is happening here, it is happening in other places, the reason why India doesn't have skillful teachers is because all of the skilled ones are over here taking jobs from us even if they aren't even closely as qualified. The reason why i'm a little mad writing this is because this happened to one of my cousins fathers.
I think this is partly on the context. There are skilled teachers and good students in India who are doing very well globally but there is much to improve in the system so that more and more skilful persons come out. I have discussed the matter in one of my hub about unemployable youth in India.
I TOTALLY AGREE WIT WHAT YOU HAVE WROTE...OUR EDUCATION MUST COMPLETELY COMFORT OUR LIFE STYLES.THE COMMUNICATION NEED IMPROVEMENT....WE MUST BE TAUGHT COMMUNICATION, APTITUDE,MIND GAMES,COMPUTER IN SCHOOL LIFE ITSELF
You are right to some extent but its now changing. If you have some sound ideas, you should publish here as web article. Its difficult to imagine that it will change overnight but policy makers are looking for new ideas to implement. Hence go ahead and make a hub on it.
From experience I have learned every education system has its flaws, so unfortunately it is often up to the individual and the family to fill those gaps. I went to relatively good schools, but my teachers were always impressed I knew about certain historical events and books we never studied in class, which was because I took the intiative to read and answer the questions in my mind. Once I had a teacher tell me I was not capable of learning about a certain topic, so that made me want to learn and research more and more about it. By the time I was in high school I was an honor student, and I feel this was because I took the time to read and write outside of the classroom. My mom always loved books and she is to thank for part of this, but mostly it was because I loved learning so much and I always wanted to read and know more. However, I also had some really good teachers in elementary, middle school, and high school that encouraged me to read and always research things on my own. Educational systems offer the basics, but often an individual and a family must take it upon themselves to fill in the gaps when schools are not able to meet all of our needs. I wish schools could meet all of our needs, but some of best educated people in history were self-taught for the most part, so never under estimate the power of self study. Go to the library and read about every topic under the sun because the library is your friend .
I liked your comments on this-- (made me join your fan club) The quality of schools varies, and it is interesting to see that people in India have the same complaints as people in the US of A.
One advantage we have over previous generations is an ever-broadening access to information. Yes, as in earlier days it is up to the individual to make something of the resources available.
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my comments. I just learned at a very early age that I was responsible for becoming the force behind my own education when I had a teacher who wanted to hold me back. However, most of my teachers were great and nurturing, but this experience taught me that I could put my mind to anything and accomplish all of my educational goals.
Yes, there are flaws in education system, but we have to rectify it. It should be continualy updated, suits to requirements of the people. it is good to go to library, but that is not enough. it is important to have practical training embedded with school or college education.
I agree. What education gives us are the theories, which have very little practical application to most jobs, and the only profession that would benefit from this kind of knowledge are the distributors, aka teachers. The basic ingredients to success are a strong level motivation, great inter-personal skills, and a good foundation in reading and math. I suppose school tries to foster these by mixing people of similar age groups together and with the GPA competition factor, but these skills should be the primary development factors. Perhaps schools should also incorporate "adapt a rich and successful person as your uncle" workshops, for networking is vital to success as well.
I do not believe much in school/college systems. Plenty of tax payers money is wasted there.
If it is private, the earners are the owners of the institutes.
I had never been into a college but a successful business owner.
The qualities u specified r required for a business and for a family and social life too.
Education depends on the person and how they learn. Most schools (at least when I was in school) are focused more-so on visual and auditory learning. Most people seem to learn best when utilizing multiple senses; including tactile (tangible.) Either schools need to realize this and engage students in a more multi-sensory learning environment, or we all just need to let the students sit at home and learn on their computers.
i agree what some saying here. i think the school should follow also what are the demands of the other country so you can be able to compete globally. and also i would like to say that learning is very important in the process we dont depend it in school but let try to discover in our own way too.

What steps do you think we should take to improve our education system?I'd like to see more courses in our high schools that embrace the arts and the humanities, and performance-based assessments as opposed to "teaching to the test."

With the entertainment and sport industries making multimillions of dollars each year and the education industry losing funding and shutting down programs and laying off teachers, should the education of our children be privatized? City budgets are no longer able to provide adequate funding for...

Is the public education system in the US really broken?Given that we're going broke, I suppose its going to get tougher to maintain standards.

It occurs to me that, having studied the origins of the School system, as opposed to early education through the Trivium (Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric) and Quadrivium (Math, Geometry, Music, and Astronomy), the standards and practices of learning are far off from their more enlightening roots of...

It perplexes me that despite the advent of the Internet and the quickness with which information can travel nowadays, so many young people are still so woefully ignorant of the issues that affect our society. Mainly, the ignorance of politics and the workings of our government is what I'm concerned...

It didn't really surprised me why the U.S. was not even in the Top 10 for the best educational system in the world according to the most recent survey. There's a real problem in the system of education in the U.S. and it's a shame that those politicians in Washington are not doing much to rectify...
