Education has been a major problem in our country since so long. From last 20-30 years and now, many things have been changed, like, nowadays listening that a student has scored 90% is very common, but still students did not get admission into their choice of colleges, which is why, many students end up harming themselves physically or mentally. Fact is that nowadays student study only to score good and show it to the people around them, but what matters is the knowledge that one has. Good thing nowadays is that students have ample number of fields to choose from for their future. Here are a few minor changes that should definitely be done in the Indian Education System. Funny thing is that even Rabindranath Tagore wrote various articles about changes that need to be done in the Indian Education System, but sadly only few of them have been done, rest are still just like that.
Focus on skills
Students focus on cramming the information through which they can easily score good, but once the exams are over, there’s nothing left with them. Which is why, it is important to learn the skills and gain knowledge rather than cramming it.
Appreciate creativity and innovation
Nowadays as there are many opportunities and fields open for students, the system needs to appreciate each and every talent and bring them out with creativity and innovation in the outside world.
Good things are always taught to the students. But students should also be familiarised with the reality regarding what’s happening in the world and how to cope up with it. For eg, physical violence in childhood is a sensitive topic which children might not share easily with anybody, but the safety measures and steps should be taught to them.
Get interested people to teach
There are many teachers who just teach students for their selfish motives, for eg, earning. They know they’ll paid even if the students do not study, which is why they never pay good attention on students and their studies. A teacher must be keen to educate their children well rather than running away from them.
Digital Teaching and Learning
In this new digital world, children understand the things told to them digitally, books and papers are good, but students nowadays can be taught using digital products in various innovative and creative manners. Also, basic IT knowledge should also be given to the students.
Every child has different learning capabilities
Some children adapt new things real fast and some don’t. Allow them to take their time and learn accordingly. Do not pressurize them.
These are few points which we believe should be taken care of in the Indian Education System, these changes need to be done as soon as possible to educate India properly and grow it.
