Good morning to everyone present here. Today I am going to speak on the topic “Education system in India”. Education is an important aspect which plays a vital role in our day to day life. People need an excellent education to survive in this competitive world. Education is a part & parcel of life, which is a must for leading a happy life.
The Indian education system is quite an old system which is reforming slowly. It produces many brilliant minds every year. India has produced many famous mathematicians, doctors, astronomers, writers, engineers, lawyers, entrepreneurs & many more other professionals.
They have already proved their knowledge in many fields throughout the world. However, with the advancement in technology, we need to understand the need for replacing our old education system.
Let me throw some light on the current scenario in India. The conventional education system needs to be blamed, which lacks reforms. There many reasons due to which it is not prospering with time—weak grading system which judges the intelligence of the child on just a piece of paper.
This is unfair as a single examination determines the whole career of the student. Due to the system children are more interested in fetching marks in examination instead of their overall development.
It also encourages various unethical practices like cheating in exams. Mugging up subjects without understanding the concept is one of the outcomes of this type of education system. Examinations appear to be a burden on the students. Education must be like exploring things instead of focusing on getting marks.
The Indian education system focuses more on theory instead of giving practical experiences. Classroom teaching also follows the older method of teaching, which includes only books instead of any exciting tools available. It is getting boring day by day for the younger generation.
There is very restricted use of Computer Assisted techniques. Online mode of education in India is underdeveloped. Other social issues which Indian education system is facing are corruption, lack of awareness, poverty which is leading to withdrawal from education at a very early age from the countryside.
Now the question arises how the system can be improved? Unnecessary burdens must not be given to students. They must be involved in intensive learning programs instead of boring lectures. They must be judged based on their overall development instead of marks in the examination.
Improvement in classroom teaching with proper training to the teachers is a must which must be included in the system as soon as possible. Computer Assisted education must be imparted in all the schools all over India.
Physical activities, yoga, art, singing, dancing, drama & many more must be given importance as any other subject as people are also adopting these as their professional career in future.
More practical experiences with skill development must be incorporated into the education system. Many policies have been already reformed by our government to overcome the drawbacks on the current system. So the beginning is already here, but we have a long way to go.
In a developing country like India, Education is one of the fundamental right of all the citizens with superior quality of education. It will drive us in the path of success & economic growth. The Indian education system must be reformed to so that students get better opportunities to learn & shine in future.
If we can provide a better education, we will gift ourselves a better future too. I will end my speech with a famous quote.
“Turn one school from a robot factory into a cradle of heroes, and the very face of education on earth will change.”
Have a beautiful day.
