India has long been crippled with the problem of imparting quality education to its students and this has resulted in a low quality of workforce. Although India has one of the brightest students in the world and one of the best colleges but still India has failed to innovate and provide breakthrough theories in the modern era. Students from India go for masters at foreign universities and end up with amazing innovations. Why then, it can’t happen in India? A closer analysis reveals some basic problems both at the government level and at personal level. Let’s have a look at them.
Lack of Infrastructure and teachers
There is a basic lack of infrastructure at the primary level and a lack of quality teachers as well. This is the first step that needs to be addressed by the government. More incentives should be provided to the teachers and there should be a strict test to induct them in the teaching department
More application skills
Indian students are very good at theory but fail to perform in real life practical scenario. There should be more focus on application and practical knowledge rather than theory. This needs to be addressed by state boards, CBSE and ICSE.
Free to choose subjects
There should be an option to choose the subjects at their graduation level. A concept of Majors and Minors subjects should be made mandatory. A student should be allowed to change his/her specialization any time they feel like throughout their graduation/under graduation level.
Respect to teaching profession
India, in the recent times has not paid much attention to teaching as a profession. People opt for teaching because they could not get a corporate or government job. This mind set needs to change and government incentives for teachers could help attract more talent in the teaching profession.
Don’t study to get a job
The main problem with India is its ever growing population and limited jobs. This has forced the students to study only because there is a job waiting after their degree, and in the process they forget to learn and end up losing their creativity. This also needs to be addressed by the Industry in twisting their recruitment requirement from a mechanised process to more creative and innovative approach.
