The Indian education system

In other words, my pet peeve! I don’t want to rant – I will let this article do the talking and maybe follow up with a post later!

What do you think the Indian education sector needs to become world class? For starters better leadership-Arjun Singh and his ilk better realize that our competitive advantage will rapidly erode if we do not invest in the right areas! Get good people to teach, don’t have ten year old curricula. Invest in research and infrastructure. Reform the exam system (very important)… Dang I am ranting – stop. So, what do you think?

    I hear ya. There’s been a helluva lotta people ranting about this, but then like always, nothing’s ever gonna be done about it. Personally i’ve got a problem with the curricula which like you said is way too old. It puts us light years behind whats going on outside, that means we’re behind even from a research point of view. A common problem for us pharmacists. There are a few individuals doing a lot of good work research-wise but they dont have enough help. Us students just don’t have the expertise to assist them.

    Aye. But, there is free knowledge on the internet. Although it cannot replace a good teacher, there is loads of stuff that you can teach yourself. Its out there — Go, get it!

    strengthen the ITI’s. get more part timers into teaching to cut on load.
    strengthen the state school system. orient them towards the KV’s.
