“The value system of a country comes from the educational system”
Education has been a problem in our country and lack of it has been blamed for all sorts of evil for hundreds of years. Even Rabindra nath Tagore wrote lengthy articles about how Indian education system needs to change. Funny thing is that from the colonial times, few things have changed. We have established IITs, IIMs, law schools and other institutions of excellence; students now routinely score 90% marks so that even students with 90+ percentages find it difficult to get into the colleges of their choice; but we do more of the same old stuff.
Creating many educational institutions is not going to solve the crisis of education in India. And a crisis it is – we are in a country where people are spending their parent’s life savings and borrowed money on education – and even then not getting standard education, and struggling to find employment of their choice. Millions of students are victims of an unrealistic, pointless, mindless rat race. The mind numbing competition and rote learning do not only crush the creativity and originality of millions of Indian students every year; it also drives brilliant students to commit suicide.
We Consumer Rights Organisation (CRO) in 2016 started a revolution “Against the Corrupted Education System in India, it evolved from Andhra Pradesh and spread out like wild fire all over India.
93% schools are not following the rules and regulations, 87% schools are getting state Affiliation by producing fake / false / managed documents, 54% schools are following the CBSE syllabus without the CBSE affiliation, 74% Schools are selling the Books, uniforms and other Stationeries in their premise without any permission from the concern government. Many Business Schools, Medical Colleges, Engineering Colleges and schools are owned by the politicians who in the garb of running educational institutions acquire vast expanse of lands.
Our education system is still a colonial education system geared towards generating babus and pen-pushers under the newly acquired skin of modernity. We may have the most number of engineering graduates in the world, but that certainly has not translated into much technological innovation here. Rather, we are busy running the call centers of the rest of the world – that is where our engineering skills end.
The goal of our new education system should be to create entrepreneurs, innovators, artists, scientists, thinkers and writers who can establish the foundation of knowledge based economy rather than the low-quality service provider nation that we are turning into.
“And just because you have colleges and universities
Doesn’t mean you have education.”
We Consumer Rights Organisation demand the Government of India that the corruption and business should be completely out of Education System, the Education System should be free from the Political leaders and the business mafias that’s when education will finds its meaning and will brighten the future of India.
