10 drawbacks of Education Structure in India

In a country like India where there are many uneducated people, it is an unfortunate fact that even educated people are not sane enough to recognize the fissures in the Education system. India’s education paradigm requires several notable changes.  Well, it is a matter of dismay that those changes have still not been inculcated and henceforth the situation is deteriorating year by year. So here are 10 flaws about the Education Structure of India that are worth pondering upon:


1. Realize The Purpose Of Education

Reportedly, India has the largest number of engineering graduates in the world. However, the number of people who actually possess the skill set to innovate and develop is very less. This has to change. We need to design the education system in such a way that it encourages skill development and innovation.


2. Corruption In Admissions

Here we are talking about students who get admitted in colleges by paying the so-called ‘donations’. In other words, it is nothing but bribing the college and securing a seat. If it is not through talent that students get enrolled in professional colleges, then definitely we are not encouraging the correct talent.


3. Impersonalized Education

Like all five finger are not the same, similarly, all the students will definitely not have the same understanding levels. Thus, the approach followed in teaching them should also not be the same. We need to find personalized ways of teaching children and educating them.


4. More Focus On Marks


Just because a student is a first grader in school or college, it doesn’t mean he or she is going to excel in his or her life. It is high time we realize that marks are just a part of the curriculum and do not decide a candidate’s intelligence level.


5. Usage Of Technology

In the current scenario where almost every house has smartphone users, it is necessary to make use of technology to deliver education to students. It makes learning an easy and simple process when appropriate technology is used.


6. Away From Practical Application

Whatever is being taught in schools and colleges today is taught with a theoretical approach where everything is in words with no demonstrations. This approach has to move towards practicality where things are done and learned.


7. Reservation System

This is the most debated topic when it comes to education in India. Reservations remain healthy only to certain extent. Non-reserved candidates though talented are not getting opportunities to prove themselves because of the improper implementation of the reservation system.


8. Unchanged Syllabus

Chapters in the textbooks and reference books still remain the same as they were in the last decade. It is important to update the syllabus from time to time in order to make the students aware of relevant things.


9. No Focus On Overall development

Mugging up things and writing them in the examinations simply doesn’t develop one’s mind. It is important to participate in all kinds of activities for overall development of an individual.


10. Minimum Subject Choices

When it comes to any stream like medicine, law, engineering or arts the students get to choose from a limited number of options when compared to syllabi in other countries. This certainly needs to change to improve the exposure of students in multiple subjects.

Here is what we feel should be changed in our present education system. Please share your ideas and let us know what else you think should be altered in our system.
