Our present education system

I strongly feel that our present education system can be changed to suit to nations like India where most of the citizens are branded as illiterates under this system of education. even after independence we are following the same old British Education system which benefits a section of our citizens, not everyone. Our ancient education system was good enough to educate all villagers because of the methodology. Our ancestors followed a method called 'home school method' and they educated the villagers through song, drama, yakshagana, dances, burrakathas, harikathas and the like. In spite of our modern life styles and knowledge, we are still stuck with the old English Academic Education system which is good for a few in nations like ours. Experts must think about this and encourage 'Home school movement'. I have started a Telugu comedy movie on this subject and waiting to release in all languages of the world. Those interested can join in Eretz Ephraim Pictures family.
