Thoughts on Education system of our country
India is the developing country. I feel we should have world class education system in place wherein the world should look at us and follow our education systems in their country. There is too much theoretical subjects in our education systems this should parallelly be complimented by practicals and hand on training
Efforts to expand enrolment must be accompanied by policies to enhance educational quality at all levels, in formal and in non-formal settings. We have to work on an 'access to success' continuum by promoting policies to ensure that excluded children get into school coupled with programmes and practices that ensure they succeed there. there must be easy process involving addressing and responding to the diverse needs of students
