Thoughts on Education system of our country
The Education system should be more concentrated on quality education and education for all . As we now see most of the schools and colleges fees structure is not in the range of common man. Education should be affordable which is not the case now. Teaching also should be seen a good profession, if there are no good Teachers then education system will not be in good position. The education should always be updated as per the current gloabl scenarios and should be more skill based and looking at the potential of the students
