“The Indian system of education system is too rigid

And traditional to be useful and meaningful

In the changing scenario”

        India has been the major centre of learning since ancient times. Nalanda was well known the world over. The Indian system of education passed through different stages. Starting from the vedic age, Brahmic age, Bhudhist age, Muslim period, British period, Modern era, Education commission, National education policy, Revised education policy, Elementary education, Adult education, Distance education, Education for women.

       Education is one of the most important drivers of India’s social and economic development. Higher level of literacy lead greater economic output higher employment levels, better health, better social structure and higher marks along a number other development indicators. More specifically educatin the girls and women has been showing to result in rapid improvements in family planning, nutrition, health and income and is seen as one of the best tools for promoting social and economic development.

       The 1986 National Policy on Education(NPE) first emphasized compulsory elementary education as a national priority. Yet despite a huge expansion in India’s formal education system in the last few decades, there are millions of children out of school in the age group 6-14 or nearly 25 percent of child population on the elementary age group. The key challenges to education are:

Reachable school  –The for children not going to school are to do with the physical access. In several parts of the country especially in small, remote places, children still do not have access to schooling facilities and thus remain out of school. Seasonal migration of families in search of work for several months every year is another reason, which deprives children the chance to go to school, in addition the sizeable children live in the villages where formal school exist, but due to social reasons such as caste and gender they are either not allowed to go to school or not given proper treatment in the school.

Policitical influence: The politicians should not goverm the Indian system of education. Education becomes meaningless with the influence of politics in this field. A freehand should be given for the up gradation of education.

Job oriented Education: Teaching in the Indian school is not only traditional but also meaningless in the changing scenario as it has still to bring job oriented syllabus so that when they come out of the school, when  they come out of this field they do not find themselves in dismay. The system should teach them to earn their bread and butter
