The ‘National Policy on Education’ was framed in 1986 and was amended in 1992. Since then there were no major changes take place in the Indian education system. Indian education system is not totally controlled by central government it is controlled by three different organization i.e. central govt. state govt. and some privet sector organization. There are both positive and negative sides of our current education system and there is an increasing demand to take new steps. From the year 2014, there are some changes take place and new changes are coming in every year but the basic philosophy is yet similar.
Indian Education system is one of the most important topics for Group Discussion. There are many sectors in the Indian education system on which a GD can be conducted but today we are going to discuss Present Education System in India is it perfect or we need to bring changes? So let’s start the GD and conclude it.
- Indian education system is perfect and there is no need for any changes right now because there are various positive sectors in Indian education system some of them are as follow:
- Annual system: in the Indian education system there is an annual and semester course duration are present which helps everyone including slow learner to get sufficient time to cover all the syllabus.
- Basic knowledge: most if the syllabus in school and colleges are designed on the basic principal. Which makes learning easy and adaptable.
- Competitive spirit: Indian education system encourage competitive spirit among students. Competition teaches students how to harvest their full potential.
- Students go through many exams in their learning years. It teaches to analyses our strengths and weaknesses consistently.
- Every examination has a certification after completion of the exam which helps when you’re searching for a job.
Drawbacks of the Indian Education system:-
- In the Indian education system, we give more emphasis on memorizing the facts rather than thoroughly understanding the concepts. There is a lack of practical knowledge and only the importance of theory.
- Completely relying on textbooks. There is no other option rather than textbooks discovery of facts by practical is not present.
- Giving more importance to textbooks than the teacher. There is no autonomy for teachers.
- Students have no freedom to think creatively and to question the content in the textbooks.
- Taking marks as an assessment of student’s talent, when marks can be easily obtained by memorizing the pre-written answers from the textbooks.
- Students are not being taught why they are learning the particular subjects and topic. Textbooks do not mention how the topics are relevant in the practical life.
- There is no incentive for teachers to encourage critical thinking in children.
- Time duration is very long even for some basic courses.
The present education system in India is not a failure but yet there is a drastic change required in it, mainly some major modification like the adoption of practical knowledge rather too much theory and flexibility to learn. We should no measure anyone on the basis of their exam. With the effective learning system, India can successfully utilize its vast human resources.
