Children in India need to learn following courses in their school lives
Arts – History, economics and geography( strange isn’t it?)
Science – Physics, chemistry, mathematics
Languages– English, mother tongue, a regional language, ancient language.
Extra curricular– Music, Physical training etc.
Lab work in all science courses
Project in one area
This is to be covered in one year and not in ten years.
Situation in college is not better.On an average, a student has to study eight courses with five lab classes included in half a year.
Students cram to get marks. They don’t go in depth, don’t develop any competency. They are fodder for corporate world which is a giant mill filtering people like grains and putting them anywhere it wants.
With slight differences, I am sure it is same everywhere. Individuality, specialization in the field is not determined by the choice but by market potential.
The way education is organized these days is highly detrimental to entrepreneurship. Instead of getting a job, the focus should be on create a job.
