Paradigm Shift In Education

In present Indian educational system, which is third largest after China and USA, one question consistently popped out from everyone’s mind that whether the current educational scenario is compatible to fulfill the aspiration of students & parent and will it be capable of confronting an unknown future? What should be the purpose of education?  Just to have an exemplary job and earn a 7 figure salary gathering wealth upon it or it should be the novice way to impart knowledge and character to students in such a negative world so that they can be deciphered into a responsible citizen and spare their share in the development of the country. Every educational institution claiming to serve the required qualities needed to excel in their corresponding fields but the inefficiency of educational scenario is clearly visible. India is the country where some parents spends life saving and take loans putting their properties mortgaged, in spite of that not getting a standard quality education is a matter of shame.

The education our teachers are imparting is purely scheduled and syllabus based where teachers and students don’t get enough space for experimentation. They have to stick to what board or universities have told them to do. Both the entities i.e. teacher and student roam around under stress to finish the syllabus or curriculum in given time period. Every student is tirelessly running to acquire a Degree anyhow and jump into a neck to neck competition of getting a job. The education they are absorbing only telling them to go for higher percentage putting quality at stake. Only revolving around numbers they are forgetting that education is to show the path of success in life.

What is happening in current trend is just memorization of words and lines which are far away from understanding. Students are told to write the answer but not to understand the question asked and that’s where we are fundamentally wrong. If a teacher teaching in class and students doesn’t asks a counter question that reciprocate only two things either whole class understand everything or they understand nothing. Another aspect is, of reservation which is widening the gap between merit-based and reservation based education and ultimately damaging the quality of education.

Allowing uncontrolled mushrooming of private school, universities and colleges is not going to change this devastating situation. The time has come to redefine educational focus, purpose and viabilities for its effectiveness in the coming future and that is only possible through acquiring a sense of creativity and soundness of mind. In this process the two important factor i.e. Parent and State which are directly or indirectly connected, needs to be taken into consideration. The knowledge shouldn’t be a degradable commodity. It needs to be updated simultaneously with time only then education can be used to face challenges of time.

The scheduled educational program needs to be accompanied with creative skilled development program which seems to be the only way to acquired and update knowledge. The importance of training program shouldn’t be undermined. The profession of teacher is associated with low self-esteem such as if a person couldn’t make anything from another profession then teaching is a final destination. This mindset needs to change through helping in unleashing potential among people in teaching profession making them believe that they are doing an excellent job in the world and letting them know that teacher is a profession which makes another profession.

The time has come to look for new avenues for effective education with respective all, imparting new life skills. The unsatisfactory and absurd way of education need to revamp and make it more fun filled experience. We need to regard educational system which has the capability to execute the task and work with the potential to excel in the common effort of common people. What, how and why must strike every student brain initiating a thought process emphasizing to think deeper about every aspect not to just earn good CGPA but to understand thoroughly.

The utmost aim of education is to impart the way to live life by developing high rank of intelligence which can deal with reality and be ready for consequences. They need to teach a segregated conceptual thinking process which had leads many discoveries in past and think upon necessities and draw their way, a way how to think rather what to think.
