The State of Education, Today
Education has always been a noble profession. Our ancestors received their learning at gurukuls and ashrams. Even in the near past pathshalas(schools) were associated with places of worship. Today, education is fast becoming commercialized. Parents have to shell out a lot of money on coaching classes, tuition fees, etc. It shows there is something wrong with our education system. Let’s find out with the discussion below.
In those days education system was practical. It encouraged students to learn new skills than marks. So students enjoyed the process of learning and learned eagerly. But today, the education system is theoretical. It encourages students on how to get more marks than learning new skills. It considers students with high marks as good students and students with low marks as poor students. It makes the low-scoring students commit suicide. It never devised a new model for slow learners to learn well. There is no single model examination for the exam. A student has to learn for his board exam differently and entrance exam in a different way. It makes the parents spend more money on tuition and coaching classes.
Our modern education system shows education is the only way to succeed in life. This perspective for education must change. Only then our education system will change.
