The picture says it all!
Since ages, as far as ‘I’ suppose, there is no progress in our Educational system. Children continue carrying loads of books on their back. They do not have any enthusiasm in learning things. Teachers keep on saying the theory, rather than , teaching the concepts in-practical. How long will it go? How long the children have to carry this burden?
“Taare Zameen Par” is the best example of how a typical child feels about the education. I’m not going to blame every teacher or every school/college for adopting this BAD system. But, I’m questioning that, why should we go and participate in such rat races? Why the children are not getting up early in the morning to learn something new?
It is good when we have a rivalry between two people about their knowledge. But, it is seriously a BIG mistake if there is a competition between their grades or marks! In most of the schools, the knowledge is measured with a scale called “grades”. Every single child has their own specific talent in some field!
Once, Einstein said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” How true it is! Not only IITians or MBBS students have the ability to feed their family. I pity that Education is merely used to do job and earn money for family. Education should be enjoyed in every stage of our life.
There is no age limit to ‘learn’ or ‘teach’ something. Rabindranath Tagore started painting in 1924 at the prime age of 63. Isn’t it amazing, how great people enjoyed the essence of learning something?
Recently, I read an article in our local newspaper ‘EENADU’, in which they stated that .. they did some changes in Intermediate 1st year and 2nd year syllabus. They reduced 50-100 pages in their textbooks.
What do they mean by that? Do they think, we learn the subjects with ease if they reduce some topics from text book? That’s insane! Hmm…
I’m not going to give ideas or judge about how the Education system should develop. May be, because I don’t have the right to do so. I just raise my voice that learning among children must be a regular habit and they should enjoy each and every stage of their life with education.
I still wish to see such generation!
If I have the chance to change something, then .. that would definitely be about our “Educational System” !
