Indian education system is in dire need of a revamp. The present system does not encourage creativity. It has also failed to keep the students grounded to the basic life values.
The pandemic conditions have further exposed the chinks in the system. The system was found wanting in every aspect. It was not future ready. The students and teachers both are struggling to embrace technology. Even most of the well read people lacked basic hygiene manners and discipline. Police force had to be diverted to enforce wearing of masks and following COVID protocols. Aren’t the basics like hand washing and discipline taught at homes and in kindergarten?
The focus of education must shift from just preparing the students for a job to preparing them for life.
