Challenges with the present education system
Please share your views and opinions.
The present system of higher education does not serve the purpose for which it has been started. In general education itself has become so profitable a business that quality is lost in the increase of quantity of professional institutions with quota system and politicization adding fuel to the fire of spoil system, thereby increasing unemployment of graduates without quick relief to mitigate their sufferings in the job market of the country.

Our present education system is not that bad. New and new educational institutes are opening but the main purpose of it is to earn more and more money from students.

There is a lot that can be mentioned about our country's education system but the most common thing these days is the rapid changes that are taking place.whether it is about the CAT going online or UGC NET changing its exam pattern to even single common entrances taking place.
