    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. So, the drawbacks of the higher education system underscore the need for reforms to make it worthwhile and beneficial to all concerned.

    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. Even though students fees are taken but quality of teaching which is provided is not good. Now a days students wants to understand subject in a practical way with little basic theory needed to understand the subject. Instead of that students are mugging up the subjects and are in the race of getting good marks. This whole scenario need to be changed along with time to time updation of syllabus.

    Education quality in India is not very bad. what we lack is the real world exposure to teh students. they do not get teh feel of industries, projects, manufacturing if they are getting engineering/ technical education. The MBA students of many colleges do not get teh exposure to actual day to day management practices, challanges. It is to some extent due to apathy of industries and organizations who will get teh final benefit of the trained and well educated stuffs.

    Well said Nikhileshji. Its better to take one step at-a-time than fast forwarding. Yes, there should be well defined objectives and clearly mapped out comes and i would say we may have to begin from the end to see what need to be changed.

    My views about the existing education system in India is like "Everyone wanting to make adequate changes.very-very soon. but with a procedure which is yet not validated. It seems to be a mad rush for making improvements. Sometimes I feel the education system has become a chariot which is being pulled in all directions with a motive to move it up th order but because it is being pulled simultaneously in all directions, the chariot basically remains standstill.Sometime we become too eager to improve things and go hammer & tongs at it with all procedures commissioned at the same time. The result is often status-quo.We all have the right intent ... view more

    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. And with just this hope tht these changes will result only in better, lets wait and watch.

    As very rightly stated by Nirmal ji Education trends are changing drastically in India and from the main stream courses like Doctor Engineer etc. are giving way to professional courses like fashion designing, interior designing, Tourism etc.

    There are atleast three emerging trends in our education system: Emergence of Private Universities and Institutions for professional Education, Emphasis on Vocational and Non traditional stream of Knowledge and Emphasis of Government on Universal enrollment in Primary and Middle Education.Till about early 80s Government was the main service provider in Higher and Technical education.However in recent past a number of private institutes and Industry groups have opened Universities and Private technical Institutions. This has spread the reach of technical and professional education to large section of population. India probably today has a larg... view more
