The present educational system is of low quality because people think of education as mere business or as a means to attain some objectives.
In kerala, we find more than three-forth of our students in cbse schools. Parents feels low to say that their ward is studying in a government school. So most of them prefer public schools.
Also, in government istitutions, we find that most of the time the teachers take leave. And in many schools there are very few students. The infrastructure provided by the government schools are also very low. These conditions have made people to stay away from the government schools.
Speaking about the present educational system prevailing in our country, we find that the institutions give much weight to theories. I personally have an opinion that practical knowledge should be embedded to the growing generation so that they are aware when and where to use the knowledge they attain.
People treat education as if learning about few things in order to clear some exams, but education should be made a lifestyle, and not a burden.
