Indian Education System and Policies

by Ratul Puri Marketing Consultant
The history of Indian education system is in the times of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Earlier in History Indian education system was known as Gurukula system where Guru (teacher) and infant (master) lived together under a roof in Gurukula.  Shishya was expected to help the guru in the daily work as part of the education of anybody. In the beginning of the 19th century, the modern education system was brought to our country by Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay. This was the cornerstone examination of the education system and a well-defined course in which subjects such as science and mathematics were given importance and subjects like philosophy, metaphysics were given back seats. Open classes in Gurukula were replaced by brick and mortar class.

Instead of understanding the concepts, the students started crushing things. Under the modern school education in India, separate boards were set up in the country; the Uttar Pradesh High School Board and Intermediate Education were the first board to be established in India. Later, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian Secondary Education Certificate (ICSE) were established. In addition to the previous national level boards, each state has state boards; schools affiliated with these boards must follow the guidelines of the respective boards.

School education in India comes under the control of the Educational Research and Training Council (NCERT), which helps the central and state governments on educational matters. It provides support and technical support for different schools and looks at matters related to education policy.

Problems in Indian education system-

We all want a job that pays us in six figures every month. But as a matter of fact, we are not ready to see the ground reality of our education system that how come it is going to help you in getting a job that could pay you in six figures.

  •     Promotes rat-race among the students s they just have to mug up entire text book without understanding it.
  •     Our education system does not build persona of a child as it is only caring about marks and not for the personality of a child.
  •     Lack of critical analysis in the children.
  •     Lack of global outlook among the students.
  •     Teachers are not properly trained and efficient.
  •     Lack of innovation and creativity.

Due to these factors the Indian education system is lacking behind and is not able to reach at par with the international education standards. Education is very important. So these issues need to be eradicated from root so that every child in India gets quality education.
