Education is the first and foremost requirement of an individual and is the basic need for the survival of a person.
Education is something that creates great personalities that inspire the whole world. If you see, almost everything has changed in this world, whether it’s technology, lifestyle, the comfort of life and many other things. But the education system is the same as it used to be before 100-150 years.
A Man has changed and advanced every aspect of life but the thing that creates great engineers, doctors, lawyers etc. is still using the same techniques that were used by the teachers in the past. There are no advances in the education system for than a century. Same principles and techniques are being used by the teachers and professors in the schools till now.
Every student is forced to follow a particular path and pattern of study. No student is ever allowed to show his creativity and passion towards the field he is good at. Same subjects are being taught for years that actually has no importance. Every student is literally forced to study all the subjects mandatory. There is no room for the students to showcase their talents, this matter has to be taken seriously.
If we look at the most successful people on this planet, we will arrive at a conclusion that they all opposed the current education system and they faced a lot of criticism for that. Whether it’s famous scientist Albert Einstein or famous businessmen like Steve jobs and Bill Gates, they all opposed the current education system and when they realized that nobody is listening to them, they arrived at a conclusion and chose to drop out from the schools and colleges. They chose to work in the field they had passion in. According to them, there is no need for a student to study anything forcefully.
The main flaw in our education system is that everybody has to follow the same set of techniques and rules. We have to keep in mind the fact that every individual doesn’t have the same interest and same mental intelligence. Everybody has different strengths and weaknesses which have to be understood by the teachers and should encourage the student to give full attention in that particular field. There is no need for every student to study everything. There should be a proper career guidance to the students at the school level.
Our present education system is like compulsory vaccination, no matter you need it or not, you must have it. This should not be done. There should be an up gradation of the present education system and it has to be taken into account seriously. There should be a proper system to identify the talents and interests of each and every student at the primary school level. So that the student can have enough time to explore and learn about that field and can have expertise in that field when he reaches the college. It can be very helpful for the student as he will be able to complete his degree without any load of study. He will feel joy in exploring the advances of his course in the college level and at the time he will leave the college, he will definitely end up having real job in his hands.
It’s now necessary to throw some light on the up gradation of the present education system and if it will not be considered as soon as possible, it will have many adverse effects on the future of the students. We can see a lot of unemployment now-a-days, even the college graduates are not having jobs. This is the result of the flaws in our education system which has to be resolved soon.
