Education is very important to the people of India. The students need to be guided carefully in the field that they want to move forward. The need for basic education cannot be ignored in a country like India. India is a country where there are a lot of problems persisting. These problems can only be taken care of with the help of education. Education is the basic need to solve all the problems that are persisting in the country. Lack of education will only increase the problems in the future. The major problems are as follows:
The literacy levels in most areas of the country are very low. There are still areas where people do not know how to read and write. The tribal areas are very backward. Only the urban cities have the infrastructure and education that should be given to the modern day student. With education to the people the literacy rates of the country could be improved. Improving the literacy rates will help the people to know more about the happening around them. They will be able to think and do work more logically. They will be able to differentiate between the right and wrong.
The lack of educational qualification is the main reason for unemployment in the country. The world is moving at a very rapid pace. To overcome this, employers are all looking for people who are educated in the particular field of work. Due to the lack of education in the Indian people they remain unemployed. The modern machinery and computers need educated people but in India the level of education is not up to the mark. Unless the education is improved there will be unemployed people in the country.
This is by far the greatest problem that the country is facing today. In a developing country like India the level of poverty is way too high. Poverty is one of the major results of illiteracy. Educated people can find a way to earn a living hence reducing poverty but when people are uneducated they have no way to earn a living and start begging on the streets and doing jobs that enhance the level of poverty. To increase the earnings in a family people start having more children and cannot afford education for all. Thus illiterate people increase and so does the population of the country increase.
Need for change:
The government needs to put in some thought behind the education of the people. Education will help to eradicate all these problems. Once these problems are taken care of, the people of India will have a higher standard of living. Education is the foundation for change. Education helps people to understand the world better and the performance will improve. It will also give people a chance to lead a healthy life. This will make fit people who are ready to work and earn a living. Unless education is improved in the country the situation cannot change.
