Although the Indian education system has been reported as the third best education system in the globe yet it exhibits many drawbacks. The learning system is noticed by not being so friendly for the students. There have been many reasons behind this problem, excessive population growth and socioeconomic problems are the leading reasons.
Excessive rise in population has increased the struggle for existence among people more and more. It has been the major cause of competition in this education system for the present generation. Recently reported a story of a Maharashtrian girl named Kavita Burumle (though her name has been changed) became a victim of this problem.
Kavita came from a small rural town to study in Kota, in Rajasthan. She went there to get prepared for her medical competitive exams and used to stay in a hostel. Despite of all she tries, she unfortunately did not succeed in getting admission to any renowned medical college. She spent a huge amount of money and drained all her valuable and time and energy but all turned in vain.
Kavita followed a packed routine. Her daily coaching classes started from 6a.m. at morning and continued till 9p.m. at night. Her self-study period was also included in the routine. Before she joined Kota classes she had a same packed routine of tuitions from 8a.m. to 10.30 a.m. and then her school hours continued from 12p.m. to 6p.m. She did not get any time to play or enjoy her childhood. She had to give all her focus on her competitive exam. This problem is faced not only Kavita but millions of children all over India. The Indian education system cannot provide enough seats for the desired students. This leads to the hard competitions.
But reports say that this is not the correct way to make the students excel in studies. Other countries apart from India follows much more varied learning methods. The students do not face so bad competition in their studies. Other similar reported stories say that about a family who returns to India in 1981 from US to stay in a small town of Phaltan in Maharashtra. They could not admit their children to any good schools because the town lacked good quality educational institutes. The family adopted the duty to start a good Marathi school. Firstly it started from a primary one and gradually grew into a higher school. Each year a class increased as per their daughter's class.
The basic motive behind the family’s initiative was to provide a good all round education facilities in the town for other children. They do face many obstacles and challenges but their motive helped them to continue with their dreams. Similarly like this family, there are many people who tried a lot of methods to decrease the competitions. But Indian rising population did not help these people.
Children face a lot of problems. In spite of studying for hours and giving all their leisure time on education, they fail to get admission into good schools or colleges. This sort of problems are nearly low or rather nil for other countries. Therefore, the Indian government must wake up to look after these issues and put up legal actions against this.
