There are a lot of reasons behind the under achievement nature of India. There are a lot of things that do not bring a smile on the faces of the Indian people. The major reason that should be looked at as soon as possible is the degradation of the education system in India. The economic failure of the country is highly connected to the poor education system of the country. India is just the opposite of the US in terms of financial status, economic growth as well as education. A lot needs to be done to improve on the scenario.
How USA is better than India?
United States is known all over the world for their glorious economic growth. They are the richest in terms of economy. On the other hand India is still called a developing country. The economic growth in the country is very slow. The level of education in the country is the worst across the globe. People from India want to study abroad to have a better future. The youth in the country no longer have faith in the education system of the country.
According to the latest rankings by the Academic Rankings of World Universities the top five institutions in the world are from the United States of America. Out of the top 20 17 of them are from United States. This goes to show how dominating they are in the field of education. On the other hand India does not even have 1 name in the top 100. Out of the top 500 there is only one Indian name, Indian Institute of Science [IIS Bangalore]. This goes to show how much education needs to be improved in a country like India.
People of India:
The people of India are not fools by any means. They have done well in other countries. They do not want to be a part of the decaying system in India. The people only think of their own well being and they want to work abroad. The people read about the problems everyday and they are least bothered. Most of the people cannot even read about the problems. The illiteracy rate is very high in India. The education system in India does not promote anything that will enable the students to think in a different way.
Politics in the education system:
The ministers in the Indian government are not worried about the progress of the education of the country. Most of the ministers themselves cannot read. Even the ministers are illiterate in India. The government should allow the private organizations to take care of education. That will give a better chance for the education system to develop. The politics should be removed from the education system of the country. Unless the politicians stop thinking of their own benefit and start to look after the country’s growth there is no scope for progress. Indian education has a lot to cope up with in order to give the students a better education system.
