From a long time a debate has been on between many academicians about the education system in India and how effective is it in terms of keeping up with the latest technology and the way the world is heading. On one side, the argument is strong that the fundamental concepts in subjects like Mathematics, physics, Chemistry is quite efficient in our country but is that sufficient for students to keep pace with the world?
The fact of today is employers are unable to find skilled resources who can match their criteria but at the same time there are lakhs of youngsters who are unable to find a proper job. This is more like a paradox. While the education system which is outdated is being tagged as the key cause for this gap, there are those who say it is also due to the lack of vocational training among students.
Due to a large amount of focus on academic subjects whose curriculum is practically not matching with the real world standards, despite passing out from premium institutions with high qualification, the individuals are unable to match the required objective and keep pace with the system. This is more like a culture shock to them when they get into the world of jobs and careers.
The experts suggest that along with education there must be enough focus on what the industry requirements are and the students must be prepared in that pattern. For this, the fundamentals of educational system have to be changed which is not happening. The requirement of the employers must be taken into consideration and that should create a proper balance between everyone. Let us hope the authorities and the industries collaborate on this.
