Re: Re: [India-Force] Indian System of Education
Well i am a bit agreed with u, u are saying from last 2 year.. but as u know an indian education, have to start from class 8th. where student have growing logical as well as art power in them... they are in that stage to develop their own field, as in india majority student don't know what to choose after 10 class or after 12th class, because there is always pressure from parents to go in medical or engg, so if they start from class 8th then might be posible that they have better idea to choose their own field which of an interest..
What u say?
Assistant Console Officer,
I dont think you want high school graduates to be
What we need is some kind
- Dear Nish,
It is unfortunate that we donot have consulars in our
schools who can guide the youngesters. In USA eduction
system which by the way is run by local boards as we
all pay school taxes, they provide consulars who will
discuss and guide the student.
Even if we had such system of consuling, I presume our
parent pressure will override the child's goal.
Unfortunately we have seen similar cases even in USA,
though rare whee the parents want the child to be a
doctor or Engineer and the child has reolted and left
the house or even may go on drugs. We as parents
though worry about the welfre of our children, must
allow them to develop also.
Thanks and regards

I think there is counselling system for admission to the professional colleges. I just saw some where something about it.
You said the parent pressure is more on the children forcing them to take a course which si not their choice.
In India when I wasa student the criterio was merit and the the top man gets the admission. in the college we used to joke.. in India wives and professions are not chosen but they are thrust upon. So far as maariages are concerned thers is a chnage in the trnd of selecting wives. Now adyas the boys selct the girls.. by day and night.. with the divorses as many as marriages.
So far as the professions are concerned..once the merit is killed and the method of selection for admissions is anything other than merit.. the profession again is purely a matter of chance. What will the counsellor do if the fellow getting over 90% is denied admission to favour another who just manages to scape trhough?
In USA the admissions are not based on factors other than merit. In India the main factor is that.I still remember when I was a student the admissions were purely based on merit and the person topping the list or holds a rank does not have to go round begging for admission. When I got a rank in the Master's degree I was called and offered a position on the faculty.Now see the progress we have made in the last nearly fifty years.we cannot be even sure of admission even if we are toppers.
Tell me honsetly what the counsellor can do in such cases?
- Dear Jey,
I am surprised that you think vocational education is
beyond the Indians. why are we afraid to learn any
trade where we may have to get our hands
dirty.Everyone cannot be a genius or Doctor. we all
must utilise our abilities to the best and thus have
some way to utilise these God given faculities.
What is wrong beinga computor technologist who can
repair or reset yoru set. what objection do you have
for vocational training? We must change our education
system and try to get as many people in schools who
can read and write and learn to work with hands. Even
an engineer here has to present project which he must
workout and gets his hands dirty.
