151. Short Essay and Article on : Our System of Education

Our system of education suffers from many defects. Write an article for a newspaper outlining the defects in our system of education, and suggesting some measures to remove these defects.

Ans:-                                        OUR SYSTEM OF EDUCATION

The greatest defect in our present system of education is that it is too theoretical. An educated man has only bookish knowledge. He knows nothing about practical things.

The present system of education gives too much importance to English. At many places, it is the medium of instruction. English may be an international language. It may have rich treasures of science and literature. But it can never be our national language. Education must be in the mother tongue. This will save much talent of the country from going waste.

Vocational education is the need of the hour. We need more and more technicians, engineers and doctors. But, the number of vocational institutions — engineering and Medical Colleges, Polytechnics and I.T.I.’s —is limited. A large number of young men and women, who can do well as technicians, are deprived of technical or vocational knowledge.

The 10 + 2 + 3 system was designed to vocational education and to channelize the talent to different fields. But, different states have taken to it only half-heartedly. As the things stand today, the 10 + 2 + 3 system has become a riddle. No one knows what exactly it is. Our system of education really needs to be overhauled and made purposeful.
