A note from a Father pertaining to National Education Policy:
India stood 2nd last 73 countries in PISA conducted by OECD for 15 years old in Science, Math and English skills.
Almost 90% of the middle school students are taking tutions in addition to schooling.
About 80% of our engineering graduates are not employable.
Our school education system is focusing too much on book knowledge. There is special emphasis on learning facts and theories etc. Most noteworthy, there is very less scope for students to do things basically linked to their routine. Somewhere we have lost that teaching-learning part in our education system. If we can let our students engage wholeheartedly, the learning would be much faster.
We need to explore means and methods to make our teaching hands on engaging for students. I came across a site called www.projectsforschool.com. They engage in curriculum based on do it yourself (DIY) models for science. If we can design models for various subjects the interest problem in studies is solved.
We need to enable our teachers to make use of these new methods as well.
Education sector especially relevant, needs big time reform at the school level. I hope you can do something and in conclusion start some change at least. Visit http://mhrd.gov.in/nep-new to learn more about the National Education Policy 2016. Send your suggestions via email.
Common queries parents have for their children
One of the common questions that parents ask us is – how do I nurture, groom and lead my child in the right direction? How do I do it beyond their school curriculum? One of such questions was the following:
“My 5 year old kid is very much interested in maths. How do I groom the kid apart from the school curriculum to motivate and guide him in the right direction? What are good options available in India?”
Interestingly, there are no standard answers to this question. So our experts responded to this question on Quora in the context of mathematics.
How should parents make their guidance so apt and feasible for their children that they can easily nourish them outside school.
