Creating a pattern (technological) move in India’s Education System: Pre & Post COVID-19

Declaration from Editor’s Bureau Volume - 2 Issue - 2 e-Issn2582-5755 February 2020

To live in tomorrow’s ecosphere, it will be crucial for a mankind to munch a high technology quotient. Educators around the ecosphere have been talking about the need to volte-face how we edify future generations. This might just be the disruption that the sector needed to get us all to about-turn how we educate, and question what we need to impart and what we are preparing our students for. So, as we educators handle new ways of communicating with our students away from our classrooms and lecture theatres. Pedagogics in digital education is a significant link between course content, educationists, technology and course-takers. Democratization of technology is now a significant issue, comprising internet connectivity, telecom infrastructure, affordability of online systems, availability of laptop/desktop, software, educational tools, online assessment tools, etc. But it is a fact that technology-based education is more translucent and does not make adjustment in front vs back benchers or girls vs boys.

Takshasila (in modern-day Pakistan) was the most primitive recorded center of higher learning in India from possibly the 8 th century BC. The imperative urban centers of learning were Nalanda (in modern- day Bihar) and Manassa in Nagpur, among others. Education in India is provided by public schools (controlled and subsidized by three levels: central, state and local) and private schools. Under various articles of the Indian Constitution, free and compulsory education is provided as an essential right to children between the ages of 6 and 14. The estimated ratio of public schools to private school

in India is 7:5. The school system in India has four levels: lower primary (age 6 to 10), upper primary (11 and 12), high (13 to 15) and higher secondary (17 and 18). The lower primary school is alienated into five “standards”, upper primary school into two, high school into three and higher secondary into two. Educational disadvantages are demonstrated in many ways, most often in poor levels of participation and achievement in the formal education system. There are other ways in which children may be disadvantaged, for example as a result of a disability, literacy difficulties, ill health, poverty etc. Before going into the depth of this entire education system and pedagogy there are certain questions that need to be answered.

Why is Indian education system good?

People are less unemployed and approximately of them are even freelancing or rather self-employed. One of the best optimistic things is that child labor has gone down to an excellent extent. There are also reservation systems available for the socially underprivileged people.

How bad is Indian education system?

The Government of India is well conscious of the problems in the Indian education system, but has been slow in responding to them. School infrastructure is in a poor state and many school teachers are not properly qualified, with 31% of them not having a degree. Subsequently, the state of learning is very poor.

•Does Indian education system need change?

The Indian education system is not the only unique that needs change, but also the mindset of teachers, students and parents need a serious upgrade. To truly restructure we need to take examples from countries which have established a scratch in their education systems.

•What are the problems in Indian education system?

Insufficient, Inopportune distribution of Funds or Lack of it – Funds are the major reasons for the Education problem in India. If funds are obtainable, they are not being used effectively. At times, the lack of funds hampers education and many times, the funds are just inadequate to solve the matter

•Why Traditional Education is important?

It was a method to defend, preserve and progress traditional indigenous skills and cultures. Education was a noteworthy step towards empowering indigenous peoples to contribute more entirely in their communities. It was an essential asset to attain freedom and social justice.

Thus, Indian education system has experienced a significant transformation since the dawn of independence. The government has implemented many ways to eradicate the basic problem of literacy in even the remotest areas and has been successful in many instances. Some of the features of education system are

• Innovation design education.

• Enhancement of social competencies.

• Strengthening of theoretical knowledge.

• Enhancement of inventiveness.

• Multiple advisor system.

• Building good morale by providing moral education.

• Multifaceted Research Activities through Minor and Major Research Project.

• Career oriented guidance

Thus, Indian education system which somewhat traditional in nature focuses on important points:


•it is completely effective, i.e. the child learns all he/sheneeds to know to become a functioning adult;

•although the education involves harsh trials and ordeals, every child who survives them is allowed to “graduate”;

On the other hand, the system which influences society to pressurize their children and push them into something that they are not interested in:

•The Indian education system is just like a platform where people get into their career trains inappropriately. In India only two busy trains exist: Engineering and Doctor.

•None of the Indian schools/colleges concentrate on the internal abilities of a child.

•None of the institutes concentrate on the interests the student has

Comparative Learning Phenomenon Pre & Post Covid 2019

COVID-19 is a pandemic that illustrates how globally interconnected we are – there is no longer such a thing as isolated issues and actions. The COVID-19 pandemic is a health crisis, an economic crisis, and also a crisis for children’s education. UNESCO reports that in response to the pandemic schools have closed in 160 countries, affecting more than 1.5 billion students. In the best-case scenario, schools seamlessly adopt online learning, students continue to interact virtually with each other, and parents step up as temporary teachers. For this scenario to be realized, a series of factors have to line up to perfection: Schools need to have the resources to implement remote learning, students need to have access to computers, printers, and reliable internet connections at home, and parents need to have the ability, time, energy, and patience to turn into home-school instructors, on top of other responsibilities.

To say bad is being lenient, It’s worse. So worse that it needs a thorough revamp at the earliest. First of all,education should be free. It is not. They are charging like they are selling gold. Education, legitimately, is a service, but openly and essentially a business. The politicians, education officers and the education sellers connive and rob the gullible general public in broad daylight. There is no monitoring of donations collected by schools, there is no monitoring of standards, there is no monitoring of processes and procedures. The Government of India is well conscious of the problems in the Indian education system, but has been slow in responding to them. School infrastructure is in a poor state and many school teachers are not properly qualified, with 31% of them not having a degree.Subsequently, the state of learning is very poor. The major disadvantage of the prevailing system of education is that it is not easily reasonable. Today in India more than 37% of people are living below the poverty line. So, they can’t afford education even at primary level.

Also, the Coronavirus is acting two-fold for education system in India. On the darker side it has forced the institutions to shut andexaminations to be postponed, but on the brighter side it is making the students and teachers “tech savvy”. Schools are conducting online classes so that course remains at par and other higher institutions are also conducting exams online. Moreover, various institutions are conducting online seminars and workshops. So, it is expected that Indian education system will turn out to be better post Coronavirus.
