It comes as no surprise that the ever-eager-to-learn Indian is leaving no stone unturned to ensure quality education for his children, thus 'securing' their future. The awareness of the importance of quality education is even felt by domestic help who would rather forego a meal but ensure their children's fees are paid on time. In the case of educated and ambitious parents, they would like to stop at nothing to provide their children with the best education, which would then take the kids a long way in life. No wonder then, toddlers today, armed with a tiny little schoolbag and an equally tiny water bottle, trod all the way to 'play'school. The idea being that these playschools serve as a venue for young ones to interact with others their age and develop social skills. When it comes to a regular school that will provide education right up to class 10 (or 12 in some cases), there are many options. Parents in their quest for 'quality' education have several boards to choose from – SSC, CBSE, ICSE, IB and IGCSE.
Progressing, we move on to various professional courses that continue to be introduced, almost every year, at the bachelor's and master's level to make students even more job friendly. Courses like Bachelor's in Banking and Insurance, Bachelor's in Computer Applications, Bachelor's in Mass Media, Bachelor's in Management Studies are just some of the 'newly' introduced courses that many youngsters are taking to, like fish to water. Corporates who were contributing a significant amount to causes like natural calamities, environment etc are now channelising their funds towards education. Education, even in modern day India, is looked at as the tool that can secure futures.
