The Indian education system needs to be ‘re-invented’ and a network needs to be build between higher education and industry, said Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi speaking at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).
Gandhi also said in India education and industry are thought of in two separate ways. But modern universities and education are the link that connects industry, government, NGOs and students. Currently, there is a disconnect between the industry and higher education.
He further added that apart from a few institutions and universities, India lacks the level of networking and modern knowledge systems required. He also stressed up on the need for an increase in the access to education system which can be done through use of modern technology. Also a lots needs to be done in terms of improving the quality of the teacher and building connectivity in primary education. Broadly he focused on the need for re-inventing the education system in the country.
