Quality and Quantity do not go hand-in-hand- the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi also believes on this popular saying. In a recently held programme, the PM said that it is time to lay more stress on the quality of education, rather than on its quantity.
Since, the last many years, the government’s focus is on spreading education across the country.The government had been expanding education by building new schools and colleges and hiring new teachers. But, now according to the PM, the time has come to shift the focus on quality education. The government should emphasise more on learning, rather than opening schools.
The quality of education can be improved in the following ways:
With the advancement in technology, technology can be used to improve the education system. It is time that e-Learning should be introduced, at all levels.
Awareness among parents regarding their wards’ education can certainly help improve educational standards in the country.According to the PM, the government has already started taking steps for raising the educational standards. Many out-of-box ideas were discussed at the recently held Budget. Universities were asked about their requirements to become the best in the world. Secondly, it is being seen that a lot of emphasis is put on skill-based and long-distance education formats.
All these steps would surely improve the quality of Indian education in a short time.
