How to Shift Education from “Survival for the Fittest” to Child’s THRILL, SKILL & DRILL?
The Catalyst Bureau has been researching the numbers of students who are on their path to success and grabbing knowledge and found out.
The tertiary sector (services) has been the primary driver of economic growth. Trade, communication, financing, insurance, business services, and social and personal services account for approximately 60 percent of GDP. The primary sector of India generates around 12 percent of the output. On the other hand, it employs more than 50 percent of the labor force. This might be due to the illiteracy of the inhabitants. In 2011, only 66 percent of females in India were literate (males – 82 percent). Total gross enrolment in primary education was 108 percent (some students were repeating), 74 percent in secondary education, and only 25.5 percent in tertiary education (mainly due to the high poverty level). India, as a developing country, typically lacks the skill sets and knowledge required to adopt new technology and implement it in the local environment. Thus, implementing a learning process becomes a necessity.
More than 50% of Indian children drop out of school at the primary level. This is caused by a lack of literacy and the failure of government education programs within the country (National Portal of India, 2015). According to the official government program, the level of expenditure for education in India should be 6% of its GDP. However, the reality is that only 3% of the GDP is spent on education (Aggarwal, 2008). Therefore, it is very important to clarify the relationship between education and economic growth and how they influence each other.
As “New Age Educationalists” our goal is not just to focus on one aspect of education. Our vital intent is to change how people look at education.
Generally, people look out for the curriculum to be covered for class 12th boards, some focus on the entrance exams, and some look out for competitive examinations for higher education.
