Education Means Learning Not Cramming

The Present Examination system is a strange phenomenon in India.Students at all levels are tested not in the knowledge they have acquired and how well they communicate it to the examiner in their own way..The Examination are meant to see how well a student has crammed and how efficiently does he reproduce it in the answer books in the examination hall. Teaching and learning is not dictating or cramming.It is rather a healthy process that requires comprehension - retention- Communication. All children have their own original way of doing things.Just touch it and it will come up making learning a fun and not a cumbersome task.
