I could see that now here in India there are various types of schools provided various standards and levels of education. The student who needs a quality education needs a school or institute that provides that quality. Moreover the monetary side is another matter to get a quality education. Moreover those scholarships schemes which are great help to those brilliant students. It is also commented that educations institutions are producing students like factory products. May be students do have their own better interest and skills that may not be encouraged in these education system. The grading or marking systems too have some unhealthy feelings in student’s capabilities. Punishments are to be given carefully which could even make their mental balance affected that could reflect in their studies. I hope well trained teachers and staffs of a school could provide quality students and citizens.

I am very dissatisfied with the current educational system. I live in Canada. And I guess we teach our students good enough. But, if that is the case, why do people never listen to each other? Why do people never work hard? Why is it most high school students, don't understand basic maths, and english? I think, as a reform, we should be teaching, in its own special class, first thing each day, speaking and listening, and each afternoon, evaluate it. When you listen with your full attention, you remember almost everything. So few people listen with their full attention. When you ask the right questions, you get value based answers, that could help you so much more then "fact" based answers, I mean who cares what year that crazy war happened, You need to know, Why it happened, and what would have been a better way to handle the situation, so you don't repeat the mistakes. Who cares, when, what. Who cares, how, What. As for punishments, failing grades are suitable. I of course, would much prefer to do it this way, you get $10 for every percent point over 90. See how many people fail school then. My principal in High School, I was just a freshman, and he got fired for it, but he gave each student $20 for every credit over 110, we only needed 100 to graduate. Thanks for your time, I appreciate you.

May be lots of students are unable show their actual talents. If hope punishments could be avoided if the tutor or teacher is an expert in tacking students may be a well trained one.

What do you mean by tacking students? I offered that a failing grade is a more then suitable punishment, for a failing student. Perhaps the students are unable to show their talents? What would cause that? What could their talent be that they can not show them? Perhaps if they listened better, and did as they were asked. Payed attention to the lesson, or better yet, were involved in the lesson, I find discussing works way better then just absorbing. And encouraged to be open, then they could show their actual talents, or maybe their parents put an artist into law school and that just doesn't fit. Who knows. But, I still say, offer substantial rewards for excellence and you will get just that excellence. I appreciate you.

Sorry for the spelling mistake, it is tackling students. Yes discussing works better, that is right to open up their talents. That is right.

hello, first main motive of every education system is not to demotivate the student. every teacher has to motivate every student. if teacher will demotivate the child like u r not doing ur best,u seat behind, no one talks. ur way of teaching a child should be best. its also like a punishment if teacher is not considering the student very well. it creates depression(mental imbalance) in the student mind. So, plz take care of student, they r the future of country. Studies should be in practicle way so student can easily be understand the subject which they r teaching. thanks.

The school systems here really suck. That's the bottom line. The schools here really don't focous on the edicuation at all. And, high school is all about preasuring students to go to college. Most students aren't even thinking that far into the future. Some go on to college others... well.. others do not.

Hi sham, I started a discussion earlier on the same subject and what I could gather from that is, nobody is satisfied with the education system which is based on theory. When they started to find out a job they are facing difficulty to apply theory in practical life. Students are not getting a chance to explore their creative ideas. In exams they are just memorizing the theory and scoring marks. Now some schools are adopting the method of encouraging the creativity too. Regarding punishments, all schools are against punishments but if we study the reports, corporal punishments are going on in every school though school authorities are against the same.

Yes, you are right those theories remain as theory, but practical is faced in real life. May be well trained teachers could rectify these students without punishments.

I think I am quite satisfied with the educational system that we have here in my country especially when it comes to early childhood education and elementary education as well as in high school education. Most schools in our country uses the English language as the primary way to communicate with student and teachers. At a very early age, kids are being taught to speak English. The same thing with elementary and high school. The problem with the system in college is that even though we are still using English in our classes some subjects in our majors are included in the curriculum even though it is not very essential for the major.
