In the past 70 years of its independence, no government in India tried to create a strong education ecosystem in the country. As a result, hardly 5% of India’s 1.3 billion population is practically educated to handle those professional jobs where relevant education is required.

As most politicians in India are uneducated and bureaucrats do not possess sufficient domain expertise, the education standards have been deteriorating.

All governments have been increasing the number of school and college buildings without realizing the fact that these buildings are useless if there is no focus on human resource development.

Although India has a huge education network comprising 757 universities, over 38,000 colleges, and nearly 1.3 million schools that have 260 million children, the education system continues to be bad in all parts of India.

The new Draft National Education Policy of the Indian government has highlighted so many flaws in the existing education ecosystem of India that it appears educational institutions are mere stone buildings where no education is happening.

After reading the government document which underlines the poor quality of teachers and teaching methods at all levels, all wise parents would wonder why they are sending their children to schools, colleges, and universities.

Most teachers – particularly in schools – are not trained to teach any subject and they are clueless about the job market requirements. The situation is equally bad in government as well as private schools.

Teachers have become a burden on the education system. Consequently, crimes and corruption are increasing in schools.

Today there is a wide mismatch between the education being provided to students in India and the skills requirement in the contemporary job market. As a result, degree holders do not get jobs and employers do not get skilled people.

Multiple research reports suggest that degrees and diplomas that students get after completing their education have no value in the job market. Such students fail to get any job and they are joining the herds of unemployed youth in the country.

It is difficult for graduates, postgraduates, and even Ph.D. degree holders to get even a peon’s job in India.

The employment situation and education systems are equally bad in all parts of the country. It is reflected in the worsening Human Development Index (HDI) of India.

Published by the United Nations Development Programme, HDI indicates the level of skills in a country and lets you know if people in that country are able to achieve their goals. Unfortunately, India falls at No. 131 in the global list of countries ranked on the basis of their HDI.

That means, despite all the loud claims by the Indian governments about the education standards in the country, the education in India is not producing skilled workforce. The so-called educated people in India are not employable in any modern field. Worse, most of them are not even trainable.

The politicians cry that the young people will bring a better future for India. However, in the absence of the right education and employment for them, the young people of India are like time bombs which will explode to bring disaster for the country.
