While there is a lot of falsehood being spread by Arvind Kejriwal’s Delhi Government about the school education, Delhi stands at a low No. 9 in the list of 10 regions.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in India declared Class-10 results on Monday. According to CBSE, Trivandrum performed best amongst all regions with 99.85% pass percentage followed by Chennai region with 99.00% while Ajmer stands at third position with 95.89% pass percentage.

While there is a lot of falsehood being spread by Arvind Kejriwal’s Delhi Government about the school education, Delhi stands at a low No. 9 in the list of 10 regions with only 80.97 pass percentage. This again shows that the quality of education in Delhi schools is pathetically bad.

According to CBSE, 17,61,078 students appeared in the exam out of which 16,04,428 students passed the exam. The overall pass percentage of this year is 91.10. Thirteen students have topped the exam with 499 total marks.

But there is no cause for celebrating the exam results because these results have no link with the careers of the students. Since the quality of education is equally bad in all parts of India, students with even higher education degrees do not get jobs.

Google search reveals that there is no value of educational degrees while the crowds of unemployed degree holders are increasing in India.

As the education standards are very poor in India, the degree holders do not learn skills that are required in the modern job market. As a result, the employment situation is 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. 130 in the global list of countries ranked on the basis of their HDI.

The HDI rank of war-torn countries such as Iraq, Palestine, and also Sri Lanka, China, Namibia, Vietnam, and Guyana are better than that of India.

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.

Consequently, out of nearly 500 million workers in India, over 94% work in unorganized sector as pushcart vendors, street hawkers, domestic servants, and so on. This means the education standards in India are so poor that schools and colleges are not producing workforce employable for respectable jobs in the organized enterprises.

Plus, the web is replete with facts and figures that reveal the irrelevance of Indian education systems and how they are wasting students’ time and parents’ money.
