Disconnection between Schools and Society- Thoughts

Colonial Educationist Mayhew noted of our education system 60 years ago.

"When the educated Indian is most himself, in the expression of his deepest emotion, and in the domestic or communal enjoyment of his leisure, he shows the least trace of what our schools and colleges have given him. "



The connection between society and the schools seemed to be broken back in those days itself. I see a little change in the education system and its impact on the individual. The education in India depicts the wishes, dreams of Indians on Education. Economic upliftment is one wish that everyone wishes for. And in the course of acquiring the wants, the education system in India has turned out to answer the wants of few people without holistic teaching of the knowledge.
