"By now you must have experienced some faults in education system that you have been a part of. Or perhaps if you are fortunate you may have never been in an education system. Whatever may be the case, what do you think the revolutionized Education system should be like? What is your idea of a better educational system? And what do you think are the deficiencies in the current system? What should we, as a society, expect from Education system?
Education is an ongoing process. But education system does not seem to encourage this process. As Sir Ken Robinson has pointed out in this talk, is it not that aim of this education system is to create employees? Is it not that the education system reflects what we as a society put emphasis on[?] Perhaps it is time that we should get out of temporary influences and create education system that would not be an end unto itself but a stepping stone for a more evolved life.
What then do you think we must include in such a system? What should its characteristics be like? What should it must have and what should it must not include? Your thoughts on education system..Discuss!"

Anyway, The credit of the writing goes to Dipraj Zagade, tedster. I paste it here as I trust his words can better put this issue that we all concerns and resonates deeply in sentence than I can.

The related talk by Sir Ken Robinson on "Bring on the learning revolution" and his other talks are among the most inspiring talks I've ever watched and I hope they would inspire you too. He's quite funny as well...Enjoy!

It should be student driven. Mentors should be available to kids to expose them to things they would not have discovered by themselves. Mentors should also be available to provide basic forms of help in achiving the childs education goals - and perhaps to provide some structure and regimentation if the child requests it. Education should be provided at home or in an educational institution that respects the child. Sudbury is an example of this kind of institution.

Well, I think that the training should be such that it does not take very long. You can use the real Essay Viking ( https://essayvikings.com... ) to free some of the time, but there is still too many chebs. We must enjoy life, not spend it all for study.

Well, new text books for one. For most schools, text books should be replaced/updated every three something years; they'll stretch it by a couple more years to save on money or because they simple can't afford it.

Not my school. In Oklahoma, which is the leading state in annual budget cuts for the education system since the 2008 recession and still continues to cut money from school funding, we get nine+ year old text books held together by duct tape.

In Oklahoma, we've had a recent paper shortage where my school went so far as to rely on the students to provide them paper. When we finally were able to order some, a little bundle not even enough to supply the whole school, there was about a month left of school.

Paper, a necessity for students, should be available year-round along with text books that have more accurate information.

Along with a lack of paper, we also have a lack of teachers, but that's a whole new topic right there. Google it or view my sources down below.

It's not just Oklahoma, though. Dozens of states continue to cut school budgets every year since the 2008 recession when it's not needed. Only Arizona, Idaho, and Utah have Oklahoma beat in how little they invest in each individual student.

Utah, for example, spends roughly $6,500 for one student. In Wyoming, they spend an average of $15,797 for one student, and that's not even getting to states like Vermont, Connecticut, D.C, New Jersey, and New York, who spends $16,988, $17,745, $18,485, $17,907, and $20,610 respectively.

Students, no matter where they're born, should get equal opportunity. Do those numbers up above tell you its same for everyone?

If the scientific evidence showed that the Judeo-Christian God existed, would you pursue a relationship with him to obtain salvation?
