Should debate on education be skill-based rather than knowledge-based?

  • Education is more important but skill is most important

    It is true Our young generation needs to be skilled in order to get employment.It is very much important to get skills and only then we can think of a bright future of a country. Nowadays we usually face this problems that a person is knowledgeable but not skilled enough to do a particular job.

  • Education should be skilled based rather than knowledge based

    In a class all the students may not be excellent in their studies alone so they have other projects in which the weaker students can come up . In our society it is not only knowledge that matters but if u have the skill to do something u can guarantee work

  • Skilled based education

    Yes i support the motion that education should be skilled based rather than knowledge based because the education which does not give any advantage so what is need of that education if a person can do well in skilled based education so he must support the topic skilled based education

  • Yes it's true

    The majority of jobs are in the skilled trades, yet it wouldn’t be hard to build programs
    around the needs of information technology companies, tech start-ups and 21st century
    manufacturing firms. With a strong network of community colleges and online schools and a
    diverse industry base here in Kansas City, our leaders should be making connections with
    initiatives such as Skills for America’s Future a top priority.

  • Debates are mandatory

    Debates are mandatory because today if we have only knowledge its equivalent to having nothing . Todays job industry is mainly focussing on skill based people who can bring success and will prosper with help of skill. I am not saying that education is useless it is usefull but only with the skill to apply them

  • It is true

    Our young generation needs to be skilled in order to get employment.It is very much important to get skills and only then we can think of a bright future of a country. Nowadays we usually face this problems that a person is knowledgeable but not skilled enough to do a particular job.

  • Vocational skills need to be encouraged.

    If the argument is that we should teach more vocational skills in school, then I support that. I see no reason to say the current school system is at all effective. For starters we need to encourage individual initiative, where students who try hard whether academically, vocationally, socially or physically are both looked at in high regard. While those who may not succeed in these categories are encouraged to try harder, possibly through taking courses more centered on these skills. I also say we teach kids more day-to-day skills and knowledge, such as how mortgages work and easy ways to pay them off, sure these kind of things may be talked about now but if we emphasize them then students would be a lot better off in life after high school.

  • Skill based education heps in incresing mental growth

    Nowadays most of the students are getting top class education from childhood itself.But due to their lack of skill in many fields they are not able to make use of the education they got.Knowledge based eduction play a major role in making a student a "BOOK WORM".But skilled based education helps a student in thinking well and taking better choices in his future which result in the improved growth of mental ability

  • Education should be practical based rather than knowledge based.

    EVERYONE IS NOT SAME,
    EVERYONE DOESN'T HAVE AN INTELLIGENT MIND.
    So why school wants the students just to read books??
    By this only the intelligent students or the book worms will come forward, but what about the ones who are unable to understand that particular topic just by reading?
    If those students will have the session practically then they will understand better.
    AS YOU ALL KNOW THAT WE LEARN A WHOLE MOVIE STORY JUST BY WATCHING IT ONCE
    BUT
    BY READING THE SAME STORY ONCE WILL NOT GIVE THE ACTUAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE PARTICULAR TOPIC.
    An intelligent student who is comfortable just in reading books,
    can also study practically.
    BUT
    a student who learns better practically,
    will not be able to study properly just by reading.
    So, education should be skill based rather than knowledge based so that it will be easy for all students to study faster and understand better.

  • Knowledge based education gives us a fair idea of all options of subjects

    From years our school follow knowledge based education as we young cannot choose their career without any advice. Knowledge based education gives us fair idea of all subjects and topics which are avail to us and can be taken up as a topic for the career. For example if we do not know what are topics which we can take up as a career and we study only one subject to be wholly skilled in it we might take a wrong decision

  • I m against d motion

    Skill based education is meant for the working adults, who needs it for increasing thier productivity....But education which is knowledge based , helps in satisfying the thirst of the knowledge in the students and it also iz meant for increasing the students knowledge starving brain.....It what the skiled based education does....

  • Knowledge is most important.

    And that is the only difference between a mechanic and an engineer, a mechanic has skills but no formal knowledge but an engineer has knowledge and skills he earns from his experience being professional and that is the reason why engineers are more demanded than mechanics and are more successful.

  • Education should be knowledge based rather than skill based

    Knowledge is something we acquire from reading and learning from our environment. But, skill is something which we acquire by experience. Actually speaking for a skill to be done successfully knowledge is the key and is a base. For example when we join a company the first thing the members of the company test is knowledge by conducting an interview.

  • Education is Important

    Suppose you are a teacher.You have lot much of teaching skills,but you don't have knowledge about the subject you are teaching.Then how would you teach.Also if you want job in any company then you have to show how much knowledge you have acquired,what degree you have.Without degree no one would give you job even you are enough skilled in that subject.And to develop a skill you need to acquire knowledge.No one can help you if you have only skill and no knowledge.

  • Knowledge is important to perform a skill

    To perform a simple skill a minimum of knowledge is required. We can take a simple example - in a cottage industry to make bamboo mats or bowls people should have a knowledge of which bamboo should be selected and which instruments are used to cut the bamboo. Therefore i conclude by saying that skill is important but to perform that skill knowledge is more important.

  • Knowledge means familiarity with anything.....

    Skill based knowledge is necessary but it doesn't means that knowledge isn't important. Any skills taught would have to be taught through a medium which include knowledge. Knowledge plays a vital role in the decision making process. If you have complete knowledge you can easily make correct decisions in life. Without knowledge it becomes hard to deal with people or circumstances...

  • I am against these

    As knowledge is the only the way to encourage the skill of a person. Knowledge is the key to success
    I also agree with the fact that skill and hard work is the key to sucess. But still knowledge is the source of in builting the qualities of leadership. Knowledge makes us great and greatness ia a journey that begins with impossible and turns into unforgottable.

  • I really do not support this motion

    How , do all those who support this motion expect the educational authorities to cope up with the number of jobs there are in the field ? The funding needs to be much higher , for which we do not have the resources.
    They say that the system is flawed . I say , the one person who actually has the capacity to think will make a way for himself to succeed using this same system of education .
    Once you accomplish that , i'd like to see you try and change the way things work...

  • No it should not.

    Debating skills are important....No doubt very important but still debating a subject without its knowledge is not justifiable...We will make a fool of ourselves it will be same like we blame the politicians that they do not know about the problems of the public so how can they help us....Just like that how can a person debate a topic correctly without its knowledge.
