Forget India’s Ivy League. Teach your children well
Expecting children to attain quality education without key learning skills is like wanting a child to run even before she learns to walk
Quality education and learning has the power to transform an individual’s life by raising aspirations and by providing opportunities needed to convert those aspirations into reality. Understandably then, for India, the youngest country in the world with 200 million children in the 6-14 age group, this very power of good education and learning is massive. What is equally important to understand about education is that the actual gains from it accrue only when a child gets good learning and not just schooling. Low levels of learning outcomes in schools is a huge barrier that is pulling down India’s human capital potential.
