Teacher's day: Our education system. What is wrong with it?

I love teaching!

I feel very sad to say that our education system is sorry state of affairs. Especially if we talk about private engineering colleges the future looks bleak. I can say this because I have worked in this so called 'education industry' for about a year. Seriously things are not so good.

Let me give you a list of what were my observations  of various polytechnic colleges:
  1. Firstly, the quality of students is not at all good.
  2. Teachers are not paid well
  3. Focus on theory and practicals neglected
  4. Teacher training is just a formality. Knowledge gained is poor.
  5. Student fees are hefty
  6. College administration is pathetic
  7. There is a lot of paper work for teachers
  8. Technology assisted learning is not paid any attention in many colleges 
  9. Parents hardly know what is going on
These are the complaints that everyone makes. Well, let me clear that I am not talking about the IITs and NITs in which all 'bright' students go. The problems I observed are specifically related to private engineering and polytechnic colleges.

So, what is the solution? What can we do to make a difference?

Quantitative Aptitude

Hey guys! How are you all?

I have been busy lately with an amazing project in partnership with Mentorsnet.org which is a very nice platform for e-learning.

I recorded a whopping 230 videos for the course named Quantitative Aptitude. The course has gone live now! And Mentorsnet has added a number of quizzes and practice questions.

I hope that numerous students who are tirelessly preparing for campus placements benefit from this course.
