We need lot of improvement.
Our education system produces a large Mob - who due to lack of practical knowledge - some times do not know a single professional task - which can be handled by them even after graduation.
Education system in India is run by government.
India has a great elementary education system established during British rule - which miss out Local Touch and again unfortunately the emphasis has always been on Math and Science.
Unlike the west where students are encouraged to participate, most Indian schools just shove the course work in a rather subjective manner.
Similarly for Higher education (Professional courses) education quality is not good due to lack of competent faculty and research.
Indians are no less smart than any other group. Indians are poor because they lack freedom to act, to perform to the best of their abilities. Bureaucracy rules in the Indian school system.

Yes, the educational reforms are immediately needed in this country. The entire system of education in India has gone haywire.
Education, right from the primary level to the universities, no more attracts the kind of talent that needs to be there. The working conditions are horrible. The educational institutions have been highly poticised. The basic structure is lacking in most of the educational institutions.
The fee structure has made the education beyond the reach of a vast majority of people. The syllabi need to be rationalised in tune with the requirements of the times.
A decent and reasonable status for the teachers at all levels, economically and otherwise, is a must to make the system deliver.

Yes we need educational refromation in India as the nature of our education system is rote and marks based. student, teachers and parents are more worried about the marks students will get.the concept building has completly died down.this was researched and published in educational initiatives survey with India Today. the details could be read at www.ei-india.com.In this regard they say no single intervention by itself will bring about a step change in the quality of learning. A combination of several factors is required.
Assessment methods to assess the level of learning happening in the class
Organizing curriculum and instruction with the objective of achieving real learning (including teacher training to make this possible)
Leadership at school level (Principals, Teachers, Administrators) and Govt. level (Policy Makers, Boards, and other Govt. Bodies). Examples abound of individual schools with poor infrastructure and resources, who are far ahead of better equipped schools when ...more

Yes we do.
Study and Books should be limited to the classroom. That's 5 hours to learning.
The balance half of the day should be alloted to the child for developing themselves be it in sports, music etc.
We need to give the future generation a chance for overall develipment of themselves.

Education should be completely revamped. Changes should be made from grass root levels. Its good to have mother tongue taught in schools but it should be one subject and the toughest one of all, where by if the child fails than detained, but not all subjects whereby the child once moves to higher education, is capable of understanding the english language which is used for communicating. As all higher educations are in the english language which is universally understood. We have our leaders who impose mother tongue on poor people and send their children abroad for education, what hypocracy. We should have counseling centers from 9th standard onwards so that once one clears the SSC, one knows what one has to do, which line one is good at. The reservations should be strictily on merit basis. First preference to be given to SC/ST but 100 percent Merit and no favouritisms.
