Suffocating education suffocates growth, lazy teaching and rote-based themes cutting off the birth of new ideas and new possibilities. It’s essential our pedagogy enters a freer world of what good education is really about.
According to the FICCI-EY report Employability of graduates big concern in India. While the Indian higher education system has made considerable progress in terms of capacity creation and enrolment in the last decade, it lags significantly in terms of global relevance and competitiveness. Low employability of graduates is driven by factors like out-dated curricula, shortage of quality faculty, high student-teacher ratios, lack of institutional and industry linkages and lack of autonomy to introduce new and innovative courses. Only a small proportion of Indian graduates are considered employable.
There is a missing research focus and culture in most institutions. It further added that there is a limited focus on entrepreneurship on campuses reflected in the fact that there are few institutes that offer programmes in entrepreneurship and have active incubation/entrepreneurship cells.
