Indian Education Sector Needs a Relook

Indian Education Sector needs a relook

The growth of a country is synonymous with the growth of its youth.

The youth defines the path of growth for any country. They need proper education, So the youth of the country needs to be looked after properly. A country like India, where over 50 percent of the 1.3billion population is youth, the care for youth becomes mandatory.

Yet, the question arises, are we doing enough for them? Are we taking care of their growing requirements too?

Well, the answer is no! No, we are not taking good care of our youth. Their health, education, etc. are not being taken care of adequately. We are not doing enough to get them ready for the future.

Our education system is based on thoughts of – “Monitoring – Inspection- Suspension.” This needs to be changed to “Enable- Empower- Inspire.”

Over the last century or so, the Indian education system is still the same in its thoughts. Indian teaching methodology has not changed much since the industrial age. Our education system calls for reforms, which will make it apt for future generations. These reforms should be based on the rigorous sample-based learning & assessment of children. Reforms should aim to develop their skills to make them ready for the future.

As Plato said, ‘Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.’

Education must reflect the transformational changes in our life – the way we communicate, collaborate, think, work, network, and celebrate. This change will come when we make changes in our thoughts. These changes are possible only when you let edupreneurs grow.

There are many who are interested in bringing quality education within the reach of eager students but are unable to do so because of the hardships they face in opening a school.  Hardships, like getting approval for opening school, designing the curriculum, recruiting qualified staff etc.

These tasks prevent private investors from investing in schools. They face difficulty in all these areas.

To resolve this very issue Shri Educare Limited has put together a team of experts to support and coach this segment of edupreneurs

They support you in Curriculum design, Human Resource Recruitment, Handling Financial aspects and creating a right mix of plans & policies related to the smooth functioning of school that are the basic requirements for opening an ideal school.

Education System – Problems & Solutions

Education is the foundation of any country’s economy. A country where the education system is not in place, lags in every way. The same thing is happening in our country India. India as a country faces many problems in the educational system. Today we are going to list down some of the problems that we have identified in our education system.

“Rattafying”or the rote learning process – this Hinglish word easily define the state of Indian education system. Students in our education system are compelled to rote learn in order to score high marks. The system sadly does not focus on strengthening and clearing the concepts.

Insufficient Infrastructure— poor infrastructure & lack of facilities are reasons for the low turnout of students in schools. Students, especially girls, do not prefer to go to schools.Basic necessities, such as clean and hygienic drinking water and separate toilets for boys and girls, are not available in many of the school, even in urban India

Teacher selection criteria– in most of our schools the teacher’s selection& recruitment process is non-merit based. They are selected as per the choice of selectors.Lack of proper academic qualifications and competency in pedagogy are another challenge.

Poor Teacher-student ratio – Huge no. of students in a class are tackled by a single teacher, which leads to less focus on each child. In addition, students are not encouraged to ask questions or clarify their doubts.

Shortage of training— no or very less emphasis is given to teacher training in our schools. This is a major reason why our teachers are not aware of new developments in the field of education.

No emphasis on creativity— our education system focuses on quantity rather than quality. Getting high marks by hook or crook is the only aim of the students; they are not bothered about conceptual understanding or developing critical and creative thinking. This restricts the growth of their mind.

These are some issues, that our educational system is facing nowadays, which need to be resolved and removed from our system. If not completely, then at least some percentage of it can be removed by opening schools which focus on providing progressive quality education to students.

If merit-based teacher selection, output-oriented study, concept clarity of students are treated as important factors,  then we can think of bringing change in our education system. Opening schools where the focus is on providing an excellent education to students will ease the course of action. However, opening a school is not an easy job at all.

You need many things like funds, land, getting approvals from authorities, designing architecture, expertise to create curriculum, etc. Not all these expert knowledge is available with a single person. School Consultancy service plays an important role in this tricky situation. Shri Educare is one such organization, which will help you in realizing the dream of opening such a school.

Own School Or Franchise? What Top School Consultants Suggest

“India is carving a niche in the global education industry and has more than 1.4 million schools.”

However, there is still a lot of potential India holds for further development in the education system.

Every day, my inbox gets flooded with numerous messages and the requests from people who are looking for ways to start their own educational startup with a school but get confused between what is meant by own school or franchise school.

This dilemma often leads to confusion and an effective school fails to come into existence.

To help you understand the concept behind both the aspects, I have brought posted this today so that you can understand what exactly a complete package of these aspects would contain.

Starting Your OWN School

The very idea of starting your dream project is nothing less than a magical journey, since you know the potential the schools have in their foundation, and apart from the monetary benefits, the strong platform you offer to the next generation.

Eventually, starting an independent school is synonymous to start a new business from scratch, A plethora of opportunities for various talents and skills starting come onboard, Being a recession-free sector, it is a great idea to start a school.

Something that stops the edupreneur is the lengthy and challenging process, but other lucrative aspects in this venture encourage them further, and it has boosted a lot of investors to come forward to invest in a school.

Bearing in mind the benefits of starting a school, you must not forget that there comes a huge amount of responsibilities as well along with it.

Take a look at the pros and cons of starting a school.

PROS

  • It is a rewarding and profitable venture since it requires a one-time investment.
  • It promises the long-term profits.
  • It offers a sense of satisfaction by serving the society at large.
  • It involves the least number of formalities to kick-start the venture compared to any other business venture.

CONS

  • You need to take care of finances, marketing, recruiting, training, drafting the curriculum etc. on your own, to avoid the additional expenses at the initial stage.
  • The number of admissions varies from year to year and depends largely on the popularity and credibility you have built.
  • Competition is HUGE in this field, and it is not going to be just from the existing, but also from the upcoming ventures as well.
  • The permission-granting process from various institutions is a very tedious and time-consuming task.

Buying A School Franchise

On the other hand, buying or running a franchise is considered a rewarding personal journey, but it has its own set of obstacles and challenges as well.

Hence, we suggest you weigh and analyze both the pros and cons of getting a school franchise.

PROS

  • Being associated with an established brand name reduces the cost of initial setup and promotion.
  • This model gives less number of financial risk since you are carrying forward the existing brand identity.
  • You get a ready-made curriculum and designed syllabus.
  • You receive initial training, ongoing support and continued inputs to ensure the development of the school.

CONS

  • There is a lack of flexibility and you need to adhere to the rules set by the governing educational institution.
  • You have to pay a license fee, training costs, advertising charges, franchise fee, royalty, annually.
  • There is a huge risk of losing the branding, if any branch attains public attention, due to any wrong reason.

The education sector is proceeding further with prolific growth and either of the options is not free from its own set of advantages and risk factors. You need to be wise enough to pick the best choice for your concept venture.

But, unless you have the guidance from an expert school consultant in India to ensure that the selected option is a comprehensive solution for you to set up a new school, you would always end up picking the wrong option for your venture.

Hence, it is not advice, but it is highly recommended that you get the services from one of the best school consultants in India. However is it really that easy to get these services from a professional consultancy firm???

I know it is a hard nut to crack, to get a dedicated and genuine school consultant in India.

Pre-Schools In India – The Road Ahead – A blog by Shri Educare

Pre Schools In India

Children between the ages of 3-6yrs are like sponges who can absorb much more than what parents can imagine. This time should be utilized to equip the little ones with skills, which they might need in later stages of life. How to give them the required knowledge, skills for the life ahead? At this time, Pre-schools come in handy, but what is Preschool?

As per Wikipedia, “A preschool, also known as nursery school, pre-primary school, playschool, or kindergarten, is an educational establishment or learning space offering early childhood education to children before they begin compulsory education at primary school.”

India has many Preschools. The concept of pre-schooling evolved in India a couple of decades back and has been developing fast in the current scenario. Rising awareness about early childhood education & care along with increasing number of nuclear families & working women population are some of the reasons of the increasing popularity of Pre Schools.

With the effect of urbanization, increase in brand consciousness and penetration of many international preschools in the country, parents are aware of what they want for their children and how they want to shape their future too.

This has consequently resulted in the emergence of innovative and advanced infrastructure as well as quality education in the preschools across the country.

While there are many preschools across various regions in India, very few come under the organized sector, which provides quality education. One of these is The Shri Ram Wonder Years. TSWY is an institution, which engages learners in a joyful, nurturing, and progressive environment.

Shri Educare Limited (SEL) has been engaged in providing 360-degree school consultancy services for (Pre-school, K12) in India and abroad.
