Speaking at BW Education B-School excellence conclave in Delhi today, Mos- HRD, Dr. Satya Pal Singh said that education's purpose is to make a person a good human first.
Dr. Singh presented his views on the education system of the country where he said that Indian education sector needs to be overhauled and for achieving this, he mentioned that his government is in a process of changing education policy entirely.
The minister said that through his past experience as a police commissioner, he found out that more suicides take place than murders and out of which mostly are educated students.
He mentioned that in India, only 25-26% people have an access to higher education and the government is taking coercive measures to improve this percentage. Dr. Singh reiterated that in India, we need a better condition of our government schools and colleges because not many can afford private education.
Dr. Singh also stressed that we need to train our teachers to improve the quality of our education output. With a shortage of teaching faculty, he said we cannot even blame our existing staff members and academic personnel.
According to Minister Singh, the main objective of education is to produce good humans. He also spoke about the quality of Indian research and publication and said that academics are now only determined to hold conferences and seminars because it helps their appraisal a boost and the research done by Indian authors probably is not worthy of any praise.
