Our current education system is not focusing on producing thinkers. It is mostly producing crammers…
Education means gaining knowledge as well as the necessary skills to apply this knowledge.
It means framing our own beliefs based on a given logic. It means using logic, experience, and personal beliefs to frame opinions and further guide us in making decisions. It also means broadening our perspective and changing our beliefs with time, if necessary. But are we really gaining any of these significant skills??
I personally believe that we can\’t completely quantify knowledge. Moreover, a child may be good at one subject or a given area but might not be as competent in other areas. We cannot be good at everything. We all have our limitations. Therefore, holistic education might be the solution.
