Third rate Indian education


Around 20% of PhD and Masters graduates in American universities are Indians. Not just that these people are punching far above their weight compared to other communities in USA such as Blacks or Hispanics or even white people.

Back home however, Indian education is pretty pathetic. The recent report ranked Indian students at 2nd place from bottom .

Fifteen-year-old Indians who were put, for the first time, on a global stage stood second to last, only beating Kyrgyzstan when tested on their reading, math and science abilities.

India ranked second last among the 73 countries that participated in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), conducted annually to evaluate education systems worldwide by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) Secretariat. The survey is based on two-hour tests that half a million students are put through.

All that Make in India bullshit will be bullshit if Indian education remains third rate. In last 60 years absolutely nothing has changed in education and there is very little hope that anything will change.
