I think it really is. The teachers think that finishing the syllabus is their only job and the parents think that their only job is to push the kids to come first. what they don't understand is that not everyone can come first. Moreover the teachers' attitude towards the syllabus does not lead to real learning. Thus the children are deprived of real learning and they resort to cramming the portion , even science and maths. Thus today all students have only one aim : to score good marks, which is not correct thereby leading to a rat race without much learning.

Yes, it is. We are witnessing so many suicides by teenagers,students in India. Obviously, the students today are finding it difficult to cope up with the pressure of studies. The school education module needs urgent changes, may be we can adopt the western module where there is a fine balance between studies & sports and studies & other extra- curricular activities with an aim to stress on all round development of the younger generation. The sooner the better.

ABHIBRATA

Yes it is true. Our education is becoming a rat race in India. Being an an engineering student under WBUT I face that our current syllabus is too much large and in some subjects like electro magnetic theory, analog communication is too large to finish just in a semester.

ROHIT

Yes I do feel that education more than just imparting knowledge is becoming a rat race in India. The huge syllabus most of which is completely irrelevent in today's world and at this age, is creating a lot of stress among students.

A very obvious question with an equally obvious answer. Yes! I would agree with all of you that education HAS become a rat race. Students set role models at a very early age, which is good, but what is bad is that they get easily influenced by them. They prefer to do/ learn skills that have made their 'idol' achieve success, but forget that there is some inbuilt quality in them which needs to be nurtured to achieve success. As soon as a child is born, the parents also start setting targets for him/her to accomplish. Everyone wants their child to be the best in the world, but such parents have to be reminded that every child is different with a different set of interests, after all, there is no shoe that fits all sizes. In order to fulfill their parents dreams, students slog and forget to enjoy. They keep doing/ learning things that they are least interested in because that particular skill got success to some other individual, either a relative, friend or neighbour. Today we see every individual becoming either an engineer or a doctor and considering all other professions meagre. CAT , IIT or MBBA entrance exams have become a national pastimes. Everyone gives them and the irony is that most of them are sure that, depending upon the amount of knowledge they have in that area, their chances of selection are very less, but still they give it because they believe that in such objective type exams, there is some element of luck which can help them clear the written test. But what after that, frustration, drug addiction and ultimately suicide? This is not the way of life. We should be fortunate to have born, many don't even get that opportunity. We should try to enjoy every minute and pursue only those interests which we are good at so that we improve in it and become capable of competing with the best of the world. As a great individual correctly said, " The moment you think that some task is difficult, you are sure to be interrupted by somebody doing it. " Follow your dreams and you are sure to achieve success. Good luck.

THAT IS RIGHT EDUCTION HAVE BECOME RACE . A BIG RACE PARENTS FORCE CHILDREN TO BECOME DOCTOR ,IAS.IPPS.C.A,IITIAN .BUT IN THIS CHILDREN FORGET THEIR DREAMS THEIR REAL DREAM PARENTS START FORCING THEIR CHILDREN WHEN THEY ARE JUST IN 5TH STANDARD AND CHILDREN ARE NOT ALSO ABLE TO ENJOY THEIR CHILDHOOD.

AJAY KUMAR

I support this statement a lot as parents are actually forcing their kids to make their dream come true by neglecting their child's ambition and wishes!!! Moreover, beacuse of this very reason the number of suicides committed by students is most in India. Each child has his/her own interest and they have to b allowed to work in their field of interest. We have to live our life which cannot be according to the wishes of our parents. We can never be happy if we have chosen the field which our parents want us to take.

OSIN ROY

yep! education has infact become a rat race. students run behind success instead of excellence...they mug up their syllabus nd score good marks and if they dont then they are out of the picture!
