Given a chance to design Indian Education system, How would you do that?

Answer by Ashutosh Kumar Upadhyay:

Two main changes :
1. "How to teach"
2. Memory based examination pattern.

I think all changes will automatically follow.

How to teach: From class 1, we do "what to teach" and told to children "what to learn". We have never told to children "How to learn". We expect them to be encyclopedia rather than a innovator or thinker. This should be changed. Student centred teaching method should be applied and mandatory for all schools and colleges.…(Ashutosh Kumar Upadhyay's answer to What is the worst thing that can happen in life?)

Memory based examination system: The examination pattern should be changed. Instead of evaluating students, it should increase the creativity and problem solving skills through different ideas. Putting the bookish text, should lead to zero marking – and putting/giving own efforts and ideas should be encouraged by giving full marking. One thing should be cleared- Examination should not for evaluation of memory, but for evolution of ideas. Student should learn that Life is not for short time race with memory based teaching and examination, but it is long time enjoyment with creativity and innovation.
