Sad, pathetic and the syllabus and books have been written by people who are from another century and are not in touch with reality. Our children are like parrots our teachers are also parrots...they all come with unutilized brains as they are never put to use. The teachers are uneducated, uninterested and unfit to do this work. The standards of teachers and educational institutions have to be raised to a much higher level. It is pathetic at the moment and no work seems to be done to improve it. Stop going back to same old babus and medieval educational experts - sack the bunch ... we need our children to be moved to this century and that needs a total revamp of our education system.
