32% of children in India drop out of school because they think education is unnecessary. 77% of children enrol in class 10, but enrolment in class 11 drops to an alarming 52%. As you can imagine the outcomes, 47% of graduates in India are not employable for any industry role even though only 22% of employers design domain expertise.
Academics cannot suffice for survival in the 21st century. The education system needs to take a holistic development approach to prepare kids for the practical world.
Every child has a dream, to pursue the dream in every child’s hand to make it reality. One invention is another’s tool.
“When children are encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art they develop a sense of innovation that will help produce the kind of people that society needs to take it forward thinking incentive and creative.” -APJ Abdul Kalam
Creativity is the key to success in the future, and primary education is where teachers can bring creativity in children at that level.
