Education Difference in the US and in India Have ever did comparison in education between in your country and in the US? Each country has own education rules and it may differ than any other country. India is my native country, and India has same courses as the US has. However, many courses in colleges/universities are the same as in the US, there are three differences in education system. First in India, students have to choose their major in 10th grade, unlike in the US. In India students have to choose one option in between three for their major. Three majors are science, commerce, and arts. In science there are also 2 options they have to choose one is math and other is biology. After choose your major after 10th grade, they continues their education with chosen major in 11th and 12th grade. After completed high school they can choose any degree related their major. For example, my friend took major in biology, science, so she can choose any doctoral course/degree related as long as biology. She chose pharmacy and now she is a pharmacist in well-known drugs company in India. On the other hand in the US students have to choose their major after 12th grade in college. They can choose any major as they want. However, in India students cannot choose other degree which is not related to their major. For example, science student cannot choose degree in commerce like b.a or b.com. In short, In India students have to choose their major after 10th class, unlike the students in the US.
Second major difference is students cannot choose their class schedule in India, on the other hand In the US students can choose whatever class time and day as suitable for them. In India, students don't have to choose how many classes they want in semester, and what time they can come for classes. It is already fixed in India with degree or courses. For example, in engineering there is fix 7 semester for bachelor degree. Moreover,...
... Education in Emerging India
Meaning of education
1.Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Education is commonly divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, secondary school and then college, university or apprenticeship.
2. (by j.parankimalil) Education is a systematic process through which a child or an adult acquires knowledge, experience, skill and sound attitude. It makes an individual civilized, refined, cultured and educated. For a civilized and socialized society, education is the only means. Its goal is to make an individual perfect. Every society gives importance to education because it is a panacea for all evils. It is the key to solve the various problems of life.
Since time immemorial, education is estimated as the right road to progress and prosperity. Different educationists’ thoughts from both Eastern and Western side have explained the term ‘education’ according to the need of the...
...should we tolerate, the outcomes of our fragmented health care system. We need to move away from a cottage industry in which providers have no relationship with, or accountability to, one another. Though we acknowledge that creating a more organized delivery system will be difficult, the recommendations put forth in this report offer a concrete approach to stimulate greater organization for higher performance. (A. Shih, 2008)
In India, Primary Health Centers (PHCs) are the cornerstone of rural healthcare; a first port of call for the sick and an effective referral system; in addition to being the main focus of social and economic development of the community. It forms the first level of contact and a link between individuals and the national health system; bringing healthcare delivery as close as possible to where people live and work. (Patel, 2005)
Primary healthcare services substantially affects the general health of a population, however many factors undermine the quality and efficiency of primary healthcare services in developing countries. In India, although there are many reasons for poor PHC performance, almost all of them stem from weak stewardship of the sector, which produces a poor incentive framework. The World Health Organization (WHO) specifically points out that to some extent, the deterioration in health status is attributed to inadequacies in PHC implementation, neglecting the wider factors that have been responsible for...
Chinese Tiger Moms versus American Values
Today people have different cultures, a lot of different meanings and a lot of different views on how to raise a child. People from America have a more causal view opposite people from China. In China people are used to a stricter upbringing. All over the world, people are different and have different opinions about how a child shut be raised.
As mentioned above, People from America have a more causal view opposite people from China. Parenting in China is mostly very strict, and these Asian children are mostly become very successful in school and in the business.
An example of strict parenting is able to find in the very notorious book “Chinese Tiger Moms” by Amy Chua. It is a very controversial book, where Amy Chua explains how she raised her children “the Chinese way” in America. It’s about a mom who raises her children and afterwards become the Tiger mom.
Amy Chua’s children were not allowed to watch TV or play Computer games. They were also not allowed to have play dates or sleepovers. They also had to play violin or Piano. If Amy Chua’s children said “they could not do something”, Amy Chua command, them to do it until they were very good at it. In school they were not allowed to get a grade under “A”, and if that happened it would be considered as a bad grade and they will get a punishment. Amy Chua calls this Chinese style parenting. If you look at the success...
Every single one on earth agrees with the point that education is the key to be successful. With that in mind, no one disagree that education plays an important role in a country’s improvement progress. Although, education became the main focus in each country, but they all have different education system. I was born in China, and went to school in my homeland, and was lucky enough to have a chance to begin my middle school life in United State. In my point of view, there are two main differences between Chinese education and American education. The first difference between these two countries is class set out. In China, we have fix class, which let students stay in only one class for rest the day. We also have a head teacher serves as our counselor who takes care of basic items for us. It’s easy for head teacher to control students under a fix class since each of them only take care one class. Head teacher can easily take attendance and memorize all the students in his or her class. Unlike China, America has open class, which let students switch their class with their personal schedule during the passing time. Students may have new classmates in each class, within this class set out; students can work with more people. As a result, students can develop their relationships well with other people....
...Education in India
Creating Qualification, But No Quality
Ravali Rupaa Amba
India fascinates people world over with its diversity and with the extreme contrasts in lives of people. Indian education scenario which also paints the same contrasted picture has gained world recognition. Many foreign nationals are considering India for higher education. Although illiteracy is a haunting problem inIndia the vast talent pool in the country never ceases to amaze people. To reach this position from the days of gurukul system - which although was a very efficient way of imparting knowledge, did great wrong to the oppressed classes - was no piece of cake. Our education system underwent tremendous changes and requires more changes especially in the quality of education to accelerate the rate at which India is growing. After independence education for all was the aim of the government. The unhealthy practice of discrimination was done away by the 86th Constitutional Amendment and education has been made compulsory for the age group 6 to 14. However, the efforts of improving the standards of Indian Education are not meeting with success, due to hurdles like accessibility, poverty, corruption and other factors. The quality of education is being compromised. The issues that are negatively...
...EDUCATION IN INDIA AND CURRENT YOUTH SITUATION
This essay is from the experience on the field which I have faced during the field work in various schools. This report contains the present condition of schools in Tamilnadu. This will also showcase the problems that students face in the name of education and also how the powerful Media acts as a barrier for the Education.
Education is now said to be one of the primary needs of the society. There was a huge reverse when some leaders like Mr. Kamaraj took over the position of Chief Minister. The Mid-day meals scheme is one of the best schemes in the country which was an initiative by Mr.Kamaraj. But now due to different discriminations and other deviations, education is now becoming a business and privatization works in here too.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” says Nelson Mandela but now education has become a business to earn money at large.
Education is now becoming a dream for many poor youngsters. The students who are enrolling with the higher studies after their higher secondary schooling is rather so low comparing to school education. Government has brought compulsory pass scheme till 8th standard in all the schools all over the state though it creates interest on education to some deprived students it...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.
Science and Play
Play pedagogy is a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they engage actively with people, objects and representations. Research shows...
...The Education Dilemma & a Finnish Solution
Twenty years ago America lead the world in education. Although, US universities still rank among the best in the world Americas grade schools no longer do so well. American students currently rank 31st in math, 17th in Science and 14th in reading (PISA) . These rankings are acquired through an international exam called the Programme for International Student Assessment or commonly called the PISA. As American students plummet further and further behind other developed countries professionals and parents alike are questioning what we could possibly do to reverse this dangerous trend; If not America's future is certainly grim, but the education dilemma does have promising solutions. When examining other countries who produce students who excel in these subjects it is only right to look toward the shining gem of the world's education systems, Finland. Their students currently rank 6th in the world in math, 2nd in science and 3rd in reading (PISA). Finlands schooling system presents many examples of how we can improve student learning and progress. By making simple changes and using Finland as a role model there is much hope for future American students to climb back up the worlds academic ladder once more.
The best place to start in education is always with the students themselves. There is much to learn from the incite of youth and American...
