It is our firm belief that most of India’s problems have their origin in a faulty education system. A nation should develop and progress on its own strength. If it does not, the population as a whole must be having some deficiency in skills and knowledge and therefore needs to be equipped with skills to manage its own progress.
This includes overcoming all difficulties, including finance, social disharmony and technical backwardness. A nation where only a small fraction of the society has this ability cannot progress. Only when this skill permeates the bulk of the society will it achieve sustainable progress.
In this sense, our education system has failed and we need to redefine the system so that the vast majority of the population acquires through education, the ability to solve its own problems and progress with confidence. We get a wrong impression of the efficiency of our education system because a few have achieved outstanding successes in Science & Technology.
How much faster would India progress if many of the present dropouts were also to get a proper (not by today’s definition) education, that would give them the ability to learn, think and act by themselves. To get such an education system is the goal of Institute of Skill Development & Training. We also believe that rural development and education are integrated. Motto of ISDE is “Education through Development and Development through Education”.
