2 answers.

The present education system fosters mediocrity among students. It does not give the opportunity to the students to show their capability to the fullest. It caters to average IQ level students only. It does not recognize the brilliance of the students. The tests conducted check the academic performance of the student only. Therefore overall assessments needs to be conducted to bring out the originality and creativity of the students.

To day especially in kerala the students too eligible to analyze the major problems and sometimes they will react quitely or in way of good manner.sometimes schools may curb the individual talents but 'subordination of individual interest to generala interest' is a natural fact but besides of these i strongly appeal that India is coming back to her old execellency of education.
