Our education system
We as a nation live in opium eater paradise. Following the trodden path, never daring to look for digression, innovation is something alien to us. Either we are tradition loving people or we have no guts to explore the horizon for our best. I think later is defining us. Complacency has brought us to the verge of collapse. Any society can be judged from its education system. Its education system embodies the approach of its government towards its citizens. Whether the government wants its citizens to be an active contributor or mere passive followers.

Education system of a developed country has an aim to produce an active contributor, thinking mind, and not accepting any thing for granted unless proved by reason. We inherited an education system which suited the palate of our colonial master that was to produce dump spectators and blind followers. It has been almost sixty years that we got independence but our education system is the same as before independence I.e., aimless, clueless, stagnant. Development in education sector has been taking place on theoretical front as well as on technological front .On the theoretical front all the stereotyped concept of teacher, student, school and classroom has been changed. Teacher is no more the source of all knowledge as his dominant role in the classroom has been relegated for the best of student and education. He is no more first among many, rather one among many. The flow of knowledge is not from one side rather from both sides. Students are not supposed to be passive recipient rather an active contributor.

Modern education system stresses upon creativity of students. Classroom environment should be such that it charms the student and he comes to class happily. Fear and threatening atmosphere should be done away with. It impairs the student's personality beyond repair. These are some of the theoretical suggestions which have revolutionized the education system. All this had been possible due to research in child psychology. On the technological front, use of computer, projector and T.V should be increased in the classroom. Students learn better through these contrivances than through traditional way. Something on computer TV absorbs their attention completely. Of course economic constrain comes in the way, but "where there is a will there is a way" should be the motto of a teacher. Question-and-answer method should be adopted by the teacher. It produces self confidence and creativity in students, teaching through group activity is far better than lecturer method.

In case of English language teaching, the usual practice is grammar translation method, where students are made to learn the rules including the rules for tenses, the rules for changing active voice to passive voice and from direct to indirect speech. The problem with this method is that students' whole time is taken in learning and memorizing these rules. It results in poor efficiency in speaking and comprehension. The modern approach is language acquisition. To use technical terminology, maximum exposure is to target language. When the students will be able to comprehend and speak in the second language, then they shall learn the rules by themselves. The aim in teaching language is to produce good speaker and listener and for that language acquisition approach is best. Conscious learning has extremely little role in language learning. The role of a teacher is very important. He is the agent of change. The need of the hour is to expose our teachers to the innovation in the field of teaching. This can be done by arranging seminars and training courses. Media has far greater role to play in this direction.
