INDIA- flawed education system

of teachers day...........


Is education system helpful to these kids who learn ABC without an understanding of what it is? .... these migrant workers mostly from impoverished parts of north India find a decent livelihood in the jhuggies of Kukkatpalli with each and everyone making Ganapatis for the festival and then Diyas for Diwali and some pop statues during other time. Education does not touch the door of these places probably the family does not see value add to it.


We can say that this child needs to be in school... I agree but also wonder is our education system in its present shape an use for people of this strata or a more productive kind of one which is useful for them.


This child ironically is named Bharat , who is street smart has probably learned more being on the street than in school........


By the way this boy is not employed as child labour but helps his family eek out a living in his family business of making ganapatis


Whats your take folks?
