Outdated system

Sir: Our education system is in tatters and desperately needs an overhaul. Everything – from teaching methodology to examinations – is outdated. We are following the system that was given to us by the British and, it seems that we want to continue doing that without trying to upgrade any-thing.
Teachers also seem uninterested in innovating their teaching style and methodology. They teach the same thing, over and over again, to every class every year. Experimenting and learning through trying various methods is unheard of in our country. Some teachers maintain notes which they read from to each and every class they teach and don’t allow their students to explore the subject.
Because of this, students also use rot learning to pass their exams. Such practices have made education in the country meaningless and useless. If we want to progress we need to upgrade and overhaul the entire education system from the ground up. The government should not be the only one to do this, every section of the society – especially those who are education abroad – should contribute and devise a new system for our future generations.
Umar Ashraf, Faisalabad.
