The above is a real picture of the condition of school education in India. A front page report in the Delhi edition of The Hindu (13 Nov 2013) carries the photo from a teacher training institute in Dharwad. The institute (DIET) which trains primary school teachers has only one student, and 6 teachers. The previous batch had just two students.
The Times of India carries another report on the same day: 'Need Parenting Help? Call a Coach.' More and more parents are turning to experts for advice on how to deal with their children!
Why have children become such a problem that parents need expert advice
and teachers seem to be terrified of them - so terrified that teacher training institutes are running the danger of shutting down?
