S.D.M. Siddhartha Mahila Kalasala:The objective of education has taken a different direction these days with students and their parents solely concentrating on future opportunities and chances that may come from a particular course.

This has greatly changed the preferences of students and has left a deep impact on the thinking of the educational institutions.

For instance, parents are too eager to get their children admitted into schools which say a lot about foundation courses for entrance examinations like the EAMCET.

Thought they charge high fee, the parents do not bother to go ahead with admissions. In reality, they do not have a full understanding of whether the courses are worth taking. Moreover, this is like imposing additional burden on the students.

The educational system has to be standardised in the context of new trends creeping in at the cost of holistic education. The policymakers are not having any say in this. It seems like there is no alternative to new concepts, as they promise bright future and ensure this by any means.

The shift in the objective of education system seems to do a world of good for students while, at the same time, it deprives them of acquiring knowledge in traditional subjects. But everybody is banking on the benefits that come from modern courses.
