Intellectual Meet in Bangalore
“Schooling system makes kids literate but not really educated. Today, we get literate people but not educated people. Even legislations like RTI have been designed without much thought or impact. Unless we make people understand issues and go into depth of issues, education is useless. The information flow requires further tuning to make people wise. If we want the nation to come up, we need reforms in the education system,” said Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parikkar, while expressing his concern on reforms needed in education system across India. He was addressing a select audience at Intellectual Meet for Vision and Thought Leaders at CMR Institute of Technology, Bangalore on August 25.
The Intellectual meet was organised by Swami Vivekananda 150 Birth Anniversary Celebration Committee, Karnataka. Noted writer Madhu Kishwar and social activist Dr Balasubramaniam also spoke on the occasion.
