For non-US TEDizens: Can you tell us about your country's education system?

This week's special on American TV, "TED Talks Education," focuses on problems in US schools.

So here's the place for non-Americans to share: What's an issue in your country's education system that you'd like to see a TED Talk about? Who would you ask to speak? Do you have any success stories to share?

    Our present education system is established by the British Rulers, we haven't changed it a bit. They might have changed it in Britain.
    You start in nursery, then Kinder garten, school for 12 years , graduation from a college...then seek employment.

    Ancient system was residential called Gurukul, where one mentor will teach his art to 4 or 5 five pupils. The pupil will do all the house hold work along side with learning the skills. But it was not available to all.
