Indian high-school education: Is it too ambition-oriented?
With the rise in craze for admissions in IITs and NITs in India since the last decade, are the Indian high-schools becoming too ambition-oriented? We see coaching centres, "IIT-JEE target programmes" "IIT-coaching for class 8"...... No doubt this is killing the life of students, but is this really required? How much do these institutes help? Are they making us too theoretical-learners rather than learners with scientific temper and spirit of inquiry? What do you say?
