viren patel Posted about 3 years ago Another Groundshifting Opportunity - Can we make Education free? Online mechanism will certainly help and it is working already. The learning can be fun and can be done for endless hours. But a part of it is already done (one way) by educational TV channels. Just the lack of interaction stops it from making online system. But that won't substitute schools. The drop out rates should not be a concern for now, as we are talking about online education it will not be rigid, no class, no roll calls. Same way, no fix count of students, no homework too ? Only then we are talking about free education. But with this, we won't get to know which student has learned how much. We need exams. There ! Oops, we again get stuck into the same cycle of teaching, examining, grading, passing. And we need the government to approve these exams and results. And we need to people to implement these systems again "remote teachers". So again the same cycle. The transformation is coming, but it will carve its own way out through millions of discussions like this one. For me, i am glad to be part of each one that concerns education.
