"50% Kids Lack Skills For Grade They"Re In"

News Information

About half of all Indian students were perceived by teachers as lacking the skills required for the class or grade they wereentering, despite the same teachers also believing that the learning environment had improved over the last decade. This was revealed in a survey of over 5,000 teachers from schools and institutions of higher education from over 200 cities across the country.The teachers identified inadequate support received from parents and policy makers as the main inhibitors in achieving outcomes. The survey, however, did not have any questions on teacher-related problems within the education system such as lack of qualifications, absenteeism or quality of teaching.Released days before the occasion of Teachers' Day, the Voice of Teacher Survey, an annual initiative of Pearson, which described itself as an education company, focused on topical issues facing the Indian education sector and shared teachers' perspectives on the changing dynamics of the ecosystem. The current survey focused on the education system's ability to drive learner outcomes and the challenges faced in achieving the same.Almost 80% of the surveyed 5,145 teachers from schools and higher education institutes across 247 cities and towns in India believed that the learning environment had improved in the past decade. School teachers viewed the changes more favourably (91%) compared to their counterparts in higher education (71%). Among school teachers, primary teachers perceived the most improvement (95%).Among states, teachers in the southern states perceived the most improvement (83%) while those from the north (74%) least shared this view. Nearly one-third of teachers in Telangana, UP and Rajasthan believed that the environment had deteriorated.According to the survey, nearly all the teachers (92%) believed that India's assessment system primarily focused on exam results. The teachers themselves considered skill and personality development (94%) as the most important benchmark for measuring learner success, followed by preparedness for higher education and jobs (83%) and lastly the test and exam results (57%).They felt that the factors that inhibited learning outcomes were declining student motivation and interest (76%), mismatch between syllabus and learning needs (65%) and focus of students and parents on exam results (65%).The survey also revealed that the teachers considered real-life and practical exposure (63%) as the key factor in driving learning outcomes, followed by technology integration into teaching (51%), training on new methodologies (49%) and improved curriculum and assessment framework (44%).
