Skill gap between Industry and education System
One such big issue is the gap between Industry and education system. Initially I was shocked to see that nothing much has changed in our education system in a decade. We have not learned from our mistakes. Our students are still not ready for the industry. Our academics and institutions are not ready to keep up the pace with world.
- Our education system relies so much on theoritical knowledge that many surveys actually suggest that half of all graduates are not employable in any sector based on industry standards.
- Situation is worst in IT sector, where many studies has shown that around 75% of IT graduates are deemed as 'unemployable'.
I personally feel bad, reading such reports and outcomes. Though their are some institutions which are looking into this direction but desperate time asks for desperate measures. Would like to mention some ways to improve, but that later on.
