Why Indian education sucks (from 2012) #RTE #education #innovation #patents

June 10, 2017

this was written for rediff in 2012. i’m not at all sure things have improved at all in the last 5 years. RTE has become an increasing nightmare, and unfortunately, the MOOC revolution turned out to be rather less impressive than i thought at the time, although i still think on-line self-paced education is a great way forward for india.

and here’s the result: not one (but several chinese) universities in the list of those creating US patents. (a pretty good proxy for R&D, although not necessarily for innovation). http://www.academyofinventors.com/pdf/top-100-universities-2016.pdf
