EDUCATION SYSTEM: In ancient times, India had the Gurukula education system in which anyone who wanted to study went to a teacher's house (Guru) and asked to be taught. If he was accepted as a student by the guru, he would then remain in the guru's place and assist in all activities in the country. This type of things not only create a strong bond between the teacher and student, but also taught the student everything about running a house and how to deal with things.
The guru taught everything the child wanted to learn, from Sanskrit to Holy Scripture and from Mathematics to Metaphysics. The student remained as long as she wanted or until the guru felt she had taught everything she could teach. All learning was closely linked to nature and life, and was not limited to memorizing some information.The modern school system was brought to India, including English, originally by Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay in the 1830s. The curriculum was limited to "modern" subjects such as science and mathematics,and subjects such as metaphysics and philosophy were considered unnecessary. Teaching was confined to classrooms and the bond with nature was broken, as was the close relationship between teacher and student.
There are mainly three methods in school education in India. Two of them are coordinated at the national level, one of which is under the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and was originally intended for children of central government employees who are transferred periodically and may have to move anywhere in the country. Several central schools called as Kendriya Vidyalayas have been established for this purpose in all major urban areas of the country, and follow a common schedule so that a student who goes from one school to another on a given day hardly sees any difference in what Is being taught. A subject (Social Studies, consisting of History, Geography and Civics) is always taught in Hindi, and other subjects in English, in these schools. Kendriya Vidyalayas admit other children also if the seats are available. All of them follow the textbooks written and published by NCERT. In addition to these government-run schools, several private schools in the country follow the CBSE program, although they may use different textbooks and follow different teaching schedules. They have some freedom in what they teach in the lower classes. The CBSE also has 141 affiliated schools in 21 other countries, mainly to the needs of the indian population.
