Education should make students think in an innovative way: Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu
Addressing the students of Dr D Rama Naidu Vignana Institute of Rural Development and members of the Vignana Jyothi Society, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said education must lay the foundation for developing a society that is strongly grounded in morals, ethics and value systems.
During his visit, M Venkaiah Naidu also said education should make students think in an innovative way and they should come out with bright solutions to overcome challenges.
"Our education system should focus on our traditional crafts, arts and the way we preserve and protect local varieties of seeds. We can transform our students from being job seekers to job creators by building the proper ecosystem for imparting skill-based training in every higher educational institution," Vice President said.
While speaking on imprinting the education standards, M Venkaiah Naidu said an ideal educational institution must focus on making a student into a holistic individual by equipping them to face the challenges of life with equanimity and stability.
Also, Naidu said educational institutions need to employ counsellors to provide support and guidance to students during challenging times.
Moreover, the Vice President lamented that none of the Indian universities figured in the top ranking global institutions. "There is a need to revamp our education system to improve standards and impart world-class learning," he added.
Highlighting the urgent need to bridge the urban rural divide in terms of education, Naidu rued rural youth had limited access to quality educational programmes. "Access to education to all levels is essential for inclusive growth," he observed.
Commenting on creating more avenues for skilled jobs in villages, Naidu called for greater synergy between the private, public and co-operative sectors stating it would strengthen food security and improve the living conditions of rural people.
