The process of education for any child begins with the first baby steps. He or she starts his or her primary education at a tender age of 3 or 4 years and thus begins the journey of the child. Whether the child gets transformed into a complete human being or otherwise would depend on the quality of education.
While primary education is very important in terms of setting the basics right, secondary education is also very vital as it is the launching pad for the teenage student to launch himself to a higher level of specialized education. Hence a good secondary education where learning the basics of specialization is made interesting and participative, the student is bound to gather knowledge and internalize his special subjects rather than memorize them. Memorizing and vomiting is temporary and should be avoided at all costs.
Online education is fast catching up and it helps not only in primary education but is also equally helpful in secondary education and also in technical education. Sitting in the comfort of the house the student gets an opportunity to be exposed to the best in teaching with tools and aides which are state-of-the art. Here too the process of learning will succeed better if it is made fun and made interactive. The student should be the focus of attention and not the teacher.
Continuing education beyond the secondary stage is very important. A mere graduation is not enough these days and specialization in a particular field is name of the game. Here technical education plays a big role. A student understands a topic better if it is taught with some live examples rather than monotonous class room lectures. In fine, education is all about making it interesting, affordable and encompassing the not so rich students and children in this field.
