Education World, in partnership with Ernst and Young, have selected four schools in India as Schools of National Excellence, schools that role-model what education in the 21st century should be. The selection was conducted by a national jury based on Big Data. Indus Bangalore is one of them with a rating of A ++. Indus Pune and Indus Hyderabad also received recognition with a grading of A +
This award reinforces the increasing belief amongst stakeholders that rote-memorisation, scoring high marks in examination for college placement, puts children to grave risk in later life. With jobs, technology and knowledge getting outdated at a rapid pace, they will be unable to re-skill, and re-discover their potential. The outdated model of Industrial Age schooling still being followed in most schools in India, were summed up by Henry Ford in his famous quote, “A man’s real education begins after he has left school.” Real-education now must happen while in school!
