Why Science Stream After 10th: A Complete Guide for Students

Education cannot be calculated in terms of number, size or shape. It is something which cannot be degraded or be shortening; it can only be increased by spreading knowledge. But now a day’s education industry has become commercialized.

Education depends upon your interest and skills; it tries to shape your future.

Comparing to other countries, India’s illiteracy rate is higher because there are several factor hindering the children from taking professional education like:

  • Parents with little or less education- This case is certainly a barrier.
  • No interest in reading – The child doesn’t show interest and tell lies to parents and the parents didn’t even bother.
  • Drop outs—many have not completed high school; they discontinue
  • Poor Standard of Living – The commercialization of education industry, don’t let the child enter into the school or classroom.
  • Disabilities, such as dyslexia- This is a very rare case.
