As a rich human resources nation, India is harnessing the rising number of Edupreneurs to achieve economical as well as social goals at a faster pace.
The Indian education industry has always been a significant contributor towards the economy and is well poised for continuous growth. Today, with the inclusion of more private players marking the scenario, education is witnessing a significant yet progressive change. Therefore, industry is set to achieve its peak as the idea of business via education catches up, with edupreneurs on an all time high.
Currently, more and more entrepreneurs are stepping into the education market with an idea that leveraging pedagogical expertise with advancements while providing a fresh approach is how education should be moulded. Students are becoming world-wise at an increasingly earlier age and hence, are acclimatising with global education on a steady basis.
As a rich human resources nation, India is harnessing the rising number of edupreneurs to achieve economical as well as social goals at a faster pace. Their rise is compared to that of software engineers and BPO operators, who had singlehandedly, accelerated the pace of India’s economic progress in an unbelievably short period of time. By encouraging edupreneurs to take off, the government is tackling unemployment and illiteracy headfirst, with positive results. Frustrated by the abysmal situation of earlier education, these entrepreneurs have taken it to task in changing the fabric of a system that was based purely on rote learning.
In past, the state of both government and private institutions was deplorable, as education was solely focused on a mark-based achievement. The private schools propagated a brand of education that was outdated and restricted to the bourgeoisie of Indian strata, restricting quality education from the majority of population. The government factions were no better, with lack of resources, support or quality in education imparted to deserving individuals restricted by monetary capacity. A chasm was created, which Edupreneurs have attempted to fill, through quality education at a nominal package. They have successfully changed the perspective of education from being bookish to supplementing a holistic growth. They have also instilled confidence amongst parents that, their children will receive personalized attention and a competitive education. The edupreneurs have kept their promises towards optimal education by attracting talented teachers, implementing effective teaching methodologies, and inculcating learning activities to ensure that children are able to unearth their limitless potentiality and channelize it for the nation’s growth and development. The act of offering scholarships to deserving students have been instilled into the halls of education by these edupreneurs, who believe that diamonds can also be found and honed in the rough.
A rapidly growing economy like that of India requires an adequate supply of accountable and quality education. The past trend amongst independent school leaders exhibits the need for a consolidated network of schools that deliver a high standard of education under a unified framework. Branded networks of schools promoted by these entrepreneurs offer children a standardized curriculum at an affordable cost. This significantly bolsters the efforts of edupreneurs through the faith of public authorities and government bodies. Consequently, all these positive factors are spurring the growth and making space for a revolutionary brand of education in India.
Hence, for these entrepreneurs, education is the way to go as India gears itself for another batch of successful innovations to shape and cement the entire landscape.
