President calls for upgrading educational standards

President Pranab Mukherjee has expressed concern over the quality of education by saying that the \\\"demographic dividend\\\" would be an empty dream if the present educational standards are not upgraded.

President Pranab Mukherjee has expressed concern over the quality of education by saying that the "demographic dividend" would be an empty dream if the present educational standards are not upgraded.



"Our youth will end up contributing less to nation-building unless they are imparted quality education and requisite skills," he said while addressing a meeting of the Directors of Institute of Science and Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs) at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

 

"Pointing out that the number of central institutions nearly doubled from 55 to 106 during the Eleventh Plan period, the President expressed concern about the quality of education. He said the demographic dividend would be an empty dream if present educational standards are not upgraded. Our youth will end up contributing less to nation-building unless they are imparted quality education and requisite skills," he said.



The President called upon IISc and IISERs to promote a culture of excellence with zero tolerance for mediocrity, a statement from Rashtrapati Bhavan said.



The meeting was organised as a follow up to the Conference of Vice Chancellors of Central Universities held in February 2013 and 2014 as well as the Conference of Directors of NITs held in November 2013, it said.

 

Mukherjee said science, education, research and innovation are the four pillars on which the development as well as the work culture of a nation rests.
