Digital Desk, New Delhi. Many new age schools in the National Capital Region (NCR) have incorporated a transformational education system, which is probably the reason for the recent increase in the number of admissions in these schools as compared to the schools located in Delhi. Parents, teachers and industry experts are witnessing the recent shift of children from Delhi schools to NCR schools.
That is, many such cases have been seen, when parents are taking their children out of Delhi schools and getting them admitted in NCR schools. There are many reasons which are causing this change and these seem to be the major reasons like advanced curriculum, child friendly learning environment, student-teacher ratio, state-of-the-art infrastructure.
Along with this, the main reasons also include focus on holistic development and various co-curricular activities etc. The need of the hour is that the present educational institutions offer a flexible and advanced curriculum with progressive pedagogical practices in line with the skill requirements of the 21st century. Follow.
Echoing a similar view, Vishnu Karthik, Director, The Heritage Group of Schools and CEO of Experiential Learning Systems, said, “Progressive schools in Gurugram, which started their journey just 15-16 years ago, have transformed the workplace of the 21st century. Evaluated the practices and pedagogy followed by traditional schools for their alignment with the expectations.
On the other hand, traditional schools have been slow to adapt to the change. In addition, concerns about student-teacher ratios dominate the parent’s school selection criteria to a large extent, as better student-teacher ratios enable individualized attention and individualized learning. It also provides a conducive learning environment, because if there will be teachers in the right proportion of students, a teacher can pay special attention to all the children and is highly likely to learn about the strengths and weaknesses of each child.
If there are only 16 to 20 students in the class, the chances of this obviously increase significantly. A parent whose child studies in Grade 3 at Pathway World School, Aravalli said, “A classroom with 30-40 kids is a situation no parent would want. With classes going online due to COVID, the management of a class with 16 children is much better than a class with 30-40 children.
Manju Rana, Director, Schools, Seth Anandram Jaipuria Group of Educational Institutions, spoke about some of the factors that contributed to the growing popularity of schools in NCR, including the deteriorating financial condition of Delhi schools and the quality of education they offer. He highlighted that most of the schools in Delhi are suffocating. Moreover, their education lacks the necessary innovative measures to implement the new age methodology.
