    Today’s fashion is not only bounded with women’s fashion and trendy clothes but also men’s fashion is increasing day by day and as well as competition in the world.

    Interesting, Sonali Kolhatkar just talked about how students are being overtested.

    Although I’d like to mention that another thing to talk about is different ways for students to be taught such as the paideia or Montessori type learning styles.

    As it stands, with the current system not working, why not try something radically different by having parents be the teachers and volunteers at the school, paid to bring their knowledge and skills to the classroom and promote better learning and understanding of the issues of school than the current system that outsources everything including its problems.

    Here in Australia we face the same problem and we are trying to address these problems by starting at the community level. Communities can change societies.

    Economic development can only be possible with the help of quality education and meaningful democracy. The government needs to tackle down the situation before it goes out of their hands.
