Let me talk about education in India with which I am familiar. This business of equipping the young students with the skills required for earning their livelihood is what engages the minds of most of the parents.The result is that we have produced hordes of computer engineers who do other countries' software ,perhaps causing resentment among the swelling ranks of the unemployed in those countries. I really do not think we are able to produce enough people for the manufacturing sector. There is a certain wonkinessin the whole system ,a structural imbalance which needs to be addressed at the earliest. in order to improve the quality of education it is essential to adopt a balanced composition of the educational system with a planned growth relative to the anticipated needs of the economy .The governemt has so far failed to address the question of such a planned effort to give a direction for future growth of the educational institutions.
