The Shackles of Traditional Education: A Call for Change

In a thought-provoking video by our founder, Dr. Aniruddha Malpani, the harsh reality of the education system is laid bare. From the moment we step into a classroom, we're bombarded with directives on how to behave, what to study, and how to conform. But amidst this seemingly structured environment lies a subtle imprisonment—one that stifles creativity, autonomy, and critical thinking.

In a thought-provoking video by our founder, Dr. Aniruddha Malpani, the harsh reality of the education system is laid bare. From the moment we step into a classroom, we’re bombarded with directives on how to behave, what to study, and how to conform. But amidst this seemingly structured environment lies a subtle imprisonment—one that stifles creativity, autonomy, and critical thinking.

Dr. Malpani points out the power relations in the classroom in a very clear way. Even though it sounds like students should speak up, that’s not what happens in real life. The teacher’s influence is strong, and any opinions that disagree are shut down. If you question or challenge the status quo, you will get in trouble or be kicked out of class. The system rewards people who follow the rules and punishes people who don’t. This is a long way from creating a lively learning space.

But who can we blame for this pervasive atmosphere? Is it solely the fault of teachers? Dr. Malpani suggests otherwise. Many educators genuinely aspire to make a positive impact, yet they find themselves ensnared in administrative tasks and exam-driven curriculums. The emphasis on rote learning and regurgitation of facts undermines the very essence of education—to cultivate curiosity, critical thinking, and a thirst for knowledge.

So, where do we go from here? The first step is acknowledging the flaws within the system. Blind adherence to tradition only perpetuates the cycle of mediocrity. It’s time to reimagine education—to shift from a model focused on conformity to one that celebrates diversity of thought and individual expression.
