i have to identify problems associated in india with education. what the problems are and success it have. i actually not been to india only pakistan.
i think problem be that large population, large birth rates, fertility rate is large. literacy rate is low, delays in marriages, and that have childrens late. no medications. sons wanted over girls for work issues. and dowries. i not know any for success and is this all problems? i guessing that success be maybe large agriculture productions
As this article points out, poverty, lack of higher education, and lack of teachers also are problems for India's education.
thanks so much ms. sue but what be some successes? cause i not find any
One of the successes is that American companies (and probably also Canadian companies) have hired many Indians for information technology work. Many Indians also are employed by English speaking call centers. They help people in Canada and the U.S. solve their computer problems.
oh thank you ms. sue :) is debt also problem in india?
ms. sue can i ask for your opinion? u think it fair about the dowries? i think that very rude and i not get why people still do that. i not even get what a dowry is only thing i understand is that it be form of money, land, that be given to girls in laws, but i not know why. do they think girls are burden that's why?
I don't approve of dowries either. Here's an explanation of dowries in India.
"Hindus Honor Their Ancestors
"According to Hindu tradition, a young man repaid his debt to his ancestors by marrying. Therefore, everything surrounding a wedding, including the dowry, was imbued with ritual meaning.
"Brides lived with their husband's family and poor families often saw the bride as another pair of hands. Therefore, the groom's family compensated the bride's family for their economic loss. On the other hand, in Brahman, or upper caste, households, the bride was seen as a burden, requiring the support of her husband's family. The bride's family had to pay the groom's family with a dowry for taking her off their hands. Traditional wedding rituals are often followed today in India, especially in rural areas."
gosh that is real bad so it happen mostly in poorer countries.
