very student decides his career post completing his 10th standard. The step which he take after 10th will decide his future. Career choice after 10th is not just an easy task to decide upon. One needs to understand his strength, area of interest and then decide which stream to take to have a fruitful career. A majority of the students are confused when it comes to choosing streams. In the absence of proper guidance, they get troubled in the later stages.
Right now, the admission process is yet to gain momentum but the students are coming to the school to get information about the formalities for securing admission in Class XI.
The board of school education will declare the results for class 10th in coming days. We wish luck to the ones who appeared in exams.
However, the ones who will pass the exams have no one to ask counseling questions to. A majority does not have any concrete idea what they have to do in future-everyone is being kept under the broad brushes of Science, Commerce, humanities and arts. While the world is shifting to 6G mode of communication our academic system has not gone under much change. The same courses, same subjects, same teachers, the same way of teaching, the same empty benches, the same high percentage of high scoring students and equally lesser number of employable youth.
At a time when newer courses like digital marketing, big data, Artificial Intelligence and software development are becoming increasingly popular we are teaching our youth what Socrates and Aristotle felt about the universe.
The need of the hour is to counsel the students about these employable courses so that upon completion of the course they can fetch a job for themselves. In a place like Kashmir proper counseling will give us young and energetic workforce ready to change the GDP and other parameters on which development is measured.
We hope the things change. The sooner they change the better.
