WHy Education?

The Education is the most important factor for human sake.Because of education the human is on top in all.For our better growth for our country growth we need educated and managed people.
National strategies for addressing climate change can only succeed with the full engagement of the general public and important interest groups, or stakeholders such as businesses and local policymakers. Since governments are directly responsible for only a small proportion of greenhouse gas emissions,they must persuade businesses, communities and individuals to adjust their activities in a way that reduces their direct emissions. Otherwise, it will not be possible to realize the Convention’s objective and the Protocol’s targets.
Governments have several tools at their disposal for gaining public support. Policies can be used to raise the cost of activities that emit GHGs and reduce the costs of similar activities that do not. Regulations and standards can mandate changes in products and practices.Taxes and subsidies can be adjusted to influence behaviour. Such policies and measures, however, can engender opposition, particularly from those concerned about the imposition of a new cost. Public information and education is therefore vital for generating public support for such policies. It can also encourage voluntary changes in habits that will lead to lower emissions.
Despite high marks that India gets in the world media for an educated labor force, its sclerotic institutions of higher education are facing many challenges from globalization. While many extraordinarily successful doctors, businesspeople and scientists are from India, only three Indian institutions rank among the world’s top 500 universities. Since the market for talent has gone global, many of India’s premier institutions fail to attract bright students within their own borders who usually make their way to universities in the US, China and Europe. As a result, policy analyst Pratap Bhanu Mehta points out that India misses out on opportunities as Indians abroad file for patents and create businesses. One reason is the government’s rigid control over educational policy. To meet the demands of globalisation, the government must spend more on education, increase student access, yet also extend greater autonomy to its universities. More funding combined with greater flexibility will strengthen research capability and secure talent within the country’s borders. India’s rigid regulation of education retards the intellectual growth of its institutions, diminishing their ability to compete for global talent.
As students return to school, some will face writing about "What I did last summer." While such an assignment draws on the writer's personal experience, which is good, what will students learn from doing this assignment? As the curriculum gets increasingly crowded with things to teach, teachers can't afford to have assignments that don't have educational goals.
