As per 2010-11 report total number of teachers: 6554246

India Total population: 1,340,708,984

% of teachers of total population: 0.49%

41% of the population are below 20 years: 549690683

If required teachers or trainer to student ratio is 1/50 = 0.02
present teachers to student ratio is 6554246/549690683 = 0.011

In countries like USA, 2% of total population are teachers.

Whats need to be done?

  • Funding children instead of schools. (How policy should be so that it improves teachers, student ratio needs to be thought of?)
  • Reward real world problem solving through projects instead of marks and clearing the entrances, the mindset of just marks should be completely removed.
  • Weed out takers and create a culture of producing more givers
