It is rather unbelievable that in this age of information explosion, we have not been able to understand and appreciate that for a successful education and career, we need to be adequately aware of the various education and career resources.
Education Resources start right at the tender age of 2 to 3 years when play schools and anganwadis come into play. Come to think of it, one of the richest segments in the education sector in India are the play schools catering to the most demanding customers the toddlers!! Then on to the early Kindergarten and Nurseries.
This is where the Government and privately run Anganwadis play a big role in bringing the toddlers out of their fairy tale land and into a little more real world of mickey mouses and tom and jerry, i.,e.the KGs, and Nurseries.
In India, starting with Play school right up to the colleges of regular graduation to the institutions of higher learning where quality education on professional areas such as medical, engineering, law, fashion, civil services, foreign services, forest services, defence, etc are imparted, we have enough schools, colleges, etc to take care of the millions waiting to be educated..Thus, there is absolutely no dearth of Education Resources.
