President APJ Abdul Kalam: The computer education is very important field and I have seen wherever at the earlier phase of primary education, the introduction of the computers the drop out has reduced, the quality of education improved. There is a plan to introduce atleast 5th class onwards the computers from primary education and above. All efforts are progressing including the remote area. Tele-education is another possibility to reach out to remote areas.

Praveen Ravi (international school of paris, 17 yrs): dear mr president, as a student in an international school, ive tried to model the differences between the type of educations here and in India. I have realised that in India, most of our children are stuck with textbooks and the bare minimum required securing good or perhaps escellent marks on the exams. I personally find an elevation in my general knowledge after coming here. I believe that awareness of the world around us is one of the fundamental elements in shaping someone. I would like to know if general knowledge and current affairs can be more strictly imposed on the indian educations system.

President APJ Abdul Kalam: In our country, education has three layers primary, secondary and higher education. Regarding the last two categories, our syllabus and the method of teaching can be said to be normal and certain e-education has to be embedded. I feel the primary education for children below needs a change in the curriculum so that the creativity of the children can be brought out. Teachers have to be selected keeping this concept in mind.
