There were many myths and misconceived notions about online education until recent past. Some people believed that online learning is a good option only for students who have a good track record. It was also believed that only those students having access to computers and modern means of communication would benefit from online education. However, with time such notions are giving way to an open acceptance where people have started accepting online education as a viable alterative for conventional education.
Not all online education options have a similar methodology and approach. There are various modes of online education available and it would be better if you have an understanding of different methodologies in use by online education providers so that you can select the course with the methodology that suits you the best. Here we are discussing the learning methodologies for online education:

To a huge side of the population, education may mean “nothing at all”, but to a petty portion of people, education may mean “everything.” Referring back to its founding father, the two goals of education are: The good for the entire society and the world, and secondly the former good must be the sources of other good. Because of these two goals of education, we have reached the terms: human evolution, sustainable development, development for all, equality in all conditions, etc; these consolations, are indeed, destined to fetch in good for one society, and increasingly the whole world.
However, I have seen that education has been negatively converted into an artificial key for self-benefit; this is far away from the principal and mindset of its founding father. Law and political science are two of the fields that have been negatively derailed from their founding fathers.
“The good for the mass” is the goal of political science and law, and this goal is ubiquitously informed to all students of political science and law. However, their education gained while they were in school was made imperfect, as soon as they become the enforcers of this educational goal in the society. So what are the reasons behind this evil?

Institutions of education, and the system of which they are a part, face a host of unprecedented challenges from forces in society that affect and are influenced by these very institutions and their communities of learners and educators. Among these forces are sweeping demographic changes, shrinking provincial budgets, revolutionary advances in information and telecommunication technologies, globalization, competition from new educational providers, market pressures to shape educational and scholarly practices toward profit-driven ends, and increasing demands and pressures for fundamental changes in public policy and public accountability relative to the role of higher education in addressing pressing issues of communities and the society at large. Anyone of these challenges would be significant on their own, but collectively they increase the complexity and difficulty for education to sustain or advance the fundamental work of serving the public good.
Through a forum on education, we can agree to: Strengthening the relationship between higher education and society will require a broad-based effort that encompasses all of education, not just individual institutions, departments and associations.
Piecemeal solutions can only go so far; strategies for change must be informed by a shared vision and a set of common objectives. A “movement” approach for change holds greater promise for transforming academic culture than the prevailing “organizational” approach.

After independence, education became the responsibility of the states. The Indian education system is generally based on marks. There are broadly four stages of school education in India, namely primary, upper primary, secondary and higher secondary (or high schools). The primary or the elementary education is the foundation of the education system in India, as the children are given eight years of schooling during this period. After completing the elementary education, the students get into the secondary level.
The government has taken up the responsibility for ensuring universal elementary education (primary and upper primary) for all children between the age group of six to fourteen. From class one to five is the primary school from the age group of six to eleven. Upper Primary and Secondary school pupils are aged between eleven to fifteen years organized into class”s six to ten. The higher secondary school student ages sixteen to seventeen enrolled in classes eleven and twelve.
The state government provides many opportunities to improve education in India. In the world level, India literacy rate in the Year 2001 census was 64.83, which improved to 74.04 in 2011. The Tamil Nadu is the one of the most literate states in India. Tamil Nadu has performed reasonably well in terms of literacy growth during the decade 2001 to 2011. The state’s literacy rate increased from 73.47% in 2001 to 80.3% in 2011 which is above the national average. This is good improvement in literacy rate.

The state Government has been implemented the Common School System is called “Samacheer Kalvi” or Tamil Nadu Uniform System of School Education or Equitable education system.
Advantage of Samacheer Kalvi:

“If we will have uniform education system in the state poor children can get better education along with the other states and can learn better things.
Samacheer Kalvi is one of the best in Indian education. “Education is not something which the teacher does … it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being”
Why Parents Choice of Private Schools Has Changed Lives.
The education and preparation provided by private schools are unparalleled. Statistics show that pupils who attend private schools are four times more likely to achieve high honors when they enroll into high school than their public school counterparts. Students graduating from private schools have demonstrated an ability to not only excel in high school, but in college as well.
Further statistics show that students at fee-paying schools made up 43.9 percent of those given places at Oxford University and 41 percent of those at Cambridge. Also, 92.9 percent of pupils leaving independent schools went on to higher education in 2008. This highlights an alarming inadequacy in public education. There must be a proportionate amount of equally bright children at state schools, but they are missing out on the top grades due to an inadequate educational environment.
One private school graduate from Carden Academy explained Carden Academy gave me the ability to balance all of the activities in which I was involved in while maintaining a high GPA (3.7). My deep knowledge of and comfort with the fundamentals of sentence composition and parts of speech served as an indispensable skill while in high school honors and Advanced Placement courses, and in college, writing my larger papers were a breeze.
