Mumbai: On 3rd March 2018, Er. Izhar Khan is awarded with Educationist of the year Award from Al Falah foundation for his Educational services towards the Community.
Er. Izhar Khan is an Engineering Graduate from University of Mumbai, India and Postgraduate from world renowned Institution University of Glasgow, UK. He is Chairman of NTI Academy and he believes that education is the best way to help and empower people.
During the program Khan said, India is hub to one of the highest youngest population in the world where more than 60% of the population is below age of 35 years. Each year over 60 million plus students graduate and more than 70 percent of them are left unemployed because of lack of requisite skills. This problem can be solved with skill based education where students when they graduate carry at least one skill to make their livelihood.
Especially if we look at school education currently, there are over 1.3 million schools operating in India where over 228 million students are enrolled for traditional education. If one could notice, there are huge dropout rates in high school, with as much as 56.8 per cent of the students discontinuing from regular schools before even reaching Class 10 exam. India needs to seriously think about this problem and find solution for the same.
