Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) increased the workload on students and teachers. Students have to spend many many hours at home to prepare projects. They have to widely refer internet and they often copy contents without knowing what it is. They make drawings for projects without even knowing what they are. The burden is transferred to parents who have to heavily help their children to get good marks. Students performance are reflection of parents education, time, and family help they receive. The text books of SSA are stupid without any contents. Under the premises of stimulating critical thinking they have simply filled the text books with insignificant rubbish and no real contents. For contents they have to refer the internet or go to tuitions or depend on parents. Those poor kids who cannot afford the internet are in pathetic frustrating situation. The bags of school children have become very very heavy.
The entire education system is screwed up and much worse that what it was 30-40 years back.. morons are at the helm of affairs
