An education revolution is beginning in rural India

Teachers are becoming bloggers and engaging their students in learning.

In rural India, the gap between educational aspirations and real achievements has not changed much over the years. However, the arrival of "big education" no longer has to be anticipated. Indians in rural areas, who often had to learn from a single YouTube video shared with almost the entire village, can expect change soon. This is because conceptual and nationwide education has become a top priority for the national education policy and is currently available to new students. We are talking about spreading knowledge through channels familiar to many (including YouTube), not through the help of bloggers who might have gaps in their knowledge but by the teachers themselves. Schools are starting vlogs starring teachers, and teachers have been sharing with their local newspapers that YouTube payouts encourage them to make more videos. Considering how many Indians are well-known worldwide for illustrating even the most complex concepts in no time, we can be incredibly optimistic about the future of learning in India! Hundreds and thousands of videos have already been created by teachers, which has now become a whole educational system concerning any subject and year of schooling.

The county's education department notes that this is only for the benefit of students. In reality, studying in a private school, where a child can sit at desks and not on the ground, costs up to 10,000 rupees monthly. In comparison, civil servants' salaries in the country are 12-15 thousand rupees over the same period. Businesspeople earning about 30,000 rupees are in the minority in India. Therefore, local children and teenagers with English language skills are being saved by YouTube, which opens the door to an entire world of educational content.
