Abstract :

The present system of education is centralized towards andhelpsan individual to get a job and make a living. An activity that promotes lateral thinking or help in holistic development of child is not considered academic and necessary. The present education systems areobsessed with production of individuals who gets a quick job. Independent, abstract and absolute thinking is not promoted;hence it is time to think out of the box. According to Sir Kenneth Robison, a typical educational institution (school) has in it, all the qualities of a factory, that is there are separate subjects, separate facilities; children are educated by batches and by groups1. The modern Education system is targeted on mass production and ‘learners’ are a product of amechanical system. We have made them literate but not educated.Education is one that ings a desired change2 and withoutit, it is onlymerely increasing the literacy rate.To a large extent centers of education do have an economical interest and hence there is increase in quantity of students pass out. There is a gap between a complete and mature individual with life skills   that should have come out our system and the present graduate walking out. Life skills are deemednecessary to assess a situation, Come out with a unique asolution, ability to communicate electively, haveeffective interpersonal skills and have capacity for convergent and divergent thinking. We try to findthe etiology of this and suggest probable solution, where educationsystem must play a role in developing life skills by Life Skills Education (LSE).
