ABSTRACT

The current research seeks to define ‘quality of education’ and understand the present standard of the Indian education system. It views lateral thinking as a possible alternative towards achieving an improved functioning of the education system. Participants were chosen for their work in close association with the education system – having experienced its functioning; they are likely to understand the impact of the current form of education on the students. Findings indicate that several drawbacks exist in the education system and possible solutions for the same have been derived from the interviews. However, a restricted exploration of possible solutions to educational issues was displayed by the participants. At the same time, the participants exhibited a simplistic understanding of the concept of lateral thinking. Implications of the findings, limitations of the current study and recommendations for future research are included.
