Phonics for India!

India ranks first in countries which have the highest youth population which is about 356 million amongst which 31 million are unemployed and currently seeking jobs. The number of unemployed Indians is steadily increasing each year.

Even with the highest youth population, India is still a developing country and not a developed country. Reports say that 53% of college graduates are not equipped with skills needed for employment. Another report says that 80% of Indian school students from age 5-15 can’t read and write properly.

Yet another report says that 3 million jobs were created in India in the first six months of 2018. There is an increase in unemployed youth even though many jobs are being created.

Why is this so? Why are the youth of India remaining unemployed even with abundance of jobs being created?

The reason is that the employability skills are being reduced year by year. The graduates passing out each year neither possess the skill-set required by the organizations in which they are seeking employment nor the lingual ability to converse with others in English.

Education is the most important foundation for any country to grow and develop. There are many solutions for the increase in employability and skills of an individual which ultimately plays a major role in the growth of our country. One of the solutions is phonics.

Phonics is a branch of linguistics which studies the sound-spelling relationship. All across the world, most schools are integrating phonics as a part of curriculum in the early years of education. This results in children being able to comprehend the sounds made by the letters and read words. This further impacts the child’s ability to spell words.

It is proven that children who have studied phonics as a part of their curriculum have shown better comprehension and understanding. It develops the efficiency and reading skills too!

With globalization occurring at a rapid pace and English being the lingua-franca of the world, Indian schools must not only assimilate but also prioritize phonics as an important part of their curriculum to ensure that our students also have more opportunities and more growth. Inclusion of phonics in the curriculum paves way to children having a more extensive vocabulary, having more confidence and being more vocal too!

Phonics: A Must-have for Schools in India

All across the world, the education system is changing rapidly. In India, however, the situation is different. The education system of India is lagging behind. Reports show that 80% of Indian school students from age 5-15 can’t read and write properly.

To gain understanding of any information, a person has to be able to read. Difficulty with reading results in a difficulty in comprehending and understanding. This again is a path to the masses of India not having sufficient knowledge and the whole country lagging behind. This has to be changed for the development of our country. An effective solution has to be found to keep India on par with the other developed countries.

One solution we can come up with is teaching phonics in the schools of India.

So, what is Phonics?

Phonics is a branch of linguistics which studies the relationship between sounds and spellings corresponding to those sounds. It helps children to read and write. As more and more students fail to read and write properly, phonics has become an integral part in the education system in most schools all across the world. Phonics teaches children sound-spelling relationships so that they decode or understand words better. Comparing the written language to code, the knowledge of phonics helps students comprehend words better.

All words are comprised of small units of sound which are called as phonemes. Phonics helps children in listening to these sounds and identifying them. It also helps children know which alphabets to use while writing.

Why is it important to teach phonics?

As language learning ability and the various sounds of human speech as naturally mastered by every individual, there is a question often asked by parents and educational institutions on whether phonics learning is important for children. The answer, however, has always remained the same. YES, it is indeed very important for children to be taught phonics as a part of their curriculum as it helps them in ways more than just being able to identify sounds and write spellings correctly.

Children who are taught phonics in schools have better reading skills, fluency, efficiency, accuracy and comprehension. They will also be able to pronounce words correctly and have an extensive vocabulary. Teaching phonics to children helps them in developing confidence too!
