Skilled people are prepared in modern educational institutions, whose scientific and technical knowledge leads to industrial development of the country. Other values like individualism and universalistic ethics etc. can also be inculcated through education. Thus education can be an important tool of modernization.
The importance of education can be realized from the fact that all modern societies emphasize on universalization of education and in ancient days, education was focused for a particular group. But with the modernization of education, now everyone has the facility to get education irrespective of their caste, religion, culture and economic background.
The effect of modernization can be seen in schools as well. Modern day schools are fully equipped with technically sound equipments which help the children to develop their expertise in a more articulate manner. Effective facilities provide barrier-free means for persons with disabilities, are free of health and environmental hazards, provide ample space for students and teachers, and are equipped with appropriate technology for classroom and instructional use.
The current teaching system requires more flexibility in classroom spaces than a classroom system. For example, students working together in small groups may use shared spaces between classes in some of the new elementary schools in the district.
