Thus, today's schools or other educational institutions have inculcated modern ways of teaching that is developing a child or student in a better way.
Back in our days, we used to use staircases to reach our classrooms, whereas today, there are elevators available in institutions. With enhanced technology, the need of advanced infrastructure has risen.

Since globalisation, methodology and syllabuses have changed. The infrastructure has revamped which is somewhere a need of the hour. In order to come at par with the global education system, it was imperative that Indian system was upgraded. This is exactly where our country is excelling and more private bodies are coming up with educational institutions.
