Mindless parroting — will it educate?

Watch this video. This performance was by 2 students of a Government school in the state of Rajasthan, India on the occasion of the Independence Day celebrations.

With mindless parroting as you see in the video, do you think that these kids will ever learn the English language? Is this the way to get kids excited about something new that they are to learn?

Do you think that the prevailing model of ‘forced’ education will ever get kids excited about learning? Is there a better model where kids would love to come to school, day after day?

Would love to hear from the reader.
