Specialization in one field not good enough for future jobs, say educationists & employers


Sabina Dewan, President and Executive Director of JustJobs Network was quoted in an article on The Times of India by Sujit John and Shilpa Phadnis.

The article talks about the need for a cross-disciplinary education system in India to meet the needs of the changing dynamic of the world of work. Ms. Dewan was quoted on how technology, urbanization, migration, trade and climate change are drastically reshaping employment and thus it is necessary to equip youths so they are flexible to respond to the new context. She also stated that a few months of training alone cannot compensate for years of poor quality education and thus the change must start with schools.
