The survey also said that 75 per cent teachers have called for restructuring of course curriculum in collaboration with industry.

'The Pearson Voice of Teacher Survey' also found that teachers in Delhi do not think that the education system in the country is providing holistic education to students.

"Only 46 per cent of teachers in the capital feel that education system is providing holistic education," it said.
