The most obvious reaction to this picture is that our education system is flawed and the above problem depicts THE problem - every individual is being given same set of criteria to prove himself/herself. The person behind the table is asking the candidates to perform same act irrespective of the capabilities of the individuals. However, is it really a problem? I don't think so. Real problem is different.
Real problem is why does the elephant want to get evaluated for a criteria which he is not even meant for? Why is fish and dog standing in the same queue which calls for a skill related to climbing a tree? Shouldn't fish be finding a table that asks for swimming or diving skills? Shouldn't dog be standing in a queue that asks for hunting or protection skills? The person behind the table is looking for a specific skill - climbing a tree. Why should he be blamed for not judging the hunting or swimming skills?
I believe the problem is not a single criteria of evaluation. The problem is that everyone is rushing to the single opportunity even if it is not matching their skills, their strengths. Not many people are trying to find opportunities other than the one that is easily visible. If the current system is not presenting the opportunities, we should be creating opportunities ourselves, instead of standing in the queue which doesn't match your capabilities and aspirations. It is in our hands to choose - continue pointing to wrong problem or identify the correct problem and find solution for the same.
