  1. Ratna Dhamija says:

    Agree that after 65 years of independence India is still having to deal with illiteracy. It is indeed quite disappointing that we still have first learners in our society therefore the learning levels obviously are low. We only achieved 80-85% access in last few years. Would like to bring on floor two points:

    a. The National Achievement Surveys by NCERT report differently on the learning levels of the students in the different states.

    b. The states need to revive the Government schooling system to the level it was many years ago, if we go back two decades most of the professionals were by-products of government school system. There are number of challenges that a state is facing and needs to address today starting from shortage of teachers, quality of teachers to issues around abilities of administrators.

    I am not completely convinced that the solution to all the issues in the Indian Education system will be resolved by transferring it to Centre.

    It is shocking to learn the all India standerds and also the status of some of the states. After 65years of indepandence we have not done much on education front and the result is in the form of backwordness and powerty. The states at the bottom of the standerds are practically doing nothing in improving the education standerds of the masses. The education in all states should be taken over by the centre.
