Education For All

Essay No. 01

India has a democratic form of government. The people elect their representative by votes. But the people are not very much aware of the rights to vote. It is because they are illiterate. They are easily moved by appeals made in the name of religions , caste and language. Illiteracy is a curse. Have we ever thought that 50 % of the world’s illiterates are Indians? Population – wise out of every 20 people in the world, there are three Indians. Out of these three Indians , only one is literate while two are illiterate. In India illiteracy rate is 64% in which 56% are men and 76% are women. The political power is directly related to the amount of education to change the social structure and social backward condition. States with higher literacy rates have large portion of people taking interest in voting. Education mother’s have a small family of two healthier children at an average while the illiterate mother have six or more children.     

Illiterate people have certain expectations from literary programmes. The meaning of literacy should enable them to lead a better kind of life. The behaviour of literacy teaches fails to treat them as adults. The teachers act in superior manner as we find in case of primary school teachers coaching children. Illiterate people should be involved actively in all learning process. The method of teaching and behavior in class both should be different according to need and experience of adults. The teacher should keep in mind that our learners have

For the purpose of education adults may be divided into two classes – the illiterate and the partially literates. The adult education is based on the idea that no one can be completely happy unless he or she is educated. After all education opens the eye of mind. The minimum that is expected by adult education is the ability to read the daily newspaper and to follow the current events of the world.

Generally almost all the work of adults education is done free. It is done  in spirit of social service. The importance of this adult education has now been fully known all over the country. Students of colleges and schools are taking keen interest in these programmes such as ‘Each one Teach one’ and ‘the National Literacy Mission’. Adult education is   a noble work in which everybody can take part. It is a work of great donation- “Vidya Dan is Maha Dan.”

Education of all

                Every child has the right to free primary education, says Article 28 of the UN convention on the rights of the child.

                In 1986, the National Policy on Education had vowed to provide free and compulsory education to all children upto 14 years of age before the 21st century. India has the largest number of illiterates in the world. Of the 130 million out-of-school children in the world, more than 100 million are in India (60 percent girls), of these (6-14 age group) 30 million have never enrolled in a school. For millions of children, who do not know where their next meal will come from, education is perhaps a luxury. With 150 million children enrolled and an army of 30 lakh teachers, we can boast of the world’s largest elementary education system. The national literacy rate has increased from 15 percent in 1951 to 64 percent in 1998. All state governments have abolished tuition fees in government schools upto the upper primary level. Of 25 states, 15 states and four UTs have passed legislative acts making primary education compulsory. Though access to primary education, retention of students and quality of education have improved, the task of universalisation of elementary education is far from complete.

                There have been several milestones marking India’s commitment to elementary education. In 1992, the Supreme Court held. “The citizens of  the country have a fundamental right to education. The government introduced the 83rd Constitutional Amendment Bill in the Parliament, making right to education from 6-14 years a fundamental right. But the bill which was sent to the Rajya Sabha for discussions may die a natural death, unsung. But laws alone are not enough. Some 60 millions girls between 6-14 years of age are out of school. Girls face discrimination, and may not attend school for reasons like distance or their “better utility” at home. It is the social attitude that discourages girls from becoming educated in the belief that they will no longer remain meek and submissive, qualities essential to make them ideal housewives. To make universal elementary education a reality, local communities and Panchayats have to be mobilized. If there is political will, an initiative such as this will find ready support from the community.

Education for All

Education is a tool that can play a vital role in improving the   socio-economic condition of the nation. It empowers citizens with analytical abilities, leads to better confidence levels and fortifies one with will power and goal setting competencies.

Education involves not only textbook learning but also a growth of values, skills and capacities. This helps individuals to plan for their career as well as play a useful part in building a new society with progressive values. Hence, education results in changing both individual lives as well as that of the entire community for the better. The education sector has been of vital importance to the Indian Government which has been regularly formulating provisions and schemes for promoting elementary education.

The Right to Education has also been enshrined as a Fundamental Right by the Constitution of India. It states that “The State shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of six to fourteen years in such a manner as the State may, by law, determine.”

To promote literacy among its citizens, the Government of India has launched several schemes such as the Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya Scheme, Mid-day Meal Scheme and the National Program for Education of Girls at Elementary Level (NPEGEL). One of the most fundamental and promising of these schemes is the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan is also known as the Education for All movement or ‘Each One Teach One’. It was introduced in 2000-2001 as the flagship programme run by the Government of India. This scheme is framed to provide useful and relevant elementary education for all children in the age group of six to fourteen. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan aims to bridge social, regional and gender gaps, with the active participation of the community in the management of schools.
