  2. 2. stepping stones: enhancing the quality of primary education… hope of primary education
  3. 3. Root cause of India being a developing country follies in its basic education system. The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranks India almost at the bottom of the pack in terms of Maths and English literacy.  The quality of primary education in India has been a cause for concern for quite some time. While the current policy, including a new legislation for universal education, lays out a grand vision of raising children’s education profile, it barely lays emphasis on developing their skills to learn.  Quality education to juvenile is the need of the hour which cannot be side tracked by the government of India. Today, education remains an inaccessible right for millions of children around the world. More than 72 million children of primary education age are not in school and 759 million adults are illiterate and do not have the awareness necessary to improve both their living conditions and those of their children.” Primary education is thus the need of the hour . Though article 45 of directive principle of state policy was committed to ensure free and compulsory education for all ,this did not significantly translate into action and school enrollments and participation remained dismally low. Another attribute of the problem is the quality of education being imparted. According to an international rating system for schools from 74 countries, Indian schools have proved to be far below average. The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranks India almost at the bottom of the pack in terms of maths and English literacy. Experts say this is the clearest sign that India will fail to meet the goal set by the education minister, Kapil Sibal, who has pledged to more than double the size of the country’s higher education system by 2020. They say that while the ambition is laudable, the absence of a long-term strategy to develop faculty will ensure that India’s education dream remains just that.
  4. 4. Lack of quality primary education hinders overall growth of India as a superpower.  Unawareness and Ignorance of parents.  Social causes like child labour, caste system and male dominance.  Lack of basic amenities and facilities for teaching staff. According to The New York Times, at one of the better colleges in India’s capital, there is just one large room for 140 faculty members to sit and have a cup of tea or grade papers. “If even half show up, there aren’t enough chairs,” said Ghazala Amin, a history professor there. “There is no other place to work. In this situation, how do you expect teachers to work?”  Inefficient monitoring of teaching staff results in disinterested, unconcerned teachers.  Lack of efficient education policies, schemes and mismanagement of funds.  Scams in funds proposed for primary education by the government  Latency in government policies. There is an urgent need to improve children knowledge of concepts rather than rote learning. For that to happen, teaching systems at the primary level must be overhauled.
