  • Play School- Pre School Education
    • Issues of concern:
    • Huge disparity among the available set ups in terms of-
    • Infrastructure and facilities
    • Curricula and pedagogy
    • Competency of faculty
    • Quality Teacher Training Institutes for NTT /ECE
    • Admission process in formal schools – Ganguly committee recommendations /Fixation of entry age at 4 yrs yet to stand test of time
    • Strategy for the future :
    • Regulatory framework for running a pre-school ( Minimal reqts be defined)
    • An outline of curricula be defined
    • Norms for appointments of faculty be strictly specified & executed
    • Child counselors should be mandatory as advisors for child welfare
    • Wide spread network in rural areas is need of the hour
    • Laying Foundations for the future for sure needs to be taken care of !
  •   Annual Status Education Report
    • In 2009, 96% of children in the age group 6 to 14 in rural India are enrolled in school. 73% of these children are enrolled in government schools and 21.8 % are enrolled in private schools.
    • The overall percentage of children (6-14) who are “out of school” has dropped from 4.3% in 2008 to 4% in 2009.
    • “ Out of school” girls in the age group 11 to 14 has dropped from 7.2% in 2008 to 6.8% in 2009.

    • In Government Schools 17.1 % students take private tuitions, and percentage rises to 30.8 by the time they reach standard 8th.
    • In private schools more than 25% students take private tuitions from standard 1 itself !
    • Is Indian education sector really progressing further with higher enrolment rates?
  • Elementary School Education
    • Issues of concern:
    • Drop out check ( 48% ) ( Kerla /HP/Haryana/Goa doing better)
    • Motivation for enrolment ( Raj /Maharashtra/ Delhi /Uttrakhand doing better)
    • Infrastructure and facilities ( 24 % do not have building /8% no water )
    • Teacher Training ( Gujarat /Assam / Chhatisgrah / TN better performers)
    • Regularity of Faculty ( need to check absenteeism )
    • Less than 11% computer adaptability
    • Strategy for the future:
    • Provision of proper infrastructures CR /Water/Restrooms
    • Motivational incentives for reducing drop outs- Financial assistance to join any school, Scholarships to better performers, Sponsorships from others other organizations /parents /industries
    • For quality education improve regularity of teachers.
    • Intensive teacher training to encourage professional growth.
    • ICT to be made compulsory.

    • Indian Education Sector(IES)  is by far the largest capitalized space in India with $30bn of government spend (3.7% of GDP; at global average), and a large network of ~1m schools and 18,000 higher education institutes. But,  a  literacy rate of 61%  does not do justice to the government spend, does it?
  • Vocational Educational Training
    • Every year 5.5 million students pass out of Class X, of which 3.3 million go to Class XI, leaving 2.2 million out of the education stream and drop out after Class VIII are approx. 20-21 million.

  • Strategies for future…
    • Essential : Specific policy pertaining to level of education/area /problem /regional aspect is the need of the hour as one policy is not going to fit in for all

      • KEY INDUSTRIES INTO EDUCATION… E learning / Goverence /SMS solutions companies will play a huge role to bridge gaps of education sector in almost all areas. Potential can be and should be exploited fully.
    Private Participation …
