Education is one of the most powerful instruments for reducing poverty and inequality. Education is equally key to enhance ’s competitiveness in the global economy. Therefore, ensuring access to quality education for all, in particular for the poor and rural population, is central to the economic and social development of India.
Monastic orders of education under the supervision of a guru was a favored form of education for the nobility in ancient India. The knowledge in these orders was often related to the tasks a section of the society had to perform. The priest class, the Brahmins, were imparted knowledge of religion, philosophy, and other ancillary branches while the warrior class, the Kshatriya, were trained in the various aspects of warfare. The business class, the Vaishya, were taught their trade and the lowered class of the Shudras was generally deprived of educational advantages.Apart from the monastic orders, institutions of higher learning and universities flourished in India well before the common era, and continued to deliver education into the common era
Education in India is mainly provided by the public sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: federal, state, and local. Child education is compulsorysome responsibilities lying with the Union and the states having autonomy for others. The various articles of the Indian Constitution provide for education as a fundamental right. Most universities in India are Union or State Government controlled.

making the government the major provider of education. However, because of poor quality of public education,
(AFTER 2 PARAGRAPH) * It also enables teachers to instantly assess and evaluate the learning achieved by their students in class with innovative use of technology.* Learning Hour tutors assign relevant Smart Class modules to students to view either before or after a tutoring session to prepare them or concretize the learning in the session. The well-designed modules allow a student to visualise the concepts much better than static images or oral instruction and hence improve learning greatly
Emphasis is laid on passing exams with high percentage.Few institutes give importance to developing personality and creativity among students.which is in many cases not all they have to pay: the cost for the school uniform, school buses, books, miscellaneous materials supplied to students (notes, other paper), school picnic, etc. are not included in the fees. Also, items supplied by the school such as textbooks are sometimes given at a price that is higher than the retail price, even though such items are ordered in bulk.A large number of SSC (State board) students complain that their ICSE and CBSE counterparts are given higher percentages, which gives them an unfair advantage during college admissions. Most colleges though account for these differences during admissions. Generally, ICSE and CBSE certificates are more sought after than SSC certificates, as they are nation wide boards. The syllabi prescribed by the various boards are accused of being archaic and some textbooks (mostly ones written for the SSC) contain many errors
(or even plagiarized). This is attributed to pressure from parents who are eager to see high scores more than overall development.Many allege that only creamy layer of the weaker castes get the benefit of reservations and that forged caste certificates abound. Educational institutions also can seek religious minority (non-Hindu) or linguistic minority status. In such institutions, 50% of the seats are reserved for students belonging to a particular religion or having particular mother-tongue(s). For example, many colleges run by the Jesuits and Salesians have 50% seats reserved for Roman Catholics. In case of languages, an institution can declare itself linguistic minority only in states in which the language is not official language. For example, an engineering college can declare itself as linguistic-minority (Hindi) institution in the state of Maharashtra (where official state language is Marathi), but not in Madhya Pradesh or Uttar Pradesh (where the official state language is Hindi). These reservations have been a cause of heartburn among many. Many students with poor marks manage to get creamy admissions, while meritorious students are left out. Critics say that such reservations may eventually create rifts in the society.Engineering, medical and other lucrative seats are sometimes sold for high prices and ridden with nepotism and power-play.but tough rules and regulations have curbed it. Some state governments have made ragging a criminal offence.
To some of them, their education may have given the technical know-how (though it is hardly conceivable), but not the dream or the inspiration needed. It is the education which should inspire one to become something one really wants to. Education should make you free, should make you experiment and it should make you ask questions. Ultimately, it should make you realize what you are.Youngsters in India, do not have the freedom of selecting there career, it is said. They are forced to become engineers, doctors, MBA’s and IAS officers, it is said. Yes, agree. But that is not the problem. The problem is, youngsters in India do not have the vision to think beyond. Neither their parents, nor their grandparents had that vision. This is where the root of the problem is. Generations have gone through a system which sucks. Now the beauty is even the law-makers and educators of today’s India are products of that age old system. That is why no less than a revolution is needed in the education system in India.
Japan has 110 teachers for 1000 students for engineering, medical and other management courses. Germany has 76 teachers for 1000 students, America has 65, South Korea has 46 and China has 30. But in India there are only 3 teachers for the batch of 1000 students. That is why we are way behind to provide professional education to out students.
Several children do not even get a basic elementary education. Teacher absenteeismand lack of Teacher Accountabilityare the major impediments in providing quality education to the students in public schools.Achievement levels of students are indicators of the quality of teaching – learning in schools. Performance of students continues to remain at low levels both at primary and upper primary levels.Both the private and government schools in smaller towns and villages are uniformly pathetic. “An entire generation of children; free from the burden of poverty; born, educated and employed gainfully is maximizing equal opportunities and reducing the Gender Gap at all levels of education.

The greatest progress will occur in those countries whereeducation is widespread and where it encourages experimentaloutlook. Educational development is a pre-condition of technologicalchange. The investments made in education accelerate economicgrowth. The effective utilization of manpower depends oneducation, training and industrial experience of the people. Educationis a basic infrastructure and it is important as defence of a country.“Education Builds The Man So It Builds The Nation.”
With the gradual rise ofmore complex civilizations in theriver valleys of Egypt andBabylonia, knowledge became toocomplicated to transmit directlyfrom person to person and fromgeneration to generation.To be able to function in complex societies, man needed some way of• accumulating,• recording, and• preserving his cultural heritage, so came the invention of WRITING

On anancient Egyptian clay tablet discovered by archaeologists, achild had written:"Thou didst beat me and knowledge entered myhead."
The History Of Education is the history of teaching andlearning. The earliest known universities, or places of highereducation, started teaching a millennium or more years ago.The Gurukul System ofeducation supported traditionalHindu residential schools oflearning. At the Gurukuls, theteacher impartedknowledge of:•Warfare,•Statecraft,•Medicine•Astrology•Religion•Scriptures•philosophy•Literature
The Nalanda University was theoldest university-system ofeducation in the world. Some of theother universities includeTakshashila University, Ujjain, &Vikramshila Universities.Western education becameingrained into Indian society withthe establishment of the British.Education in India falls under thecontrol of both the UnionGovernment and the states.
Education in India is mainly provided by the public sector.Public educational institutions are part of a largereducational system, which functions as a part of thegovernment and must follow the rules and regulations setby politicians.Control and funding of public educational institutionscome from three levels: federal, state, and local.
By law, public schools must accept all children. In manycases, enrolling your child involves little more than filling out afew forms and providing proof of your address to the local schooldistrict office. In practice, however, getting your child into thepublic school of his or her choice can be much morecomplicated.Finally, at the high school level, many districts in largermetropolitan areas offer special schools with competitiveenrollment based on students GPAs or artistic portfolios.
Its important to note that all teachers in a publicschool are usually state certified or, at a minimum, workingtoward certification. Certification ensures that a teacher hasgone through the training required by the state, whichincludes student teaching and course work.
Women have much lower literacy rate than men. Far fewer girls are enrolledin the schools, and many of them drop out. According to a 1998 report byU.S. Department of Commerce, the chief barrier to female education inIndia are inadequate school facilities and shortage of female teachers.Conservative cultural attitudes, especially among Muslims, prevents somegirls from attending school Recently the Indian government has launchedSaakshar Bharat Mission for Female Literacy, this mission aims to bringdown female illiteracy by half of its present level.

The Mid-day Meal Scheme is the popular name for school mealprogramme in India. The State of Karnataka introduced the provision of cookedmeals in June 2002. It involves provision of lunch free of cost to school-childrenon all working days. The key objectives of the programme are:• protecting children from hunger• increasing school enrolment• attendance• improved socialization• addressing malnutrition.12 crore (120 million) children are so far covered under the Mid-dayMeal Scheme. It has successfully involved private sector participation in theprogramme. One such successful venture is Akshaya Patra, which started withleadership from ISKCON in the Bangalore community. Food is delivered toschools in sealed and heat retaining containers just before the lunch break everyday.
Education in India is also provided by the privatesector.private educational institutions must generatetheir own funding, which typically comes from avariety of sources: tuition; private grants; andfundraising from parents, alumni, and othercommunity members.
• According to current estimates, 80% of alleducational institutions are public educationalinstitutions and 27% of Indian children are privatelyeducated.• Private educational institutions fail to provideeducation to the poorest families.• Private educational institutions do not receive taxrevenues, so they do not have to follow the samesorts of regulations that govern public schools.
• Private educational institutions cover the entirecurriculum and offer extra-curricular activities such asscience fairs, general knowledge, sports, music anddrama.• Private educational institutions must generate theirown funding, which typically comes from a variety ofsources: tuition; private grants; and fundraising fromparents, alumni, and other community members.•Private educational institutions often provide superiorresults than public educational institutions.
Private schools, by their very definition, are selective.They are not obligated to accept every child, so gettingadmitted may involve in-depth applications with multipleinterviews, essays, and testing. Because private schoolsdefine the identity of their communities, they often pick andchoose between candidates based not only on their scholasticachievement but also their ethnicity and religious backgroundas well as the special attributes (or assets) of their parents.
People assume that teachersat private schools are as qualified asthose at public ones, its important tonote that all teachers in a publicschool are usually state certified or, ata minimum, working towardcertification but Teachers in privateschools may not be required to havecertification. Instead, they often havesubject-area expertise and anundergraduate or graduate degree in the subject they teach.

Education builds the man so it builds the nation.Today we claim to be the biggest human resourcessupplier for the world, but are we concerned whatquality of human capital we are building and for whoseneeds? We supply bureaucrats to the government,software engineers to the IT companies around theworld, highly paid managers to the multinationals, wesupply engineers and science graduates as researchersto the foreign universities. What capital are we buildingfor ourselves?
India needs artists who could make its culture themost popular in the world. A culture which is not onlysaleable itself but also helps in selling India’s productsacross the world. In a nutshell, India needs Henry Fords,Bill Gateses, Thomas Alva Edisons and Michael Jacksonsborn and educated in India.India aspires to be powerful, it wants to play a rolein the international community, for that to happen, itseconomy has to grow multifold and for that to happen, itrequires a huge force of entrepreneurs who couldtransform it into a nation which produces, from the onewhich only consumes. India needs a huge force ofinnovators who could make it self reliant in all kinds ofsciences and technologies.
One may say we had few. Yes, we had. M. S.Swaminathan who made India self reliant in foodgrains, Dhiru Bhai Ambani who proved a common mancan become a billionaire, Dr. Varghese Kurien who isthe father of Amul milk movement, Dr. A. P. J. AbdulKalam who dared to build missiles for India, PunditRavishankar who is the ambassador of the Indian musicto the world. Such people though in small numbers, werealways there. But they are not the products of this educationsystem. This system did not teach them how to becomeinnovators or entrepreneurs or artists. Had it done so, theywould have been millions in numbers. These people wereinspired themselves.
1. Best talents of the country working in the education sector.2. A world class infrastructure.3. Greater investments into education, public as well as private.4.

These are some bad effected points which are road-blocksalso. government will open 1500 new universities forIndias population of 130 crore. And central governmenthas shown some seriousness to this recommendation andhas issued ten thousand crores to provide highereducation. 100 IITs and IIMs can be opened every yearwith the money that is transferred to other counties everyyear when Indian students go to those countries.Professionals play an important role in their countryseconomic progress. But it is out misfortune that outschool system is in a dilapidated and devastatedsituation. For the 95 per cent students, technical and workoriented education is just a dream. Professional educationinstitutes are the base of every countrys economicprogress. But the gap between progressing andprogressed countries can not be filled in short term as foras the professional and technical education is concerned.
