India Education

"The twain that bore of numbers and of letters give

Are eyes, the wise declare, to all on earth that live."

Learning is excellence of wealth that none destroy;

To man nought else affords reality of joy". --Thirukkural

Today India may not be the world leader in education but it is the country, which is credited with developing the numeral system of the world.

When the whole world was deep asleep in darkness of ignorance Indians were busy discovering new things. Even today India has largest number of graduates in the world.


History
Education in India has a very long history. Ancient India had the tradition of 'Gurukuls'. Under this system students have to live at the 'Ashram' (abode) of the teacher and get the education. This form of the education is known as 'Guru-Shishya Pramapara'.

At that time education was treated as a matter of personal concern and it was not at all emphasized on mass production like modern education industry. The making of man was regarded as an artistic and not the mechanical process. According to the ancient Indian education the training of the mind and the thinking process were essential for the acquisition of knowledge.

The formal admission ceremony was known as 'Upanayana'. With the accomplishment of this ceremony the child had to leave his home for the 'ashrama' where he would receive education. It was supposed to be the re-birth of the child and was known as 'Dvijya', which means, "twice born". Sanskrit was the language of teaching. It was supposed to be the language of learned men. The academies of higher learning were known as 'Parisads'. The education system involved of three basic processes, which included 'Sravana', 'Manana' and 'Nidhyasana'.

In the 'Sravana' stage of education, students received 'shrutis' knowledge, which was passed orally from one generation to another. The second stage was 'Manana' which means that pupils had to think themselves about what they have heard. They have to make their own inferences and assimilate the lesson taught by their teacher into the life. The third stage 'Nidhyasana' means complete comprehension of truth and its use in the life.

In ancient India women were given the equal right to education and teaching. Women seers like 'Gayatri' were prominent participants in educational debates and the proceedings of the 'Parishads'.( Assemblies) It was mainly the Brahmins followed by Kshatriyas that received education at the Gurukuls while the boys from the lower caste learnt their family trade from their fathers.

Few of the most important universities of India in the ancient times were Taxila, Vikramshila and Nalanda. Taxila University of 7th century BC was famous for medical studies and a galaxy of eminent teachers such as Panini, the well known grammarian, Kautilya, the minister of Chandragupta Maurya, and Charaka, a medical teacher of repute.

Nalanda was the highest learning center not just of India but also of the entire South Asia. Students from foreign countries like China, Japan, Korea used to come here for higher studies. It had around 10,000 students and teachers on its roll cards. The University had eight colleges. And one of the colleges had four-storied building. It was one of the earliest examples of residential cum learning complex.

Vikramshila University. Varanasi was famous for religious teachings. In the South, Kanchi was famous for its studies while the Vallabhi University was no less. Huan Tsang in his records mention the university to be at par with Nalanda and Vikramshila universities.

India had several great minds at work, which contributed in every aspect of life. The concept of zero, decimal and Pythagoras Theorem were all developed here.

As India progressed from ancient to medieval its education system deteriorated. Various factors were responsible for the degradation of this most efficient and most ancient education system of the world.

Present
The present educational system of India is an implantation of British rulers. Wood's Dispatch of 1854 laid the foundation of present system of education in India. Before the advent of British in India, education system was private one. With the introduction of Wood's Dispatch known as Magna Carta of Indian education, the whole scenario changed. The main purpose of it was to prepare Indian Clerks for running local administration. Under it the means of school educations were the vernacular languages while the higher education was granted in English only. British government started giving funds to indigenous schools in need of help and thus slowly some of the schools became government-aided.

Contemplating on the new system which was introduced Mahatma Gandhi expressed his anguish in following words, "I say without fear of my figures being challenged successfully, that today India is more illiterate than it was fifty or a hundred years ago, and so is Burma, because the British administrators, when they came to India, instead of taking hold of things as they were, began to root them out. They scratched the soil and began to look at the root, and left the root like that, and the beautiful tree perished. The village schools were not good enough for the British administrator, so he came out with his program. Every school must have so much paraphernalia, building, and so forth. Well, there were no such schools at all. There are statistics left by a British administrator which show that, in places where they have carried out a survey, ancient schools have gone by the board, because there was no recognition for these schools, and the schools established after the European pattern were too expensive for the people, and therefore they could not possibly overtake the thing. I defy anybody to fulfill a program of compulsory primary education of these masses inside of a century. This very poor country of mine is ill able to sustain such an expensive method of education. Our state would revive the old village schoolmaster and dot every village with a school both for boys and girls. "

Today education system in India can be divided into many stages.

  • Pre- Primary - It consists of children of 3-5 years of age studying in nursery, lower kindergarten and upper kindergarten. At this stage student is given knowledge about school life and is taught to read and write some basic words.

     
  • Primary - It includes the age group of children of 6-11 years studying in classes from first to fifth.

     
  • Middle - It consists of children studying in classes from sixth to eighth.

     
  • Secondary - it includes students studying in classes ninth and tenth.

     
  • Higher Secondary - Includes students studying in eleventh and twelfth classes.

     
  • Undergraduate - Here, a student goes through higher education, which is completed in college. This course may vary according to the subject pursued by the student. For medical student this stage is of four and a half years plus one year of compulsory internship, while a simple graduate degree can be attained in three years.

     
  • Postgraduate - After completing graduation a student may opt for post graduation to further add to his qualifications.


Education Governing Bodies
 
  • The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE): This is the main governing body of education system in India. It has control over the central education system. It conducts exam and looks after the functioning of schools accredited to central education system.
     
  • The Council of Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE): It is a board for Anglo Indian Studies in India. It conducts two examinations 'Indian Certificate of Secondary Education' and 'Indian School Certificate'. Indian Certificate of secondary education is a k-10 examination for those Indian students who have just completed class 10th and Indian school certificate is a k-12 public examination conducted for those studying in class 12th.
     
  • The State Government Boards: Apart from CBSE and CISCE each state in India has its own State Board of education, which looks after the educational issues.
     
  • The National Open School: It is also known as National Institute of Open Schooling. It was established by the Government Of India in 1989. It is a ray of hope for those students who cannot attend formal schools.
     
  • The International School: It controls the schools, which are accredited to curriculum of international standard.

Elementary Education
According to the Constitution of India, elementary education is a fundamental right of children in the age group of 6-14 years. India has about 688,000 primary schools and 110,000 secondary schools. According to statistics two third of school going age children of India are enrolled in schools but the figures are deceptive as many don't attend schools regularly. At least half of all students from rural area drop out before completing school. The government has rolled out many plans to increase the percentage of elementary education. The plans such as 'Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA), District Primary Education Program (DPEP), Operation Blackboard, Mid Day Meal have been successful to great extent.

Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA)
The main goal of this program is that all children of 6-11 years of age should complete primary education by the year 2007 and all children of 6-14 years of age should complete eight years of schooling by 2010.

The final step is achievement of the goal of education. The main components of this program are:
  • Construction of classrooms and new schools
  • Opening of non-formal schooling centers
  • Setting up early childhood education centers.
  • Appointment of teachers.
  • Providing education to disabled children.
The program has been successful to the large extent as 1,60,000 schools and 84,000 alternative schools have been opened under this program. And work is going on for the construction of new buildings of 52,758 schools. 4,20,203 disabled students have been successfully enrolled into the schools.

It was started in 1987-88. The aim of this program is to improve human and physical resource availability in primary schools of India. According to this program every primary school should have at least two rooms, two teachers and essential teaching aids like blackboard, chalk, duster etc.

National Bal Bhavan
The National Bal Bhavan was opened with the aim of developing overall personalities of children of all strata of society irrespective of their caste, creed, religion and gender. It supplements school education by helping children to learn in play way and natural environment.

Education Policy
The national policy of education (1986) and program of action (1992) lay down the objectives and features of Indian education policy. It includes:
  • Development of International cooperation and peaceful coexistence through education.
  • Promotion of equality. It could be achieved by providing equal access and equal condition of success to children.
  • A common educational structure (10+2+3) for the whole of India.
  • Education for women's equality. The Indian education should be used as a tool to change the status of women in the society.
  • Equalization of SC population with others in the matter of education. This is ensured by giving incentives to parents who send their children to schools, providing scholarship to SC students for higher studies, reservation of seats in institution of higher studies in India, recruitment of SC teachers.
  • Opening of primary schools in tribal area for promotion of education in ST people.
  • Development of curriculum and study material in the language of tribal people.
  • Emphasis on the education of minorities.
  • Adult education - Initiation of National Literacy Mission, for teaching illiterate people of age group 15-35. And making them aware of the day-to-day realities of their surroundings.
  • Increasing the scope of Operation Blackboard for upliftment of standard of primary education in India.
  • Secondary education curriculum should expose the students to differentiated roles of science, the humanities, and social science. .
  • Redesigning of courses of higher education to meet the increasing demand of professionalism.
  • Providing enhanced support to the research work in Universities. Efforts to relate ancient Indian knowledge with the contemporary reality.
  • Setting up of Open Universities and Distance Learning centers to promote the goal of education as a life long process.
  • A combined perspective of technical and management education.
  • Minimum exposure to computers and training in their use to be the part of professional education.
  • The All India Council for Technical Education will be responsible for maintenance of norms and standards, accreditation, funding, and monitoring of technical and management education in India.
  • Multiple task performance for teachers such as teaching, research, development of learning resource material, extension and management of the institution.
  • Providing teachers a better deal to make education system in India work in proper way, as teachers are the backbone of the system. Providing better facilities to institutions and improved services to students.
  • Development of languages in great deal.
  • Measures to be taken for easy accessibility of books at minimum costs to all sections of students.
  • The purpose of examination to be to bring about qualitative improvement in education. It should discourage memorization. - (Highly agreed by Kenneth, that's why as of now our Indian Education System Sucks).
  • Methods of teacher recruitment to be recognized one to ensure merit and objectivity in the system. - (Highly agreed by Kenneth - Very important for quality education of the kids (tomorrow's future), that's why the mental balance and the visionary of the teacher should be assesed.)
  • Reviewing of educational developments by the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE)
  • Review of the implementation of the parameters of the policy every five years. (Highly agreed by Kenneth, otherwise the teachers or the management tends to take the system for granted.)
  • Strengthening the base of pyramid of Indian population for proper development of education system in India. .

National Policy of Education (1992) laid down many objectives for the development of education system in India but it has not been successful in achieving all of them. It has specified that the examination system should discourage the memorizing but it is what is going on. The education in India seems to encourage rote learning instead of experimentation and questioning. There is some disparity in assessment as all the State Boards have different standards of evaluation.

The reservation on the basis of caste and religion is also a negative point in Indian education. Corruption is visible in the allocation of seats of institutions of higher studies and student politics is another sore point. These are some of the issues, which need to be worked upon. (Solution by Kenneth - Should bring in a system, wherein our politician's should not be allowed to maintain bank accounts and other assets, this should be similar to the Catholic missionary principles wherein the priests are not allowed to have their own accounts or any assets of their own. This will solve the problem... Therefore politicians will be only those who really want to serve our humanity or man-kind.)

Though there are disparities between the objectives and their implementation in education (why?? bcoz of some silly self centred crooks) but still education system in India has come a long way and will continue to improve in the future.

  • Ayurveda is the earliest school of medicine known to the world and 'charaka' is known as the father of Ayurveda. He developed this system some 2500 years back.
