Standard / Quality of education in Govt. Schools
« on: September 18, 2010, 07:44:53 AM »
Educated, in name only
Fifth graders that can barely read

The spectacle of boys and girls in the age group of six to 14 growing up without entering a school is bad enough. Even worse is the plight of those who do go to school but are hardly educated. The Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) recently put out by Pratham shows that almost half of Class V children in rural India can only read Class II text. That means that their reading capability is three grades behind in learning levels. Not only that, the all-India percentage for all Class V rural students who can read Class II text has declined from 56.2 per cent in 2008 to 52.8 per cent in 2009. Those in the same grade in government schools who can do divisions has plummeted from 41 per cent in 2007 to 36.1 per cent now. Almost 64 per cent Class V government school students in India cannot do divisions; only 56.3 per cent can do subtractions.

These shocking figures underline two facts. One, primary education is in disarray in the country. Two, the state of affairs in rural areas is pathetic. Every now and then, the media has to highlight the plight of some schools where there are either no teachers or very few. Then there are also cases of schools where the appointed teachers sub-let their jobs to someone else, giving a fraction of the salary they take from the government to the surrogate teachers. All that proves that some schools only impart degrees, not education.

When the foundation is so weak, children are bound to face all sorts of difficulties when they go in for higher education. Whether it is the civil services or the IITs, majority of seats are grabbed by students coming from metropolitan areas, for the simple reason that their country cousins start with a huge handicap. The sufferer is the country as a whole. If Russia could compete creditably with the US in the space race despite limited financial means, it was only because the educational grounding of its children was better. India is frittering away any such advantage.

Punjab Newsline Network
Friday, 06 January 2012
By Satinder Bains
CHANDIGARH: People's Party of Punjab(PPP) has proposed to announce education emergency in Punjab and bring adminsitrative reforms beside other measures with in first 100 days of governance, if voted to power in the state.

Manpreet Singh Badal President of PPP while releasing the agenda of first 100 days of governance said that he was committed to restore the rule of law in state. There were two sets of law, different for the poor and the rich but he would ensure equality. He said that VIP culture will be eliminated with in 100 days and all elected repersentatives and officers would surrender the personal security. He particularly assured the NRIs that their lives and properties would be made secure in the hom state. A group of NRIs especially came from Canada and USA, present there, admired the PPP agenda and assured full support. Manpreet announced two tickets for NRIs.

Elaborating his plan of education emrgency, Manpreet Badal said that he feel like crying when he wee the state of education. It is shameful that we are producing illeterate future generations. He said that people in Punjab had a wrong notion that owing property and money is symbol of richness. He said that people like his uncle and Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and former Chief Minister Harcharan Singh Brar owned huge wealth and became leaders due to money power, not their wisdom. he said that he would slash 5 percent of all the plans and divert to education. He said that respective governments reduced investment in education and promoted private education. He said that after 15 years every Punjabi would be proud to be a literate person. He said that during education emrgency he would ensure that state owned education sectro grows and become a model for the coungtry.

Manpreet Badal said that Punjab was in grip of drugs and it needs total overhaul. He said that he would bring a legislation to declare all the wealth owned by drug smugglers an illegal asset. He said that breaking Police-Politician nexus and bringing administrative and police reforms was top of his agenda. He said that all elected members of legislative assembly and officers would be made to submit their annual financial statements in the Vidhan Sabha. Setting up Lok Pal at state and district level is another major administrative reform, he promised. He added that the Lok Pal will be appointed from outside the state.

He said that for the first six months there weill be no tranfers of doctors and teachers and all the issues of agitating teachers will be resolved with in 100 days. Debt waiver, employment commission and reservation for border area people in the jobs are other issues on his mind. Restructuring of agriculture and promoting dairy farming are few priorities for agriculture sector.

Manpreet Badal ruled out possibility of merger of his party or alliance for forming a government. He said that PPP and Sanjha Morcha are claimant of power in the state. He said that they will deliver to people for which they (people) have pinned hoped on them.
