As we all are aware that a recent Study conducted by UNESCO also brought out the fact that India receives close to 10 percent of aid to basic education in the world, which is the largest share compared to any other country.
A bench of justices BS Chauhan and FM Ibrahim Kalifulla said "It is unfortunate that today education instead of reforming the human behaviour, in our humble opinion, appear to have failed to achieve its objective. Instead, we find troubled atmosphere in the society at large, which calls for immediate reformation with the efforts of one and all."
Also, the court said "With great respect, it will also have to be stated that bereft of improvement in the educational field when we pose to ourselves the question as to what extent it has created any impact, it will have to be stated that we are yet to reach the preliminary level of achievement of standardized literate behavior."
Moreover, the bench highlighted the fact that in the earlier years, though the literate level was not as high as it now stands, the human value had its own respected place in society.
The Supreme Court said "it is still a matter of concern that so many people are illiterate, and it is imperative that the institution, the teachers, the parents, the students and the society play a role in bringing transformation in the present system."
The bench further ruled that, though it seems to be a great achievement it still remains a matter of concern that still many people in India cannot even read and write and it's time we need to realize these issues. The illiteracy is still ruling and ruining India.
Well, here are some of the recent highlights of Failing Education in India.
Illiteracy in our country is by far the most serious problem. We all recognize that illiteracy is bad and that it prevents the cultural growth of people. But illiteracy in our country continues to exist on an appalling scale. Even today among ten in India about four are found to be illiterate.
Also, A recent survey held on the education imparted in Governmental Schools have revealed that a majority of schools run by the Government lack infrastructure.
The report says that though it's more than 3 years after implementing the RTE Act, it still fails to implement the absolute advantage of this Act to the 95.2% of Government schools across India. It is noted that a classroom should have a minimum of 22, maximum of 44 and 33 students in average, in each section of a private school. There is a different provision for government schools in the Act which the country has failed to overcome.
