Focus on increasing equity and access to education

 

India requires to focus on increasing equity and access, improving quality and ensuring that education develops knowledge and skills in areas such as sustainable development and employability, A Navaneethakrishnan, Chairman, Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission, said.

The private sector and Government should evolve a partnership to make education system more effective, he said in his address at the 30th Convocation of Bharathiar University here.

Stating that the aim should be at providing a holistic and man making education, he said that use of new technologies and scientific knowledge in the delivery of education services and promotion of scientific and technological interventions will have a significant impact not only on the quality but also on its accessibility to the rural people, in particular the disadvantaged sections.

Access to quality education was imperative not only to reduce social and regional disparities, but also to achieve balanced growth and development, he said.

Pointing out that graduate employablity was a growing concern, with the responsibility vaguely placed on both tertiary institutions and employing institutes, Navaneethakrishnan said "we need to consider interactive spaces, educational mobility and the growing dependency on technology."
