Improved Access to Quality Education

Educational and training facilities have been increasing rapidly. However, access, affordability, and quality remain serious concerns. Employability is also an issue. How can we improve the quality and the utility of our education, while ensuring equity and affordability?

Should vocational streams have the same access to higher education as academic streams? If so, how?

Imparting education through audio-video multimedia mechanism which is developed uniformly on a national wide basis containing state of the art multimedia content is necessary. An attempt was made in Andhra Pradesh in the early 90s called Tele School which was quite successful but was later discarded due to high costs of VCRs. Now as the cost of delivering such technology has drastically come down i believe it can be implemented through phases. Such attempt might improve the quality

The previous solution suggested is good additional to that i will say that there must be good training for teachers especially for primary school teachers so as to teach the children in a more friendly way somewhat like "Education with Fun or sports", the focus must be on knowledge & education not just on results.
secondly there has to be some incentive for good teachers & if all teachers are supposed to get equal salary then why will one show & give his extra effort. So my point is the professionalism must be imparted with community service feeling in faculty. For this there must a monitoring authority which will inspect the school infrastructure, meal quality, knowledge standard among kids periodically but not on definite dates.
Thirdly, there has to be separate work force for census, election duty, polio programs and not teachers so that they can give the society what they are hired for.
Most importantly primary education should be given in mother toungue, and with that he must be taught english so that later on he won't feel himself back in the race.
Last but not the least, efforts must be for imparting Moral education into kids.

the implementation of RTE and issues of quality concerns can be answered in the following ways:-

1.) follow the model of NPTEL (all IITs and IISc have the lectures in the form of PPT and video lectures)

2.) internet penetration has reached to hinterlands of india. so use skype or any other video conferencing tool to conduct classes.

3.) make it mandatory for students of institutes like IIT and IIMs to take up teaching for one year and as a part of course curriculum. we should take output from some of the best brains of india.

4.) standardize all the boards. there is no point in having so many state boards and a CBSE and ICSE.

5.)quarterly audits should be conducted by concerned authorities. in villages preferably by the panchayats.

6.) there are so many educated home makers in india. train them and involve them in teaching using appropriate video conferencing techniques.

7.) please also make rules for promotion and passing stringent. students should not be pampered too much.

First I feel we need to talk about what we mean by "quality" education. What is the goal of such a quality education?

Teachers are needed by the million. Technology can certainly help in reaching out to larger masses and ensures 'uniformity' of facilitation standard. Is this quality?

What do the learners want to learn? Why is so much of our focus teaching oriented... if we don't make the learning about learners then how do we hope to get their spirit? distract them with colorful graphics?

Children are curious by nature. Can we design curriculums and schools (infrastructure + culture) and especially train teachers to nurture natural learning to happen where teacher does not interfere in the learning process through "unasked" teaching?

Is it true that the quality of learning is heavily dependent on the teacher.. could it be that quality of learning is heavily dependent on the teacher not INTERFERING with the natural learning that occurs in learners when they are in a stimulating environment?

Already a lot is being done to build "hardware" (buildings, audio-visual aids, equipments, computers, labs, etc. Hrdly anything is being done towards building the much needed "software" i.e. the motivational aspect at the primary/elementary education level. Without proper "software" we cannot hope to shape the young minds towards becoming valued citizens of the country, towards pursuing excellence with humane orientation.. No wonder, the idealist youngster, within a few years of entering into productive jobs, turns into a self-seeking corrupt, with mind-set of casteism, nepotism and corruption. There is far greater need for building "software" part of our immense human resource. Let the great minds work hard to develop this softest of the soft side of human "software '..

"Quality Education" I am Talking about the Sponsored scheme for Providing Quality Education in Madarsas (SPQEM) of Govt. of India. Very effective and very success scheme for modernizing Madarsa Education and in Uplift of Muslim minorities educational Standard in Indian Madarsas. I am thankful to those mind who make so effective and good scheme which is definitely boon for Madarsa modern Education But one thing went wrong that Budget provision for this scheme was only 325 crore for 11th five year plan. About 90% Madarsas of India send their Proposals for implementation in this scheme but due to lack of budget provision about 70% salaries of Madarsa teachers is pending in HRD. There is about an amount of 262 crore of Madarsa teachers Salary is pending only of Uttar Pradesh and a big amount of many other state madarsas of India. This scheme needed Budget Provision of 3250 crore in 12th five year plan about ten times the previous in 11th five year plan. This scheme is important to make madarsa students very secular and it will remove educational backwardness of Muslim minorities to make India develop and definitely this scheme will prove a mile stone in Upliftment of Minorities educational Standard. I think that the maker team of 12th five year plan will make it more effective for a better future of prosperous and develop India. There will be blessings from the side a large no of madarsa teachers and madarsa students to the futre making team of minority education in 12th five year plan.
