School Education Recommendations

National Knowledge Commission

school education
School Education
  • Central legislation for the Right to Education backed by financial commitment:
    • NKC endorses the speedy enactment of a central legislation that will ensure the right of all children in the country to good quality school education up to Class VIII.
    • This should be supported with financial commitments of the central and state governments.

  • More Flexibility in Disbursal of Funds:
    • NKC strongly recommends a system of funds transfer and accounting that will allow for regional and other differences.
    • There should also be greater flexibility in disbursing funds down to the school level and a greater degree of autonomy of local level management in the use of funds.
  • Decentralization and Greater Local Autonomy:
    • Community Participation should be enhanced to ensure accountability.
    • Management of schools, including use of funds should be decentralized to local authorities as far as possible.

School Education
  • Expansion of Functional Literacy:
    • Illiteracy remains a major problem, even among the age-group 15-35 years, and therefore literacy programmes must be expanded.
    • Focus of theses programmes should be directed towards improving life skills and meeting felt needs, especially (but not only) among the youth.
  • Planning for School Infrastructure:
    • Urban master plans and local development plans must explicitly incorporate the physical requirements for schooling, including provisions for playgrounds and other school facilities.

School Education
  • Enabling and Regulation Mechanisms for Private Schools:
    • There should be transparent, norm-based and straightforward procedures for the recognition of private schools.
    • There should also be transparent criteria as for the disbursement of aid from the government to some self-financing schools, and clear norms with respect to the ability of school managements to raise resources from other sources.
    • Attention should be paid to monitoring of private schools, in terms of ensuring a transparent admissions process, regulation of fee structures, as well as meeting minimum set standards for quality.
  • Database on School Education:
    • It is necessary to create a complete database on schools and school-age children so as to track the actual coverage and quality of schooling at different levels.

School Education
  • More co-ordination between departments:
    • There must be greater co-ordination between different departments of government on school education policy, even while ensuring more autonomy to the local management of schools.
  • National Evaluation Body for Monitoring Quality:
    • NKC has proposed a national evaluation body to monitor the quality of both government and private schools, using a results-based monitoring framework based on a short list of monitorable criteria that include both process and outcome indicators.

School Education
  • Revamping School Inspection:
    • The system of school inspection needs to be revamped and revitalised, with a greater role for local stakeholders and greater transparency in the system.
  • Teachers and Teacher Training:
    • Provide more incentives for qualified and committed teachers.
    • Non-teaching official duties such as electoral activities should not be allowed to interfere with the teaching process.
    • Forums that allow and encourage teachers to exchange ideas, information and experiences, including a web-based portal, should be developed.
    • Pre-service training needs to be improved and differently regulated in both public and private institutions.
    • Systems for in-service training require expansion and major reform that allows for greater flexibility.

School Education
  • Reforms in the Curriculum and Examination System:
    • School education must be made more relevant to the lives of children.
    • Need to move away from rote-learning to understanding concepts, developing good comprehension and communication skills and learning how to access knowledge independently.
    • This also requires substantial changes in the examination system.
  • Use of ICT:
    • Wherever feasible, ICT should be made more accessible to teachers, students and administration for learning, training, research, administration, management, monitoring, etc.

School Education
  • English Language Teaching:
    • Introduce English, along with the first language, from Class I.
    • This requires pedagogical changes to contextualise language learning, increasing the availability of English language teachers and providing more bilingual and supplementary teaching materials.
  • Interventions to Ensure Access of Educationally Deprived Categories:
    • Special interventions are necessary to ensure greater access to education of educationally deprived categories, including girl students, SC/ST children, children from backward / remote areas, children of seasonal migrants, Muslim children and differently-abled children etc.
