Fifty seven years since we achieved our Political
freedom, we are far from being truly free as we
are yet to achieve Economic and Social freedom.
As Round Tablers we too believe Social,
Economic and Political Freedom can only result
through Education.
Are we really free ?

Schoolhouse

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD THAT INDIA
FACES AN EDUCATION CRISIS?
  • Over 50 million Indian children in the age group
    6 to 14 are out of school
  • Over 68 of all boys and 73 of all girls drop
    out of school before class 10
  • Over 34 of Indias adult population does not
    know how to read or write
  • Almost a third of the entire non-literate adult
    population in the world lives in India

Development Report

THE GOAL IS UNIVERSAL PRIMARY EDUCATION IN INDIA
  • Education allows individuals to get jobs,
    support themselves financially and improve their
    standard of living

Economic development
  • Helps raise awareness of and achieve good health,
    helps protect children from disease

Health
  • Universal primary education has both social and
    economic benefits
  • Helps improve self esteem and status in society
  • Improves the quality of public debate enables
    people to recognise and assert their rights
  • Helps reduce social and communal tensions

Social progress
  • Helps control population growth by raising
    awareness of need for and methods of family
    planning, and giving women a greater say in
    family planning decisions

Extract from the Infrastructure section of
PROBE Survey
  • Buildings soon deteriorate when the roof leaks
    as the monsoons in our country are so generous.
    It disrupts schooling activity. Both teachers
    and parents complained bitterly about the state
    of the school building during the monsoons, when
    teaching activity was often disrupted, sometimes
    for weeks, or even months at a time.

Public Report on Basic Education ( Probe) is an
outcome of a detailed field survey covering
five states. It is acknowledged as a landmark
report, giving the true picture on the status of
Primary Education in the country
The Children huddle in two rooms, on sacking
brought from home. The second room is very
dark. The playground is full of muck and
slime. The overflowing drains could easily drown
a small child. Mosquitoes are swarming. There
is no toilet. Neighbors complain of children
using any convenient place to relieve themselves,
and teachers complain of neighbors using the
playground using the playground as a toilet in
the morning.
