    NEW DELHI: Making significant progress, India has reduced its "out of school" children by over 90 per cent and has achieved "universal primary education", said a UNESCO global education report released today. "In fact, India is predicted to be the only country in South and West Asia to have an equal ratio of girls to boys in both primary and secondary education," the report released by HRD Minister Smriti Irani said. The Education for All 2000-2015 report said that while globally 47 per cent of the countries achieved universal pre- primary enrolment, eight per cent of the countries including India were close to achieving so. The report, though, called upon the international community to find, in partnership with countries, the means to bridge the USD 22 billion annual financial gap for quality pre-primary and basic education for all by 2030. Addressing the meet, Irani said the initiatives to improve the enrolment level and "a new paradigm of education that fosters knowledge, analytical skills, vertical reasoning and the ability to imagine beyond the given is being adopted". This is being carried out recognising the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of making education a pillar in nation's character building, she said, adding enhanced focus was being laid on science and mathematics which are central to school education. The UNESCO report also noted the achievement of gender parity in India but said the country is yet to achieve significant progress in adult literacy. It said 32 per cent of the countries including India are still "very far" from achieving it. The report called upon all the countries to ensure that children and adolescents complete pre- primary, primary and lower secondary education by 2030.

    Excellent news. :thumb:


    Still 1.4 million is a very large number. Technology can be a game changer here. Video conferencing, CCTV and biometric attendance systems for teachers and other staff could dramatically turn around the dreaded "sarkari school" system. Some state governments are working on this but investment required is huge.

    Well first question that comes into my mind: all boys and girls who finish primary and secondary school where they will work? Is not enough you finish a school you also must apply what you have learned somewhere. And whit poor industrialisation in rural places what they will do? Also what means secondary school in india? High school? Well that is upper learning and means it need industry in rural places. Also ok they will finish high school but if the data in manuals are outdated and learn stuff that were learned 50 years ago? Teachers are up to date whit everithing? Universities were teachers are formed do have at least introduction in new things? A paper magazine or something that provide rural teachers new things and them to tell to childs would be welcomed. Basic needs of people have changed? They are the same basic needs as 50 years ago?

    Wow.

    A weapon is a product.

    Education is a policy.

    Get it?

    One of the cornerstones of Finnish education policy is one size fits all(on a macro level), on a micro level they can innovate, none of this is possible with India since the population is too large and too diverse to allow either.

    Because there arent policy for homogenize population. For example a policy that deliver to some shools, where there arent , tools for education. I see there are also programs to electrify india. That would give opportunities to make education trought tv and radio to free acces to new mentality. Would help developing local areas because of tv publicity, introducing new tehnology throught tv and most important people will buy electric things that will also make new markets in local
    area.

    It is BECAUSE of our system that we are homogenous... There were every change to develop to other direction also. India is in a crossroads, choose wisely....


    Social security in Finland, or welfare in Finland, is, compared internationally, very comprehensive. In the late 1980s, Finland had one of the world's most advanced welfare systems, one that guaranteed decent living conditions for all Finns. Since then social security has been cut back, but still the system is one of the most comprehensive in the world. Created almost entirely during the first three decades after World War II, the social security system was an outgrowth of the traditional Nordic belief that the state was not inherently hostile to the well-being of its citizens, but could intervene benevolently on their behalf. According to some social historians, the basis of this belief was a relatively benign history that had allowed the gradual emergence of a free and independent peasantry in the Nordic countries and had curtailed the dominance of the nobility and the subsequent formation of a powerful right wing. Finland's history has been harsher than the histories of the other Nordic countries, but not harsh enough to bar the country from following their path of social development.[1]
    Welfare in Finland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    According to Finnish sociologist Erik Allardt, the hallmark of the Nordic welfare system was its comprehensiveness. Unlike the welfare systems of the United States or most West European countries, those of the Nordic countries covers the entire population, and they are not limited to those groups unable to care for themselves. Examples of this universality of coverage are national flat-rate pensions available to all once they reached a certain age, regardless of what they had paid into the plan, and national health plans based on medical needs rather than on financial means. In addition, the citizens of the Nordic countries have a legal right to the benefits provided by their welfare systems, the provisions of which were designed to meet what was perceived as a collective responsibility to ensure everyone a decent standard of living. The Nordic system also is distinguished by the many aspects of people's lives it touched upon.

    It is apparent that @jouni does not know the meaning of "homogenous".

    Do everyone a favour and get hold of a dictionary.

    I checked, you might wanna check what these are...and how many of you are using them...


    ( NOTE: I am not suggesting that Indians are animals ( horse in this case ). Just thinking that some Indians focus blindly on one thing and are unable to understand other solutions ( just like horse, who with eye covers can only look to one direction )).

    Now, I even doubt your logical and critical thinking skills. Earlier I only thought your English vocabulary was not up to the mark.
