In India, in the last few decades, significant progress has been made towards universalization of primary education, access to school and infrastructure, teacher-pupil ratio, improvement in girls’ enrolment, etc. However, our poor educational outcomes and inefficient education systems are eliciting deep concern from all stakeholders.
Education is the most powerful instrument for reducing poverty and inequality. Education is a force multiplier that enables self-reliance, boosts economic growth by enhancing skills, and improves people’s lives by opening up opportunities for better livelihoods. It is the key to enhance India’s competitiveness in the global economy. Ensuring access to quality education for all, in particular for the poor and rural population, is central to our economic and social development. Education is, understandably, one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future.
