Points To Ponder

  • India has no policy to regulate functioning of education boards. There are some 50 unrecognised boards.
  • Nearly 58 per cent of our children do not finish primary school. It remains a major lacuna.
  • We have institutions to ensure quality education and teacher training but they are not accountable
