After the District Primary Education Programme (DPEP) of 1994, the govt. has now launched the “Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan” or SSA. Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan was launched in 2001 to universalize and improve the quality of elementary education in India.It has set 2007 as the deadline for providing primary education in India and 2010 as the deadline for providing useful and relevant elementary education to all children in the 6 to 14 age group.
American education system requires that students complete 12 years of primary and secondary education prior to attending university or college. This may be accomplished either at public (or government-operated) schools, or at private schools. These 12 years of schooling (or their equivalent) may also be completed outside the USA, thus giving foreign students the opportunity to pursue the benefits of the American education system.
I just cited an example of American system, in many countries like UK and western countries, the techniques adapted for teaching is more advanced than Indian system. In India Projectors are used only in higher education classes but the education system in abroad includes all the virtual techniques and more activities are involved in studies.
The education system in India is based on gaining knowledge about the details in books but it does not involve any personality development in children. The education system in India must include programmes for the personality development which should be main aim of education and all the concerned must be trying to achieve the target of personality development in each children.
The teacher must develop friendly relationship with the students. The involvement of health workers employed by National Rural Health Mission of government of India is appreciable which will help in reducing diseases spread among the children in school level. The Indian syllabus offer only limited subjects for higher education so students are migrating to abroad for higher education for a high cost and getting settled there if the Indian education system can include wide range of subjects and trained teachers then we can utilize our man resources to the maximum to compete against other nations.
