Logical change in primary education 

In the Rajya Sabha, a bill to eliminate the no-detention policy was passed in the Rajya Sabha till the eighth grade. It is noteworthy that 25 states and parents of the country had demanded to end this policy. It will be within the jurisdiction of the state to adopt the existing system or abolish the No Detention Policy. A section of the Central Government is opposing this decision, saying that it is a violation of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Children, because the purpose of this manifesto is to provide free primary education to students. This protest is not logical, is it only possible to protect the right of children to have their education or failure? Is it not necessary that this aspect be factually analyzed.

Recently, the Union Human Resource Development Ministry has decided to put the ball in the court of state governments on the policy of not failing till the eighth. It is noteworthy that in the past, all the states except Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Kerala had raised the demand to end the policy of not failing till the eighth. The policy of not failing children until the eighth needs to be analyzed on a public platform, as it is directly related to the future builders of the country.

Some reason to Failing children in primary education

The reason for the inclusion of the policy of not failing children in primary education in the new education policy of 1986 was to control the tendency of children to drop out of school prematurely. The policy of not failing by the eighth was first raised in 2012 in the Central Education Advisory Committee. States like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Haryana were then asked to reconsider this policy. Following the recommendation of this committee, the Law Ministry also approved on 25 December 2016. There are many questions that need to be answered here. The first is whether the right to education of children can be protected by passing by eighth grade? Secondly, is education meant for us to be limited to increasing our enrollment level in primary education globally, or is the purpose of 'education' something more than this. Education is not the ultimate knowledge or degree, but is the fundamental process of social progress and improvement. It works in two ways - by guiding children towards values ​​and helping children with personal intellectual development. It is clear that if primary education is to be judged on this criterion, then the results are pointing towards 'emptiness'.

 Step for Improve education level

The obvious reasons for not failing till eighth were to preserve the right to education of children, to relieve the stress caused by the fear of failure and above all to control the tendency of children to leave school. But were we able to preserve the future of children with these priorities? Probably not, because if that were the case, more than 25,000 parents from Haryana would not request the 'State Education Department' in 2015 to properly evaluate their children's qualifications and not pass them in primary classes if they were disqualified. We have to accept that not only the Department of Education and the Subramanian Committee, but the concern of the parents is the declining level of children's education. A nationwide survey of the NGO 'Pratham' found that 50 per cent of the children are those who have reached the fifth grade, but are not able to read the second grade books. The report concluded that half of the children in rural India are in the three levels below normal. Due to these results, two facts are revealed if considered. First, lack of quality of education and second, lack of seriousness towards education due to the feeling of freedom from fear of failure by children.

An important aspect is also that due to this realization of the teacher, eventually the children are scheduled to pass for the second grade, they too are seated with their duties and duties. We must accept that the reason for leaving school is more economic constraints and lack of inclination towards education than passing or failing. If work is done at both these levels, the picture of primary education in the country can change. Do we not accept that the kind of courses that are placed at the primary level for children are neither interesting nor useful. The first and necessary step should be the abandonment of the tradition of rote to impart 'knowledge'. The means of imparting education should be so entertaining that it can generate curiosity to learn more and more within the child.
If India moves towards Digital India, if we include entertaining documentaries for education, then children will surely accept it quickly. An important aspect is also that due to economic constraints, by the sixth-seventh, children leave school to fulfill family responsibilities. Would it not be better under these circumstances to make vocational training a part of the school curriculum? Such programs will also educate children and lead them towards economic dependence. It may be argued that in this context it would be wrong to indoctrinate children towards employment. This aspect is not irrational, but when it comes to livelihoods, the Indian perspective, especially for rural and poor families, bookish education becomes second. Every country has its own priorities and requirements and there should be a structure of education system accordingly. Now the time has come to discuss the utility of education system which has been going on for years.
