Localised education and Common School system are complementary
I feel, localised education and Common School system are complementary..
We need to incorporate localised education in common school system, where the there would be macro level guidelines for the CSS, and the subjects, and other inner details have to be decided by the local authorities itself.
Btw, we need to empower the people to run the school themselves..
In my village, my father and grandfather studied under a teachers family. They used to teach up to 5th std, and after that, my father went to the nearby town for higher studies.
There were no strict fees collected by the teacher family.. However, most of the farmers give whatever they can to the family to support them.
Its a mutual help and the entire village life was peaceful..
But during 1975's, the government introduced primary school.. many of the villagers felt, that the teacher family run their own school independant of government.. But they handed over the school to government..
Now, its one of the usual primary school, where the teachers would sleep in the class, and the students would sit in the ground.
We need to evolve at a system, where the people in a particular locality participates in the daily functioning of the school, and through community participation
