An endless debate goes on about equality for all in every field. Much is talked about gender equality and no discrimination to anyone. An endless array of initiatives are taken around the globe to minimize and remove the roots of discrimination on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, gender, background, religion and so on. But to our much disappointment, our efforts are still lagging behind because inequality and biasness still exists. When we talk about equality, it should be practiced around all areas. There seems to be lack of equality in education in India. India has a huge population with a major chunk comprising of school goings and youth. According to the Right to Education Act 2009, schooling is free and compulsory from the age of 6-14. But unfortunately that's not how the reality is. According to current statistics, 4% of children have never seen a school or ever been to it. 58% of kids do not complete primary school which means that they have started school but before even reaching class six, they leave the school. It indicates that more than half percent of the kids have just got enough education to write their name or understand basic alphabets or words. A huge percentage of 90% don't get to complete school. It means that they have not crossed the level of class tenth. They do have basic education but in this fast paced world, they are left far behind because passing merely 10 classes would not help them land anywhere good in life because they lack a degree which is very essential for getting a good job. Another fact that only 10% of the students complete college level education is sad because the percentage is very low. The stats indicate a bad situation because in order for any country to progress, their youth serves as a backbone. But if the youth is uneducated then the country is crippled as the shoulders that have to carry the burden of the state are weak. Despite the fact that efforts are taken to make education free and widespread for all and sundry, its implementation seems to have many problems. The backward and disadvantaged groups of the society are far from availing this facility because the implementation of this act requires major efforts to be taken all across the nation which is difficult and time consuming job. There should be no discrimination between rich and poor in the attainment of education. It should be made and compulsory and accessible for all. As majority of people in India are poor and they do not have enough resources to send their kids to school, it is the job of the government to make it accessible and cost free for them. Efforts should be taken all across the nation to develop institutes that can provide affordable and quality education to everyone without any discrimination. Institutes should be developed that follow global educational standards and they should get accreditation so their quality standard is ensured. Support from government can help alter the situation and make things better for a prosperous future of the nation and its inhabitants.
