India is on the road to revolutionizing its education system to build a brighter future for its nation. Nations that have achieved a status and fame in the world have achieved it through their hard work, blood and sweat. They have made efforts to develop infrastructure that could provide them an environment that is conducive to learning and development. Nations have developed such expertise and facilities for its natives and born the fruits of it. India is also following the footsteps of such nations and trying to embark on this strength. India has made sincere efforts towards this and for this purpose; it has taken the initiative of making education free and compulsory at the elementary level. It has introduced the Right to Education Act which allows children aged from 6 to 14 to attain free education. Despite sincere efforts by the government, the picture still seems grim. Making education free does not solve the problem. Merely sitting in the school and repeating what teachers speak word after word does no good to these kids. It has been observed through a report that the quality of learning in India amongst these kids is declining. The quality of learning is determined by the reading, writing and arithmetic skills of these young students. The report that is prepared by the non-profit Pratham Education Foundation states that during the period of nine years, the quality of learning of these kids has shown no real improvement or actually has worsened. According to the report, the children that are now studying in class 5 and who can read the text of class 2 students has declined by 15%. Similarly, the percentages of students of class 8 who can solve mathematics problems and do divisions have declined by 23%. The number of students who enrolled in the schools has changed. It has shown a progress. In 2005, the percentage of students was 93% but now the situation has changed to 97%. It seems like the major focus of this act is not on making students learned and informed but instead it focuses on enhancing the enrollment of students in schools. This is coming at the expense of government because free education is funded by the Indian government but if it is not fulfilling the intended purpose then it is of no use. Now in this situation, the government faces even bigger challenges. They have to take serious measures to improve the quality of learning by the students. They need to focus on developing such schools that are providing quality education and are accredited by national accreditation board. This would help building a certain standard for the schools and they would follow certain guidelines that would improve the situation. Moreover, government can take further steps to make the situation work in their favor. The government can introduce a pre schooling education sector that can help developing a mechanism for students that provides an environment for learning and opening of the mind towards picking up things. Furthermore, quality of teachers should be improved. Measures like inclusion of pertinent syllabus, learning environment, less focus on making things memorized, regional accreditation and encouraging and debating environment would also help to improve the situation.
