Community Education need to be developed as a specialised discipline
We have seen in the last sixty years since our independence that we could not make all the citizens truely literate in our country. Same is the story in every underdeveloped or developing country. If knowledge is going to be the principal tool for human development can we afford a large chunk of a population remaining iliterate? Wouldn't we be creating a different kind of Jamindari where educated people will get access to all the opportunities and those who couldn't get educated will be the subject matter of abject poverty and will remained deprived of opportunities. The system of education which is in vogue has not delivered to the fullest extent. Don't we need to evolve an education system which is community centric?
