Education is the systematic way of learning information or getting knowledge about any kind of existing living or non living things in this world. The famous president of South Africa Mr. Nelson Mandela has rightly made a sentence about the education that “Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world”. We all somehow completely accept these wordings. Education can be the life changing element for us in all prospects like:
- In matter of making us earnable so that we can easily fulfil all the demand raised by our family members.
- Providing us knowledge regarding any such issue that we have imagined or listened somewhere.
- To make our kids manner full, gentle and decent in front of others.
- To change our own point of view regarding any social issue that has influenced many people of India with negative thoughts like child labour, male female discrimination, dowry system and many more.
Importance of Education for Individual:
We cannot reserve the right of education for any individual group of people. The importance of education is same for all, especially for kids and women, it is highly essential. In present time after seeing the situation of women in India, we can say that education is the best option for them by which they can improve their life in a better way.
Government has also focused on women and child education by launching many schemes in manner to provide them proper education. “Saakshar Bharat Mission for Female Literacy” is one of the latest schemes which are launched by Government to reduce the illiteracy rate of women in India. Many other schemes are launched by government time to time for increasing the literacy rate of children and women in India. According to “Right to education act”, it has been made compulsory for all children of age 6 to 14 years to get basic education from any authorized school. Mid day meal, scholarship, reservation, free books, free uniforms, etc are the some attractive programs launched by the government to provide education to more girls and poor children.
Education in Rural Areas:
Though rate of education in rural areas has been increased in recent past years but still government could not get complete success in bringing education to those backward areas. Behind this failure many reasons can be counted, some of them are: lack of good teachers and lack of proper resources and awareness about education. Schools in rural areas are still very few in count and sometime one school between two villages thus lack of accessibility is the another reason for low literacy rate in rural areas. Available private schools in rural areas are generally not preferred by poor people due to their expensive fees, uniform and other goods. Government has now become strict towards the education in rural areas too and applying many schemes for improving the poor situation of education over there.
We can surely say that education is the best saving for any particular person which he or she can use in their unstable time period of life. We have seen so many examples regarding advantages of education thus it should be fundamental right of each and every child in manner to provide them a life with health, wealth and financial security.

Education System in India:
In India, education system is operated by National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) which is responsible for all matters regarding education throughout the country and further each state has its own organization with name of State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) which decides the strategies, course, curriculum or schemes regarding education. Education is provided under two sectors public or private with two major streams which conduct their own examination in secondary (10th standard) and higher secondary (12th standard).

In both sectors, education is provided in (10+2+3) pattern which consist a systematic way of getting education. Here 10 years of education consist primary and secondary education with all subjects except difference in subject of mother tongue, 2 years for getting higher secondary education (with either arts or science subjects) and 3 years for bachelor degree in any stream of arts, science or commerce. After graduation students are advised to do master degree as per qualification, interest or capability. Thus we can say that majorly four levels of education are required for completion of education process, these are:
- Primary Education
- Secondary Education
- Higher Secondary Education
- Professional Education
In India, primary education (also can be referred as elementary education) has been made compulsory for small age children of age 6 to 14 years, and this was announced by government under act of “right to education act” which was made to recover the poor situation of children in India who are captivated in social crime of child labour, child abuse or child exploitation. In India, level of primary education in rural areas is not so well as compared to urban areas. Due to lack of infrastructure and other facilities in government running schools, ratio of number of teachers and number of students is far differ.
In recent past years, government has majorly focused on primary education throughout the country. A program, District Education Revitalisation Program (DERP), was launched by central government to enhance the quality of primary education across the country. And the better result has also been viewed in terms of increased literacy rate in both urban and rural areas of country.
After primary education, students are required to study secondary education which is counted till class 10th and further followed by higher secondary education means class 11th and 12th. This stage of learning system prove as a turning point for the academic career of a student as marks obtained in secondary class indicate the future stream as professional career for students.
Higher secondary education:
Higher secondary education comes after secondary education means class 11th and 12th in which student have to select their interesting subjects as future academic area.
The last category is professional education consist various distinguished courses of different time period like it may be graduation or bachelor degree in various streams, diploma courses, Master degree, PhD (research and training) or teaching education.
Above was the pattern of education system in India that is decided by higher authority of education department.
Literacy rate in India:
Literacy rate is the amount in percentage which shows the level of education in a particular area. 64.9% literacy is found in India according to survey of 2011 in which male literacy is 75.3% and female is 53.7% which is a huge difference that need a high attention from all side.
