Education in India is an economic option with the department of Education deciding on free education for children till class fifth. If nothing else, it’s the free meals that are a major hit with the children drawing even dropouts to come back to schools. The school education system in India is hierarchical and regulated by academic boards such as the CBSE, the ICSE, the State boards and is categorized into levels such as the preprimary before class first, primary from class 1 to 5, middle (or intermediate) from classes 6 to 8, secondary (or high school) from classes 9 and 10, and senior secondary which is the 10+2.
A number of schools are run by private Trusts, or sponsored by an International Board or is run by the Christian mission. There are a few religious based schools in India like the Madarasas which are attached to mosques imparting Islamic education. As per a recent survey, only a little more than 50 percent of children from classes 6 to 9 actually attend school, despite a higher percentage on the rolls. School attendance patterns are more gender oriented especially in the rural areas but the best part is that States like Kerala have managed to achieve a 100% literacy rate.
The teachers recruited for Government schools are paid low but under a lot of pressure to fulfill other duties like participating for the census or being on duty for the elections. No doubt these teachers get paid extra and there are a lot of perks like pension, the International school teachers earn far better than their Government school counterparts and earn salaries in the 30 to 50k bracket. The social exposure in Christian mission schools and private schools is more than the Government schools but then the fees are accordingly higher. Today many Indian schools are turning into smart schools with completely digitized classrooms and audio video facilities making learning a dynamic and interactive activity.
