ice President Inaugurates National Education Day,2010 Function

INVC,, Delhi,, The Vice President of India Shri M. Hamid Ansari has said that about 2 crore children are born every year. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan launched in 2001-02 as the main vehicle for providing elementary education to all children in the 6-14 age group has ensured almost universal access to primary education. It addresses the educational needs of over 19 crore children. Addressing after inaugurating the “National Education Day, 2010” function organized to commemorate the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad here today, he has said that the focused interventions have ensured that the gender gap in enrolment at elementary level has been reduced significantly. Furthermore, the Gross Enrolment Ratio in respect of SCs and STs has rapidly increased narrowing the gap with the rest of the population. Shri Ansari has said that a critical element of the Eleventh Plan strategy in education was to achieve a paradigm shift from access to quality. Surveys done by NCERT on student learning and achievement have shown that outcomes have not been commensurate with the investment………. This dismal picture of elementary education’s quality and outcomes contrasts sharply with the achievement of near universal access, and the landmark legislation of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009.
