COMMUNITY EDUCATION INITIATIVES
India is a pluralistic and a complex society in terms of its regional, religious, linguistic, castes and economic divides. There are the urban-rural as well as gender differences. Education too has different offerings. There has been progress in terms of literacy rate, but yet there remains a challenge when it comes to equity in education. Quality education also remains a challenge especially when it comes to educating a large population. Although education strives to meet the needs of all but formal systems cannot do it all. Therefore initiatives have to be taken up by conscientious educators and reach out to the community to ‘educate’ the young for becoming good human beings.
