“After 67 years of independence, too many of India’s citizens are shackled by the lack of a quality education that enables them to be free and independent.
What will it take to achieve quality education? First, recognise that monetary investment alone cannot solve the issue. Fifteen to 20% of every state’s budget is earmarked for education. Yet, not a single state prioritises education in its agenda and adopts a clear strategy to ensure that children get quality education. Our leaders must pledge that they will match the committed resources with a seriousness of intent to develop ambitious goals and implement them.”
