Education system has failed to achieve objective, needs reform: SC

Education system in the country has failed to achieve its objective and it has to be reformed immediately, the SC has said.

‘It is unfortunate that on Thursday education instead of reforming the human behaviour, in our humble opinion, appear to have failed to achieve its objective. Instead we find troubled atmosphere in the society at large, which calls for immediate reformation with the efforts of one and all,’ a bench of justices B S Chauhan and F M Ibrahim Kalifulla said.

The bench said that in comparison to earlier times, the literacy level has increased but it did not result in better human value which calls for transformation in education system.

‘With great respect, it will also have to be stated that bereft of improvement in the educational field when we pose to ourselves the question as to what extent it has created any impact, it will have to be stated that we are yet to reach the preliminary level of achievement of standardised literate behaviour.

‘In fact, in the earlier years, though the literate level was not as high as it now stands, the human value had its own respected place in the society,’ the bench said. The court passed the order on a petition filed by Maharishi Mahesh Jogi Vishwavidyalaya of Madhya Pradesh.
