It is true that if the rural population of India is not literate then calling India a shinning country will be nothing but a farce. After the independence, Indian government has always stressed on the development of the country. And India has tried to develop herself by educating herself. But the rural education is still improving and not at all improved till now. There are certain reasons behind this, the rural people and also the schools have to face some obstruction, and these obstructions are some of the major obstruction in path of rural education.
The major problems of imparting education in rural India are the following
"· Firstly, the numbers of schools in Indian villages are very less. For three or four villages there are only one school. And the children have to walk a long distance to attend the school. So most of the time going to school and studying is nothing but wastage of time to them. They feel that they can use the time and help their family in farming or in household work and help them to earn some money or be nothing else than a support to their family. The family also think in the same way.
"· Moreover people do not love to teach in these rural schools and so the numbers of teachers in these schools are very less. For three or four subjects these schools have only one teacher and this is a major problem. This why most of the students in these schools are deprived of quality education.
"· In many of rural school in India the basic infrastructural facility like a well maintained sanitary system is not present in these rural schools. Thus pupils do not get the basic infrastructure from these schools and this is one of the most important and major obstruction educations in rural schools.
Ray of light is present everywhere.
There are so many major obstruction and problem present in imparting education in Indian villages. But still you cannot deny the fact that India education is considered as the one of the most important parameter in the rise in the economic condition of the country. This had become possible because the government and the educational system of this country had taken some major steps so that the children living in the villages can receive at least the basic primary education.
"· The numbers of primary schools in the country have increased in this country. But this would not have been possible if the children in this country have not taken an initiative to study. Today the children of age group of 6-14 years, who go to primary and secondary school is almost 96.5%. And the percentage of student of age group from 15-16 years who go to school is 96.83%. This report can be called reliable report because this report had been presented by the Annual Status of Education Report, a governmental organization. These reports are reliable and these reports are also at the same time gives a hope and lead India to a shinning India.
