Education policy
— A Tribune Debate

The Yashpal Committee on educational reforms and the plans announced by the new HRD Minister, Kapil Sibal, have aroused nation-wide interest among parents, educationists and policy-makers.

The intended reforms are quite sweeping, and we find that already noted educationists, Members of Parliament and political parties are expressing varied opinions. Some of the state governments, which are yet to study the reforms in detail, are also divided on the scope, range and direction of the reforms.

Before Parliament and the Union government discusses these reforms, we thought we should start a debate in The Tribune to let the academia, educationists and other commentators, who over the years have been talking about the need for such reforms, air their views through its columns.

The second article in the debate, “Class X Exams, or No? – Spare a thought for rural children” by Sudhamahi Regunathan, appears on Page 8.

More articles on the Education Policy and Reforms will follow during the next few days.
