 M. Venkaiah Naidu, the Vice President of India in his recent address on Monday, asserted that to create an "inclusive new India," we as a part of the society require to focus on the education of our children.

At the Nehru and Tagore Literacy Awards, organized by the Indian Adult Education Association, the Vice President asserted, "We need to rethink education. We need to review what is taught and how it is taught. The schools and colleges must get transformed into active, vibrant places of learning where students experience the joy of learning.”  

Referring to the reports of the human development index, Naidu affirmed, "I am saddened by reports that reflect the predominance of rote memorization, lack of learning materials and inadequate attention to different dimensions of learning. There is much more to be done in terms of improving the quality of education."
In his speech, Naidu stated that literacy provides freedom to have a better participation in the society.

 

He affirmed, "India has made rapid progress over the last seven decades. When India got independence, the literacy rate of the country was 14 percent with female literacy as low as 8 percent. With the expansion of the education system, the country has tried to ensure universal primary education and literacy. Thanks to these efforts, as per 2011 census, the literacy rate of the country was 73 percent, with male literacy at 80.9 percent and female literacy at 64.6 percent.”

Venkaiah Naidu also discussed their policy of “Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas”.
