Education for sustainable development

Education for sustainable development.

Sustainability means a process or state of being that can be maintained indefinitely and Development means improvement.

India may have progressed in certain pockets. But as far as the majority is concerned, India still has a very low rate of literacy and a very high rate of wastage and stagnation.

Though there are many educational schemes and programmes that have been implemented and grants that have been disbursed for wider spread of education and social upliftment, yet total progress has not been brought about because of some short-comings/lacunae hurdles in the implementation process.

1) Lack of awareness of schemes among the rural poor.
2) Shortage of dedicated and committed teachers.
3) Lack of funds.
4) Lack of infrastructural facilities.
5) Social ills and regressive mindsets.
6) Neglected and deprived sections of society.
7) Unemployment.

Efforts for sustainable development

1) Motivate the target audience to raise their standard of life.
2) Rope in the aid of NGOs, mass media, corporate bodies, philanthropists to reach a wider audience.
3) Link manpower needs with educational training.
4) Make the deprived and backward classes aware of their rights and opportunities.
5) Spread vocationalisation of education.
6) Impart education not just for dissemination of information but for achieving social objectives as stated in the Constitution.

Make suitable changes in curriculum to bridge the gap between education and employment
