Government schools and private schools as means to achieve quality education for all
Education has always been a massive challenge for India. Initially, after independence, there was neither despread awareness on education, nor were there institutions that educated the masses. The importance of education was only realized by an elite few. The literacy rate (not an absolute measure of education, but gives us a rough idea) in 1947 was a mere 12%, which is hardly anything. The Government of India, realizing the dire need of education for the Indian masses, started rolling out programs in order to educate the citizens.
