5 “To Build a Country, build a Schoolhouse” Are we really free ?Fifty seven years since we achieved our Political freedom, we are far from being truly free as we are yet to achieve Economic and Social freedom. As Round Tablers we too believe Social, Economic and Political Freedom can only result through Education.Prof Amartya Sen“To Build a Country, build a Schoolhouse”Freedom Through Education“Extensive empirical studies have demonstrated the critical role of basic education in economy and social development in Europe and North America”SocialEconomicPolitical“The concentration on education was responsible, to a large extent, for the nature and speed of Japan’s economic and social progress”

8 Extract from the Infrastructure section of “ PROBE” Survey “Buildings soon deteriorate when the roof leaks – as the monsoons in our country are so generous. It disrupts schooling activity. Both teachers and parents complained bitterly about the state of the school building during the monsoons, when teaching activity was often disrupted, sometimes for weeks, or even months at a time.”Public Report onBasic Education ( Probe)is an outcome of adetailed field survey covering five states. It is acknowledged as a landmark report, giving the true picture on the status of Primary Education in the country“The Children huddle in two rooms, on sacking brought from home. The second room is very dark.”“The playground is full of muck and slime. The overflowing drains could easily drown a small child. Mosquitoes are swarming.”“There is no toilet. Neighbors complain of children using any convenient place to relieve themselves, and teachers complain of neighbors using the playground using the playground as a toilet in the morning.”
