'Make it compulsory for political leaders, bureaucrats to send their kids to govt schools'
At the open house session of the 'Jaipur Dialogues' in the city, the expert on security matters Sushant Sarin said that the school education can improve if it is was made compulsory for bureaucrats and political leaders to send their children to government schools.

Sushant said that India of his dreams is one in which there is prosperity, development, security and employment for the youth. He was of the view that in India both standards of education and health services in the government sector have done down.

"One may get surprised to know that around 90 percent of the government teachers send their children to private schools and we must begin from them. Therefore, it has to be made compulsory for all government servants and people's representatives to send their children to government schools and thus they would have a stake in improving the quality of education," remarked the Jaipur-based educator Prabha Kishore while agreeing with the suggestion of Sarin.

In many western welfare states, community-based neighbourhood system of school education is being implemented in which in school's catchment area, parents irrespective of their position, send their kids to the neighbourhood schools as well manage it.

Last year, the Allahabad High Court had asked the UP government to bind the government servants to send their children to government school. An independent study needs to be done how far the honourable court's directive has been complied with.
