Some of the citizens' reactions toward the present educational scenario in the government sector are as follows.
Lack of quality in government schools is due irresponsible and unprofessional attitude of teachers and bad governance by the educational administrators despite a lot of money being invested in Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and enactment of Right to Education Act.
Money and laws can not bring about improvement in the quality in education. Implementation of reforms should have stake of the adminstration for it success. There is a need to change the attitude of all the govenmental educational functionaries right from the Education Secretary to teachers in the field to redeem the government education system.
Instead of bringing in new schemes and mismanage money, resources and time, it would be right to optimize the use of existing resources in the government sector with collective efforts.
Government schools will never improve; rather, it would be better to go for educational voucher system.
According to UNESCO, although opinions about quality in education are by no means unified, but three principles - rights, equity and relevance - tend to be broadly shared at the international level.
There is a need for more relevance, for greater equity of access and outcome, and for proper observance of individual rights. For educational quality these principles should guide and inform educational content and processes, it is being felt broadly.
