Plea In Supreme Court Seeking a Unified School System based on Standard Including Common Syllabus And Similar Curriculum Up to Secondary Level

The Supreme Court has submitted a petition seeking to ascertain the feasibility of setting up a National Education Council or National Education Commission to implement a uniform education system with a common syllabus and curriculum for all children aged 6-14 years in the spirit of Article 21A read in Articles 14, 15, 16, 38(2), 39(f), 46 and 51A of the Indian Constitution.

The petition was lodged by Advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay who submitted that, “presently each education board has its own syllabus and curriculum and entrance examinations are based on CBSE, so prevailing system doesn’t provide equal opportunity to all students in spirit of Article 14, 15, 16, 38(2), 39(f), 46 and 51A.”

Advocate Upadhyay further pointed out that the HRD Ministry has recently introduced twelve channels of education, i.e. one channel of education for each class, to teach classes to CBSE Board primary, secondary and senior high school students where this move will help a maximum of 20 per cent of students. It would therefore violate the right of 80 per cent of children to be taught. Both examinations at national level are based on the CBSE board's syllabus and curriculum and there is a considerable disparity between the syllabus and curriculum of other boards. Thus education through twelve channels will lead to more opportunities for inequality.

Furthermore, the petitioner urged the Court to ascertain the feasibility of introducing a standard textbook with chapters on fundamental rights , duties, guidelines and the golden objectives set out in the Preamble, and to make its study compulsory for all children aged 6-14 throughout India. The petitioner also prayed before the Court to assess the legality of setting up "One Country One Education Board" by combining Indian Secondary Education Board Certification into or vice versa Central Secondary Education Board.
