Educational history of ancient India was glorified by the existence of Taxila, Vikramshila and Nalanda Universities when there was no university in any other country. In fact, India is said to be the very origin of the traditional educational system. Sanskrit, the traditional ancient Indian anguage, is said to be very rich in knowledge. Contribution of Vaskaracharyya and Arya Bhatta to the store of scientific knowledge has also been appreciated by whole world. In the current scenario, India is becoming the hub for global education. In fact a research says that India has now become the fourth most desirable education hub in the world. Indian Education system is the largest in the common wealth countries and second largest in the world after USA. We have seen tremendous growth immediately after independence but still a lot to achieve. Rather it would be apt to say that journey has just begun. India's education sector currently offers an estimated US$40 billion market, with a potential 16% five-year CAGR. But even after 56 years of independence, the scenario of Indian education is extremely pitiable. Independent India has set up a unique example by setting up of over 70 education commissions or committees but the situation remains extremely grim.
Youth (15-24 years of age) literacy rate in the middle-income countries is 87.8 per cent whereas in India it is 73.3 per cent (Human Development Report-2003). Out of 94 developing countries, the position of India is 76th. So far as educational development index is concerned, percentage of students enrolled in Class-1 and reached to Class-Vth standard is 77 in the developing countries but in India it is only 60. (The State of World Children-2004). On top of that that, percentage of total allocation to education in First Five Year Plan was 7.2 per cent and 2.9 per cent in Tenth Five-Year Plan. Percentage of total provision for education in the union budget ranges at about 2.2 per cent against 6 per cent on an average in the world and 11 per cent in developing countries. Nevertheless, well developed education system of India is churning out largest number of efficient and well qualified doctors, engineers and managers to this world. It has made India a favorite global educational destination, sharing platforms with USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany and France. Innumerous students from various countries like South Africa, China, Canada, etc. are coming to India in pursuit of higher studies. The reason of this popularity and fast growing education in India is its acceptance towards changes and reforms for the better future and its rich cultural history. But the reality is something different. Though the educational institutes in India are modeling their study pattern in such a way that students get to develop skills in the areas of information, communication and technology yet Indian education system is said to be devoid of vision, efficiency, impartiality and , most importantly, ethics.
India being one of the growth drivers of the world economy, its middle class is expected to expand significantly, from 300 million people today to 583 million people in 2025. By 2025, about three-quarters of India's urbanites will be part of the middle class, compared with slightly more than one-tenth today. As Indians continue to climb the economic ladder, the composition of their spending is likely to change significantly. Spending on education is expected to grow by 11% over the next 20 years that stands at 9% of the household income today. With the growth of the Indian middle class and the increase in its members' spending power, there is expected to be a major supply-demand gap in the ethical education. The world in which we live today, demands global education for our students. Our geopolitical environment and economic fates are getting increasingly inter-connected. Recent statistics show that our students are going abroad in large numbers and it is on the rise every year. This raises questions about why they choose universities abroad over Indian universities. Why is the youth so particular about getting educated from a developed country? Why should an Indian go abroad for studies when there has been a phenomenal expansion in the education system in our own country? Is our education system not good enough than we pursue education abroad? When a section of the population is looking for value-based education abroad, ambition of Middle Class and poor students to undergo Higher and Technical education is becoming a dream, even tough in the region like KBK in Odisha.
In the post globalised scenario where the entire world is integrating in terms of labour and efficiency at that time we have to be careful, so far our education pattern and quality is concern that what we have to receive from it and how to response it. Our every standard , every plan and every ideas have to be innovative and practical, that is what the world is in need today. We cannot live in excuses, rather it's the duty of every fellow responsible citizens including the govt. , N.G.Os and other sectors how to meet the aspirations and challenges of those section who are deprived with quality education. Amidst this backdrop few like minded and highly motivated responsible citizens of KBK region of Odisha formed a society called "Deomali Development Society" and came forward with a strong mission & vision in the district of Koraput , Odisha to impart value based education to the students of this region with all proficiency and modesty starting from Pre Nursery to Higher Secondary level in CBSE Curriculum to meet the long aspiration and dream of the middle class and poor students of this region. The School is committed to take its social responsibility and the burden of Social accountability without compromising its Mission and Vision.
