In the Pre-independence era “Education” was the state subject. Since, the india became free and constitution of its own was framed the issue of “Education” was the subject in priority. By subsequent amendments in the constitution, protection to receive education was conferred not only to specified community, society, religion, class and caste rather to all citizens of India equally. By transfer of contents of Entry If of list 11 to III as entry 25 has not denuded power of the state legislation to enact law on the subject ‘Education’ but has also conferred power on parliament to enact law on the subject ‘Education’. As such, the subject Education was transferred to concurrent list from the state list.
The one billion population of India consists of six main ethics groups and fifty two major tribes, six major religion and 6400 castes and sub-castes, eighteen major languages and 1600 minor languages and dialects.
India is divided in different linguistic states. The states have been carved out on the basis of the language of the majority of persons of that region. The vital issue arose before the framer of the constitution of India to provide education to all citizens and ensure the protection of educational right to all citizens without drawing a discrimination between rich & poor, religion and languages race, caste and creed not withstanding the various Articles of constitution vis-a-vis Art 41 of constitution, “right to education amongst others, is obligated to the secured by the state by making effective provision therefore. Fundamental duties recognized by Art. 51-A include amongst others: Art 51 A (h) to develop scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform and Art 51-A (J) to strive towards excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity, so that the nation constantly rises to higher level of endeavour and achievement. None can be achieved or ensured except by means of education. It is well accepted by the thinkers, philosophers and academicians that justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity including social economic and political justice, the golden goal set-out in the preamble to the constitution arc to be achieved, the Indian polity has to be educated and educated with excellence.
Education is a national wealth which must be distributed equally & widely as far as possible in the interest of creating an egalitarian society to enable the country to rise high & face global competition.
‘Tireless striving stretching its arms towards perfection” (to borrow the expression from Rabindra nath Tagore) would not be successful unless strengthened by education. TIll;’ framer of the constitution strained over art 19 (i) G and “6”, Art. 26 and 29 (1) and (2), Art 30 and 30 (i) to harmonise their inter-relationship in the interest of social & secular status of the law all though the Art 30 (1) W,18 provided to religious and linguistic minority exclusively to promote their language, culture and heritage and establish the educational institution of their choice. Art 30 (1) read with Art 29 (2) serves the purpose of both minority and’ the non-minority community. As such the right of education and establishment educational institution referred under the Art. 30 (i) though it comprehends absolute right conferred to minority is not away of being harmonized by the Art 29 (2) and other related Articles of the constitution but not affects the autonomy of the minority in the institutional management and affairs. This is the glory of the constitution of India which leads the citizens to the fastest with the democratic and secular process.
