Statement:Should ‘education’ be brought under the control of the Central Government like defense?
I. No, education is a state subject and it should remain with the state.
II. Yes, this is the only way to establish uniformly in growth of education across the states.
If only argument I is strong
Clearly, the benefits of education can reach out better to the masses if looked after by governing bodies at the state level, rather than if looked after by a single body at the center. Besides, uniformity in education can be achieved by constant monitoring, and prescribing a common curriculum and assessment policy. So, only argument I holds strong, while II does not.
