Abstract

It is high time that all the policy makers and implementers at all stages, levels and sectors of education must really feel guilty of their individual and collective failures in promoting desired access, infrastructure, teachers and outcome at each level. They all must introspect seriously and empathise fully with the hitherto deprived families and children, and commit themselves to the cause of promoting democratic and equitable education to all of them. They need to commit for such a cause in the same spirit as they wish the things to be done or happen for themselves or their children and homes. Only then, they can and will take prompt and perfect action to ensure universal access, universal enrolment, universal retention, achievement and equity at all levels of education. It is in such a spirit the model proposed here requires a thorough consideration at appropriate levels.
