Plea for Uniform Syllabus and Curriculum to all the children: Delhi HC issues Notice to Centre [Read Petition]

Socio-Economic Justice is essential for orderly growth and development of the poor, weak, dalits, tribals and deprived sections of the society. And to elevate them to the level of equality; State should provide Uniform Education having common syllabus and common curriculum to all children of the age of 6 to 14 years in consonance with Article 14 and 15. Article 38(2) says that State shall strive to minimize the inequalities in income and endeavour to eliminate inequalities and status, facilities and opportunities. Social Economic justice, assured by Article 39, 46 and Preamble of the Constitution would get practical content, and Equality of status assured to them would become meaningful and real; if State would provide Uniform Education, having common syllabus and curriculum to all children of the age of 6 to 14 years throughout the territory of India. Uniform Education is not only necessary for social economic equality but also essential to promote fraternity assuring dignity of individual and unity and integrity of the nation. Many countries of the world have already implemented Uniform Education. In India, not only the syllabus and curriculum but school dress is also common in all the Kendriya Vidyalaya and Navodaya Schools. Tamilanadu has already implemented Uniform Education Act. The Golden goals as set out in Preamble of the Constitution will remain elusive until uniformity in education i.e. common syllabus and common curriculum is made available to all the children aged 6-14 years
