Notes on The Radhakrishnan Commission (1948)

The Radhakrishnan Committee had lot to say about the University Education but it reviewed the secondary education in the country as well.

It was this commission which remarked that “Secondary Education continues to be the weakest link in our educational machinery and needs urgent reform.” It recommended:

(i) A twelve year secondary course instead of ten years,

(ii) That teachers’ lot be improved,

(iii) Admission to the university be after intermediate examination,

(iv) Liberal grants and better teaching facilities are available.
