NCERT Mid Term National Survey about childrens education in India

The impact of mother's education on children is bigger than their father's education.

This was revealed in a recent survey conducted by the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) to judge the learning achievements of Class Five students

84,322 students, 14,810 teachers from 6,828 schools across 266 districts in the country were covered in the survey which included 33 States and Union Territories.

The NCERT's Mid Term National Survey said that the learning capability of children increased by 7 to 11 percent as the level of their father's education level increased from illiterate to graduation. It increased by 9 to 13 percent as their mother's education level increased from illiterate to graduation and higher furthermore.

The survey also said that supplementary reading material like newspapers contribute significantly in increasing the learning abilities of students. It increases the learning ability by eight percent.

Language plays a key role in the childrens learning abilities. Children scored three percent better if the language used at home and school was the same.

Participation of community also had a positive effect, the survey report stated, which found that the mean achievement of indian schools increased by two percent wherever the community participated in school activities.

The survey tested the learning achievement of all essential competencies and concepts taught in major curricular areas at Class Five level in Mathematics, Environmental Studies (EVS) and Languages.

It concluded that schools that enjoyed better infrastructure and facilities like televisions, computers, higher number of teachers, community participation and monitoring of school etc, altogether contributed 10 percent more in EVS, 8.4 percent better in Mathematics and 19.6 percent better in Languages

Australia is set to recruit Indian doctors opens 5 exam centers in India

Australia is set to open five examination centres in India to recruit overseas trained doctors, desperately needed to meet the acute shortage of medical professionals in the country.

Indian doctors, who have applied for migration to Australia, will be able to sit for a multiple-choice exam that will test their medical knowledge at one of the five centres in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai, The Australian newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The first exams are scheduled to be held as early as Nov 17-19.

Until now, Indian doctors had to sit for the exam in testing centres set up for the past few years in Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai or London.

The Australian government, under the MedicarePlus reforms introduced five years ago, had pledged not to actively recruit or in other words poach doctors from developing countries such as India.

"There has been a very careful review of the situation in India, and we have been given instruction that they are no longer part of these sensitive areas," Australian Medical Council Chief Executive Ian Frank told The Australian.

"We are permitted to go back in there now. We don't think it's going to make a significant difference to the number recruited, it will just make it a bit easier for the candidates," Frank told The Australian.

India is perhaps the biggest single source of overseas trained doctors migrating to Australia. About 6,500 foreign doctors come to work in Australia each year, most of them from the Indian subcontinent, Britain and South Africa.

However, in the aftermath of the much publicised botched terrorism case of Indian doctor Muhammad Haneef, the number of overseas trained doctors coming from India had plummeted.

The Australian health system relies heavily on foreign doctors, particularly in regional and remote areas where Australians don't want to work. Forty percent of all doctors in Australia were overseas trained and a large proportion of these doctors hail from the Indian subcontinent. Almost 15 percent of overseas trained doctors in Australia are Indians.

Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program for Indians

The International Fellowships Program is the largest single program ever supported by the Ford Foundation. By investing $280 million over the next ten years, the Foundation expects to build on a half century of support for higher education. In the past Foundation programs have maintained the highest educational standards. Ford fellowship recipients have gone on to become leaders in institutions around the world and have helped build global knowledge in fields ranging across the natural and social sciences as well as the humanities and the arts. The International Fellowships Program draws on this tradition and underscores the Foundation's belief that education enables people to improve their own lives as well as to assist others in the common pursuit of more equitable and just societies.

The General Guidelines :-

The Program is especially designed to support candidates from groups that have historically lacked access to higher education. Eligible candidates who belong to marginalized and excluded groups and communities such as scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, other backward classes, religious minorities, women, physically challenged and those with other kinds of socio-economic deprivation are encouraged to apply.

Fellows will be chosen on the basis of their academic achievement as well as for their leadership potential and commitment to community service.
Fellows may enrol in a master’s level program and may pursue any academic discipline or field of study consistent with the interests and goals of the Ford Foundation (see IFP Eligible Fields of Study).
IFP will provide support for a maximum of two years of formal Master’s degree.
40 fellowships are available for 2009.
Once selected, Fellows may enrol in universities in any part of the world, including universities in India. IFP will provide university placement assistance.

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) & Indian Banker's Association (IBA) associates Education loan scheme

Government of India in consultation with Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and Indian Banker's Association (IBA) has framed a Comprehensive Educational Loan Scheme to ensure that no deserving student in the Country is deprived of higher education for want of finances. The new scheme covers all type of courses including professional courses in schools and colleges in India and abroad.

The Salient features of the scheme are as under:

The scheme envisages loans up to Rs.7.5 lakh for studies in India and up to Rs. 15 lakh for studies abroad.

For loans up to Rs. 4 lakh no collateral or margin is required and the interest rate is not to exceed the Prime Lending Rates (PLR). For loans above Rs. 4 lakh the interest rate will not exceed PLR plus 1 percent.

The loans are to be repaid over a period of 5 to 7 years with provision of grace period of one year after completion of studies

Tax Benefit
Repayment of an education loan is deductible under section 80E of the Income Tax Act. The yearly limit for deduction is Rs. 40,000 (for both the principal and the interest). Only loans taken for higher education - fulltime studies in any graduate or post-graduate, professional, and pure and applied science courses - may claim deduction. The deduction will be available for a maximum of eight years starting from the day you start repaying.

Equitable Access to quality higher education has been a concern of the University Grants Commission. To this purpose the Commission, besides encouraging colleges and universities to provide for liberal financial support to the meritorious but needy students, has also been instrumental in educational loan scheme. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued guidelines in this regard to all commercial banks. A large number of banks have already launched educational loan schemes.
