Someone has suggested this :-

First, the government of India must credibly commit to paying every literate and numerate person Rs 5,000 .
Second, ensure that every person who wants to learn basic literacy and numeracy
can do so without having to pay a single Rupee..
Third, provide testing centers around the country (especially in rural areas) where a person can be
certified to have achieved basic literacy and numeracy.
Finally, sit back and let the free market grind out the outcome which is total literacy within three years.

Child, youth and adults must be sent to schools. For the livelihood of the people, Government must provide food and needs, so that every one can learn, but who is to till the land, grow crops, and feed us.

Kerala was the first state in India to declare total literacy in one town in 1989, and subsequently, total literacy in a whole region in 1990. India's National Literacy Mission declared total literacy in the whole state of Kerala on April 18, 1991.
We could follow the steps taken by KERALA GOVT in terms of Education.
In Kerala, commitment to education pervades society. About 37 percent of the state's annual budget goes to education. The state supports 12,271 schools. There's an elementary school within two miles of every settlement.
Even when times are tough, education is the last item the Kerala government will cut. "Traditionally, we've always been funding education. The social demand is there. If we make budget cuts now, there'll be agitation from the people," says A. Ajith Kumar, director of public instruction in Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala.
To day we can see keralites migrating to all parts of the world. This has been possible because of the education. It can also be se ...more

First let the Government rationalise the fee structure of all schools. In Tamil Nadu, though the Government formed a committee to rationalise the fee structure, nothing has implemented. There is lot of discremination in getting admission in so called good schools by common man. This vexation drives uneducated villagers even to try and get admission or send their children to school.

First. In budget sufficience money should be allocated for it. Present, Govt. is spending just 8% out of its annual budget, when around 65% is allocated for defence. Second - Govt. should not interfere in private education and should free it from knotty rules and regulations. Third it should start from the rural area and illiterate and rustic village parents should first be made aware of the purpose so that they themselves can motivate their children.Fourth - education should be free from job oriented purpose at least upto the level of 8th standard. Fifth - no politician be choosen to represent the people of their respective region unless he ensures that education should be his first priority. Sixth - min.education should be made a rule for everything, even for getting a marriage certificate.
