Q.

"Education must be removed from the common list and put in the central list to facilitate equal status of giving education to every Indian, since the disparity in the people of various states are from the disparity in giving education to its subjects all through these years."

I do , I even say all education b nationalizd on a central principle of SECULARISM. And NO preaching caste / theocracy in school no ever. U can preach the history of Subas Chander Bose in that time in schools na ji?

I find it sort of alarming, that MANY kids (no names sorry but pls take me word) in South Indian convent school / madrassa / or even local private school can sing a theocratic themed song excellently, but they can't even sing hum honge kamiyaab.

More than achieve an academic standard we need a system where schools sort of impart a common set of VALUE SYSTEM on children, and a moral code based on devotion and loyalty and comraderie to the people of the HIndustan Lands.

To me the comment looks absurd. First of all in a vast country like ours with its varied culture, language, race etc there can not be a uniform syllabus for every region in this country. The disparity in the people of various states has got nothing to do with the disparity in education but is due to disparity in economic development. Economic disparity can not be wished away as it is dependent of various factors like efficiency of local administration, natural resources of the place and aptitude and attitude of people living in that area etc. In fact the solution for improving the education lies not in centralizing the education system in the national or state level (as it is the case now) but in further decentralizing the education to district level. Apart from Central Board and State Board of education there should also be District Board of Education. So that each district draws up a curriculum that is suitable for its area.

No, I don't agree with the argument that the disparity of education in different states created disparity amongst the people of different states in India! On the contrary, (at least in the case of primary education) disparity amongst varios states is the main reason of disparity of education in different states. However, when it comes to higher education most of the states are at par with each other (off course you may find a subject or two interchanging within the grades). Further, it is neither administratively feasible to move education to central list nor is it politically correct to do so!
