Government schools are, as the name suggests, schools that are run by the government. They are fully or partially funded by the government and job appointments to government schools are run through the government. Almost all government schools have their state language as the medium of instruction in the school, which is in stark contrast to the private schools that have English as the medium of instruction.
However, a large number of people flock to government schools for several reasons. The first and foremost reason is that education is free from the age of 6 to the age of 14. This is part of the National scheme to provide free and compulsory education to all. The medium of instruction is in the state’s native tongue in the first 5 years of schooling after which it is switched to English. This is done to promote the native language of a particular state and allow students to be aware of the importance of regional languages in education.
These schools are also important for another reason apart from providing cheap and affordable education – they are quite easy to get marks in. compared to other syllabi like the CBSE, ICSE, etc., the comprehensibility of the syllabus is much better in these schools. Part of the reason why this is so is because of the availability of highly qualified teachers to teach the students.
