2022 National Education Day: Its Origins And Significance

On November 11, India commemorates National Education Day in honor of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, its first Minister of Education. The nation's contemporary educational system was made possible by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad's outstanding contributions to the field of education and institution building. He is known as the primary architect of education and served from 1947 to 1958 as both India's first education minister and vice president.


 


In addition, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad is credited with founding the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), the Sahitya Academy, the Lalit Kala Academy, the Sangeet Natak Academy, and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) in the field of education and institution building.

In 1992, Maulana Azad received the Bharat Ratna, the nation's highest civilian honor, posthumously.


 


National Education Day's Background


In September 2008, India's Ministry of Human Resource Development stated that Maulana Abul Kalam Azad's birthday, who is known as "the great son of India," would be celebrated as Education Day on a national level. The day is also seen as a chance to honor Abul Kalam's role in laying the educational groundwork for an independent India and evaluating and improving the country's current performance in the field.


India struggled to thoroughly restructure and stabilize its institutions and industries after gaining independence in 1947. The nation's leaders changed their attention to education after realizing how important it would be for creating a nation. Abul Kalam, in particular, served as the cause's standard bearer. In a 1948 speech at All India Education, he talked about how important it was for everyone to get the basic education they needed for their health and happiness without giving up their duties as citizens.


 


Because he was both a freedom fighter and an academic, Abul Kalam was the ideal candidate for the position of Education Minister in independent India. Before it became an independent country, the country had to fight and suffer through years of exploitation, which made illiteracy a big problem for its growth. Maulana Abul Kalam was the impetus behind the eradication of illiteracy because he recognized the crucial role that a powerful educational system had in the growth of the nation while serving as the chairman of the Central Advisory Board of Education. He promoted the extension of secondary education, particularly for girls, and placed a lot of focus on elementary education, reasons we appreciate National Education Day.


 


● Access to education is a fundamental human right.


 


Every person should have at least a basic level of education because that's one of the things they need to be successful in every part of their lives.


 We all support it!


● Girls Rock!


A special day for education helps people understand how important it is, especially for girls, since child labor and early marriage are still problems in some parts of India.


 


● It's incredible to learn!


We all know that it's easy to take school for granted, especially when students have a lot of homework and other projects to do. The fun activities and competitions on this day do a lot to get people in the mood to study.
