dated December 22, 1955: All-India school exam

The problem of all-India standards will remain and become a headache unless we have an all-India examination as the coping stone of our secondary education, observed Sardar K.M. Panikkar, delivering the Foundation Day address of the Central Institute of Education in New Delhi. "We must realise that our efficiency as a nation and our progress depend on the quality of the secondary school system. I am happy the Central Government has brought into existence a Council of Secondary Education, appointed a staff of field officers and generally laid down policies which are sound enough. But the problem of all-India standards will still remain unless we have an all-India examination. I am not suggesting that the local school leaving certificate examination should be replaced by an all-India examination. They should continue, but over and above these, an all-India examination on the lines of the Cambridge Higher Certificate examination should be organised, enforcing a uniform standard all over India.''
