Further, no financial assistance was given by the administration to support the EWS parents for the various expenses besides the tuition fees. This indicates that the education to EWS children under the EWS Quota had not happened to be free of cost as envisioned by the RTE Act 2009. Moreover, the EWS parents had to bear the brunt of various expenses which they could not afford and this has created stress among them Further, the present studies reaffirms one of the significant issues that remains unattended most of the times as far as policy formulation and implementation in India is concerned.

Author: Puja Mishra

Education on the other hand is the act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life. So in this paper we would discuss about the role of education in achieving the goal of women empowerment and gender equality. Key words: Women empowerment, Education, Gender Inequality.

15 Reflections on Using Self Evaluation as a Technique to Improve Outcomes in Education

Author: Dr. Shalini Yadava & Ms. Deepti Chopra

Assessment and Evaluation are two important cornerstones of teaching and learning but these are seldom focused upon with respect to Self Evaluation . The paradox is that we often use these terminologies only in the context of learners and our lens is restricted to cover mostly just the cognitive domain .We easily or intentionally forget about the affective and the psychomotor domains of learning, thus deeming them to be of less value. In this technology enabled and technologically driven century wherein the learners have an easy access to information, isn’t it important to look beyond the cognitive aspects and rather strengthen the assessment and evaluation procedures so that we are able to know how well our education system is attuned to cater to the affective and psychomotor domains of the tender minds. We also need to focus on the teacher education institutions so as to see if these are equipping the teachers of tomorrow in a way that they are able to engage in critical thinking and reflection in order to evaluate their own self before they evaluate their students. The present paper discusses the role of self evaluation for improving the outcomes of education.
