Summary

9. The 'Zakir Husain report defines the aim of the Wardha Scheme not as "the production of craftsmen able to practise some craft mechanically - but rather the exploitation for educative purposes of the resources implicit in craft work" and sounds a warning of the obvious danger of stressing the economic aspect to the sacrifice of the cultural and educational objectives. [...] Zakir Husain's explanation removed from the minds of some members of the Committee the apprehension aroused by the literature which preceded the formulation of the Wardha Scheme and by some of the phraseology of the Wardha Scheme Report itself and so prepared the ground for a discussion of details. [...] Amongst the points discussed were the length of time allotted to the basic craft the political tone of parts of the syllabus in Social Studies the omission of algebra and major games the ambitious nature of some of the subjects of study the lack of suitable text-books and other matters. [...] The question of the inclusion of religious instruction in the curriculum is discussed in the report of the Women's Education Committee of the Central Advisory Board of Education on the curriculum of Girls Primary Schools (1937). [...] The Zakir Husain report states that "the purpose of the examination can be served by an administrative check of the work of the schools in a 'prescribed area by a sample measurement of the attainment of selected groups of students conducted by the Inspectors of the Education Board".
