He excelled in understanding the Indian people, the nation and its heritage. As such, he presented a scheme of education known as ‘Basic Education’ which was skill-centred, value based and mass-oriented.

This scheme envisages a close integration between the schools and the community so as to make child more social minded and co-operative. If we consider the present education system, or at utmost the need of the hour is to reorient education to channelize the man-power in the right direction. The craft- centred can be adopted as the skill-development which will be an insurance against unemployment. Also, this will act as a strong instrument for development of a better and stronger citizenship by promoting qualities like co-operation, tolerance, respect etc.

Further, we find Gandhiji’s scheme of basic education emphasized character building as strong character is the foundation of good citizen. Therefore, in contemporary education, issues of character building through value based education and integrating that with science and technology will channelize the human-values and bring the desired social change. Adopting Gandhiji’s scheme of education could revive India’s economic, social and cultural life. However, the recent education policy has taken cognizance from the above mentioned scheme of education and is looking forward to be implemented in schools.
