India is an important developing country with a huge population of 1.21 billion, only second to China. India with 1.4 million children out of school ranks among the top five nations with kids 6 to 11 out of school. .35 million children age 6 to 14 do not attend school in India. If children aged 6 to 14 are taken into consideration, nearly 20% of the total children are out of school. 30% of the poorest children are out of schools. 4% of richest children are also out of schools. 19% girls are out of schools. This percentage for boys is 14%. In India, only those parents send their children to government run public schools who cannot afford to send their children in private schools. Almost all public schools provide poor quality education. There is marked disparity in school education in India.

There are also indications that progress towards universal primary education is slowing and that the goal of global universalization of primary education will not be met by 2015 if current trends continue. It is almost impossible to achieve the global target until a huge country like India ensures right to elementary education to all children without exception. Common School System is the most potential concept which can ensure education of comparable quality to all children in India.

Education that is founded on the principles of equality and social justice as enshrined in the Constitution and provides education of a comparable quality to all children in an equitable manner irrespective of their caste, creed, language, gender, economic or ethnic background, location or disability (physical or mental), and where in all categories of schools – i.e. government, local body or private, both aided and unaided, or otherwise will be obliged to (a) fulfill certain minimum infrastructural (including those relating to teachers and other staff), financial, curricular, pedagogic, linguistic and socio-cultural norms and (b) ensure free education to the children in a specified neighborhood from an age group and or up to a stage, as may be prescribed, while having adequate flexibility and academic freedom to explore, innovate and be creative and appropriately reflecting the geo-cultural and linguistic diversity of the country, within the broad policy guidelines and the National Curriculum Framework for School Education as approved by the Central Advisory Board of Education . This precisely explains the basic principles of common education system of the country.

The present study has been done in Indian context. The study provides useful understanding in equitable quality schooling for all children of a society. It identifies divergence and disparity into existing system of schooling. It also analyses the Bihar Common School System Commission Report which is a kind of first initiative in India. It also tries to reveal opinion of the community, teachers, and students towards common school system. A strong argument has been developed in order to implement common school system in order to dispel disparity and ensure quality school education of comparable quality.
