Founder Of Punjab Public School PARTAP SINGH KARON
1. The public school idea is the most original contribution by England towards quality educa-tion. Dating back to 14th Century. English public schools have occupied a very prominent place in the field of secondary education. The first public school, though it acquired the name much later, was WINCHESTER School founded in 1382 and it was followed closely by the opening of ETON and HARROW. From their very inception these famous schools and many others modelled after them, maintained high standards of scholarship and discipline. The major objectives of British public school education areï¿½religious faith, discipline of mind, physical cultural and service to the nation.
2. Indian public schools have been modelled after the English public schools. The history of Indian public schools, though brief, is no less interesting. Unofficially it dates back to the middle of 19th Century when residential schools like St. Paul's in Darjeeling and Mayo College in Ajmer were founded. Officially, however the origin of the Indian tiublir.: dates back only to October 1939. Masters of seven existing residential schools organised the Indian Public Schools Conference on the model of the Headmasters' Conference in England. The schools which participated in this Conference and others, who were admitted to the Conference on satisfying the conditions for membership laid down by it, were alone entitled to call themselves Public Schools.
