The twenty first century, would be marked with the infusion of a renewed interest and vigour in the field of law and order. Particularly in the Indian context, the growth and development of the society has reflected in the growth and development with regards to the social order and awareness about the structure development. A century of turmoil, inconsistent bouts of challenges being laid out for the functioning of democracies across the world has brought us back to the fundamental question of “how deeply is the social order rooted in the structure?”.
A society is a heterogeneous composition of individuals and communities, that thrive together to achieve social harmony, development and peace. Education is one of them and it is essentially in the context of achieving the aims of a society that proper education holds most value. Without the presence of an adequate schooling system that pages the way for a social order, development, knowledge, it is humanly impossible to think of a disciplined world.
In the field of education system, Indian government has followed two parallel schooling systems namely; private schools and public schools, the former being more expensive than the later, considering the fee, infrastructure and other modern amenities which the public schools lacked.
Through this paper, the author aims to achieve and establish the difference between the government and private education system, ensuring a just and fair social order, drawing sharp contrasts among some of the most vibrant democracies across the world and providing various solutions and methods which the government may adapt to. Education is no doubt a fundamental right of every citizen and proving quality education should be the government’s prime focus.Public-private partnership in school system was something the government was encouraging in the name of ‘making quality school education available to all’. Education is a constitutional right in India, but the provisions fall well below the  requisite standard. The atrocious condition of government schools, forced a lot of working-class people to send their children to private schools with exorbitant fee structures.

Some of the important keywords around which the paper revolves are:
1. Proper administration by the government.
2. Issues and challenges faced by these school systems and how to overcome them.
3. Pros and cons of these education systems.
4. Focusing on international laws relating to Right to Education and various steps taken by governments around the world.
5.Adoption of efficient money transfer system for the poor.

Lastly, by drawing focus on government aiding towards these private institutes for better and efficient improvement in educational standards. Digital education and proper access to it in all sectors whether urban or rural will improve the quality of education from the grass root. Also, proper training of teachers and keeping a watch on absenteeism will further enhance the growth of country’s schooling system whether private, government, aided or semi.
