Due to pressure to evolve better school management systems in the country, NCPCR wants the creation of a new service corps, Indian Educational Serviceson the same pattern as IAS, IPS,IRS and other civil services.

NCPCR has also recommended identical uniforms in private and government schools and regulated fee structure to prevent unfair hike by private schools.

Recommendations by the commission include provisions of providing free and compulsory education to children attending secondary school (15-18 years of age) and provision for mid-day meals at all government-run schools.

Suggestions also included the provision of translating and preparing books in multiple languages and to publish multilingual dictionaries and glossaries, especially to cater to the needs of tribal children.It also suggested localizing vocational educational courses by institutions like NCERT that can be adopted at the district level, based on local needs and resources.
