No education upto 5 years
To live happily and for the survival of humanity, it is very much essential to have extremely good physical, mental and emotional, health, endurance, and stability. The brain also works due to life energies. If these three aspects are taken care of, up to the age of 5 years, it will brace every upcoming citizen to face challenges of time for its own life, and the society, and the nation. There should be no education upto 5 years. The child must play sports, do yoga and other physical exercises up to this age. It will sharpen mental abilities, as a result, the child will eventually grow as an efficient engineer, doctor, scientist, bureaucrat, or a politician, and a conscious citizen.
Upto the age of 5 years, a child must be put to actively interact with its social milieu, and develop and inculcate rationality, ethics and morality, and nationality. Lessons from religion and spirituality must be taught at home with storytelling for building a very strong character.
Elders at home must teach lessons from nature. These strong bricks once nicely placed, will definitely lay a very strong foundation for formal school education after 5 years. Every country must frame its own strategy in every sphere of life of its citizens as per the needs and the prevailing factors of time and space. The development of a society can never happen on grounds of merely imitating other societies and countries, or importing their developmental ideas.
Every country is gifted by the divine with every new birth taking place there, but the country fails to develop that child squarely. Information is not intelligence. Information can be bombarded later in the form of school and college or university education. Intelligence comes with birth with everybody which needs a further free environment to foster.

Physical resources or materialistic possessions neither make a person happy nor a society. Life should be given a fair chance to grow and thrive in full immensity and exuberance. Any school education should only start after 5 years. Upto the age of 5 years, let a child explore nature and harmonize its energies with the universe!
