How To Uplift and Upgrade The Education System For the Benefit of Rural Students?
In India, a significant population count is rural area dwellers, where the children either have to attend the same traditional classes or often they have to skip classes due to certain reasons. But now the scenario shows a better picture, thanks to Government and NGO initiatives to bring about developments in Rural India. The progress of education is the first instance indicating the nation is even progressing. After all, to achieve an all-round literacy rate in the long run, the education system must be upgraded and uplifted for the rural students for demonstrating the results in near future.
At the very first sketch of analysis, the existing gap between the rural and urban education infrastructure and systems are to be addressed and understood. While urban education systems are backed by innovative and international learning techniques, modern infrastructure and education-accessed-by-all; the counter picture of rural education shows the stark difference. Despite the Government's initiative and movements of "Free Education", the classroom benches are empty almost three days among the working days in a week. The reason is infrastructure, lack of accessibility, well-trained teachers, innovation and international exposure.
The only positive side of a scarcity of resources is a high desire for high quality primary and secondary education as well as higher studies is created. While some might outshine, the majority still suffer a backseat, waiting for their hard work or fortune to be in luck. Here is where the NGO executives emerge to contribute to rural education in India and subsequently aid in the country's growth.
The NGO professionals take up certain initiatives for the uplifting and upgrading education system for the benefit of rural students.
I. Education should be available and accessible to everyone, and so they take up steps to remove the barriers like geographical and social constraints. So, they set up centres where the students can attend and enjoy the audiovisual classes designed with upgraded technology.
II. Thinking beyond classroom education, the teachers impart practical education for both science, computer as well as through small tours.
III. Introducing and equipping with technology, is indeed the ideal method during the COVID 19 times. Mobile and Internet are helping the students continue with education. While integrating technology in the presence of students, they are encouraged to observe and learn more about it.
IV. Creating a result-oriented learning environment, the students are encouraged to go beyond academic performance. While focusing on academic results, they even actively partake in personality development, extracurricular activities and behavioural development for achieving the overall results. A healthy and happy environment as created by the teachers and NGO staff are of great help towards the development of the rural schools.
V. Parents are even encouraged to be involved to become educated, and thus take admission alongside the children. Adult and children education, in the end, add to the literacy rate and even make the rural adults understand their capabilities and in the process, they even help their children learn. It has been found that together learning is fun and more encouraging.
Technical advancements are needed, but academic education is the first priority in the rural sector. Unless the rural people are given proper training in learning, they will be lagging in growth and development. Thanks to the programs, campaigns and initiatives taken by the NGO staff, rural education is encountering the light of betterment.
