Our education system is in a critical, shambling state. Our children need our attention, our resources. We, as a nation have to come forward to take a collective responsibility of upgrading the entire system right from the scratch. The authorities need to address the loopholes and devise proper solutions. For a start, the focus should be on increasing the number of government schools in rural India, and allocating a decent percentage of teachers there. Fortunately, a number of NGOs in India are aware of the current state of education and are eager to help. They want to do something for the underprivileged kids, the kids deserve a basic right to education and the NGOs can work on it by nurturing a social change all around.
The key players in this noble initiative are Teach for India, Make A Difference, Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation, Pratham and CRY. They are the ones who work day and night to make sure that ‘education is every child’s right’. Also, for a promising multi-pronged approach, private sector partnerships has to be included – they are strategically powerful and financially more independent, thus can be effective in making a strong financial commitment to education, when combined with the efforts of government, NGO and people at large.
