Right to quality education
Socially excluded, marginalized and vulnerable people have historically been deprived of their basic right to education. Moreover, the disadvantaged and marginal groups, viz., the girls, Dalits, Janajati and other minority children are in an even worse situation. Such a poor state of education is primarily attributed to inadequate budget allocation, poor educational infrastructure, ineffective monitoring, lack of accountability on the part of key actors and geographical remoteness. In addition, lack of proper mechanisms to promote quality education has further aggravated the situation.
Due to the lack of or inadequate understanding of the value of quality education by SMC and parents, lack of appropriate management capacity, specific monitoring and follow-up mechanism, several government policies and programs for promoting quality education have not been realized in the practice. Therefore, despite the fact that the overall access to education has become better in the region, but the hard-core groups: ultra poor, vulnerable, and extremely marginalized groups, are still out of school, thereby deprived of quality education

 

– Strengthen partnerships and coordination with local government agencies, civil society organizations and other development agencies to specifically address the underlying problems in promoting quality education.
– Enhance the capacities of key actors (schools teachers, SMC, PTA, RC) through training, interaction, and exchange visits.
– Improve monitoring, supervision and other support systems at district and local levels in coordination with DEOs and civil societies.
– Promote good practices within schools to ensure transparency and accountability necessary to effectively proceed
