In today’s scenario, half of the Indian population still lives in rural areas. Education is the right of every citizen of not only urban areas but of remote areas too. Therefore, education in rural India and the development of the quality of life in these areas are of utmost importance.
However, the major concern in rural areas is the access and quality of education. As there are very few teachers who are committed, there is a lack of books and learning material in the schools of villages.
People now a day’s understand the importance of education as this is the only way to get rid of poverty and the source of better living.
What are the major challenges a school in a village faces
1. Good teachers
Firstly, it is really difficult to find a good quality teacher in an affordable budget.
2. Orthodox thinking
Some people are still orthodox while sending their children for studies. They think that their children can spend their time working instead of going to school.
3. Lack of discipline in children
Not to mention, it’s really difficult to handle children at school and teach them the importance of discipline.
4. Mid-day meal budget
They have to keep a budget for providing a one-time meal to encourage children to come to school and give them nutrition.
5. Campaigns held
Additionally, various campaigns are held to educate parents as well, so they not only send their sons to school but also their daughters.
6. Government schools
Government schools are affordable but not as good as a private school which is comparatively expensive.
7. Lack of schools
Every village does not have a school. Often children travel to another village to study. Due to a lack of proper transportation and proper connectivity to other villages, children might end up staying at their homes.
8. Bad infrastructure
Poor infrastructure in rural schools is another factor that drives away the students.
Proper basic facilities like quality teachers, good infrastructure, clean toilets, ventilated classrooms, drinking water, regular motivational programs for students as well as teachers, proper attention paid to the students, safe and healthy environment, noon meal to curb malnutrition, proper textbooks and uniforms, regular health and educational programs for the students and their families and scholarship programs for further studies will bring a great change in the development of education in rural India.
