Currently less than half of India’s children between the age 6 and 14 go to school. An UNICEF report states that more than 80 million children drop out before completing 8 years of age and over 8 million children are out of school.
“Our Vision is to bring quality education to the 10 million children in the next 10 years through the Super Class Programme.”
The Right to Education (RTE) act states that education is a fundamental right of every child who is between 6 and 14 years old but lack of access to good quality schools & little interest in studies are some primary reasons given by three in every four drop – outs as the reason they leave. Dropout rates increases alarmingly in class III to V, its 50% for boys, 58% for girls. A little over one – third of all children who enroll in grade one reach grade eight.
