In a world of injustice, Education often acts as a means for the less privileged to self-actualize. Every child must have at least a basic level of Education. However, this is far from reality. Poverty, discrimination, and many barriers prevent the rural set up from having a quality education. The Right to Education Act (RTE)in India, was enacted in 2009. This Act mandates free and compulsory Education for Indian children between ages 6 and 14. Many Indians who are entitled to free Education are currently not enrolled in School. Many of these children are located in rural communities throughout the country.
The peak evidence that early childhood education has extreme and life-long effects for students has been building for years. Instructors have made efforts to widen access to high-quality education probabilities. But the access is not evenly distributed—the rural set up is often left out.
This term “Child Care Deserts” refers to areas that have fewer available childcare centres with more children in need of them. There is no confirmation that those available spots also offer high-quality preschool instruction.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution in providing Early Learning Opportunities for the rural community.
What are the Challenges?
A lack of available preschool options is not the only challenge faced by Rural Parents wanting to educate their children. Many parents are unemployed, or they may be working but no longer able to earn a living salary. Some preschool options can cost a lot, which puts the families firmly out of reach.
Transportation is another significant hurdle. Rural areas are topographically isolated. With this economic picture, many families cannot afford to take their children to preschool, either because they cannot pay for it or because they do not have flexible working hours. A lack of transportation in these rural areas often takes preschool entirely off the table.
The challenges themselves suggest the answers. If high-quality early Education is expensive for rural families, educating their children at no cost to them is the right solution. If transportation troubles prevent them from taking their children to free high-quality options, let us help bring those options to them.
To Upgrade the Rural Education System, we need to-
-Raise free Education
-Work on school framework. …
-Bring novel teaching methods.
-Encourage computer literacy
