Madhya Pradesh to launch tribal kids’ school enrolmentMay 6th, 2008 - 8:29 pm ICT by admin
Bhopal, May 6 (IANS) The Madhya Pradesh government is soon to launch an action programme for enrolment of tribal children in schools. The tribal welfare department’s ‘School Chalo Abhiyan’ for 2008-09 envisages conducting a campaign to motivate tribal parents to send their children to school.
Besides, school dropouts and children not enrolled in schools would be identified. Special care would be taken to ensure that no child in the tribal areas is left out of school up to class 11.
“Directives have been issued to ensure implementation of the action plan for the campaign that aims at ensuring enrolment of cent percent children of school-going age, bringing the dropout rate to the minimum level and gradually bringing it to zero, increasing the literacy rate and to enhance awareness of tribals about education,” tribal development commissioner Jaideep Govind told IANS.
Habitations having higher number of non-enrolled and dropout children would be identified and efforts would be made to bring them to schools, he said. “A committee comprising male and female teachers, presidents of Parents Teachers Assoaciations (PTAs) and panchayat representatives would be constituted for the purpose,” he added.
To make the tribal community aware of the programme, public announcements would be made and leaflets would be distributed among them.
The department plans to organize a ‘Praveshotsav’ (enrolment festival) July 1 - the first day of new academic session.
