I clearly remember the first day of my school. Naïve then, but today I realize how those steps marked the journey of my life. I have been blessed with the guidance and support from my parents and teachers. Their faith and encouragement shaped the path of my success. Whenever I see school going kids, the still fresh memories of my young days’ start to cloud my mind. Without even realizing, a small smile spreads across my face. School is an institution of values and morals. It is an important factor in any child’s growth. It instills confidence, knowledge, and dreams of the future in their minds. The power of education enables a person to learn and experiment.
Primary education ensures that kids are not left vulnerable in the world and it is the first step towards literacy. Education is imperative for every nation; India, however, is in crucial need to improve the literacy rate especially in rural regions. The importance of education is yet to reach every corner of India. Even after 71 years of freedom, we are still living in the slavery of illiteracy. Even in the 21st century, people are reluctant to send their kids to school or to complete their education. Poverty acts like a headwind and our system struggles to keep pace. But we cannot let evils of illiteracy win this battle. Somewhere, somehow, there has to be an intervention. In order to do so, we need to get from the root of this problem; and the problem here is that primary education for kids is still unaffordable for people.
Here, we are particularly discussing Madhya Pradesh. The state has a large population of the tribals and this part is falling behind in terms of technology and development. The kids from these areas need economic help and encouragement with studies. If school uniform, books, notebooks, and fees are covered effectively and on time, then we might be able to increase the number of admissions. The second challenge will be to maintain and regulate their attendance. To ensure that no kid drops out of school we need to keep their interest in school activities and make studies interactive. School bodies have to introduce revolutionary methods and fun activities to maintain attendance and enthusiasm.
It may take a lot of time and hard work but this step will ensure a bright future of our future generation. Let’s give them the education and knowledge they deserve!
