Literacy battle at Rajasthan, beyond fingures

Views: 209

In Rajasthan, at Kamlu Ki Dhaani, about 60 kms from Alwar, around 116 children sit under a tree without any building and are enrolled in this school. The government claims that the student teacher ratio is about 30 students to 1 teacher but this picture goes blurred as one gets away from the cities. At Kamlu Ki Dhaani, 116 children have just one teacher.

On paper the Rajasthan government claims that things are different. The government says that in the past 10 years Rajasthan's literacy figures have doubled especially when it comes to women's literacy. The government claims it is a state with one of the best student-teacher ratios but figures can be deceiving. While more children are getting literate, many more are not completing their education. In 2005 there were more than 7 lakh children who were out of school. In 2010, more than 11 lakh children are out of school. Most parents in this village have never been to school but want their children to be part of the government's success story.
