Government-run schools in Tijara block are stretched for resources and manpower, leading to poor instructional quality, low learning outcomes and dropout rate of 90% by class 10th. The average student to teacher ratio is 60 to 1. Girls discontinue studies after 5th grade because there are no toilets, no drinking water facilities, and no mode of transportation. Additionally, our Partner schools are poorly supplied with resources and the majority are left without sufficient teaching staff.
