give a smile to slum children

The disadvantages are disproportionate for under-privileged learners like slum children who tend to have fewer educational opportunities beyond school and they are first generation learners. When schools close, parents who are almost illiterate are often asked to facilitate the learning of children at home.  Hence it is expected that the prolonged lockdown will result serious implications over the slum children as enlisted below.

  1. Student drop-out rates tend to increase as an effect of school closures due to the challenge of ensuring all students return to school. Disadvantaged, children of single parents are more likely not to return to school after the closures are ended, and the effect will often be a life-long disadvantage from lost opportunities.
  2. The academic proficiency of slum children will drop down dramatically   as nobody is there in their family to academically support them during lockdown. Hence when schools open cannot adjust with their peers (non-slum children) having higher proficiency, thus may tends to drop out from the school.
  3. The parents will be compelled to focus on restoring their livelihood after lockdown and will further neglect the children’s education.
  4. The economic crisis of families due to a strong bang on livelihood due to prolonged lockdown may compel the slum parents to push their children into labour sector and permanently close their doors to school.

 

Hence it is imperative to immediately start an effective technology based solutions in the field of education to bring the slum children back to the proficiency level at par with their peers in the school along with a strong community mobilization initiative to prevent post lockdown dropout and to close the doorway for children to enter into labour force.
