Project Report | Oct 15, 2012
Progress Report till September 2012

By Surjya Narayan | Fund Raising Officer

In India, as per the Right to Education Act 2009 all children in the age group of 6 to 14 years need to be in the schools. But the history witnesses that, the Government education programs are hardly successful for slum populations. RSSO expects universal enrolment and retention of slum children through community empowerment, children counseling, school teacher’s sensitization program and imparting remedial education to maintain academic proficiency of the children at par with their counterpart.

Ruchika Social Service Organisation involves setting up Remedial Education centres within the communities with a typical ratio of one school for every 200-300 families.  Each school was running in a one-room school shed, has 20-25 children spanning grade levels 1-5 and about 20 children of grade 6 to 8 with an age distribution from  6-14 years. The teachers have been following curriculum at-par to formal Government schools. A total number of 3500 (100 Primary and 62 Elementary) slum children are studying in our education centres.

The base line evaluation was conducted by Indus Learning Solutions, New Delhi in view of Blooms Taxonomy in August 2012. A sample of 493 children from the Ruchika intervention area and 332 children from Ruchika’s non intervention area appeared the test. The test result found that the children provided with remedial support is excellent comparing the non intervention area. The children with support from Ruchika gets average of 60% where the children from non intervention area gets average of 40%, attached please find the test result.

In addition competency tests have been completed in all remedial centres to assess the proficiency of the children. The impact of it shows widespread in most of the slums.

We are experimenting a new strategy of education viz. reward / special incentive to the best teachers who build most significant changes in the academic achievements of the children. The teachers of the remedial education centres where it is found most of the children securing more than 80% mark in the Base Line test awarded with the special Incentive. It is found that it promotes the teaching spirit of the teachers and best academic career of the children. Also this enables the children to learn at faster rate with most supportive hand of the teachers. This is on experiment basis and we expect its impact in the next tests. Based on next test result we will replicate the strategy in all fields.
