Preventing drop-outs in schools in the tribal belt of Madhya Pradesh

Heading:…

Students from tribal villages in Jhadua, Dhar, Barwani and Khargonedistricts of Madhya Pradesh are generally reluctant to attend schools. The few that attend seldom go up to Class X, and drop out in between. Most of these students belong to the dominant Bhil tribe. Such a practice perpetuates their backwardness and poverty.

Objective …

High drop-out rates defeat the purpose of opening of schools in these areas and hinders social mainstreaming of the historically backward tribes of the state. This unfortunate trend needs to be reversed through proactive campaigns that are best conceived and spearheaded by tribal leaders with the participation of the government and NGOs.
It is, therefore, essential to identify potential social influencers from the tribal population, motivate them to involve in the effort and provide them back-end support from the government machinery and dedicated activists.
List of measures to be adopted .. The campaign should begin in the months of April –May. The individuals from among the tribal population who have made spectacular progress in the fields of sports, healthcare, education, films etc. can be roped in to come forward and be the poster boys of the planned mass-contact campaigns. Taking them on board, a road map needs to be drawn up to identify families with dropped out students, and understand the reasons of their wards discontinuing to go to schools.
After the road map is drawn, the village Sarpanchs, community leaders can be asked to get involved in the campaign. A digital reporting system can be put in place for real-time reporting of progress of the campaign, and keeping a tab on the expenses.

4. Printing inspirational literature, pamphlets and hoardings to give publicity for the Return-to-School campaign.
5. Offering government jobs to students who pass the Class X Final with high first class.
6. Providing scholarships to students who enroll in Plus 2 and qualify for higher education through CUET.

Amount required to start and run the campaign for a year..

1. For printing of publicity material … ……………………………………………………………Rs.2,00,000
2. For financial incentives to families sending their children back to school … Rs.10,00,000

4. Misc. expenses ……………………………………………………………………………………………Rs.3,00,000

Total ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………Rs. 25,00,000

Conclusion …

Leaving behind tribal children in their homes deprives them of the opportunity to unshackle themselves of poverty and backwardness. It’s immoral and runs counter to the principles of social justice as enshrined in the Constitution. This is why this ‘Retun-to-School’ is so important for implementation.
