Birth of Campusquare Foundation
Through our travels across length and breadth of the country we learned that the quality of education in rural schools is dismal. There is an immediate need to have innovative and sustainable solutions including involving the community towards transforming the rural landscape and its young generation. Thought here is a rapid rise of education in rural India there’s much to be done.
Various surveys conducted among 14-18-year-olds found out that 43% could solve a class IV mathematics problem. 40% could not locate their state on a map of India. 27% of 14-year-olds, and 21% of 18-year-olds could not read a class II textbook in the regional language, and more than 40% in each age group could not read a simple sentence in English. This is important as more than two-thirds, roughly 85 million live in rural India – the future of the nation.
The good side of the story is girls have closed the gap with boys in rural areas: at age 14, 94% of girls and 95% of boys are enrolled in school; by age 18, 68% of girls and 72% of boys are still in school.
The not so good side is the fact that the quality of education in rural schools is dismal and this affects the rural youth when it comes to looking for employment. we fear, it’s a calamity waiting to happen.
