The major issue in the rural education system
Lack of adequate number of schools
Lack of education is a fundamental problem in India, and the state of the Indian government schools is a clear illustration of this. Education is a constitutional right in India, but its services fall well below an ample standard. The problem in transportation combined with schools located at a great distance in rural areas compel parents not to send their kids to the schools, thus keeping them devoid of education.
Quality of education depends on infrastructures such as classrooms, water and sanitation facilities, availability of electricity, provision for digital learning, sports equipment and facilities, availability of chairs and desks, and softer elements such as the presence of school staff, professional competencies of teachers, access to books and learning materials, among others.
So that huge lack of teacher especially huge trained one which disturbs student-teacher ratio extensively.
Cheap educational institutions
Residents of rural India usually come with little income which is consumed in their basic needs. The lack of government schools also discourages parents to spend on their kid’s education.
Way of teaching
The way of teaching also differs in urban schools, while the teaching methodology in rural schools is primitive. The urban schools are loving on adopting modern ways of teaching like concept learning and focus on the development of each student.
Upgrade rural education system
Boost free education
The problem can be solved if free education at a very minimal fee is being offered.
Establish more schools
The solution can be found only if the government takes an initiative to establish affordable schools that are pocket-friendly to the middle as well as a lower economic group of society.
Work on school infrastructure
If we are to lay the foundation of strong educational life, it needs to start right from the beginning and this only can be done if the school infrastructure is done well.
Bring ingenious teaching methods
We all know the state of teaching technique is primitive and traditional in rural India. so these schools must adopt concept learning to develop their students entirely.
Promote computer literacy
Our country is progressing technologically; however, sadly, the imprint of this advancement has yet not reached the rural areas. This has caused a digital gap in rural-urban India.
Even though the government is working to boost the state of education in the country, there is still a lot to be improved. There is a growing awareness among people about education; however, the lack of infrastructure is being a major obstacle that needs an active intervention of the government.
