Basic facilities- Rural School Education

Both types of schools provide all basic facilities to children, although private schools were said to be far superior to government schools in terms of medical facilities, electricity.


In the matter of the facility of drinking water for the children, whether there is a private school or government, there is an equal arrangement for everyone. 95% of both private and government schools have drinking water arrangements.

45 percent of private schools have medical check-up facilities for children, while about 35 percent of government schools have this facility. 95 percent of private schools have electricity, while 85 percent of government schools have electricity.

Who is responsible for the plight of government school-

In 2004, India ranked 106th among 127 countries in the world. Although India ranks among the 10 fastest developing powers in the world, about 40% of the people are still uneducated or under-educated. Even after 75 years of independence, India still faces the challenge of educating the poor.


Education is the only means of development in a country like India. In order to make it accessible to the common man, a provision of the RTE Act (Right to Education) has been made in 2009. In this, the education of children between 6 and 14 years has been made compulsory. Its main objective was to achieve 100 percent literacy rate across India.

The "Right to Education Act 2009" came into force throughout the country on 1 April 2010, it is now a right under which state governments have to ensure that all children between 6 and 14 years of their state are provided free and compulsory education. Along with this, other necessary facilities are available and for this, no direct or indirect charges can be charged from them.


Even before the implementation of this law, there were a lot of problems in rural basic education in India and after the introduction of the law, it has added some new problems like lack of sufficient trained teachers, getting teachers to work continuous and comprehensive evaluation system. Complications about, hindrance of children in schools after enrollment and the rate of dropout among children are the biggest challenges is. But its positive effects are also seen, after the implementation of RTE, today we have reached almost 100% enrollment which is a big achievement and now almost every habitation in the villages from the city to far-flung Mazra Tola or its Schools have opened up nearby. Despite the achievements, our public rural education system has been constantly under criticism. During this period, all the reports that have come about rural basic education in India have been negative.

The news of its plight is also published in the media about rural education. In such a situation, the question arises that what is the reason for this? Is there any shortfall in RTE law? Or are we not able to implement it properly? There is also a possibility that this law is being deliberately propagated against it to prove it useless, thereby establishing it as a passive and unnecessary system in which it is impossible to reform. There is definitely no reason.

First of all, we talk of criticisms and propaganda, due to which the trust of people from government schools has steadily decreased and a large number of private schools have opened in small cities, towns and villages, most of these private schools are also located than government schools. They are bad and their main focus is not education but to make maximum profit.

The number of children in government rural schools is steadily declining, while in private schools, the reverse is happening. According to the latest report of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of the country, the total enrollment in government schools in 2011-12 was 1 crore 11 lakh, which has been reduced to 90 lakh 50 thousand in 2015 16, while on the other hand, the number of students in private schools Has steadily increased.


According to the report released by the Ministry of Human Development in 2013, around 23 lakh students leave the school every year until the 5th. Around 200 million children in the country are getting elementary education. Even after the implementation of the Education Act (RTE), there is no change in the country and the direction of government schools.

The condition of government schools in India is very thoughtful. Except for 10 or 12 states in India, the condition of education is becoming worse in the remaining states. Student numbers in government schools are increasing, but the quality of education is going into the abyss. Only those students come to these schools whose parents work as laborers and they admit their children only because they will get the scholarship.

India's education system is divided into two parts - urban and rural. The education system is comparatively better due to private schools in urban areas, but the condition of government schools in rural areas is very reasonable. Schools of rural tribal areas are extremely neglected. There are many reasons for which some may be.
