Get them back to school

India ranks 92 among 145 countries when it comes to education according to the Global Report of 2015. A large share of out-of-school children in the age group of six-18 years is from India. Merely 12 per cent schools fulfill India’s Right to Education (RTE) norms. Lack of safe access to school and insensitive school environment are among the key factors contributing to children dropping out especially for children from Dalit, Adivasi and Muslim communities. Children in residential schools and observation homes face multiple forms of violence.
