There are an estimated 6 million Out of School Children in India (MHRD National Survey 2014), and many more drop out during the primary grades, because of the inability to follow the teaching in their age appropriate grades. The Government of India’s “Education for All Mission ” has despite its mandate been unable to cater to the needs of these children, partially because India is experiencing the largest rural to urban migration in history.
The solution is Kadam, a programme with a work book based system developed from national education competencies that enables children to drive their own learning individually in a collective setting, where the teacher is a facilitator and “obstacle remover”. The children learn on their actual level, and a simple assessment system is both a guide for the child and teacher and a measurement of progress towards a clear goal, which is the age appropriate learning level.
