RTE failures in Odisha

Students at the Repur Primary School in Jagatsinghpur district of Odisha are being forced to study in a school that is unsafe.  The mid-day meals are prepared in unhealthy environment, toilets don’t function and the state of classrooms is degenerate, reports Community Correspondent Anupama Sathy. The back of the school opens to a riverfront. With no boundary wall to cordon off the school, the children are in constant danger of falling into the river.

 

CALL TO ACTION: You can help the students of the Primary School by calling the District Inspector of Education in Jagatsinghpur district and ask for the school to have the facilities listed in the Right to Education Act. Bhimsen Biswal, DIE of Jagatsinghpur can be reached at +91-8895778301

 

As a part of our campaign 'Pass Ya Fail?' which is a video audit of the Right to Education Act in India, Community Correspondent Anupama Sathy has been reporting on the conditions of government schools in Jagatsinghpur district of Odisha for a while. Her last report helped in getting teachers appointed to an Upper Primary School in the same region. But the harrowing realities of the government’s schools in Jagatsinghpur are far too many. You can make sure that each child in Jagatsinghpur and in India get access to this basic human right. Support them.
