With an aim to provide education to every child in the state, the Yogi Adityanath government is mulling re-enrolling the school dropout students, particularly in the ages of 6 to 14 years in Uttar Pradesh .
The move of the government comes besides various awareness campaigns for the parents to motivate them to educate their children.
In order to understand the operation of the system of the Netherlands, a team of 12 people including the Basic Education Minister will visit the Netherlands in March.
According to a survey by the state's Basic Education Department , 4.81 lakh children were found out of school in 2020-21, more than 4 lakh in 2021-22 and 3.30 lakh in 2022-23.
Director General of School Education , Uttar Pradesh, Vijay Kiran Anand informed that on the lines of the Netherlands' Early Warning System, special efforts will be made to connect the absent children ie out-of-school children with the mainstream of education.
The Director General further said that if a child remains absent from school for 40 days, his tracking will be started immediately.
Under the Early Warning System, if a child remains absent from school continuously for 40 days, he is tracked and his parents are contacted to find out the reason for the child not attending school.
After this, a team is formed to bring back most of the absent children to school. It is believed that this system of the Netherlands will help bring children back to school in UP.
