Sishu Siksha Karmasuchi

.

There are several areas where all children do not have access to primary school due to physical distance or geographical barrier. Again, in many Govt. aided conventional primary schools the accommodation and the teacher strength are inadequate to cater to the needs of the students in such huge members as they have been approaching them. To serve those learners who do not have access to any school for whatever reasons it may be a unique system of education named Sishu Siksha Karmasuchi is being implemented in the district as an alternative method of  education for the children in 5-9 ages group. Under the auspices of Panchayats & Rural Development Department of Government of West Bengal. This system is almost totally dependent on people's initiative. So far more than 500 of Sishu Siksha Kendras have been opened in different areas of the district. For each such Kendra there is a Managing Committee consisting of 9 members out of which as many as 7 members are elected by the guardians of the learners. Out of these 7 members at least 3 members must be women. There after 2 members of the committee are

  • The concerned members of the Local Gram Panchayat
  • One educationist of the locality

The committee plays a major role in the proper functioning of the Sishu Siksha Karmasuchi in the following respects

  • Arranging suitable building / room for the SSK
  • Persuading the local guardians about the objective of the SSK and making them take interest in it
  • Preparing the list of the learners by house-to-house survey
  • Appointing Sikshya Sahayak / Sahayikas on contract basis
  • Fixing the data and hours for running the SSK
  • Assessing the standard of education being imparted at the Kendra
  • Ensuring the attendance of the Sahayika / Sahayak
  • Managing the fund received from the Government and arranging for additional fund through community initiative
