Ensuring co-curricular opportunities for every child

0

Despite the Government of Delhi providing an ample number of co-curricular opportunities, not all children in public schools under Directorate of Education are encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities by their teachers and parents.

Breaking down the problem statement - 

1) Parents don’t see value in co-curricular activities

2) Co-curricular activities are not seen as viable career tracks

3) Schools focus on good academic record to show outcomes and gain recognition

4) Administrative burden on teachers, because of which they are not able to encourage children to take part in co-curricular

5) The student: teacher ratio in schools is very high, increasing teacher’s workload

6) Lack of availability of skilled teachers to facilitate and coordinate co-curricular activities  (such as classes, competitions, and other such events)

7) Government mainly  recognizes academic performance of schools

8) Lack of planning and coordination from the government’s side. There is high dependence on school diary for relaying information regarding co-curricular activities, which cannot update real-time changes

Short term:

-  Increase in parents' awareness of co-curricular activities.

-  Parents will be informed about the co-curricular activities, at least one week in advance.

- Teachers will be accountable to the parents.

- There will be an increase in the number of kids participating in these activities

 

Long term:

- Removal of taboo associated with non-mainstream career paths (eg engineering and medicine) and acceptance of talent-related career choices
