Educational Opportunity Access and Equity Among Slum Children

Manas Upadhyay (Author)

This book is an attempt to unravel the educational disparities being faced by the slum children. The varied dimensions of educational opportunities, access and equity among slum children have been dealt with in this book. Although the slum area children are not different from other disadvantaged groups in having problems, their problems assume special seriousness when viewed in the context of severe environment deprivation, deterioration and social pathologies that stem from the striking visible contrasts between affluence and poverty. It would not be too much to say that slum residence, by its very nature, accentuates disadvantage which prevents children from taking full advantage of any educational opportunity offered to them. A real understanding of the educational malaise in slum areas and a deep insight into its genesis, is virtually non-existent. By focussing on the entire spectrum of educational opportunities in the slums with comparable equal access, equal inputs and equal outcomes, this book would furnish very useful knowledge for making policy decisions and formulating special programmes for the universalisation and equalisation of educational opportunities at the primary stage. This book tries to dwell deep into the various issues which are by far left unaddressed.
