VOP (Voice of People) is a peoples organization with an individual membership of more than 50000 in 18 districts of Uttar Pradesh. VOP is facilitating people centered processes with an objective of ensuring child rights by addressing linked macro issues and advocating for pro children policies and proper implementation.
VOP along 14 with civil society organizations from various districts of UP have undertaken a study on status of Govt. schools and their functioning. The study includes aspects on infrastructural sufficiency, budget allocations and deployment, workforce sufficiency and allotment, mid day meals etc; stretching to 80 variables related to functioning of schools. Data from secondary sources including Govt. information will also be shared for assessment of a progress made in lines of ensuring education for every child.
To share the status and facts from the study, VOP is organizing a press conference for highlighting the analysis and efforts made by the state towards making education a fundamental right of every child after enforcement of the Right to Education Act.
We would like to invite you for the sharing and expect valuable inputs from all to enrich the discussion.
