SARVA SHIKSHA ABHIYAN - A PROGRAMME FOR UNIVERSAL ELEMENTARY EDUCATION

<>

AIMS OF SSA

    

           The SSA launched in Manipur aims at providing useful and relevant Elementary Education for all children in the age-group 6-14 years under the provisions of Article No. 45 of the Indian Constitution and 86th Constitutional Amendment Act making Elementary Education a fundamental right and fundamental duty. Another aim of SSA is to bridge social, regional and gender gaps with the active participation of the community in the management of schools with the purpose of providing useful and relevant education. Useful and relevant education means a quest for an education system that is not alienating and that draws on community solidarity. It aims at allowing children to learn about their natural environment and master them in a manner that allows the fullest harnessing of their human potential both spiritually and materially. This quest must also be a process of value based learning that allows children to work for each otherís well being rather than to permit mere selfish pursuits.

            Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan in Manipur has realized the importance of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) meant for children in the age-group 0-6 years and look at 0-14 years of age as a continuum. All efforts to support pre-school learning in ICDS centres or special pre-school centres in non ICDS areas have been made to supplement and complement the efforts being made by the Department of Women and Child Development, Govt. of Manipur to achieve the objectives of SSA.
