Bridging The Rural-urban Education Gap With Innovation

A country’s growth is directly proportional to its education system. How the young, dynamic force is coming out to run a country with zeal and empowerment? Education plays a crucial role in turning an individual’s personality and there is no second opinion about it. 

For a country like India, more than 60% of the growing population lives in the villages. As per reports, by 2021 India will function as a country with the youngest workforce. And it can only happen by uplifting the poor rural education scenario. Call it the limited resources, the gender gap or the laid back faulty education system prevailing for ages. We cannot deny the fact that even today a little or no heed is offered to the majority of students residing in rural parts of the country. 


Drawbacks enveloping the Rural Education System 

1. Lack of schools 


Limited or no schools in the vicinity is the major cause of student bereft with the right to education. The struggles with local transportation make it an even big deal for students to reach schools. The two issues cripple the majority of the rural families that ultimately do not send their children to schools.


2. Financial barriers 


The lower middle class or rural families sustaining in the villages always have limited resources, that too gets consumed in the basic survival. Often they look for cost-effective educational institutions to enroll their child. But the unmasking of the Indian education system with no or lack of government schools make education out of their realm. 


3. Poor infrastructure in schools


Enough has been said and done but still, there is a poor infrastructure in the government schools that discourages students from pursuing education. Lack of qualified teachers showing little interest in brightening the child’s future is another educational fault. As a result, rural students are deprived of educational merits in today’s turn of technology and innovation. 


This needs to change and only a workable education system can make an immediate effect. 


How Schooglink is revolutionizing it with Innovation?


As we said, the shortcomings can only be eradicated with a strong, technological aspect aiming at reshaping the strategy of delivering education. Schooglink has been trying its best since its inception in 2016 to bridge the rural-urban divide.


1.Technological Reach to basic education


The country that is progressing with immense modernization cannot leave behind the roots, that is rural India. Chasing this path, Schooglink has tried amalgamating innovative measures to the school curriculum and education system with online-offline smart classroom models. It functions in digitizing the basic, mundane classroom learning and opened the doors of exponential technological growth. 


2. Diminishing language barrier


With the advent of technology-oriented learning come several challenges, on top is the language barrier for the students. With this in mind, Schooglink is trying to bridge the learning gap offering high-end, quality education in their regional languages. It empowers students and boosts their confidence too making them comfortable in their journey.


3. Making Education Fun and Simplified 


The Schooglink education model with the prospective of conceptual learning grants fun and simplified teaching. Gone are those days when factual learning was enough. Today, students should be well aware of the know-how of its application and implement it practically. Infusing practical experiments and real-life scenarios, coupled with smart technology-oriented classes, rural students can fetch a good experience of learning akin to what an urban student is fortunate to receive.


4. Offering a platform for enrolling underprivileged kids under RTE


Schooglink collaborated with government bodies allowing students and parents to apply online for getting admission to premium schools of the city or district. It marks as a stepping stone for envisioning the growth of rural students and somehow realizes the dream of parents seeing their child in the best, high standard schools.


The urban-rural divide is deeply penetrated in the Indian landscape. Only precisely dealt endeavours can mark a revolutionary success. And Schooglink has to take several miles in its journey of educating every rural student.
