11 Status of child labour and school attendance in Andhra Pradesh-Some Positive Notes Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh are the two states with highest jump in educational attendance ratios between 1991 and AP showed an increase of 25% and Rajasthan 26% as against an all India increase of 16% Rajasthan showed a jump of 31% and AP 29% as against an all India jump of 19% for girls AP jumped from 13th position to 4th position in case of girls in between 1991 and 2001next only to Kerala, Himachal Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

12 Challenges in MVF project area in AP Not enough school teachers at upper primary and high school level and teachers under pressure for better exam results and therefore systematically discourage children from taking the board examinations in class 10 Corporal punishment, insults, lack of text books, insistence on payment of school fees, school uniforms, push children out and especially from class six onwards Growth of fee charging private schools shows demand from the poor Girls in years find it difficult to stay in school and away from marriage Over reporting of children in schools-only children out of schools in AP in according to SSA

13 Class wise DISE data to in Andhra Pradesh Estimating Dropouts through Cohort Analysis

14 Crucial Dropout Years year1 to 22 to 33 to 44 to 55 to 66 to 77 to 88 to 99 to 10 Fail % in SSC Average dropout percentage

15 Challenges The entire education system has to be prepared to accept the backlog of millions of children in full time formal school with their complex backgrounds Take up the responsibility for integrating them and not push them out as they do not have the required standards

16 What needs to change The Nation must believe that is POSSIBLE to abolish child labour and universalise education and provide both the Legal and the Normative Framework to make it happen. Campaign Mode To motivate all sections of society for TOTAL abolition of child labour Emphasis on Process and Institution building and not on data and targets. Community Mobilization-v ia Gram Panchayats- & Youth Activists -the key to effective universalisation Area Based Approach To cover universe of all children in a 6-14 year Age group who are both in schools and out of schools Distinction between hazardous and Non-hazardous work must go Provide for children continuing in schools upto ClassX Funding Allocation must be demand driven Pattern of Expenditure to be varied based on Demand Need for sustained expenditure over defined periods of time WITHOUT a break Right to Education as a National Law
