ELIMINATING OF CHILDLABOUR THROUGH EDUCATION
1.TEACHERS TRAINING ON GRADATION SYSTEM PHASE –I
The main objective of this programme is to send back all the children to regular school who are currently studying in PIRD’s educational centers for child labor. To achieve this aim we had decided to group them accordingly & understand, encourage & help them with consideration of following points:
Ø Every child has different E.I. (Emotional Intelligence) & I.Q.(Intelligent Quotient)
Ø Every child is unique in nature.
Ø Every child has got unique background.
We have found that it’s helpful for teachers as well as children if teachers know in advance about the background of child. Also, we had decided that local teacher should take the basic aptitude test. To coordinate this, we took a training programme for teachers on April13, 2008 at Disabled Children Technical School, Chakur dist. Latur.For this programme we had arranged the guidance of following resource persons.
1. Mr. Tukaram Palmte, Subject Specialist
2. Mr. Haridas Tammewar, Senior Level Headmaster
3. Mr. W.S.Pande , The Best Teacher
The following points were discussed and agreed upon:
Ø Every child is gifted with unique capabilities. Teachers always have to keep this fact in mind while teaching.
Ø Not a single child is dull. If school is incapable to understand him/her, he/she will not be in a position to consider the same.
Ø To understand a child, sometimes teachers have to play a role of mother/ friend.
Ø Every child’s communication skills need to be improved. It’s there always, but teachers need to create opportunities.
Ø The local activist has to always keep in mind while working that the children are away from school because of school’s inability to attract or retain them and not vice versa.
Ø In order to bring these children in mainstream, the basis aptitude test should be conducted after every 2 months.
Ø As the village teacher have to play the role of local activist, regular training for them is also necessary.
HOW TO APPLY GRADATION TEST AT STUDY CENTERS ?
It’s been discussed and agreed upon that there is no need for separate question paper or different process to conduct the basic aptitude test for children in study centres. The question paper, which is used in Government’s Z.P. School, can be used. The information regarding how to use this question paper and practice for it has been given in this training programme.
It has been decided that for class I, class II, 1 & 2 question papers should be used respectively. For class III, and class IV, 3 question papers can be used. The sample question papers were provided to teachers. It’s been decided that according to the results grading should be done and the syllabus should be carried out as well as the class of the child should be changed. The children who found to be good at studies should be sent to regular school.
