Reboot Education

Reboot Education

Imparting quality education for all is the foremost duty of any government to safeguard the future of the younger generation. Kolkata in its glorious history had increased the country's pride by providing us Nobel laureates such as Rabindranath Tagore. But in the present age, the city's education infrastructure is crumbling under administrative neglect.

Like any other government department, the education department has turned into a rudderless ship. The staggering conditions of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMCP) primary schools gives away the disheartening ground reality. How else can you explain the Government spending of Rs 500 crore in repainting state-run schools in certain colors when schools are struggling for even basic infrastructure such as blackboards, classrooms, libraries, clean toilets and teachers. A dismal ratio of 13 colleges per lakh population in West Bengal as opposed to the national average of 28 is another rising concern. In fact, the district of Kolkata ranks far below in comparison to districts like Bangalore urban, Hyderabad, Pune and Mumbai in terms of number of colleges, leaving students with no choice but to migrate to other cities for higher education. Those without enough resources are forced to drop out as is reflected in the low gross enrolment ratio in higher education at 19.3% against the national average of 26.3%.

It's high time now, join us in questioning the neglected state of our education system. Raise your voice to Reboot Education in Kolkata to unleash the true potential of the city's young, bright minds.
