I consider it a privilege to speak to you through this forum. May I hope that you will find this site useful to you as a citizen or anybody who is interested in Krishnagiri District. We have tried to provide as many facilities as possible for catering to your requirements. But we are acutely aware of its limitations, especially the lack of Online Services which is the backbone of any Web Service.
This is an online portal developed especially for the Out Of School Children(O.O.S.C)., to monitor the children who were traced and brought back to school, their stay in the school till the age is 14.
As we are all aware, India has the largest number of out of School children in the world. Despite special programmes like, DPEP, NCLP, INDUS and SSA, a large number of children still continue to be outside the realm of education. Persistence of child labour. visible and invisible, social barriers, parental attitudes, push factors in school etc are critical factors contributing towards this unenviable situation.
The socio economic composition of drop out children suggests that educational deprivation occurs most among rural, urban poor and tribal children. The situation of girl children is far worse than that of boys. Usually out of school children get enrolled during intensive enrollment drives. Due to lack of proper tracking and monitoring system, the enrolled children drop out again after some time. It need not be overemphasized that no man, family or Nation can progress unless he/she tastes the potion called education.
For these out of school children, childhood as a time to grow, learn, play, enjoy etc is meaningless. It is under these circumstances that we have developed a web based software for tracking and monitoring all out of school children in the district. We strongly believe that it is possible to reach out to each and every family who require our help, provided the information is available to us. Usually, this may be available in the Village Education Register or through petitions, but these sources of information do not give us a global picture, and hence help given is only here and there.
While Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) provides the necessary flexibility for the District Administration in bridging zinfrastructural gaps, convergence of schemes and funds of various Government Departments and Non Government al Agencies help us to keep our promise to provide all necessary support to the families to keep the children going to school. Under this programme, all efforts are converged at a single web-based platform @
This is only in keeping with our Constitutional responsibilities, the Vision of our Great President and the thrust being given by the Government of Tamil Nadu. . I am sure we will succeed in this noble Endeavour and solicit your blessings and guidance.
Any Web Site, especially a Government Web Site will be useful only if it is periodically updated. This we hope to do on a continuous basis and to your satisfaction. I solicit your opinion on the structure and contents of this web site, its positives and negatives, so that we can improve on it. I also solicit your views and opinions on the various initiatives being taken by the District Administration.
We will ensure our District will be made to be a Model one.
