One key work during fellowship


  • A study revealed ineffective reporting mechanism, tardy grievances redressal and an almost non-existent monitoring system in elementary education in the district.

What was done:

  • Consultations with students, teachers, parents, and officials.
  • Step-by-step plan to improve all the three factors identified.
  • Activating the processes at the school level followed by cluster level then at the block level and finally culminating at the district level.
  • Continuous feedback from stakeholders and corrections at the appropriate level


  • Reporting by CRCCs has become regular and grievances attended to.
  • Strong monitoring has made teacher absenteeism rare.
  • Quality of MDM has vastly improved resulting in increased attendance in a few clusters.
  • Incidences of corporal punishment has gone down tremendously.
