Maharashtra launches campaign to bring dropout students back to school



The school education department of Maharashtra has taken up “Mission Zero Dropout” campaign, aimed at bringing all students who dropped out of schools due to various reasons back into the education mainstream.

Children in the age group of 3-18 years, including those with special needs, are the targeted beneficiaries of this campaign. For the first time, the department has sought participation from various sections of the government such as Women and Child Development, Social Welfare and Justice, Revenue, Tribal and Minority departments — in the campaign. The idea is to make it a collaborative effort for effective results.

A Government Resolution (GR) was issued recently detailing the 15-day campaign which is expected to start from July 5. Until then, the department has to set up committees to ensure awareness and publicity for the campaign.
