A Feasibility and Validation Study of the Kalikayatna Initiative Completed

Area(s) of work: Education

Duration: Jan 2015 – Jul 2015

Status: Completed

Funder/ Partner: Prajayatna

CBPS is involved in the validating the Kalikayatna initiative – A new approach to learning, operating in lower and higher primary government schools in selected states across India. The feasibility of expanding this approach to all government schools in Karnataka will also be examined. Emphasis, in this approach, is placed on ‘how’ children learn rather than on ‘what’ they learn. This initiative, which arose due to large scale absenteeism and non-enrollment in state schools, is the result of a collaboration between the NGO Prajayatna and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. Prajayatna, currently, supports Kalikayatna in both Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh.
