The Tribal Development Department (TDD) supports approximately 6 lakh tribal students studying in 1108 ashram schools and 490 hostels of Maharashtra.  This project is aimed at and conceived based on the fundamental belief that all these tribal children are well on the road of getting good quality education, can and must learn at much higher levels — we will be looking at 2 schools to create model school akin with best school in the country. The project’s main components are:

  • Clearly defined, in measurable terms, expectations for what students need to know and be able to do to succeed in school, in the workplace and in life.
  • Focuses on results, measuring and reporting student, school and system performance so that students, teachers, parents and the public can understand and act on the information.
  • Bases consequences for policymakers, educators, and students on demonstrated performance.
  • Meaningful preparation and continuous learning for teachers and administrators that drives improved teaching, learning and school management.
  • Freedom of action and resources necessary for high performance and true accountability.
  • Enables parents to support the learning process, influence schools and make choices about their children’s education.
  • Provides high-quality pre-kindergarten education for disadvantaged children.
  • Uses technology to broaden access to knowledge and to improve learning and productivity.
  • Provides a safe, well-disciplined and caring environment for student learning.
Project Objectives

Provide a framework for fixing priorities and determining objectives;
>Orient educational systems in accordance with needs of social, economic and cultural development;
>Allow the best possible use to be made of these resources attributed to education.

Project Aim
The aim is to ensure the best educational conditions possible, while keeping costs down to a reasonable level. Considerations will be given to maximize fixing of various parameters, such as: the number of study hours per week and their distribution by subject, the number of pupils per class and their division into smaller groups for certain activities (in workshops, laboratories, etc.); normal length of time for which premises should be used and the qualitative possibilities of introducing digital optimization within teachers’ working hours and the extent of their specialization. Given such parameters, standard sizes need to be fixed which will enable the institutions to be run with full utilization of premises and teachers.
