Education and social change: Role of a school in the transformation of a village
This article looks at the role played by a school towards the social change within a village. The involvement of the school with the students and their families has made them connect fruitfully with the community. The extent of their connection has made it possible for them to sensitise the community towards education, and through education the corresponding importance of getting rid of social ills of child labour, child marriages and early end to daughter’s education. They also help in sensitizing the children about their rights. Further, through their pedagogical practices, they have made it possible to instill constitutional values of equality, fraternity and secularism along with fighting the evils of feudalism still existent in the village. This study does reflects on the role of the work done by the school and uses the ethnographic as well as semi-guided interview methods to gather data.
