The NCEE in collaboration with Aide et Action International and the Centre for Migration and Inclusive Development (CMID) organised the first ever national consultation on the State of Access to Education for Children of Migrant Workers on August 17, 2022.
Most migrant children spend an average of six months in cities/towns with their parents who migrate to these places in search of better opportunities. For these six months, the children may or may not be enrolled in a nearby school and even if they are, they may be learning in an alien language and trying to cope up with peers who have the advantage of studying in the same classroom for an entire year or more. When they go back with their parents, yet again, they may or may not go to school. If they do, they may be learning completely different concepts. And the cycle continues.
