The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan or the SSA is a central government project aimed at making education accessible to every child in India. The initiative was launched in 2001. Since then, over 35 million Indian children have joined the noble mission. The main aim of the SSA is to provide primary education to every child and improve upon the quality of education imparted.
With the mission’s progress, the drop-out rate among children, receiving primary education, has also seen a considerable decline. The SSA’s funds allocation has been on the rise ever since its launch, as the mission has been hugely successful. Even the Supreme Court maintains that the right to one’s life also includes a fair opportunity and a right to education. The National Human Rights Commission has further stressed upon the importance of the SSA and the right to education for every child.
