PRE-SCHOOL­ING NOT FOR THE POOR

Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Punjab / Haryana -

Apro­pos the ar­ti­cle ‘Why preschools need to adopt in­no­va­tive strate­gies’, there is a size­able pop­u­la­tion of chil­dren in the 3-6 age group who are yet to at­tend pre-school. Even an­gan­wadis, op­er­at­ing un­der the depart­ment of women and child devel­op­ment, can­not re­place pre-school ed­u­ca­tion which, psy­cho­log­i­cally and so­cially, is the most im­por­tant stage in the life of a child. Sadly, pre-school ed­u­ca­tion is ac­ces­si­ble only to the rich. State gov­ern­ments should link pre-school or prepri­mary ed­u­ca­tion with for­mal schools. S Ku­mar, Panchkula
