How sports and play prompts quality education

India has made rapid strides in universalising primary #education in the past few years, with the introduction of RTE, SSA and the Mid-day meal scheme. While children from marginalised communities can rightfully access a public education system, many only make it to enrolment. This is particularly true for girls, disabled children, and children from SC & ST communities who drop out of school for various reasons, diminishing all future prospects of employability. Sports in schools has proved to be an intrinsically motivating factor for children to attend school regularly, re-enroll, create positive psychological changes, promote inclusiveness and fair play, enhance focus and memory, which is turn helps raise academic performance. The right to education cannot succeed in isolation. It needs the integration of a sports curriculum into the education system, here’s why. #playmatters #khelbadal#childhoodplay
