VASCO: A survey of each ward, panchayat and municipality needs to be undertaken to know how many children in the age group of six to 14 years have been denied the right to education and accordingly they should be enrolled in schools, said Alina Saldanha, Cortalim MLA and minister for environment and forests. She was speaking at the one-day community mobilization workshop in Vasco organized by Goa Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan ( SSA).
Many panchayat members, sarpanchas, heads of schools including headmasters and senior teachers gathered at the St Andrew's church hall, Vasco, on Tuesday morning. The workshop aimed at preparing the planning stage to implement the Right to Education Act. Farrel Furtado e Gracias, state project director of Goa Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, said, "There are a huge number of migrants coming to Goa. They come here and do their service to the state so even we should take a step and make sure that their children and ours, both get literacy which is their right."
