Primary Education: A Lifeline to Urban Slum Transformation, A Case Study of Schools in Dharavi, Mumbai, India
In developing countries like India, there are large urban slums with a high proportion of people who don’t have a proper formal education

ABSTRACT

In developing countries like India, there are large urban slums with a high proportion of people who don’t have a proper formal education. This study explores how primary education can help raise income levels and make a big difference to the lives of slum dwellers.

This is also a case study of some leading schools in Dharavi - Asia's biggest slum spread across 2.1 squarekilometers with a population of about 1 million, located in Mumbai – and their teaching standards. We also look at factors due to which slum-children drop out of primary classes and what can be done to reduce the drop-out rate and promote education.

This research project focuses primarily on primary education which can be the lifeline to urban slum transformation in Dharavi.
