About Sarva Siksha Mission (SSM)

       Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) is Government's main programme for achievement of Universalization of Elementary Education (UEE) in a time bound manner, as mandated by 86th amendment to the Constitution of India making free and compulsory Education to the Children of 6-14 years age group, a Fundamental Right. In the present phase of SSA, it is mandatory to ensure that the approach and strategies for universalising elementary education are in conformity with the rights perspective mandated under the RTE Act 2009 . The RTE Act 2009 provides that ‘Every child of the age of 6-14 years’ shall have a right to free and compulsory education in a neighbourhood school till completion of elementary education.

        Its overall goals include universal access and retention, bridging of gender and social category gaps in education and enhancement of learning levels of children. SSA provides for a variety of interventions, including inter alia, opening of new schools and alternate schooling facilities, construction of schools and additional classrooms, toilets and drinking water, provisioning for teachers, periodic teacher training and academic resource support, text books and support for learning achievement, Learning Assessments, Monitoring-Supervision and strengthening of the academic support structure at a cluster, block and district level. SSA seeks to provide quality elementary education including life skills. SSA has a special focus on girl's education and children with special needs. SSA also seeks to provide computer education to bridge the digital divide. These provisions are aligned with the legally mandated norms and standards and free entitlements mandated by the RTE Act.     .
