Eklavya is a non-government organisation based in Madhya Pradesh working since 1982 towards innovations in school education. This article draws on Eklavya’s intervention between 2015-19 for primary school children in thirty-four villages of a tribal block in Madhya Pradesh. The goal was to ensure that language and maths competency scores improved over four years of work. This was achieved to some extent: however, we discovered that some children who attended school, as well as Eklavya’s support centres, remained at the level of zero score over a year of attendance. We will discuss how Eklavya examined the issue and the possible steps that were envisaged to help all children learn.
