In 2008 we had a review of the Child Friendly School initiative which had started in Surpur, an underdeveloped and underserved area of NEK in 2005, with the objective of quality education to all children in a child friendly atmosphere. We were working in the block consisting 300 plus schools in 5 areas – 1. School environment, 2. Classroom environment, 3. Teaching learning process, 4. Teacher academic development and 5. Community participation. The review threw up the fact that among the five areas the most neglected areas were teacher academic development and community participation. Our deeper analysis on these review results made it clear that without teacher academic development nothing significant in education could be done.
