It is a time-bound initiative of the central government in partnership with the states, the local government and the community to achieve the goal of universalisation of elementary education.
Bridge courses and back-to-school camps have been introduced to increase the enrollment in elementary education. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan aimed to improve the education system in government schools.
