Through these ERCs we aim at activating a process of education were the poorest in the rural areas will be provided an authentic education for their holistic development.  The process of learning will be child oriented and activity based, so that the dropout rate can be reduced.  The whole education orientation will be towards social justice.  The approach to education will not be institutional but people oriented.  The education envisaged should include a complete training and formation of the human person.  This must cover the physical, social, spiritual and moral development of the integral human personality.  Value and right attitudes must be inculcated in these primary schools as the most fundamental basis of a true human development.
