Abstract:
The study is an attempt to assess the academic performances of the Children in Need of Care and Protection living in the Children Homes of Assam, a state of the Indian Union. Attempt has been made to compare the performances of the children living in children homes run by the State and ones run by NGOs. Though both types of children homes are to follow the same Act, i.e. The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children), 2000, yet there is much difference between both types regarding issues like administration, fund, infrastructure etc. The study encompasses 8 (Eight) Children Homes situated at 7(seven) districts of Assam with total 180 respondents. For the study 4(four) numbers of Children Homes from each type i.e. State-run and NGO-run, have been considered. It is seen that the respondents living in both types of homes have performed differently at different levels. Since the children living in the children homes are integral part of our society and they do have the right to proper education measures to be ensured so that the achievers will be encouraged for further education and remedial action can be chalked out for the average or below average children for better and continuous education.
