Private education is considered to be an option for the privileged and for those who are willing to bear the extra expenses. However many parents send their children to be educated in a public education system as the education obtained here can be equally effective and appealing. Today, brilliant children can also have significant scope for the development of their skills due to the sponsorship programs for public education.
The need for a sponsorship program:
Though the public schools and colleges are much more affordable as compared to private institutes, they do need help from time to time. This need is prominently felt in countries like Africa, India, Bangladesh and many others, where government funds can be short. Many of these public schools therefore depend on funds obtained from generous minded sponsors. Thus, welfare organizations, businessman, rich corporate companies can step forward to support the efforts of the government through their sponsorship and funds.
Supporting public education:
There is sometimes a very prominent misconception that public education system does not need a sponsorship program because of the backing of the government. However, these funds in themselves are insufficient and can lead to a dearth of essential requirements and accessories. During this time sponsors can step in to lend their support and enthusiasm to the children studying in public education system. Thus, sponsors can cover the cost of the maintenance of buildings, of making available necessary accessories like study material, benches, playground facilities, sports facilities etc. thus, the sponsors can touch the lives of millions of school children in a number of ways.
Some sponsors also formulate their own scholarship programs which aim both to single out the extremely talented and hard working candidates, as well as to give them a chance of succeeding in their chosen path with the availability of all necessary facilities. The sponsors can also take on the responsibility of overseeing the higher education of such brilliant pupils. Sponsored public education systems also try and do their bit to acknowledge the gratitude of the sponsors. They do this by crediting the sponsors’ with a plaque, a certificate of appreciation or through open acknowledgement of the efforts of the sponsors. Some sponsors however refrain from getting the credit for the same.
Thus, overall, the sponsors can help a great deal and can contribute their bit to enhance the quality of the public education system of a country.
