dc.description.abstract PCF5 Sub-theme: Governance and social justice // Establishment of the Open School in Sri Lanka is a crucial step for achievement of the Millennium Development Goals of Education for All by year 2015 as this a low cost, non-formal, innovative channel to bring education to the doorsteps of children in thousands, youths and adults who have not benefited from the formal school system due to diverse reasons. On the other hand the out-of-school children's group is the most vulnerable group that has had their child rights violated in Sri Lanka. Even though they have the right to education and becoming good citizens, a majority these children have sacrificed their childhood forthe survival of their families. Although the Open School is established as an alternative path for them to continue their education without any barriers, the issue is how to create learning the environment to promote children's rights, to retain children in mainstream education than becoming drop outs. This paper will discuses how a child based approached could be applied to education and the management of the Open School system to create a learning environment with focus on the protection of child rights and for their retention in education. // Paper ID 285
