This empirical paper studies the different approaches of India in speeding-up education spectrum to eradicate poverty. The research focuses on means for transforming poverty education formula towards ‘Capacity vs Demand’ rather than ‘Supply vs Demand’ which would help to improve the quality of the education delivered to the poor with minimal resources.

The research involves a thorough descriptive analysis of India’s poverty elimination schools, or its educational approach means, through using observation as a tool. The researcher reviews the current Indian approaches that could overcome the unique barriers of poor quality education. Six types of educational approaches are evaluated in relevance to their capacity to deliver ‘lifelong learning’, ‘learning by doing’, and ‘self-sufficiency’, besides the ‘assets of wealth’ of the poor. These variables are taken in relevance to the poverty areas where the educational setup are explored. The paper concludes with recommendation about the level of educational focus need to improve the quality of education outcome in relevance to poverty elimination.
