 ( i ) Lack of local support and unclear concept

( ii ) Economic condition

( iii ) Lack of the help of the Govt .

( iv ) Participation of Gopabandhu is Indian National Movement

( v ) The death of Utkalmani

 (i) Lack of local support and unclear concept: Satyabadi Vanvidyalaya was surrounded with the conservative people and Brahmin society. Such conservatives did not appreciate the idealistic education system of Gopabandhu. Pandit Nilakantha Das wanted to build a classless society education which was a stroke to be conservatives. The conservatives opposed this and they don't like to read their children with other backward class children. The common dinner system was also opposed by them. They wanted to continue the superstitions. Lack of local support and the enrollment of children reduced. To oppose Gopabandhu's system of education 1912 on March 22 the conservatives fired on the school and the main property of the school library was destroyed. Such an incident shook the strength of the school.

 (ii) Non - cooperation of the Govt .: It was not a traditional education system nor followed the British system of education and opposed the olden beliefs , superstition and conservation . It is filled with idealism, patriotism, nationalism and social service programmes . It aimed at creating leaders for the state. So the British opposed it . No Govt . Grants have come and the application for Govt . Recognition was cancelled. The school was transferred under Calcutta University in 1916 and then to Patna University in 1917, but it could not get the govt . help.

 (iii) Economic condition: The third cause of the downfall of Open Air Schooling was the economic condition of the school. In 1921 Vana Vidyalaya was transferred into a National school. But the Govt . grant only two hundred rupees per year that we refused and cut off every relation from Patna University . In 1923, it became a national college and became autonomous. But it did not exist for long. It suffered from the financing causes . But even that step failed to restore the financial stability of the institution. Thus the financial stringency led to the collapse of the system.

 ( iv ) Participation of Gopabandhu is Indian National Movement : In 1920 , Utkalamani joined the non- cooperative movement . He invested all his time and resources in the freedom struggle. He found no time and resources to invest in groove school. Thus the Open Air Schooling led to its downfall.

 ( v ) Gopabandhu's premature death : Gopabandhu died prematurely on 17th June 1928 when he was in his early forties . No one was there to step into his soul . No one else was there to continue the education movement in Odisha . With his death ended & glorious chapter in the history of educational reform in Odisha .
