Society to join hands to implement RTE

Department of Public Instruction is in full throttle to implement the Right to Education Act of 2009, in the district efficiently, from this July onwards.

Deputy Director for Public Instruction N A Ramswamy said that on July 5, an unique programme ‘Shalegagi Navu Neevu: Banni Nammura Shalege Hogona’ (a School Nurturing Programme) will be started. Under this programme elected representatives, SDMC members, old students of the schools and academicians will visit the school and strive to ensure quality education in the school.

The programme will be held from 10 am to 1 pm during which all elected representatives, including the CM, Education Minister, MLAs, Ministers, Zilla Panchayat, Taluk Panchayat and Gram Panchayat members will visit any one school in their own constituency. 

The elected representatives will be accompanied by the old students and assure the little children that they will be imparted with quality education. This programme will be held across the state simultaneously.

Kodagu District Institute for Education and Training Principal C G Siddalingaswamy said that the programme is unique and significant one because it brings together elected representatives, SDMC members, old students and all those who have a role to play in improving the quality of education.

On July 5, a procession from the community will culminate at the schools. The participants will release literature on Right to Education Act, pledge to participate for the implementation of the Act,  unveil the board with information on the Act, plant saplings in school premises and take up various other programmes.

Prayer, news reading, singing national anthem, checking of attendance register classroom wise, maintenance of cleanliness in terms of uniform, text books, bicycles, school premises, bisi uta preparation, inspection of library, functioning of SDMC will be held from July 5 onwards.

There are as many as 457 government schools where 65,000 students are studying. The new programme hopes to bring about qualitative changes.
