Nurture talent in children, Minister tells teachers

It is unfortunate that people do not use their knowledge for inculcating values. There is a lot of difference in the education system of the past and present. The society should nurture a talent, said Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Kimmane Rathnakar.

He was speaking after inaugurating district high school level Prathibha Karanji at Sri Mallikarjuna Rural High school in Heerenallur village in Kadur taluk on Wednesday. He said that programmes like Prathibha Karanji will help students to overcome inferiority complex and brings out their hidden talent. “Children are like God and they do not understand inequality. Therefore, the elders should sow the seeds of equality in them and help them to imbibe moral values,” he said.

The Minister also declared of releasing Rs 25 lakh immediately, for the repair of the government primary school in Kadur where Chief Justice of India H L Dattu had pursued his primary education. Additional amount will be released if at all need arises, he said.
Kadur MLA Y S V Datta criticised the decision of the Zilla Panchayat Standing Committee on Education, to transfer additional teachers from Kadur, Birur and Tarikere.

The transfering teachers in the middle of the academic year will have its impact on students. Therefore, it has to be stopped immediately, he demanded.

He also demanded the government to make facilities in the schools for introducing English as a medium of instruction in government schools. Computers that have been given to schools have remained unutilised. More number of D group workers should be appointed in schools urgently, he urged.
