Speaking at the convention of School Development and Monitoring Committee (SDMC) and Citizen’s Amenities Committee (CAC) office-bearers held here on Tuesday, he said “owing to the English medium schools, there is a sharp decline of strength of students in Kannada medium schools. There is a need to create an awareness among the people, parents about the benefit of learning in Kannada medium schools.”
In his inaugural address, MLA Yogish Bhat suggested taking help of the potential donors, alumni and the public to develop infrastructure in schools instead of relying on government grants.
In his introductory remarks, Valored Convener Renny D’Souza said “there is a need to introduce uniform education system in the state. There is a need to remove the difference between various types of school curriculum existing. All should have access to same kind of education without change in the quality.”
“Shortage of teachers in government schools have been hampering the education system in the state. When a teacher is deputed for training, then the regular classes will be affected. The government should change the policy and arrange for supplementary teaching posts to fill the gap whenever, teachers are sent for training. Government should not conduct the training for teachers during the regular classes. Instead, training should be conducted during the vacation,” he added.
MLA U T Khader, Achyutha Gatti and others were present on the occasion.
