Project to make Govt school kids proficient


Mangaluru: With an aim to make government school students proficient in English like their counterparts in private English medium schools, the Early Learning Centre (ELC) is launching a project in association with the School Development Monitoring Committees (SDMCs).

Students of five government schools in Gandhinagar, Mannagudda, Surathkal, Kodikkal and Marakada will be taught English through the Karadi Path method, an indigenously developed language learning process, to achieve proficiency in the language by the time they complete Class X.

Sonia Moras, coordinator of ELC, said: "Students in government schools face the problem of English comprehension. If a child from a disadvantaged background is able to read, comprehend and speak English, it throws open doors to a whole new world of books and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC)."

ELC had earlier initiated 'Be the change!' project for underprivileged children.

The programme, which will begin in December, entails an annual fee of Rs 750, which, Tulasi said, could be arranged by the parents or by SDMCs through donations. This is for the teaching material and not to any organisation, she added.

For starters, the programme will be held three to four times a week depending on the number of volunteers and the size of the class.
