They read better today
More than 95 per cent of 69,800 children in government schools can read better today; 45,000 children who could not read before can now read without any hitch. The 45-day accelerated reading programme, conducted jointly by Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Akshara Foundation across primary classes in over 1,400 government schools in Bangalore, has done wonders for children.
Announcing the results of this highly-successful programme, primary and secondary education minister Basavaraj Horatti said; “We will now take this programme across the state. People expect the government to solve sill problems, but they must learn from organisations like Akshhra Foundation which has joined hands with us to tackle this problem of poor reading skills among government school children.”
