How do we make our rural students to catch up?One of the major problems associated with any rural student, is that he or she is blissfully unaware of global developments and, more so, business developments, even within India. There are a huge number of reasons for this sorry state of affairs. Chief among them is the utter lack of knowledge of teachers in schools and colleges in rural and semi urban areas, about such developments, and a big "don't care" attitude. Since the parents are also mostly farmers, apart from their native intelligence related to farming practices, their view of the world, is limited too.
Parents and teachers, who are otherwise far better placed, have a duty in this regard. Can we develop nodal colleges, in cities, which will impart such education to students and staff of rural colleges? Can we develop some online education and, if yes, how do we go about doing it?
