How to help the rural children to express themselves?Very rarely, the rural students in any part of the country, get a chance to express themselves. For example, the number of students who pass the prestigious IIT JEE examination for admission into NITs and IITs is still not very high, when compared to those from the urban centers and the metros. In this context, the Tamil Nadu Government made it a point to give admission into the rural area students to study in the best engineering colleges, purely based on the plus two examination scores.
However, even this method does have its own demerits as the rote learning leads to high marks.
Yet, how do we shake the hassles of rural students? How do we get them to excel? Can mentoring by the urban area teachers be an option in both schools and colleges?
