Why not encourage Good Government school teachers?A few months ago, a report in a Tamil magazine was shocking to say the least. A Govt school in a remote village had the headmistress who donated her own money to buy computers and also appealed for the local community to help. She made significant progress, as the school had fresh enrollment, based only on her efforts. She also encouraged the children to do organic farming within the school and used the vegetables for the midday meal, which is sponsored by the Government of Tamil Nadu.
We should try to encourage such teachers. If there is a big industry nearby, we can request the trained English personnel to handle classes. We can also chip in with whatever resources we can give to these schools. As such, there is no bar on any private donation to such schools. In fact, we would have done the best possible social work, if we support such initiatives.
Members, who know such success stories may please report them here.
