What can be done to improve Corporate involvement in elementary education?The Tamil Nadu Government is open to donations from the private sector, the giant Corporate houses in particular, to improve standards of education in Government elementary and high schools. It has even held some discussions in this regard.
Some action has been taken. The Corporate houses have begun by donating old but usable computers in some cases. In some rare cases, going by press reports, one learns that Corporate houses are keen on constructing usable rest rooms,where there are none now.
This should actually become a pan-India exercise, particularly where the elementary enrollment is still a matter of big concern. We should learn from successful experiences.
Members may please highlight such successful experiences. On my part, I have initiated some action and some computers have now been donated to a couple of schools. What are the various types of such Corporate involvement already on? How do we go about this task?
