Tamilnadu: CM M.K.Stalin launches unique academic scheme, ‘Education at your doorstep’
Tamilnadu Chief Minister M.K.Stalin launched an unique academic scheme, Education at your doorstep, yesterday at Villupuram. He also released an app related to the scheme and the theme song.
The novel and ambitious scheme is all set to give education to every child in the State, which was badly hit by the pandemic. The scheme will be operational from 15th November.
The enrolled volunteers of the scheme will engage with students for one hour every evening in spaces that will be identified and opened in the community.
Registration is open to volunteers from across the state. The initiative will first begin in 12 districts. Students from government as well as private schools can attend these classes, which will be activity based and will give them an opportunity to enjoy and learn. The volunteer student ratio would be 1 : 20 and over one lakh volunteers are expected to join the initiative.
Persons who have studied upto class XII can teach students of Classes 1 to V and degree holders can teach middle school students. Around six hours of classes will be held throughout the week for every cohort of students.
A state level committee would oversee the implementation of the initiative. District – level and block – level committees would also be formed, and the school management committees would be roped in. Educationists hope that the outreach will set a new trend in education.
