Group Discussions – May 26 2016

Guru Poornima: I have gone through the discussion of last evening…irrespective of genders let us value and appreciate each other s emotions, as we are all in same ship,let us make ourselves dedicated to the cause for what we are here,let us b dynamic and devoted to improve the downtrodden schools..little service with better quality at the end day make a mighty ocean …thank you all
Kollegala Sharma: I went through yesterdays discussion. I believe a school is a social engineering lab where not only knowledge and skills to survive the competitive world are given but also behaviours needed to make the society better are managed. A society is better when each and every one respects every other one irrespective of qualification, wealth, caste or gender. Any biases in these only bring more crime and harassment in the society affecting its health. Schools should not have any biases as far as possible. I am yet to see such an ideal school, because the concept of vishvamanava, that human beings are one, is still a mirage. We need to change that, but I dont know how.

Girish Mudigere: If we talk less on genders it may help sir ji

Dr MD Shivraja: Gender is mental.Sex is’s all mind over matter.If u mind too much it matters.if u don’t mind it doesn’t matter

Kollegala Sharma: Good point Girish. I think Linnet was making that point that directly or indirectly we are reinforcing the biases through examples, jokes, comments and lessons. What I feel should be done is that such biases whereever they happen should be pointed out as biases to children.

Renni D’souza: GENDER EQUALITY IS OUR CORE VALUES OF OUR CONSTITUTION please don’t take it lightly. That should be the purpose of education

Girish Mudigere: This should be informed to media sir. They should never highlight….humanity is more important

Kollegala Sharma: Yes. It is not just constitution, we need to understand that it is essential for a human being:Media highlights issues because these acts, say harassments, occur because of biases. Unless the biases are pointed out we may not notice it:Just tell me. Where do I come from? My full name is A.S.K.V.S.Sharma: Am I Kannadiga or not? Seriously:Legally, yes. But many think I am a Telugu. This shows a bias. A generalisation. What we need to do is to teach that these generalisations are biases and the reality can be different. That education is not happening.

Jayalaxmi Gowda: I agree Sharma sir that media highlights the issues. Because of media attention laws are made to protect girl children.Media has its own pros and cons but issues do exist: It need to be approached at the elementary level. Equality concept should be brought there. Because they are the future citizens. Good seeds need to be down very early to give a good fruit later

Shashikumar added SVYM Praveen

Ranjani: Gender is an extremely important issue and a great source of discrimination and marginalisation. We should always look at issues from various lenses, gender is a most important lens. We should foreground gender affirmatively, otherwise we can’t move towards an equitable society. Schools must be one such place of critical examination of gender biases and issues.

Yogish: Let’s focus on school development in this group

Girish Mudigere: Lets collect ideas how we can convince politicians and administrators: To improve Government Schools

Shashikumar: Plz.. Avoid discussion about gender bias..

Linnet D Silva: Focus is not on bias It’s on how to arrive at equity. We need to see how education can help in bridging the gap. It’s a healthy check up and operation: We need not fear of healthy opening up.

Girish Mudigere: Lets focus infrastructure government schools : Not fear…people will leave the group aste

Nagesh TK: From 30 schools are opening, what about notebooks sir

Siddappa Malavalli: Good question …

Akshata: Was going through your messages n saw passing percentage n few colleges have cent percent results. Its not fair to judge college pass percentage : Many colleges cut off will be above 90%. So obviously they will get good pasd percent : The change has to be brought by govt to provide admissions for all percentage students proportionately : The main challenge lies in college if they can improve dull students n get more pass percentage. Where should the students with less percentage go. dont they deserve to be in some good colleges to get good education to improve themselves.

Yogish: I agree. I don’t like the culture and pressure from these high performing schools, I have witnessed these schools. But criteria for parents to admit their kids is pass %. I am just benchmarking these schools just for % of pass rate, they are very poor (may be at the bottom) in considering to admit all students : Our strength should be admitting all students and achieve 100% pass rate. I believe in this. Let’s plan 10 schools for this.

Akshata: How to bring awareness about this

Guru Poornima: Solution is primary education must be strengthened

Yogish: Every parents knows that their children admitted in to Expert or Mahesh college because of their SSLC score (is above 90%), obviously those students score above 90% in PUC too. There is no greatness about these high performing colleges. These colleges just add extra pressure and conduct extra classes including on Sunday’s. But parents feel ver proud if their children’s are studying in high performing schools or colleges. No awareness required. Just bring up the performance of govt schools : I think we are very clear about requirements of govt schools to sustain . Just performance, performance and performance.

Raviteja: Our first week #‎seedball effect, we had taken, 15 seed balls for experimenting

in that we found 4 tamarind and 5 avenue(ಹೊಂಗೆ ಮರ) trees sprouted successfully,which means 60% successful (9 out of 15): kudos to all, who were part of this event towards mother nature care

hope we shall see more volunteers in the coming weeks, to make this event more successful and spending your day with nature, to give back a little, when we have taken a lot

Guru Poornima: Amazing result Ravi, will be joining for the successive events…..congrats again …keep growing

Chandrakant Acharya: Raviteja ji congratulations!!!

Girish Mudigere: Raviteja sir….excellent … any methods needed to safeguard? Lets try together ….excellent though

Girish Mudigere: Notebooks……we will update shortly …….few NGOs have given positive response……as it is donation from them, it may not be before May 30th : Let me make clear, we are not donors and definitely time line or commitment behalf of others is not possible…..kindly wait…..if it doesnot happen in June…..sure students suffer

Akshata good points…..excellent solutions by Poornima and Yogish…….lets make 10 Government Schools like top brand ones…….lets select and publish 10 schools to improve starting now

Panchappa: Girish, Yogish and friends, our villagers and old students have cleaned our govt., school on Sunday this month. Monday onwards, they started “Dakhalathi Andolana” : They are doing a wonderful job: 5th or 6th of June, we are conducting World’s environment day: Girish actually more villagers participated than our team. Just we informed them by phone on Saturday. They started on Sunday: I think if we support them morally, socially, scientifically, economically, they will create wonder.

Girish Mudigere: High Regards to all of your Team Panchappa Sir : Excellent Start…….really appreciate Sir: Panchappa sir…..keep up admission campaign …..excellent : 100% agreed sir

Panchappa: 3 students get back their admission from private school to govt.,
