Hyderabad: Govt institutions have no spaces of understanding
Hyderabad: Books are standard requirements in a pupil’s life, however mostly all government institutions in the city do not have different collection areas. Recently, the Education division released ‘READ’ (Read, Enjoy as well as Develop) program, however did not provide sufficient publications.
According to government college educators, a couple of institutions have an analysis edge within class, however it does not have ample as well as appropriate publications. There are no appropriate centers for saving publications. In lack of a correct area for a collection, trainees are compelled to research in their class. Said Sharada, headmistress, Government Girls High School, Masab Tank,”for developing reading culture among students, the department introduced the programme. It is a 100-day programme; but has not been fruitfully used, as there are insufficient books.
A few NGOs have supplied books but they are not sufficient. We have given many representations to the department to provide books, but all fell on deaf ears. It will be better if the government provides sufficient books.”
According to Syam sunder, headmaster, Government High School, Borabanda,”in our school we don’t have a separate library room.But to promote reading habit and to lift their spirit by instilling higher values in students we are providing books in classroom itself. There are around 300 books but due to lack of proper space, we are forced to keep them in a corner of classroom. The department has to supply sufficient books; but it is telling us to collect books from donors and NGOs. It will be better if the government constructs a separate library room.”
Chava Ravi, Telangana State United Teachers’ Federation (TSUTF), claimed “the department is not showing interest in developing libraries in government schools. Under the Samagra Shiksha Programme Rs 50,000 has been allotted, but not been utilised properly. The government should provide libraries in all schools. The department issued instructions to conduct READ programme in all schools; but if it is to be continued regularly libraries should be provided sufficient books.”
