Class XII rural girls in Rajasthan's Tonk to get free coaching for better performance
Free coaching classes are going to be held in Niwai block of Rajasthan's Tonk district through Centre for Unfolding Learning Potentials (CULP) - the NGO committed to the cause of the education of rural marginalised girls.

It was found that rural government education for girls in the subjects of English, Mathematics and Science subjects has suffered a great setback.

The is an acute gender bias in rural school education, the parents prefer to send boys for education while free and washed education is made accessible to girls. In the rural areas, owing to poor quality of classroom instruction in government schools, the girls in senior secondary school had been performing badly in Maths, Sciences and English.

To help the rural girls perform better in board examination, free coaching classes for girls have been designed to attend to their hard spots of learning and sharpen their examination skills. The funding has come to CULP to execute the coaching classes with well-designed courseware for the difficult portion of the curricula.

"We will impart coaching to girls in which they will be trained in study skills and guided mastery learning on difficult portions of the curricula with enough practice and organise accelerated revision of their courses and give them periodic tests and mock three-hour examination sessions to gain confidence and perform well in the board examination. A lot of remedial teaching will be done to bridge the learning gaps of the girls due to poor teaching in government rural schools," said Rama Sharma, coordinator of coaching intervention at CULP.

For designing the framework of coaching, a workshop for three CULP functionaries was held and before launching the coaching classes, the training of the coaches is going to be held starting from November 20.

A back up support system for the free coaching centre is going to be put in place so that process purity and validity of the design does not get compromised, said the coordinator of the intervention.
