Parents welcome the move
Worried about their children's careers, parents in rural areas have welcomed the move and have appreciated the officials for considering the problems of rural students.

Now officials have visited our house to guide him and also told his teacher to concentrate on him. We are happy about the new step taken by the officials and this will definitely impact our results this year."

J Raju, Naragund BEO, said, "We have started this not only to improve the overall percentage in the taluks, but also to guide rural students in their academics.
