A farmer from Surkod village of Naragund taluk, Sangamesh Nayak said, "All parents in rural areas are not educated. We were worried about our children as some subjects are tough and they skip those lessons. Now officials have visited our house and trained our children and also asked their teachers to concentrate on them. We are happy about the new step taken by the officials and this will definitely impact on our children's results this year."
Naragund BEO J Raju said, "We have started this not only to improve the overall taluk's percentage but also to guide rural students, We have also plans to go for gram vastavya with some teachers and officials to reach all students of the taluk. It is a small move from our side and we want cooperation from teachers, students and also from parents. In Surkod village, many parents have given positive responses and blessed us."
