MANGALURU: After Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to radio for his popular ‘Mann Ki Baat’, it’s now the turn of Public Instruction Department to leverage the medium to improve the SSLC results in the state.  

From Wednesday, the radio stations in Mangaluru, Mysuru and Dharwad that cover about half of the state, have started broadcasting Maths, Science and English lessons under the programme ‘Baanuli Shaale’. It will be broadcast from 11 am to 11.30 am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the school hours. Speakers have been installed in classrooms to enable students make use of the facility.

Dakshina Kannda DDPI Y Shivaramaiah said a team of 21 expert teachers from government schools of Dakshina Kannada, seven from each subject, have prepared the 42-episode series with a focus on the syllabus of SSLC examination in particular and improving quality of teaching in general. Vijaya Rural Development Foundation has sponsored the programme.  

The DDPI said the foundation had sponsored similar programme last year but it was broadcast only from Mangaluru radio station which received a good response. This year, it was extended to other major radio station in order to help more students. The objective is to improve the pass percentage in these three subjects in which the students fail in more numbers.

Apart from this, he said they have also planned a number of measures to improve the results like helping students overcome exam fear and improve their will power, addressing social group specific problems, teaching on how to understand the questions, special attention and counselling to students scoring below 35 in exams, mock tests and others at Dakshina Kannada. Under social group specific problems, the DDPI said the religious clerics and parents are taken into confidence to improve the results of male students belonging to Muslim community as they are lagging behind in exams.  

At present, Dakshina Kannada stands second in results results in the state and they want to take the district to numero uno position.Out of 30,800 students who had appeared for the exam, 5,283 had failed, most of them in Maths, Science and English.
