eviction process was based only on public voting but she later learned that it was 50 per cent content provided by the contestant on the show and 50 per cent votes The actor said this is unfair to the fans who vote in large numbers to save their favourites WATCH VIDEO:Bigg Boss 10 November 23 Episode Review: Nitibha Kaul Irks Swami Om To Grab Limelight “I was shocked when Karan was evicted because he had the maximum number of votes He has such a huge fan following so I didn’t understand how he lost to others Then I read that unofficially they count 50 per cent content and rest half voting This is unfair to all the people who voted for him There are so many young fans who must have used their pocket money to vote for him So if you say officially that only votes will be counted then that’s wrong” Nisha spoke during an exclusivechat with indianexpresscom Also read |Bigg Boss 10: Karan Mehra feels female contestants were fine with Swami Om’s nasty comments While Nisha is happy with

is straightforward and effective The process focuses on children currently enrolled in Classes III to V The 10th edition of the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) by Pratham released last week shows that over the last decade basic learning levels for children in elementary school in India have remained low Only about half of Class V children in rural India can read a simple Class II level text and a similar proportion can do a two-digit subtraction problem with borrowing While there are some variations across states and a few exceptions from year to year it would not be wrong to say that at least half of all Indian children — close to 100 million — are at least two to three years behind grade level We cannot simply sit and year after year observe comment on or contest these findings Something has to be done The biggest educational challenge facing the country its policymakers practitioners and parents is: Are there proven cost-effective and scalable interventions that can significantly improve basic learning in our primary schools For the past decade several players government and non-government have been working on improving the situation Pratham has also been developing models and methods to improve children’s basic reading and arithmetic abilities While several states are experimenting with innovative programmes aimed at improving learning few have been tested rigorously for impact and scalability in a government-run primary school system In the last decade Pratham’s work has been rigorously evaluated by researchers affiliated with MIT’s Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) These impact evaluations use randomised control trial methodology and indicate that significant gains in learning outcomes can be achieved by re-organising and grouping children by their learning level rather than the usual grouping by age or standard This “teaching at the right level” model is straightforward and effective The process focuses on children currently enrolled in Classes III to V and starts by assessing children one-on-one using simple tools: Can they read a paragraph Simple everyday words Letters Or nothing at all And similarly for maths For instruction children are then grouped by their learning level not grade Teaching-learning activities and materials for each group are based on their level and aimed at enabling children progress to the next level and beyond The goal is to ensure that students gain basic competencies in reading and arithmetic The programme owes its success in no small measure to the establishment of level-wise groups explicit learning goals for each group and tailored teaching techniques This contrasts with the existing practice of teaching a prescribed curriculum to students of a given age irrespective of their ability to comprehend it The model lends itself easily to modification to suit local needs; it has been successful when implemented by government teachers within school hours or during summer holidays in several states as well as when implemented by volunteers in classes outside of schools or as short bursts of “learning camps” during school hours Two recently concluded randomised evaluations of “teaching at the right level” in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh provide promising insights into how this model can be scaled up successfully within a government school system In Haryana 400 schools participated in an intervention implemented by the government and supported by Pratham in 2012-13 Students enrolled in Classes III IV and V in 200 of these schools were randomly assigned to this model Students in the selected schools were re-organised by their reading level and taught for one hour each day using level-appropriate materials and methods The programme was implemented by trained government teachers during school hours while block- and cluster-level education officials monitored implementation and provided ongoing academic support to teachers At the start of this programme only 34 per cent of students were able to read a simple paragraph or story Upon completion this number jumped to 53 per cent for students in schools that participated as compared to only 48 per cent for students in schools that did not participate Results from the UP study are even more dramatic In this study across 484 schools locally recruited and trained volunteers and Pratham staff conducted classes for reading and arithmetic in short bursts of 10 or 20 days or “learning camps” These camps were periodically held in government schools during school hours for a total of 50 days over the 2013-14 academic year At the start of this programme and the school year only 15 per cent of students were able to read a simple paragraph or story Upon completion of the programme and by the end of the school year this number jumped to 48 per cent for students in schools that participated as compared to 24 per cent for students in schools that did not In an environment where regular school seems to be completely failing the children just 50 days brought them to the level of the children in Haryana Stubbornly low learning levels are an endemic and growing problem across India While NGOs like Pratham are scaling-up proven interventions like “teaching at the right level” to reach tens of thousands of students there are many millions who need immediate intervention This is where state governments become crucial Over the past couple of years state governments in Bihar Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh have adopted evidence-based models such as “teaching at the right level” and launched similar efforts But more needs to be done to convert these pilots to fully scaled and sustained programmes and to encourage other state governments to adopt interventions that have been rigorously tested for impact and are cost-effective An underlying commonality amongst these first movers is a determination to admit that the education system is not delivering and a flexibility to reorient their attention to ensure that students first gain basic competencies before more ambitious (but perhaps largely illusory) targets are set The success of such programmes also rests significantly on the ability of the administration to take ownership of lead and maintain the momentum of these efforts India is waiting to reap its demographic dividend but this will turn into a liability if we continue to be plagued by chronic low learning levels in the primary years On the other hand India is in the enviable position of having a home-grown tested simple and inexpensive solution to address this problem The new government has announced programmes to focus on the early grades — Class I and II This is important But equally important are the children who have moved into higher grades and do not yet have the basics Census figures suggest that today we have somewhere close to 80 million children in Classes III to V What is now required is the political will to acknowledge that these children too need immediate and urgent learning support; the education system must move fast to set clearly articulated and achievable learning goals and commit to reach them The right to education should not just be the right to sit in a proper classroom in a school duly equipped with a storage room while a well-paid teacher muddles through a baffling curriculum Banerji
