Bangalore: The pathetic and abysmal condition of Urdu schools in the State is well known. Lack of infrastructure, incompetent and careless teachers, and the resultant awfully low standard of teaching are what define them.
As a result, students of Urdu schools are known for their weakness in relatively difficult subjects such as science, mathematics, and English.
In order to bring in a change in the status of Urdu schools and make the students competitive, the Karnataka State Minorities Welfare Commission has proposed to set up remedial teaching centres in villages with at least 20 students and towns/cities with not less than 40 students.
While such centres have started functioning at many places, the scheme is yet to be implemented in many districts. For details, contact the concerned Block Education Officers (BEOs).
