The teaching methodology for imparting quality modern education to girls from uneducated and low income families has to be different, handled by fully motivated and passionate teaching staff. The dictum, if a student has failed to learn, the teacher has failed to teach. And teachers can’t be replaced with technology.
The basic flaw appears to be that teacher continues to be hired on the basis of experience rather than ability and motivation. One must look for right person for the right job. If a teacher cannot teach students by fully involving them to learn them the teacher has learnt nothing.
The in-depth studies and evaluation being regularly carried out internationally reiterates that teacher effort is a primary factor in determining better training outcomes in grooming and educating tender minds. What is needed is revamp of teaching methodology and visionary grooming of pupils targeting primary level education by enhancing learning skills with a solid base in literacy, numeracy and reading ability through creativity.
Fully devoted and professionally competent teachers must always focus that, in a race of excellence for knowledge there is “NO FINISH LINE”.

PARENTS TEACHER MEETING- SOCIO EDUCATIONAL PARAMETTERS
PTM has been transformed practically like a joint venture. The educational triangle illustrates School and Parents are holding the base and student being at the apex. It has been experienced that unless mother is galvanized in the grooming nexus, the desired focus on student’s study at home cannot gain momentum. The parents teacher meeting is held the same day in two stages:
Centralized lecture and counseling of the mother/ parents by the Principal/ Administrator, highlighting the overall teaching, learning environments and problem areas. Special emphasis is laid on completion of home assignments. This process has proved to be highly productive as all the parents particularly, mothers feel elevated which builds up their stature and adds to the empowerment in the family.
In second stage parents have discussion and interaction with class teacher where two more teachers also join in to share their own observations also. As students overall performance and personality development is given maximum weightage, therefore, mothers are encouraged to attend the meetings which also psychologically and socially elevates their pride and respect in the society.
