Dalit student thrashed by school teacher for touching mid-day meal utensils in Rajasthan

Dalit student thrashed in Rajasthan

On October 1, a 10-year-old Dalit student of a government school in Osian tehsil in Jodhpur district was allegedly thrashed by his teacher for touching utensil when the mid-day meal was being served inside the school premises.

Dinesh Meghwa is a Class four student at the government secondary school in Osian tehsil, 50 km from Jodhpur. He sustained minor injuries due to the incident and was taken to the Ummed hospital in Jodhpur on October 2.

It was also revealed that separate plates were kept for Dalit students and those belonging to a higher caste, Jats. Malaram, father of the Dalit student, was also allegedly beaten up when he came to pick up his son from school.

A complaint has been filed against the teacher but police is yet to take any action against him. On October 3, Nisha Siddu, a child activist from Jaipur expressed concern over the incident of discrimination that happened in a state-run institution, regarding the government-funded mid-day meal scheme, which provides free lunch to school children.

Although, India banned caste-based discrimination in 1955, its 170 million Dalits continue to face prejudice in every sector from education to employment, because of their traditional occupations such as street sweeping and grave digging.

Few takers for Hindi in DU, teachers petition HRD to make it compulsory

Hindi as a subject in Delhi UniversityTaking notice of the decreasing number of students opting for Hindi in Delhi University, a section of teachers have petitioned the HRD ministry to make the language compulsory again.

Ravi Sharma, an Assistant Professor of the language at Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), has floated the petition, and it has been signed by over 100 teachers and has also been sent to the Prime Minister’s Office as well as to President Pranab Mukherjee, who is also the Visitor of the university.

Earlier, studying the subject was compulsory in DU colleges in form of either a credit course or a qualifying course, but now the students have an option of not pursuing it after the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) was rolled out this session. The CBCS implementation has offered students a choice between Modern Indian Languages (MIL), which include Hindi and English, as part of the Ability Enhancement Course (AEC).

As per the UGC structure, AEC now has two subjects- Environmental Science and MIL/English. “It is not surprising that not a single first-year student has enrolled for Hindi classes at SRCC. The earlier system had Hindi as a compulsory subject.

“Students of B.A. (Prog.) studied Hindi for three years, while those enrolled in honours programmes in Commerce and Humanities studied the language for at least one year,” Sharma said. A few takers for the subject has also led to less work and reduced requirement of Hindi teachers.

Pragya, a Hindi professor at Kirori Mal College said, “On one hand government observes Hindi week and on the other hand such is the condition in even prestigious colleges of the country. Hindi, which is our national language, will extinguish this way because soon absolutely no one will be opting for it.”

Another teacher at the college and an Academic Council (AC) member Lata said, “Students have always shown little interest in Hindi. But, the situation has gone worse since choice is now in the hands of students. This has resulted in many colleges saying goodbye to their Hindi teachers.”

The diminishing workload has left ad hoc teachers worried as they feel there is a threat to their jobs. “Many of us are worried. Due to very few takers, the workload has greatly reduced. What kind of nationalist government is this, which screams about promoting indigenous languages, but then treats Hindi this way?,” said an ad-hoc teacher from an off-campus college.

An Overview of Algebra for Class 6

Most people refer to algebra as a “gatekeeper subject”. However, the question about the right time to for your child to take it still remains complex for most parents. Over the years, math results, especially in standardized tests, have caused a tempest and still the scores are not anywhere near improving. According to New York Times, between the have-nots and the haves, the performance gap still remains to be a chasm. Join Byjus classes for best coaching.

What does that imply, especially for your kid? This article, as written by Byju, suggests that it’s a parent’s responsibility to monitor their child’s academic development while politician and pundits wrangle over bigger issues. With this overview of algebra, ensure that your teen is on track more so for their Class 6 maths.

Importance of algebra and algebra problems for class 6

 Algebraic applications are in a wide use from computer scientists to architects to electricians. According to Robert Moses, the Algebra Project founder, algebra is equally important as a civil right. Having a solid foundation in basic algebra, especially algebra for class 6 sets the right pace for a learner for both high school and college excellence. It saves you the burden of having to undertake remedial math classes in college, which prolongs getting a degree and makes it more expensive. The point here is that, it’s cheaper and quite simpler to learn the algebra now than it is to relearn it in the future.

Class 6 algebra is prerequisite particularly for higher-level math including calculus, geometry and trigonometry. It is perceived that students who “do well” in algebra problems for class 6 have a higher probability of excelling in high school and college math. However, algebra does not extend up to the category of college-bound only. Moreover, high school graduates who intend to join the work force straight away need to have know-how of the math skills similar to college freshmen. Algebra has a connection to almost every high paying profession if not all and apparently it can be said to be the success gateway in this century.

 Algebra questions for class 6

 Here is a sample of algebra problems provided by Byju:

  1. Find the sum of -29 and +13?

     2. Solve: -46 + 24 × -2

  1. Subtract: -2 − -5
  1. Simplify the following:
  1. 5x + 6 + 3x
  2. -5x + 3z + -3z – 9z
  3. x6 × y5 × x-8 × y11
  4. x12 ÷ x3
  5. (5x)3
  6. (-2b)4
  1. Show the expression that states the associative property?
  1. 6 × 4 + 3 = 3 + 6 × 4 3 + 2 = 2 + 3 C. (6 × 4) × 3 = 6 × ( 4 × 3)        D. 3 + 5X
  1. What properties do the following expressions illustrate?
  1. -1 × 7 + 2 = 2 + -1 × 7
  2. 9 * 1 = 9
  3. 4 × (2 + 6) = 4 × 2 + 4 × 6
  1. Solve the following
  1. 4x – 3 > -12

    b) x ≠ 6

    c) -2 ≤ x < 5

    d) -6f < -12

  1. Convert into scientific notation: 0.0000000245
  2. However, this is not the exhaustive list but if you don’t find difficulties in answering these questions then consider yourself a successful algebra student.

NB: Algebra has its own way of nurturing an abstract reasoning technique that helps students excel in science and math.

US to provide skill training to 400 million Indians

US to provide skills training in India

In an enhancement to India’s ambitious skill development programme, the United States will collaborate with it on a number of education-related projects to help the country achieve its goal of providing the training to 400 million people in the next decade.

On September 22, the State Department said that, “We recognise that higher education and vocational training are essential to economic development and we remain committed to strengthening our exchanges of students, scholars, and technical knowledge.”

The new six-week Community College Administrator Programme, sponsored by the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, started on September 20 this year, the US said.

With the help of this programme, Indian administrators from post-secondary vocational and technical institutions and Indian officials with higher education planning responsibilities intend to complete a programme of professional development with Florida State University and Santa Fe College. The US has also announced a study tour for officials from Indian state-level skills development entities to study the US network of community colleges with the objective of developing expertise and contacts to help the state build a more effective vocational education system.

Continuing with its long-standing partnership and support for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the US Agency for International Development (USAID) has said that it intends to partner with Duke University and Research Triangle International to support the Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar.

Bringing together the expertise of US higher education institutions, USAID is advancing the goal of the January 2015 bilateral Joint Declaration of Intent on Providing Support to IITs to intensify collaborations in research and development and its engagement with industry and entrepreneurship, the State Department said.

Collaborating with the Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) programme of the Ministry of Human Resources Development, the US said its intention is to pursue the expansion of the USIEF-administered Fulbright specialist programme in 2016, to allow more American professors the opportunity to conduct training and workshops in Indian institutes of higher education and advance our shared goal of increased technical exchanges.

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have also signed a memorandum of understanding to foster Indo-US cooperation on standards and conformity assessment. The MoU would cover areas such as smart cities and infrastructure, renewable energy, water and sanitation. It will also enhance the scope of the Standards Portal that was created by both organisations in partnership with the Indian Bureau of Industrial Standards in 2007, said Joe Bhatia, president of ANSI.

Scheme for general category students likely by Gujarat govt

Reservation has been one of the major issues in India while some have always been demanding their share in it, others have been opposing it.

However, the reservation debate became hot recently when Patel community led by Hardik Patel rolled out massive support demanding reservation for them.

Amid reservation demands, Gujarat government  is likely to announce a special scheme for general category students from the economically weaker section. A senior minister in the government told PTI on condition of anonymity that Chief Minister Anandiben Patel would make the announcement during a function in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

“We are giving final shape to the scheme. The announcement will be made by the CM tomorrow afternoon at a function in Swarnim Sankul-2. Leaders of different communities, social and religious bodies and several MLAs would be present,” he said.

Ahead of the August 25 rally of Patels, the Health Minister and government’s spokesperson Nitin Patel had hinted that government was considering some soaps for general/open category students.

Under the scheme, financial assistance would be provided to all students with economically weak background who fall in the non-reservation category, including those from the Patel community. Nitin Patel had said that the state government will bear the educational expenses such as tuition and hostel fees of such students.

Employees Choose Work Culture Over Salary Hike

Employees choose work culture

While it is a major assumption that salary and work satisfaction are the factors guiding people’s career choice, a news survey highlights that good work culture has become a bigger attraction for candidates.

The survey also says that good work culture is being chosen over big salary hikes. 65 per cent of the respondents in the survey said that they would choose a company that actively promotes work culture instead of corporate culture.

The survey was conducted by JobBuzz.in, the employer rating platform which points out that people are not accepting job offers with big salary hikes if the work culture is not good.

“Today’s high-performance candidates having two or more offers in hand will only accept an employment offer if the company’s work culture and its HR practices are appealing enough to their sensibilities,” said TimesJobs.com COO Vivek Madhukar.

Interestingly, the survey has two folds- while the senior level employees chose healthy work culture to make their career choices, at junior level in hierarchy the salary still remains one of the guiding force as compared to the wok environment.

According to the survey, for bad work culture, it is the top management and HR responsible. 66 per cent of the respondents in the survey said that it is top management while 12 per cent blamed it on the boss and 11 per cent held the HR responsible for poor work culture.

The remaining other 11 peers voted peers and team coo-ordination responsible for guiding the work culture in the company.

“This survey reveals the growing importance Gen Y and Z are giving to the work atmosphere and culture of an organisation when seeking employment, thanks to wider use of employer rating platforms, more job options and social media,” Madhukar added.
