The walls of Triyani Mandal village in Telanaga have been turned into textbooks. Sub-Inspector Rama Rao, who is from a remote area, came up with the idea of painting the roadside walls with the help of study material and arranging classes for students who do not have access to classes online.
There is low connectivity in tribal areas which hinders learning online learning for children living in these areas. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, schools in the region have closed and classes are being conducted online.
As part of the initiative, senior students are engaged in teaching younger students by turning the walls into blackboards. For this, SIA chose the main route and started encouraging students to learn through wall writing.
Rao enlisted the help of village chiefs or patwaris and local elders. The idea is currently being implemented in tribal areas or remote areas including Mangi, Kolamguda, Hostelguda, Rompelli, Mesramguda, Pangidimadhara, Mond Ndiguda, Thalandi and others.
The plan is to ensure classes and education for students in remote areas away from remote online classes due to connectivity issues and the availability of smart devices, including smartphones or laptops, the police official said.
Rao claims that classes are held from morning till evening. The purpose of these classes is to ensure that students do not forget the alphabet, numbers and basics during the lockdown, he added.
