In a bid to achieve 85 per cent literacy in the state by 2007, Karnataka for the first time launched a programme on Thursday to involve students in the literacy campaign. Students of Class IX and I PUC will be involved in the “Each one teach two” campaign.

Ninth standard students participating in the project will be allotted 20 marks, while I PUC students will be allotted 10 marks in the final examination and the Government has issued a notification to this effect, Primary and Secondary Education Minister R Ramalinga Reddy told reporters in Bangalore. Taking a cue from President A P J Abdul Kalam’s suggestion to involve students in the literacy campaign, Mr Reddy said Karnataka has become the first state in the country to allot marks in the final examination for those participating in the literacy campaign. Government schools, aided, unaided and private schools are being involved in the campaign. Nearly 2.5 lakh Class IX and PUC students have been enrolled in the programme, Mr Reddy said.

The selected student volunteers will teach non-literate adults in the age group of 15-35 years. Each student will impart functional literacy to two non-literate adults, once a week for three months (December to February). The target is to cover 10 lakh people in two years, he said.
