Karnataka's bid to achieve 80 pc literacy

Our Bureau

BANGALORE: The Karnataka Government plans to achieve a literacy rate of 80 per cent by the year 2005 and increase it by five per cent two years later.

Efforts have been taken to give an impetus towards this by trying to bring school dropouts and giving primacy to primary education.

The Government has already succeeded in bringing more than two lakh students back into the mainstream schools through mid-day meals and improving educational facilities in the districts. More than six lakh children in the age group six to 14 years were out of school net in the State.
