Tennessee Democrats unveiled their proposal Thursday to increase funding for public education across the state as well as connect students with vital support services. The slate of education bills would boost the state's share of teacher salaries, tackle class sizes and add more counselors, social workers and school nurses in every school district. The eight-bill legislative package would also tackle how the state funds education by increasing funding to the Basic Education Program funding formula. RELATED: In whirlwind special session, Tennessee lawmakers approve $160M package of education bills aimed at learning loss, literacy Some Democrats have criticized legislation passed during last month's special legislative session focused on education. Gov. Bill Lee called the special session to address the state's dismal literacy rates and other academic issues. The legislature eventually passed a $160-million package aimed at tackling student learning loss during the pandemic, the state's stagnant literacy rates and how schools will handle standardized testing after a year of academic disruptions. Lee also proposed a $341.6 million increase to K-12 education spending, including $70.5 million "to fully fund the state's Basic Education Plan formula" in his State of the State address on Feb. 8 . But Democrats say the way the state currently funds schools is not enough. "We have a K-12 funding system that basically funds K-9 and leaves three grades entirely on the local communities," Senate Minority Leader Jeff Yarbro, D-Nashville, said during a news briefing Thursday, referencing the provision of the BEP that funds teacher salaries at only 70%, before taking subtle aim at the Republican governor. "So when people make the statement each year that they are fully funding the BEP, it's really a hollow and empty statement. You are making a minimum payment on the credit card and you are falling further and further behind." Democrats unveiled eight specific bills Thursday while the legislature was shut down for the week due to the winter storms that have left Nashville and much of Tennessee covered in snow, sleet and ice. The most dramatic bill, SB808 , calls for comprehensive BEP reform. If enacted, the legislation introduced by Yarbro would enact the "Adequate Funding Program for Education" program and revise the current method of funding for public education through the BEP — something several Republican members of the Senate Education Committee said during the special session they were unwilling to do. Other bills, many introduced by Sen. Heidi Campbell, D-Nashville, with a variety of House Democrats sponsoring accompanying legislation, would tackle the social and emotional needs of students, especially following the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. SB378 would require the BEP to fund a full-time school nurse per 750 students, an increase from the one nurse to 3,000 students the formula currently provides for, and SB371 would increase the number of school counselors funded by the BEP, pushing the state closer to the American School Counselor Association's national recommendation of one counselor per 250 students. SB1100 introduced by Sen. Katrina Robinson, D-Memphis, would increase the number of school social workers funded by the BEP. RELATED: Why Nashville schools are working to ensure a nurse is in every school in the midst of the pandemic "School nurses are also incredibly critical and we need one in every school," Robinson said during Thursday's briefing. "We know that the reason kids are struggling with their academics and they are struggling with their reading at a young age is because they don't have the support services that they need to meet their needs. Our kids are going to do better as long as they have all of those support services." Other proposed legislation includes increasing the state's share of funding for instructional positions like teachers from 70 to 75 percent, reducing class sizes in high-needs elementary schools, increasing the number of intervention specialists in schools and directing the Tennessee Department of Education to provide school districts with supplemental funding for special education. Rep. Yusuf Hakeem, D-Chattanooga, said the common thread throughout the proposed legislation is "the broken BEP system." "It gives me great pause when I think about the fact that we've lowered some business taxes and we've lowered some inheritance taxes and yet the basics for our children to move forward ... we are not making that investment as we should," he said Thursday. "The system we have in place now has reached its capacity." Tennessee has enough money to invest more in education, Rep. Torrey Harris, D-Memphis, said. Lee and other GOP lawmakers sparked debate and faced criticism from Democrats for proposing to add more to the state's rainy day fund, pushing it to an unprecedented $1.5 billion . "Our state is not struggling financially," Harris said.https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/education/2021/02/18/tennessee-democrats-propose-overhaul-state-public-education-funding/4490928001/

In some parts of the country water supplies are dangerously low due to drought and depletion therefore may induce thirst and greater water intake.
lt is also an opportunity for all stakeholders to contribute to the cause by taking up activities to promote the concept. The theme of this year National Road Safety Week 2021 is, “Sadak Suraksha- Jeevan Raksha”, and locally the Department of Police with participation of colleges, social organizations had launched the 32nd National Road Safety Week which was flagged off by Mangaluru Police Commissioner N Shashi Kumar on Wednesday 20 January 2021 from the police commissioner’s office premises. This year the Awareness week has been extended,which will end on 17 February 2021. So as part of this ‘Sadak Suraksha- Jeevan Raksha’, City Traffic Police & JCI continue Mangalore Disha, JCI Mangalore Lalbagh and Lions Club Ashoknagar held ‘Road Safety Awareness Walk’ on Tuesday, 16 February 2021, which was flagged off by Chief Guest JCI Sen Soujanya Hegde (Zone President, Zone XV JCI India) along with Guest of Honour M N Nataraj ( Assistant Commissioner of Police-Traffic) at 8.30 am near Jyothi Circle,which proceeded through Hampankatta, Clock Tower and culminated at Samudaya Bhavan/Town Hall,Mangaluru.

Seen in photo L-R : Dombayya Sadanand, Ashraf, and Manikatta Addressing the audience ACP, M N Nataraj said, ““The aim of this Road Safety Week is to bring awareness to traffic rules that need to be followed by the public. There is a rise in traffic accidents deaths when compared to deaths from other crimes. Motorists are not serious while driving or riding, either they are talking on a mobile phone, not wearing seat-belts, not wearing a helmet, triple ride on a two-wheeler etc. Imposing fines by police on violators is not for revenue, instead to regulate traffic violations. You students should be very careful while driving or riding and even while crossing the road and watch for traffic, and not get distracted using mobile phones. While the City boasts about being an education hub, students should strictly follow traffic rules and create awareness among the public.” “It’s sad to note that many lives are lost due to accidents, and it is mainly due to carelessness, negligence and motorists not adhering to traffic rules and regulations. While the pandemic is on, people take all kinds of precautions like wearing masks, using sanitizers, following social distance etc, but when while driving or riding they don’t take precautions like not wearing helmet, not using seat belt etc etc. People should know following traffic rules is for their benefit, and therefore I urge everyone to follow traffic rules and regulations not just during this project, but always for your safety” added ACP Nataraj. Also speaking on the occasion, Jc Sen Soujanya Hegde said, “We feel happy to host this event with the traffic police who are there to guide and protect us on the roads, while driving or riding our vehicles.
