“The course has changed my perspective about schools, learners and education. Now I realize teaching is not that simplistic as I thought it to be. Now I know that a teacher not just make her learners read and write, but she makes them acquire knowledge and various concepts keeping in mind their diverse social, cultural contexts, their cognitive levels as well as their linguistic profiles.” — Shilpa Khasa
