Karnataka orders survey of Arabic schools
The Karnataka government has ordered a survey of Arabic schools as they were allegedly not following the syllabus prescribed by the state education department.
The step was taken after the parents of students reportedly complained to the education department, saying that their children studying in Arabic schools were not on par with other students. “So we decided to conduct a survey of Arabic schools,” Nagesh said.
According to education department officials, there are 200 Arabic schools in Karnataka, of which 106 are aided by the government and 80 are unaided. They are all registered under the Karnataka Education Act and bound to follow rules and regulations of the Karnataka government, Nagesh said.
Global Hunger Index
The Global Hunger Index 2022 was released recently. Out of 121 countries in this list, India’s ranking is at 107
It was Jointly published by Concern Worldwide and Welt Hunger Hilfe, Non-Government Organisations from Ireland and Germany respectively.
 It is a tool for comprehensively measuring and tracking hunger at global, regional, and national levels.
The GHI is intended to raise awareness and understanding of the struggle against hunger.
It provides a way to compare levels of hunger between countries and regions.
And even call attention to those areas of the world where hunger levels are highest and where the need for additional efforts to eliminate hunger is greatest.
The reason for mapping hunger is to ensure that the world achieves “Zero Hunger by 2030”, which is one of the Sustainable Development Goals laid out by the United Nations.
Each country’s GHI score is calculated based on four indicators.
  1. Undernourishment – calculated by the share of the population with insufficient caloric intake.
  2. Child stunting – calculated by the share of children under age five who have low height for their age, reflecting chronic undernutrition.
  3. Child mortality – Calculated by the share of children who die before their fifth birthday, partly reflecting the fatal mix of inadequate nutrition and unhealthy environments
  4. Child wasting – Calculated by the share of children under age five who have low weight for their height, reflecting acute undernutrition.
The GHI score is calculated on a 100-point scale reflecting the severity of hunger, where zero is the best score (no hunger) and 100 is the worst.
India’s score of 29.1 places it in the ‘serious’ category.
India also ranks below Sri Lanka (at 64), Nepal ( at 81), Bangladesh ( at 84), and Pakistan (at 99).
Afghanistan, at 109, is the only country in South Asia that performs worse than India on the index.
China is among the countries collectively ranked between 1 and 17 having a score of less than five.
India’s rank in the Global Hunger Index has consistently worsened in the last 10 years.
