Hopes & Fears Session May 30, 2007 Following were some critical questions/fears raised by the teachers: Why ITA is here? This school has been totally transformed by Unilever in terms of infrastructural improvements and other facilities. ITA should pay attention to underprivileged dilapidated schools located in far off rural areas. There is no need for teachers’ professional development as they are qualified and capable enough to improve and sustain quality of education. Why have they (teachers) not been trusted by Unilever? Unilever could have entrusted such responsibilities or project to any school teacher as school coordinator instead of ITA. The session ended on a positive note as an ice breaker / catharsis session.
