Now CM and MLAs to inspect LP schools!
By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, Oct 21: Assam is set to make Gu Utsav, a Gujarat model for ascertaining the level of knowledge acquired by the pupils of LP schools, a reality from April next year.
In this model, apart from top education officers, chief ministers and MLAs are on the job to ascertain the level of knowledge acquired by LP school students. This model is going to be implemented in the State from April 3, 4 and 5 next year as the first phase.
Assam has around 12,000 LP schools. In order to ascertain the standard of education of the pupils, the Chief Minister and MLAs will visit the schools and ask the pupils questions on various subjects. The legislators of the State will be divided into a number of teams for visiting schools. If the pupils of a school are found to be lagging behind in certain subjects or in all subjects, the inspecting teams will ascertain the reason behind the pupils lagging behind in studies. The reasons may be lack of teachers for a particular subject or some subjects, lack of teaching aids, etc. The teams of legislators will submit their reports stating the lacue, if any, in the schools so as to let the government rectify or fulfil them in Sarba Siksha Abhiyan (SSA).
After plugging the holes, the teams of legislators will visit the schools again in the year next. They will compare the level of knowledge acquired by the pupils in the two successive years. If there is any change for the better, it is well and good. However, if there are no positive changes even after addressing the problems of the schools, the government will take necessary action.
