TINSUKIA, Jan 11: Due to indifferent attitude of tea garden magement, the Gunotsav results in Tinsukia district had been badly affected, recording three per cent decrease in A+ while Sadiya and Tinsukia block performed better due to absence of tea garden maged schools (TGMS) in these blocks, said Amir Hussain DEEO-cum- District Mission Coorditor SSA Tinsukia at a press meet.
Though Sibsagar district claimed to have secured top position in second phase but it was Tinsukia district with 18 per cent A+ grade higher than Sibsagar-Charaideo put together, informed Hussain while quoting R C Jain, Commissioner and Secretary Education, who maintained that even as Charaideo was carved out of Sibsagar district, the former did not function independently and evaluation was done under Sibsagar, Hussain quoted as Jain saying in a public meeting in Tinsukia recently.
In Tinsukia district, a total of 1,445 schools had been evaluated during second phase held from October 10-October 13. Elaborating the results, Hussain pointed out that out of 1,445 schools, 264 (18 per cent) schools secured A+ , 549 (38 per cent) schools secured A grade, 381(26 per cent) secured B grade, 185(13 per cent) C grade and 66 (5 per cent) secured D grade while Sadiya topped the list with 26 per cent A+ followed by Tinsukia urban, Kakopathar, Margherita and Hapjan blocks.
The results revealed that performance of newly provincialized schools (post-2017) numbering 176, failed to show any remarkable improvement and trailed to the bottom with highest percentage of C and D grade holders (24 per cent).
Of 122 TGM schools run by multitiol tea companies, the lone school that secured A+grade is being run by Apeejay Surendra Group. While Hokonguri TE LPS bagged A+ , Hokonguri TE Apeejay LP secured A grade. Both the schools are located in Hatijan under Hapjan block.
Hussain informed that the process of amalgamation had already started and the schools which performed poorly would be given sufficient opportunity to improve academically that carried 60 per cent of total evaluation, before action being initiated against erring teachers. Ashok Kumar Gogoi, district coorditor, Bibhu Hazarika, programme officer, Romen Boraik, and Swimy Hatibaruah were present.
