AGARTALA: The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is all set to adopt 108 schools of Dhalai district from the next academic year and a detail survey has started in this regard from Tuesday.
District Education Officer Rabindra Durai and the Officer on Special Duty Sufal Sukla Baidya told the reports that the NCERT is adopting these schools of the State’s most backward district -- Dhalai -- with an aim to provide quality education.
As per the programme, the NCERT will provide assistance for infrastructural development of the schools and necessary training to the teachers. Schools falling under the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) and outside it will be surveyed for the purpose.
The officials said that as Dhalai is the most backward district in the State in education and other aspects so the Central government has selected this district for ensuring quality education. They are very much confident that with the adoption of these 108 schools by the NCERT, the overall educational environment of the district will improve.
Meanwhile, as per a State government’s decision, eight schools of the district in which total enrollment was less than 10 were going to be closed. The 67 students studying in those schools will be accommodated in the nearby educational institutions.
