After the poor results in the mid-term examinations held in September, officials for the Directorate of Education (DoE) will attend classes to identify gaps in teaching in the Delhi Government schools.
Only 30% of students in class X and 50% of students in class XII managed to pass in the September examinations. Thirty-two schools recorded zero pass percentage in classes IX-XII.
“In a coordination meeting, it was recommended that the district and zonal deputy directors of education attend those classes which have recorded poor performances in their jurisdiction on a priority basis, with an aim of identifying if the teaching there is poor or not up to standard. If deficiency is found, they can recommend the hiring of additional resource persons using the School Management Committee (SMC) fund,” Sanjay Goel, Director of Education. remarked.
Schools can also hire additional resource persons for 20 hours using the SMC fund i.e. Rs 5 lakh for schools with 1,500 students, Rs 6 lakh for those with 2,500 students and Rs 7 lakh for those with over 2,500 students.
Additionally, Manish Sisodia, Delhi’s Education Minister, commenced interactions with the heads of 1,000-plus Delhi government schools, in groups of 50. He also said that the government might increase the SMC fund if they get “good feedback about proper utilisation”.
“Till now, the heads of schools were dependent on the DoE for everything… You can now hire teachers for 200 hours, engage gardeners. Depending on the need for cleanliness and other sanitation issues, you can also hire additional labour. You can also innovate by getting resource persons or experts for different subjects and co-curricular activities. I also suggest that in case you feel that students of classes IX and X are facing difficulties in a particular subject or topic, you can get experts to help the students using this fund,” Sisodia instructed the principals.
