The J & K administration is trying to bring new innovations and schemes for the students and teachers so that they are at par with the other people in the field of education.
Recently the Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir reviewed implementation of Samagra Shiksha.
He urged the department to build capacities towards 100% coverage under virtual/online learning and said that for better results in the schools and in the field of education the government should try to lay its emphasis on building capacities of teachers for better results.
He recently chaired a meeting to review the implementation of the centrally sponsored scheme, Samagra Shikshain Jammu and Kashmir.
Education department has recently said that although educational indicators in J&K have shown improvement over the past two years, there is still considerable ground to cover to come up to the national benchmarks.
Gross enrolment ratio in the primary and upper primary levels have increased from 79.93 and 68.06 in the year 2019-20 to 93.16 and 72.77 respectively in the year 2020-21.
While reviewing the educational indicators in J&K, he observed that there is a very significant drop in the gross enrolment ratio and net enrolment ratio from primary to upper primary level.
Every fifth student seems to be dropping out at the time of moving from primary to upper primary school. This calls for a concerted action from the department to arrest this trend was the summary of the review meeting held by the Chief Secretary showing his concern for the dropout rate.
