Gadwal: With an aim to provide qualitative education in government schools, the district administration of Jogulamba Gadwal has taken significant steps.
As part of this, in June, the district Education department has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and partnered with Indian Education Collective (IEC), a Non-government organisation (NGO), to impart qualitative education in four mandals of Dharur, Gattu, KT Doddi and Ija on pilot basis.
Taking part in a two-day training programme to deliberate on what kind of steps needed to impart quality education, District Collector Rajat Kumar Saini enquired with Mandal Education Officers, Head Masters and Cluster Resource persons as to what kind of results have been seen since the launch of the pilot project.
The Collector also asked them if there were any problems or issues while imparting quality education, if so all issues must be resolved by coordinating meetings among all the stake holders. Speaking on the occasion, the collector said, “Gadwal district is very backward in education and we are ready to take all necessary steps to improve it at any cost.”
While explaining the changes that have been brought since the launch of qualitative education project, the head masters of government schools in four mandals expressed satisfaction and said unlike earlier, now the students have become more interactive and asking doubts without any fear.
The students were not just getting textbook knowledge, but also understanding the concepts and discussing the topics of their interest.
The books, reading and writing material provided by the government was very much helpful in learning complex subjects in an easy way. The students were now able to understand mathematics with great ease with the help of the material provided by the government, they said.
According to the MoU signed by the Indian Education Collective and the education department, the cluster resource persons will be trained with the new teaching methodology, based on which the teachers will be trained to teach the students in a more better and interactive manner.
“If quality education is to be imparted, the teachers must be present in the schools on time. They must teach the students in such a way that they develop curiosity to read and write. We are here to provide all the necessary facilities to help in this direction.
If needed, we will also provide laptops for Cluster Resource Persons to integrate all the data and for providing e-learning, computers, projectors will also be given,” said the Collector.
For a comprehensive education policy for providing qualitative education, the Collector directed Srija, CEO of Indian Education Collective to prepare a plan so that better steps could be taken to improve quality of education in government schools.
