New systems to minimize mishaps with students

In order to track the performance and dropout rates among candidates, the Human Resource Ministry (HRD) ministry will soon be forming a child tracking system for over 200 million children across the nation.

 

According to recent tweets by Smriti Irani said, “Apart from introducing the child tracking system, the ministry will focus on improving the concept of bridge school that was earlier discontinued due to Right to Education”.

 

To let public aware about the new systems she has made some latest announcements,

*Smrti Irani said that the ministry would be tracking the online progress of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) that was earlier introduced for ensuring universal elementary education in India

 

*Also, she added, "We did mid-term review online. This year we shall track SSA daily online. Real time data will help engage productively with states."

 

*Further, Irani announced they are planning to develop a expenditure portal for centralising the school education data and a portal for Teacher Education Institutes in order to make grading in examination transparent

 

*Also, the National Assessment Survey (NAS) that was previously done once in three years would now be done every year 

 

Meanwhile, Smriti Irani said “the HRD ministry is also helping states who are lacking behind in education by helping them in developing composite schools by rationalizing stand-alone schools that consists of only one teacher”.

 

"Smaller schools are either mentored by larger schools in same geographical area or are merged in the interest of students," she tweeted.

 

The minister also informed about a "Learning outcome portal being designed by NCERT which will have videos so that outcomes are easily comprehended n tests voluntarily taken."

 

While concluding, she added, "Under Shaala Siddhi school evaluation was undertaken since November 2015. This year we shall extend it to all schools across the country."
