After the shocking mid-term results of Delhi government schools, the Delhi government has decided to go an extra mile to ensure that everything is done to improve the performances.
Officials of Delhi’s Directorate of Education will be sitting in classes of the government schools that recorded poor performances and look for gaps in the teaching methodology.
In the mid-term examinations held in September, only 30% of students in class X and 50% of students in class XII passed. Thirty-two schools recorded zero pass percentage in classes IX-XII. The officials have added that these numbers might be wrong since many students failed due to totaling error, which is being rectified.
These shocking results pushed the DoE to take necessary steps to improve the numbers.
Talking about this initiative, Director of Education Sanjay Goel said, “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.”
