Top SSC Schools Monitor And Support Weaker Schools

Weaker Schools Gets A Grand Support
Few researches reveal that most of the schools are still under weaker section. In order to improve the performance of schools that have scored merely 30% to 40% in the secondary school certificates (SSC) examinations, the state education department is planning to introduce a new scheme that will involve schools with a higher academic record to monitor the weaker ones.

These schools will provide them with support in the form of teaching methodology, learning skills and other guidance. The school clusters, which consists of groups of schools from a particular area, have been formed by the state government.

The state will identify schools that have less than 30-40% passing percentage in the Class 10 board exams. These schools will then be "adopted" by other schools from their cluster which have maintained a good academic record over the years. A senior educational official said "This will help bringing up the records of weaker schools and maintaining good quality education across all the schools in the state. During our school mapping exercises, we had identified such clusters and will be announcing them in the coming week".

Also, most of the schools are unable to perform well due to a shortage in well-qualified teachers and not being able to maintain the student teacher ratio as per the Right to Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009.
