Significant Progress in Field Of Education: CG Government
- CG government has questioned the findings of NAS of school education.
- Despite the pandemic, state government has made a significant progress.
- 200 schools that were closed by Maoists have been reopened.
Raipur: Chhattisgarh Government on Monday claimed that the State has made significant progress in the field of education in the last three years despite adverse conditions created by Covid pandemic, days after the National Achievement Survey (NAS)-2021 report was released.
According to the State Government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had praised Virendra Bhagat, a teacher of Jashpur district of Chhattisgarh in his “Mann Ki Baat” programme. From time to time, NITI Aayog has appreciated the excellent work being done in education in the districts of Sukma, Dantewada, Jashpur etc.
In Bijapur and Sukma districts, about 200 schools which were closed by the Maoists in the past have been reopened with the special efforts of the State Government. More than 25 lakh students and more than 2 lakh teachers are registered on Chhattisgarh’s online education portal ‘Padhai Tuhar Duar’ and are receiving continuous education, said the State Government.
It is worth mentioning that the educationists have put question marks on the report of the National Achievement Survey recently released by the Department of School Education, Central Government. The survey was conducted at a time when schools were closed for more than two years due to the Corona pandemic.
There is a huge difference between the figures of NAS and UDISE. For example, according to the NAS, only 51 percent of the schools in Chhattisgarh have a library, while according to UDISE, 96.98 percent of the schools have a library. This survey of the Central Government, done at the wrong time, appears to be a survey full of wrong data.
