By TOG News Service
Jul 17, 2017

TOG News Service, New Delhi, July 17, 2017: The Minister of State Human Resource Development (HRD), Mr. Upendra Kushwaha today in a written reply to a Lok Sabha question informed that the Government of India is currently implementing the Centrally Sponsored Schemes of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) and Mid-Day Meal (MDM) for the universalization of elementary education and the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) programme for the universalization of secondary education.

In order to focus on quality education, the Central Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Rules have been amended on February 20, 2017 to include reference on class-wise, subject-wise Learning Outcomes.

Further, for improving the quality of school education, the School Standards & Evaluation framework, known as ‘Shaala Siddhi' has been launched by NUEPA, to enable schools to evaluate their performance in a more focused and strategic manner and to facilitate them to make professional judgments for improvement. 

Under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), the State Governments and UT Administrations are supported on several interventions to improve teaching standards, including regular in-service teachers' training, induction training for newly recruited teachers, training of all untrained teachers to acquire professional qualifications through Open Distance Learning (ODL) mode, recruitment of additional teachers for improving pupil-teacher ratios, academic support for teachers through block and cluster resource centres,  continuous and comprehensive evaluation system to equip the teacher to measure pupil performance and provide remedial action wherever required, and teacher and school grants for development of appropriate teaching-learning materials.

Additionally, the Central Government, supports States and UTs on early grade reading, writing & comprehension, and early Mathematics programmes through a sub-programme of SSA namely ‘Padhe Bharat Badhe Bharat' (PBBB) in classes I and II.
