Arunachal govt to implement 'Mission Shikha' to revamp education system
Arunachal chief minister Pema Khandu, on Tuesday, has approved the state government's plan to improvise and restore the education scenario in the state by completely overhauling the education system.
Directing the education department, Khandu stated that the concept of ‘Mission Shiksha’ should be implemented in a time-bound manner.
The ‘Mission Shiksa’ is a campaign that highlights the depriving education system and envisions to ‘provide good quality education to the students in an improved educational environment and uplifting the morale of teachers’.
The CM suggested identifying one school with high enrollment in each assembly constituency and completely overhauling it with technological and digital interventions.
Khandu also recommended that the entire state be divided into three zones – East, West, and Central – each assigned to an independent agency to study and layout parameters and evaluate the performance of teachers as well as students as per the central government’s performance grading index (PGI).
Notably, 'Mission Shiksha' envisages making the digital and transparent transfer and posting of teachers through a software-based system, which is currently in the making.
