Amravati witnessed nearly 800% hike in attendance
Students in Maharashtra seem relieved to be able to return to school, if the massive spike in attendance is to be believed.
Almost 5 lakh students attended schools in the district since they reopened on November 23, making it an increase of 65%. Numbers are expected to go higher since the figures from a few districts are yet to be updated in the state-level data base.
The education department officials have maintained that the attendance will increase steadily as parents gain the confidence to send their children to the schools.
Amravati witnessed almost an 800% increase in attendance. Tejrao Kale, the deputy director of education, Amravati Division, said the rise in attendance is because of effective coordination with teachers, principals and parents.
Wardha district also witnessed an increase in attendance by almost 500%. Collector Vivek Bhimanwar has stated that the people will work with the government when taken into confidence and the department has taken suggestions from teachers, parents and resolved their concerns.
In the Wardha district, the education department has taken on a hybrid teaching model where physical classes are being held only for maths and science whereas classes for the other subjects are conducted online or in-class just once a week.
Gadchiroli recorded a 98.3% attendance after the reopening of schools, which was the highest in the State. Gadchiroli has also seen a 140% increase when compared from November 23 to December 3, 2020.
