The State School Education Department has informed that initially, sessions will be conducted for ninth and tenth class students through telephone, and if the project succeeds in the coming days, this will also be done for other classes. Reportedly, more than 10,000 teachers across the state are involved in implementing this project.
Schools all over the country are closed for more than four months due to the coronavirus crisis. Private schools have already started taking online classes. But government schools did not due to the lack of infrastructure. A huge number of students were deprived of basic education in the state. Considering this, the officials of the state school education department came up with the idea of such telephonic sessions.
According to the school education department, a lot of information about the district-wide and subject-based teachers has already been obtained from the Board of Secondary Education. Final preparations for this plan have already been completed. A few days ago, the School Education Secretary, Mr Manish Jain, held several meetings with school inspectors of every district of the state and officials of the Board of Secondary Education, Syllabus Committee over discussions about this plan.
