In an effort to increase the quality of education, Delhi Government has announced a new education reform plan which keeps a check on the number of drop-out of students and the students who are weak in academics will be the highlight of this new initiative by the government.
This initiative is named as 'Chunauti 2018'. In this initiative, each student's performance will be individually analyzed and the weak students will be given special attention so that they pass in Class 9th and 10th with good marks. "Special focus" will be given to the students from Class 6 to 9.
"It's a comprehensive Delhi to improve quality and stop dropouts after Class 9 failure in government schools," Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told reporters that, "No-detention policy is not the entire solution to improve quality education. The passing percentage of Class 9 is decreasing every year. In 2013-14, 44 per cent of students of Class 9 failed to pass while 48.26 percent of students did not succeed during 2014-15. In 2015-16, 49.22 per cent of students of Class 9 failed to pass the examinations. We will have to first focus on improving quality education under 'Chunauti 2018'. There are students who are intelligent but there are also who are weak in writing, reading and others. Under 'Chunauti 2018', we will map these students and divide them into different groups. Thereafter, the government will work on improving their skills. Due to 'No detention policy', students easily pass till class 8 but when they come to class 9, most of them fail to pass the exams," he said.
Amendments in the Right to Education have already been suggested as the proposed bill is pending approval from the Centre. This initiative will improve and enhance the academic performance of the students and the teachers will be rewarded according to the performance oh their students.
