Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath on Friday said that the Notun Disha scheme which was introduced by the state government with an objective to strengthen the base of students is a success in elementary education.
In this context, Nath informed that according to the National Achievement Survey in 2017 it was observed that up to Class- VIII the base of 59 percent of students in Science, 62 percent of students in Mathematics, and 62 percent of students in SST was very poor. Similarly, the Annual Status Education Report of Pratham Foundation, a voluntary organization, showed that most of the students of Class III to VIII were unable to read their books and they were not able to do addition.
Nath added that looking at the data, the new state government had carried out a massive survey among the students across the state in February, last year. The survey report revealed that 69 percent of students of Class III and V and 43 percent of students of Class VI to VIII were not fit for such classes.
