Chandigarh, 22 November

The state government has set a target of making Haryana a zero drop-out state. For this, Chief Minister Manohar Lal has instructed all the District Basic Education Officers to track the children aged 6 to 18 years registered in the PPP data. Its purpose is to educate those children who are not enrolled in any government or private school, gurukul, madrasa or kadam school (special training center). The CM was presiding over a meeting with the District Basic Education Officers (DEEOs) here on Wednesday.

He said, है बाचा सकुली शिक्षा गर्नुकारे है, यह शारकार का है है. Children become good citizens and contribute to nation building. For this the ratio of children and teachers should be correct. Along with the education of the children, the government is concerned about them in every way so that their foundation becomes strong. So children should not have any difficulty in getting to school, the government has planned for this.

Transport facilities will be provided by the government to the children to come and go to schools located more than 1 km away from the village. For this one teacher in each school will be designated as School Transport Officer. Their role will be to coordinate with such children who need transportation facility. A School Transport Officer (STO) will also be nominated at the block level, who will co-ordinate with the STOs of the schools located in the block to ensure transport facilities. The CM directed the DEEO to continuously update the data of all students on the MIS portal.

The DEEO said that there are about 3,000 children from families who have come here in search of work from other states or who work in brick-kilns etc. businesses who have not had Aadhaar cards. Due to this their data cannot be updated on MIS. No documentation of his birth date is available. Neither their parents have the documents available to make an Aadhaar card. Taking notice of this, the CM gave great relief to such children and said that Aadhaar card will be made for the children of such immigrant families who have enrolled in state schools. For this, the parents will only have to provide a notarized affidavit of the child’s date of birth to the DEEO. This will be counter signed by the Head Teacher. This document will be submitted to the Additional District Deputy Commissioner and Aadhaar card can be generated.

Additional Chief Secretary of School Education Department Sudhir Rajpal, Additional Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Dr. Amit Agarwal, Secretary of Secondary Education and School Education Department Ashima Barad, Director of Fundamental Education Rippudman Singh Dhillon and other officials were present in the meeting.

Children’s foundation is strong in line with the National Education Policy

The Chief Minister said that in accordance with the National Education Policy-2020, the government has converted 4 thousand Anganwadis into kindergartens to strengthen the foundation of children from childhood. Here children are being taught through games. Now the plan of the state government is that the kindergartens located in the school premises will be the responsibility of the school so that the children can get better education.
