Berhampur, July 3 (LocalWire): Ganjam Collector Vijay Amruta Kulange observed that the much-talked-about joyful learning was missing in several schools in Ganjam during his visit to an Upper Primary school at Nandika, in Hinjili block in the district recently.
During his visit to the school on 29 June, he observed that the teacher was teaching without planning and without use of teaching-learning materials (TLM) like black-board, map, colour chalks, lack of time-table or year plan.
‘The classroom looks dull while there was no interaction in class. The classrooms were not clean and the concept of Swatchh Vidyalaya was missing in the school,’ said the district education officer (DEO) Ganjam, Sanatan Panda.
The DEO communicated the observations of the Collector to the block education officer (BEO) of the district.
Kulange also found that there was no bench in the school. The school authorities did not heed the district administration’s ‘Tale Basibaku Na’ (no sitting on the floor) to ensure that dual benches are used by the schools by collecting donations from different organisations and individuals.
While several classrooms lacked tube-lights, there was no mirror, comb and nail-cutter for the use of students.
Special attention was not given by the teacher to improve the handwriting of the children.
The box library in the classroom (the books contained in a box to use by the students), initiated by the district administration to develop reading habit of students was missing.
‘During my visit to the schools, I have also made the same observations in some schools,’
said the DEO.
He urged the BEOs to improve and compliance collected from each school through CRCC.
The consolidated compliance of the block level should be submitted on 8 July, which will be discussed during the next review meeting of the Collector, he said.
