Chunauti 2018 Circular for Students of Class 6th to 9th
Chunauti 2018 Circular: To improvise education standard and curb dropout ratio in government schools, Delhi Government has announced and ambitious ‘Chunauti 2018’ scheme in the state. The scheme has been launched in late June 2018 which applies to students of class 6th to 9th.
An assessment of the students carried out in government school indicates that 74% of class 6th students couldn’t read a paragraph from their Hindi text book and 46% of the students can’t read a story from class 2 book. Many of them couldn’t solve simple mathematics problems too. The situation is no different in other classes too.
Objectives of the Scheme
- Delhi has a higher student dropout ratio in comparison to many other states. Delhi government school also lacks infrastructure and many students don’t even get access to books. To bring about changes in the education standard of government schools, the ‘Chunauti 2018’ scheme has been launched.
- It also aims that all students in the state get educated.
- It focuses on minimizing dropout of students. It wants to help students who have failed twice or more in Class IX to pass the 10th exam. For that, they are provided with the option of appearing for Class X exams through the
- Modified Patrachar Scheme of Examinations (MPSE).
Features of the Scheme
- The scheme is for students from class 6 to class 9.
- It focuses on subjects English, Hindi and Mathematics.
- It is applicable to all the government schools of Delhi
Implementation of the Scheme
- The students from these classes are divided into groups. ‘Pratibha’ group include bright students who can read, write and solve mathematics problems. ‘Nishtha’ group comprises of students who find it difficult to read, write or solve mathematic problems. In class 9, there is another group named ‘Vishwas’ group is made of those students who have failed twice in the class and are dropouts.
- For implementing the scheme, some autonomy has been given to school principals. Some of the schools made the students of the different group sit in the different class, whereas some of the schools made them sit in the same class in different groups.
- To meet the goal, a workshop was arranged with a group of 200 mentor teachers who trained 24,000 teachers and prepared learning materials for teaching students in a lively manner. They will also provide support and guidelines to teachers and the Head of the School in this mission.
- Pragati-I books have been provided as supplementary material to help students of Nishtha groups to understand syllabus of their class. It contains one page of text for explaining a lesson.
- There are some issues that need to be addressed. Division of students in class sometimes leads to inferiority complexity issues. Many government schools don’t have proper infrastructure. Students don’t even have access to books. The scheme needs to be implemented well. The scheme, if implemented properly, can help improve education standard in students of the Delhi state.
