NCERT committee brings forth recommendations to implement RTE

NCERT committee brings forth recommendations to implement RTE

// <![CDATA[// // <![CDATA[// // <![CDATA[//
New Delhi: If the proposal of a National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT) appointed committee comes into play then you will soon find road marshals drawn from National Cadet Cops (NCC) and National Service Scheme (NSS) on roads holding hands of your tiny tots helping them to cross the roads to and from the schools.

This is not all; they would also be responsible for arranging birth certificates for all children in schools and an incentive for children who identify school drop-outs.

The committee recommends developing a framework to implement the Right To Education (RTE) Act in Delhi so as to oversee its functioning.

Asking to waive off stamp duty on affidavits related to the date of birth of the child during school admissions to the Delhi government is another such recommendation. Upon which the Delhi government adds that thecommittee should themselves authorize the school authorities to attest the affidavit.

Talking about managing school education, the committee said that as of now, various bodies like Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) and Delhi government manage it, which should be now unified under one banner.

The committee head, Mr. Ashok Aggarwal, a lawyer-activist, said that, the proposed body should consider overhauling all proposed academic changes like textbooks, pattern of evaluation, medium of instruction and it should be even taken into consideration for any decision taken to shut down a school.

It has also kept in mind the most disputed matter of recent times – teacher’s salaries. The Human Resource Development (HRD) minister, Kapil Sibal may have although denied any interference of government in the matter related to teacher’s salaries at par with their government counterparts, but thecommittee has recommended protection of state salaries for teachers in private schools recognised under the RTE Act.

However, it is only in exceptional cases that grant-in-aid to pay their salaries could be considered, said the committee.

In order to check the school drop out rate among children, it proposes to provide incentives of about Rs.50 to children who help in identifying those who are not attending or enrolled in the school for some reasons.

Ensuring safety and security, especially of girl students, it proposes to establish police beats with women police constables at schools.

All state and state recognised schools in Delhi should have a unified website where they can declare results of children along with remarks and reports of their progress in the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system.

Bringing forth the wings of change in the recruitment process as well, the committee intends to rule out the conventional appointment of the head of schools by seniority alone.

It recommends that 75% of school principals should be selected through direct recruitment and only 25% through limited departmental examination.
