According to an official spokesperson, the state government has increased basic facilities for students in 1.39 lakh primary schools which now have smart classrooms, playgrounds, toilets, drinking water and libraries. The Yogi government of the state has combined the traditional teaching method with technology based education through computers and projectors to improve the level of education and encourage students from poor backgrounds in different districts.
All the classes have been converted into ‘smart classes’ and equipped with modern facilities which have also increased the acceptance and understanding of the students.
The spokesperson said the state government is providing free books, bags, stationery, sweaters, shoes and socks to primary school children so that they are not deprived of their right to education due to financial constraints.
Due to the continuous efforts of the Department of Primary Education in improving the quality of education, even during the ongoing epidemic, more than 1,27,068 students have been admitted to council schools in the current session.
According to the Department of Primary Education, the number of students in council schools in the 2020-21 session was 1,83,72,932 while the number of students in the current session has increased to more than 1.85 crore.
The Uttar Pradesh government has launched the Prerna Sarathi campaign to promote online education.
In it, the mission identifies a teacher, a citizen, a student, a parent or any other relative in the vicinity of his school or village as ‘Sarna Sarathi’ under Mission Perrana and then works with Perrana Sarathi teachers to make the parent aware of online education in the village and surrounding area.
Compared to last year, where only 25 to 30 percent of children were taking classes online, this year more than 50 percent of students from every school in the state are studying online. Teachers are sending homework and educational videos to the children by connecting them to the e-school to ensure regular reading.
In this session, the work of providing books to the students is being done at a fast pace so that their studies are not disrupted. Even though the school is closed, the students are being paid for their mid-day meal on time.
