The state Education Secretary, Krishan Kumar, visited government schools here on Tuesday to inspect the ongoing extra classes and activities being held under the Mission Cent Percent.

He exhorted them to ensure that the students of the government schools are prepared well to face the challenges of present era of globalisation and that they score good marks in the ensuing board exams.

Instead, the proper analysis of the available data should be ensured so that we can identify the grey areas in infrastructural facilities, BALA work, enrollment, subject and class wise progress of students, implementation of e-content, so that the resources, energy and innovations could be focused in right direction”, he said.
While emphasising on the Mission Cent Percent and going through PowerPoint presentations presented by school heads, Education Secretary said the strategies highlighted in the presentations would not only help district officials play a proactive role in achieving the desired results, but hone up their skills to prepare a vision for improvement in school education.
