Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Thursday questioned faculty principals on the poor efficiency of scholars from the state within the National Achievement Survey (NAS).

The Central authorities’s NAS is a mechanism to evaluate the well being of the varsity schooling system by comprehensively evaluating studying competencies of youngsters at courses III, V, VIII and X.

Addressing the state stage convention for varsity heads organised by the Goa Headmasters’ Association in Panaji, the chief minister stated, “When our students fared poorly in Maths and Science in NAS, people were not criticizing schools but there was a direct question mark raised on the state government. The state government was held responsible for the poor ranking in the NAS.”

“Despite providing good school infrastructure in comparison to other states and good pay scales to teachers, why is the performance so poor? This is a question that is haunting me,” the chief minister, who himself holds the schooling portfolio, stated.

He stated the race to have cent per cent leads to the Secondary School Certificate examinations by faculties was resulting in an enormous variety of college students dropping out in Class 9.

Praising the New Education Policy, the CM stated it addresses the sensible points confronted by college students and he thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for beginning a separate skilling ministry.

“The last education policy was introduced in 1986, which focused on ensuring no one is left without school education. The NEP speaks of skilling and every teacher should take this policy seriously,” he added.
