Rajasthan is one of the developing states in India and chief minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje has taken an initiative of giving a new shape to the education front. Raje who leads Bharatiya Janta Party government in Rajasthan has chosen two significant revisions for the act Right to Education or (RTE).
The first step is to reestablish the parameters of the examinations in at least three classes from Class I to VIII. The next initiative is to provide more weightage to “learning outcomes”. In the program she also added saying that she is not focusing on the physical infrastructure or to the buildings but trying to provide the registrations and recognitions to all the schools in Rajasthan.
Vasundhara Raje, the Chief Minister has talked about these initiatives during the program named “Sarkar Apke Dwar”. In this occasion, parents had suggested that complete ban of examinations or test till VIII is not a right decision for the sake of children. The Chief Minister has agreed with them and she has promised that children should acquire class-appropriate learning skills. It is important to improve the growth of education standard in Rajasthan, especially for the children who are future of the state and nation. According to some sources, the state is also considering assessments at the stages of standards III, IV and VIII.
The most important and second revision in an RTE Act is to focus on “absolute, relative scholastic learning outcomes”. Currently, this is under consideration for the schools than on hardware such as school buildings, playgrounds and more. Rajasthan Government has decided to provide the education system a new direction and shape the future of the kids.
