Quality is one of the pillars of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) scheme and it is
the critical outcome of the efforts and resources spent on improving the overall
education standards in India. Various studies conducted by different institutions
(like Learning Achievements Survey conducted by NCERT in 2009) indicate that the
state has to work with more rigor in order to achieve the high quality standard
of education. Few insightful observations of the NCERT surveys are:
- Socio economic status, availability of teaching learning material, educational qualifications
of the teacher positively influence the learning achievements among children.
- Performance in Mathematics is lower than Languages and EVS.
- No significant difference is observed between the performance of boys and girls.
- Learning achievements among ST and other social groups children vary significantly.
This just shows that with sheer focus on learning quality improvement can fetch
good results for the State. In the quest for enhancing the overall quality standards
of learning the State is continuously working on the following activities:
- Improving the standards and impact of Teacher Training
- Computer Aided Learning facilities
- Research, Evaluation, Supervision and Monitoring
