Suggests measures to improve results of govt schools

JAMMU: Advisor to chief minister Prof Professor Amitabh Mattoo on Monday chaired a meeting of the committee constituted by government to suggest measures to improve results and achievements of the government schools besides raising overall literacy rate in the state.
100 headmasters and 100 masters from the 200 educational zones of the state will be sent for master training. The initiative would help to improve quality of teaching in government schools, an official handout read.
Public-private partnership of few selected schools would be made, which would also help to improve quality education in government schools, the handout read.
Prof Matoo stressed for improving quality of education in state-run schools.
He said, “No education system can thrive anywhere in the world unless they take the ownership of state-run institutions.”
He said that it was the government which had to create the edifice of a competitive education system and unless the state-run schools were on board, there is very little probability to achieve the desired results, the handout added.
