The Deputy Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Chowna Mein, recently convened a high-level review meeting at his official residence in Itanagar to discuss the effective implementation of 50 Golden Jubilee Model Schools across the state. This ambitious educational initiative has received a substantial allocation of Rs 500 Cr from the government.
The decision to establish these Golden Jubilee Model Schools was made during the momentous Golden Jubilee Cabinet Sitting held in Ziro in 2021. The primary objective of this initiative is to elevate the standard of 50 government schools and transform them into exemplary educational institutions.
To ensure a prompt execution, Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein has instructed the Chief Engineer of Urban Development, the executing agency for the project, to expedite the necessary formalities. The Chief Engineer, Naring Darang, has confirmed that Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) for the selected Golden Jubilee Model Schools have been completed in accordance with the government’s parameters.
During the meeting, concerns were raised regarding the underwhelming performance of government schools in Class X and Class XII Board Examinations. To address this issue, Education Minister Taba Tedir announced plans to convene a meeting with all principals and headmasters of secondary and higher secondary schools across the state. The purpose of this gathering will be to analyze and rectify the deficiencies that have led to poor performance in the CBSE Board Examinations.
Esteemed officials, including Principal Secretary Finance Dr. Sharat Chauhan, Secretary Finance, Planning & Investment R K Sharma, Director of Secondary Education Marken Kadu, and Director of Planning & Investment Pallab Deb, attended the meeting. Their presence demonstrates the government’s commitment to ensuring the successful implementation of the 50 Golden Jubilee Model Schools initiative and the overall improvement of the education system in Arunachal Pradesh.
