Child mapping exercise begins

Views: 290

The UT education department began a child mapping survey to identify children who are yet to be enrolled in schools.
Government-run schools in the union territory have been told to conduct a survey of their respective area for identifying children up to 14 years, who are eligible for admission under the Right to Education Act, 2009.
The exercise is scheduled to conclude on March 20, after which the department will file a report. The exercise, conducted every year to maintain records of children residing within the city, is meant especially to identify children of school going age from economically weaker sections (EWS) of the population and other disadvantaged categories. Last year, more than 1,40,000 students in the union territory were surveyed in the exercise. A department official said the survey was expected to conclude by March 20, following which a report would be filed.
Schools, meanwhile, are reluctant to deploy their staff for the task. Saying teachers are already busy conducting examinations, school officials maintained that deputing teachers would only add to their burden.
