Punjab Government has decided to conduct special review of class-5 and class-8 students to identify strengths and weaknesses of each student so as to guide him on future career path according to his strength.
Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema, Education Minister, Punjab, while chairing the meeting of the department felt that initial career review of each student was imperative and asked SCERT to work out a programme to review each student so that academically weaker students could be provided specialised attention and coaching. Focussing on scientific review, the Education Minister said that all famous educationists should be involved in this exercise in this review process so that a comprehensive learning outcome review of each student could be conducted in an objective manner.
Underlining the need for retraining the teachers who have been consistently showing poor results, Dr. Cheema asked Education Secretary to issue instructions to all teachers in the state to upload their results of last 5 years on the portal of education department within 1 month. He said that he would personally evaluate the result of each teacher and those teachers providing poor results consistently would be sent on specialised training course to improve their teaching skills. He said that ACR of each teacher would be as per his performance in the results.
Present in the meeting included C. Roul, Principal Secretary, Pardeep Aggarwal, DGSE, Gurdeep Singh, Special Secretary.
