Assam schools are likely to adopt a ‘hybrid method’ of teaching. The Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma has said that his government is planning to introduce a "hybrid method" of teaching, i.e. a mix of English and Assamese as mediums of instruction in schools. The government will be Kick-starting this year's 'Gunotsav', an exercise to evaluate the performance of the schools. The initiative will begin at two schools in Sipajhar of Darrang district, the CM informed.
An official statement released by the Assam government said (quoting Sarma), "The state government is contemplating to introduce a hybrid method of teaching with a mixture of both Assamese and English languages, aiming at widening the ambit of job opportunities for the students."
Rotational transfer of teachers within districts
The government is also planning to implement a rotational transfer of teachers within a district. The move will allow teachers serving in remote areas to get an opportunity to work at relatively easily accessible places. In order to make the plan of the government a success, the CM asked the teachers’ community to come forward and cooperate.
'Gunotsav 2022' to be held in three phases
The government conducted the 'Gunotsav' first in 2017. Two rounds of this exercise have already been conducted since then covering 33 districts.
The 'Gunotsav 2022' will be held in three phases across all districts and will conclude on June 4. Speaking on the occasion at Ghorabondha Junior Basic School, the CM said that 'Gunotsav' is a chance to understand the current condition of educational institutions and the challenges faced by them. It will help the authority to take necessary steps to improve the scenario.
