Delhi Launches “Mission Buniyaad” to Improve the Learning Skills of Students

Deputy Chief Minister (CM) and Education Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia launched another ambitious project of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) – “Mission Buniyaad”.
  • This mission is basically for children of classes III to IX in government and municipal corporation schools.
  • Addressing the low learning level of children in these classes, the government decided to launch a three-month campaign at the beginning of the academic year 2018-19 to make all students be able to read, write and do basic math operations.
  • This three-month campaign will continue through May and June 2018.

Highlights

  • As per the National Achievement Survey 2017 data released by NCERT last month, Delhi government school students were found to have lowest learning levels in these classes.
  • During the campaign, two-three hours of focused activities will be conducted by the school teachers every day with all those students of classes III to IX who cannot read their textbooks or solve basic numerical problems to strengthen their reading, writing and math skills.
  • Special efforts are being made by the government to reach out to the parents through advertisements on FM channels, mega parent teachers meetings (PTMs) and letter to the parents to convince them to stay back in Delhi for the entire duration of the campaign and send their child to school.
  • Under the programme, children will undergo a reading level assessment based on which they will be enrolled in specialised classes.
