Dharamshala, September 7, 2015: Himachal Pradesh CM Vir Bhadra Singh in his 3 days Tour to Kangra district  have announced the starting of science classes in GSSS Zamanabad and GSSS Raajal from next academic session .  He said at Kangra that the standard of education in almost all private schools was not up to the requisite standard as the results in many such institutions were declared on the basis of grading system without conducting any proper examination. If there were no exams, how we will come to know the performance of the children”, he questioned.
We have decided that all the schools will have compulsory examination at higher levels so that ability of children and their performance based on merit could be assessed. “We will soon have a separate wing for sudden inspections in the schools, which will,  besides checking the quality of education being imparted will also ensure that the teachers do not remain willfully absent from the schools particularly in rural areas. If any teacher is found on leave without getting it sanctioned from sanctioning authority he will be dismissed from the service,” he said.
We want that every student to be given attention, to be well taught and the teachers should realise their responsibility. They should also concentrate on providing Moral based education to the children.
