Computerised School Records In 2011
Posted by pratyushkp
From tax payment to shopping everything is becoming online. Now in 2 more months even information about primary and upper primary schools in each block of the state will be available online. This will enhance the record keeping system in schools in India. The school records as well as the details of the number of children in each school will be available online. According to the state Education Department, under the Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), they will computerise all its Block Resource Centres (BRCs) and make information of each primary and upper primary school available online..
According to an official as reported in the Indian Express “This is a big project and will help us create transparency and track each and every student in the government primary and upper primary schools,”. “So far, all records of these schools were only on paper. Often, we got complaints that in order to inflate the number of students enrolled, a child’s name was featured in two different schools in the block. But now, when all the records will be computerised and available online, it will be easier for us to keep track.”
The concerned State authorities are said to have already given the needed instructions for each district for purchase of computers and other equipment. It is expected that the instructions will be implemented by the end of this year
