In accordance to the national goal of universalisation of secondary education by 2020 as per the National Secondary Education Mission, the state has directed all the district officials to chalkout a plan, a Government Resolution (GR) issued recently said.
The primary objective of the Centre’s mission is to achieve 75 per cent Gross Enrolment Ratio at secondary level by 2012 and 100 per cent GER in the mid-term by 2017, it said.
The State Government’s job is to collect all information about the secondary schools and the students, which would declare the status of the education at district levels.
The collected information would be discussed in a meeting on 19th and 20th March at Pune, it said.
As per mission no child should be deprived of education due to constraints like gender, socio-economic situation, disability and other barriers, the GR said.
The students should have the schools within five kms distance of their village with safe transport arrangements and it should also be well-equipped, it said.
