BETUL: The poor performance of Class 10 students of schools run by the tribal welfare department in the district has laid bare the teaching standard of the schools and administrative competence of the officials. The commissioner of the tribal welfare department is highly dissatisfied by the results of Class 10.
Expressing his dissentience tribal welfare commissioner Umakant Umarao has severely castigated assistant tribal welfare commissioner, Betul, Sanjeep Jain over exceeding downward trend in results of Class 10 of tribal welfare department’s school. Besides, the block education officer and principals of the schools have also been shaken to the core by the dismal performance of the students.
The results of Class 10 board examination of the tribal welfare department’s school this year has been lowest in comparison to last five years. There has been 15% decrease in the results than the last year. In the year 2012-13 the results of the tribal school was pegged at 60% which nosedived to 45% this year and the results point to serious negligence of the department officials towards downfall in educational quality.
In the results declared recently by MP Board of Secondary Education, 3500 students of tribal welfare department’s school have failed. According to department sources, 11,732 students of 115 tribal schools took the Class 10 exam this year.
