Assam state Education department has launched a unique programme ‘Maitree Ek Gyan Yatra’ in Sivsagar district to link primary schools to high schools to colleges. Under the initiative, college teachers are taking classes in high schools and high schools teachers are teaching in primary schools voluntarily.
The aim of the programme is to change the mindset of the teachers, as in some places subject teachers of a school considered it below their dignity to teach the lower level students. According to Sivsagar Deputy Commissioner, the basic idea of implementing the initiative was to improve the quality of school students and create better synergy in the education sector. The education department is planning to spread the unique programme across the state.
