The Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate has ordered all the primary and junior governments school to hold parent-teacher meeting once every three months. The initiative will start from January 27. The decision has been taken to ensure focus on the growth of student like in private schools.
Basic education officer Bal Mukund Prasad said that over 78,000 students from class 1 to class 8 studying in 685 schools in the district will be covered under the initiative. School authorities and teachers will now have to pay attention to every student. “This meeting will ensure that all the students studying from class I to class 8 get proper attention of teachers and their parents,” Prasad said.
All government schools will have to organise a parent-teacher meeting every three months to have better communication with the parents of students in all classes.
“We have taken this decision as we want both, parents and teachers, of children studying in government schools to pay more attention to their kids. Our education officers will be keeping a check on this procedure. We want students of government schools to get proper attention, like private schools,” Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate BN Singh said.
The government schools will maintain the data of these meetings which will be checked by officials from the district administration . “We will conduct random checks at schools to attend meetings and will check the data maintained to ensure smooth functioning of this procedure,” Prasad said.
The decision to conduct parent-teacher meeting will also put pressure on parents who do not pay attention to their children’s academic performance.
“Many students in government schools are from poor background and their parents are not bothered about their studies. Through this meeting, they will come to know the importance of education and the performance of their kids. It will also help in keeping a check on the attendance of these students as many children bunk classes and the parents are not aware of it as they are busy earning a livelihood,” Prasad said.
