Schools without MDM, smart classrooms

ROING, Aug 29: Only two out of four Roing schools were serving Mid Day Meals (MDM) due to non-release of conversion cost since October 2016 from the state office in Itanagar.
During a routine visit to schools, Roing ADC ChestaYadav and DDSE Ego Doye observed that MDM implementation has drastically been affected due to untimely release of conversion cost by the government, and that it required immediate attention.
Headmasters concerned expressed their inability to further invest from their own pockets, coupled with shopkeepers reluctant to provide grocery items on credit for too long.
Similarly, only two schools were found utilizing the K-Yan system for smart classes. The school authorities informed that they were unable to conduct smart classes as internal wiring, fittings and fixtures were totally damaged due to an electrification work done a considerably long time back, adding that repairs could not be made due to unavailability of funds.
Earlier, numerous children accompanied by their parents were found assembled in UPS Balek for Aadhar card registration for feeder schools in and around the locality.
The Aadhar registration had begun since August 17 last in the district, with one cluster of 19 schools already covered. (DIPRO)
