‘DREAM’ Project Launched For 100% Matric Results In Odisha
Bhubaneswar: Following lacklustre results in the last matriculation examination, the School and Mass Education Department of Odisha government has joined hands with Ganjam district administration to boost pass percentage in Odia medium schools.
For this purpose, Drive For Result Enhancement In Annual Matriculation Examination (DREAM) initiative has been envisaged. Given poor success rate of matric students in Odisha last year, the state government had received criticism from several quarters. Show cause notices were also issued to 68 schools, which performed poorly in the examination.
“With this ‘DREAM’ project, we are trying to bring the fail percentage down to zero,” said Vijay Amruta Kulange, district collector of Ganjam.
The District Education Officer (DEO) of Ganjam, Dr. Sanatan Panda said, “We are trying to make the students learn the new format that has been adopted for next year’s Matriculation examination.”
Panda further added that the ‘DREAM’ project has been conceived to put special focus on the weaker students. Moreover two more examinations have been included between the Pre-Test and Test examinations to give weaker students proper practice ahead of the final matric exam.
Surendra Panda, Head Master of Giri Road Girl’s High School in Ganjam said, “I welcome this initiative taken by our DEO and the district administration. It will surely be beneficial for students.”
