Jammu, October 16
Union Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar on Sunday said the ranking of J&K had improved significantly in the National Achievement Survey (NAS), a national-level assessment to obtain information about the learning achievement of school-going kids.
The minister informed that the UT’s rank had improved from 17 to 8 in the past five years. Sarkar was in the Valley as part of the third phase of the Central Government’s public outreach programme.
Addressing mediapersons in Srinagar, Sarkar said there was a movement going on in J&K which focused not only on education but on all round development of the students. He said funds received by the UT for education had gone up from Rs 8,000 crore to Rs 9,600 crore in the past two years.
The minister also said the Class X pass percentage in the UT had gone up by three points. He said an increase of 3.4% in the pass percentage was nothing less than record breaking.
He expressed satisfaction at the increase in enrolment of children in government schools. He also expressed satisfaction at the setting up of smart classrooms in more and more schools of the Union Territory.
According to the Union minister, the national curriculum framework with reference to the NEP was very democratic in the country and suggestions were taken from all stakeholders, including students and their parents for improvement of the system.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
