News Reading Sessions Mandated in Government Schools

The government schools of Jharkhand have been instructed to compulsorily conduct news reading sessions and quizzes, by the school education and literacy department and the Jharkhand Council of Educational Research & Training (JCERT). This directive was issued in order to keep the students informed of the most recent development in current affairs.

As stated by a JCERT official, “Students should be aware of current affairs. As all the schools do not hold morning assembly news sessions, a Whatsapp group has been created to relay the news to all schools. It would now be mandatory for all schools to hold a news reading session.”

The news reading content and questions on general knowledge will be prepared by the JCERT and sent to schools on the evening of previous day for classes 1 to 5, 6 to 8, and 9 to 12. For students in classes 1 to 12, a total of 15 questions will be prepared categorically.

One hour before the commencement of the morning prayers, The Principal of the school has to be present in the school. Ensuring the involvement of maximum number of students possible during the general knowledge quiz programme, will be responsibility of the head-teacher and morning assembly in-charge. To oversee the programme, a five-member panel has been constituted at the state-level.
