Officials have to devote one day to schools, preferably one day every month, by visiting them, partaking in lectures and assessing students’ learning. Officials will also have to meet the village sarpanch, school management committee and gram panchayat members to discuss on ways to up enrollment ratio in schools.

Officers have also been asked to assess physical facilities, quality of students, play equipment, provisions of hygiene and cleanliness in the meals provided in schools, apart from illegal constructions and closed toilets due to inadequate facilities of water, and take steps towards their rectification.

“The campaign has been launched to help develop a positive attitude in society and among parents towards education, and give children the opportunity to express themselves confidently,” a government notification said.
