The Tripura government has decided to bring all the students aged 6-14, who had dropped-out of schools due to COVID-19 pandemic back to their respective classes.
The move came, after the education department conducted a survey and found that 8,850 students from Classes I-VIII had quit their classes, as physical classes were closed for two years, owing to the pandemic.
The department will embark on a mission to undertake an extensive survey to bring the dropout students into 4,300 educational institutions across the state, as part of the ‘School Cholo Abhiyan’.
“The survey work will be initiated by third-year college students and volunteers as part of a new programme dubbed ‘Earn with Learn’,” he said.
The volunteers will determine the exact number of dropout students and bring them back to the schools after persuading their guardians. It will commence from July.
