The studies, curriculum and grooming patterns of the private and government schools have been long compared in the country. The private schools have always been seen promoting their efforts and the facilities which they provide. The government school of koriyadadar has come up with an innovative idea of marketing itself. The pamphlets for this school under Gopalpur Panchayat of Raipur, Chhattisgarh are being circulated in the whole area so that the parents know what services are being provided here, at a very minimal cost in comparison to the private schools.
Initiated by Mr. Sunil Kumar Gupta, by taking assistance from the Gram Panchayat and other regional social service bodies, these pamphlets contain all the necessary details which the parents might be interested in knowing. There is a comparison drawn to show why government school of koriyadadar is better than the private schools.
It is a subtle but stark symbol that the government schools are struggling with a downfall in the rate of admission and hence, they are seeking the methods which had been left untouched. Promoting the school and its facilities has never been done for the government schools, but now, to increase the interest of the students and to draw the attention of the parents, this is a suitable way to go ahead. The teachers are themselves going from door to door so that they can ensure the proper reach of their advertisements.
In the pamphlet, the government school is making an announcement that the admissions for the next batch has started and there are limited seats. Various benefits are also being provided to the students who enroll their name in the school. They are given the admission for free, no-cost mid-day meal is also provided to the students, along with free uniforms. For classes 1 to 5, the study materials and books are also available for no cost at all. The burden of books has been kept as less as possible, for even the higher classes as they bring in only the most important subject materials to the classroom. Health check-up is also scheduled from time to time and the schools make sure that the quality of food is also maintained. The government sends very well trained teachers to the school so that they can establish the best bonds with the students and teach them appropriately.
The biggest attraction of the school is that the classes are laced with all the modern techniques and even audio-visual teaching method is available in the classrooms. Students get an opportunity for holistic development by interacting with the modern terms of the world and be prepared for the struggles coming ahead.
This initiative with the help of Chhattisgarh government is really shaping the future of the country, without putting any financial burden on the parents. It also reflects the motive of the government that it has been long that government schools have lived in a stereotypical bondage of under-delivery. It is high time that they break the notions and prove their stand in front of private schools.
