Lucknow: In UP, now private universities, schools or recognized institutions will adopt government primary and junior schools near them. Under the National Education Policy 2020, an order has been issued by the Principal Secretary, Basic Education, Deepak Kumar, to follow twinning pairing.
Under this, twinning will be done with government primary or junior schools located within a radius of 5 to 8 km. Under this plan, the principal, headmaster and teachers of both the institutes will brainstorm and decide the strategy and twinning will be done and an action plan will be prepared to create an environment for both as well as learning.
This will create an educational hub. Through this medium, the resources of both the institutions will be accessible to all the students.
Actually, now on the lines of mentorship program between two institutes, the institute which has better resources will share it with the other. In such a situation, a mixed learning program of library, playground, IT resources, cultural and sports activities will be run. Overall, now the council schools will be able to take education related support from private or aided schools, colleges or universities. For its monitoring, a committee will be formed under the chairmanship of the District Magistrate.
