GUWAHATI, June 25 - The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today demanded reformation in the State�s education system.
In a statement signed by its president Dipanka Kumar Nath and its general secretary Lurin Jyoti Gogoi, the student body said that unless the high schools of the State are upgraded to higher secondary level, about 60,000 matriculate students are not going to get the scope to undertake higher studies.
The student body�s statement came in the wake of the news reports that a large number of HSLC and HSSLC passed students have not been able to get themselves enrolled in the State�s institutions of higher learning.
It said that the government must ensure opportunities for undertaking higher studies to each of the students who successfully completes his or her secondary level education. It is the duty of the State government to provide 100 per cent enrolment facility to the successful HSLC examinees.
For the purpose, the government may go for introducing morning and evening classes in all streams � Arts, Commerce and Science � in the State�s colleges and those who cannot be accommodated by such arrangements should be provided with the scope to undertake skill development courses, said the student body.
