KOHIMA, April 19 � The Nagaland State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) has drafted guidelines of the Non Detention Policy (NDP) under the Right to Education Act with immediate effect.
One of the major highlights of the revised guidelines entailed that students will be declared either as �Qualified� or �Needs Improvement� (Passed or Detained) which in other words means that a student can be detained in the class if the school feels he is not qualified for promotion, Director of SCERT Nagaland, Vipralhou Kesiezie said in an official notification here recently. He also mentioned that the revised guidelines of NDP will come into force with immediate effect.
Taking cognisance of the skewed performances of the students and undermining the quality of education, the Academic Authority of the State of Nagaland (SCERT) under the RTE Act 2009 for Elementary Education has reviewed the Non-Detention Policy and made the changes, he said. � PTI
