Delhi among 5 worst performing states
The National Achievement Survey (NAS) 2021 Class III results are a direct commentary on the quality of teaching and learning in MCD schools. Class 3 results in the National Achievement Survey paint a dismal picture of teaching and learning in MCD schools, which ranks Delhi among the 5 worst performing states in India. In fact, the Class III results of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi are below the national average in all three subjects namely Language, Mathematics and Environmental Studies. The average state score for class three in the language is 52 per cent, while the national average is 62 per cent.
notice sought clarification
The notice issued by the DCPCR further said that it may be noted that poor performance cannot be taken as mediocre, as the score for class 3 in the National Achievement Survey 2017 was 58 per cent. Therefore, the commission has issued a notice to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi and sought an explanation for the poor performance. Time has been given to give this clarification within two weeks till September 19.
