In a first-of-its-kind initiative in the government education sector in Punjab, the “Ghar Baithe Shiksha” programme has got an overwhelming response, especially from class X students, who will be appearing for their board examinations in March 2021.

The online classes for the students studying in government schools were started days after lockdown was imposed in the entire state.

A brainchild of Krishan Kumar, Secretary, Education, the programme was launched across the state via google drive app, booking space on radio channels and even using group messaging services.

In the beginning, the initiative drew a lot of flak, as people felt that not every student had a phone to access the classes. However, data available from the Education Department shows that almost all 1,85,643 students enrolled in class X in the state’s government schools began to take the classes.

To check the efficacy of the new medium of education, the department decided to conduct examinations.
