The Odisha government has decides to double the classroom teaching time from 45 minutes to 90 minutes for three subjects, that includes English, Mathematics and Science. The government wants to improve the learning outcomes by doing so.
Speaking to reporters, School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash said the decision was taken after reviewing the performance of students in these subjects.
“…in subjects like English, Science and Math, the performance is a bit weak. To focus more on these subjects, we have decided to double the teaching time of these subjects,” he said.
“That means routines will be prepared in such a way that while other subjects will get 45 minutes of teaching time (daily), these three subjects will get one-and-half hours,” he said.
