PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS
The Board, it is well-known is on the threshold of entering into a new era of universalization
of primary education in West Bengal. The growing responsibilities as
a matter of fact, call for wide capacity building. The need for completion
of all infrastructural facilities in its new administrative headquarters
as well as that of setting up of some special cells are also emergency
in nature. Besides the ongoing programmes as noted above, implementation
of some other important programmes now seem to be an imperative. Some
such programmes and cells are mentioned below:
I. Two-day sensitization programme for all the officials, stakeholders
and others connected with primary education at the village Panchayet
level in respect of the renewed curriculum and syllabuses.
II. Qualitative Improvement of Teacher Education imparted by the PTTls:
Physical infrastructure and capacity building through refresher courses.
Renewal and Revision of Curriculum and Syllabuses.
III. Development of Course Materials for Trainees in the PTTls.
IV. Setting up of (i) Research and Impact Study Cell, (ii) A Well equipped
Library (iii) Documentation Cell. Proposals for setting up of these
cells have also been submitted to the State Project Office of SSA.
V. Orientation of the Textbooks writers at the primary level.
It is earnestly and sincerely hoped that Board in close collaboration
with WBDPEP, Paschim Banga Rajya Prarambhik Siksha Unnayan Sanstha and
other sister organizations will soon usher in a new era in the arena
of primary education in West Bengal.
