“The state government is in the process of identifying non-performing institutions and all those responsible for the poor show will be given compulsory retirement, as per government norms. A committee under Mahajan is already working under it to identify such headmasters, teachers, block education officers or district education officers,” the chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh said.

The scarcity in a number of teachers was also discussed in the meeting. The government would try centralized recruitment without tampering with the existing setup. The government will also go in for the merger of two or more schools in the same building in urban areas.
