Kannur: Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) has reported that over 1.5 lakh students have been affected by the floods that devastated Kerala. It is noted that 2.20 lakh uniforms and eight lakh text books were damaged in the floods.
In order to meet the huge loss, SSA has requested the centre to allot special fund of Rs 330 crore. Officials will meet the secretary of Ministry for Human Resource Development.
The floods affected 567 schools in the state. A total of 1520 toilets in schools were destructed. Most of the buildings should be reconstructed. Libraries and furniture were also destroyed in the flood.
It is learned that the centre has reducedthe fund allotted to schools in Kerala. Last year, only Rs 135 crore was received instead of Rs 360 crore that was earmarked for Sarva Shikha Abhiyan (SSA) and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA). Though SSA has requested for Rs 440 crore this year, only Rs 250 crore was allotted by the centre. As first instalment, only Rs 100 crore was received.
In Kerala, 1.72 lakh differently abled students are studying in various schools. The floods affected their schools too. It is reported that district centres will distribute materials for these students.
During the previous year, SSA has given the tender to distribute materials for differently abled students to a company called Alinco. But the company failed to distribute the materials in many places. Even spectacles were not distributed till the end of academic year. Following this, SSA cancelled the tender and assigned district authorities to carry out the distribution.

Though this is not the first time a government website has been hacked, the authorities have not reacted to the same.
New Delhi: Members of the HRD MinistrysNMCME have pitched for capturing details of unregistered madrasas in the country and setting up a national-level madrasa board with a suitable system for accreditation to ensure their academic standards.
In a recent meeting of the National Monitoring Committee for Minorities Education (NMCME), panel member Afzar Shamsi recommended that the data of unregistered madrasas be captured.
"There are two types of madrasas, one which are registered which are roughly 20 per cent and the other one are unregistered which are around 80 per cent. All the data which the government is having is based on registered madrasas," the minutes of the meeting quoted Shamsi as saying.
"There is a need to capture the details of the unregistered madrasas and bring them within the ambit of registration so that a clear picture is available," he said.
Another member Jamshid Khan said, "Madrasa boards in some states are defunct. While some states have these boards, some like Maharashtra do not have any madrasa board".
"It is suggested that there should be an all-India level madrasa board with suitable system for accreditation to ensure academic standards," he said.
"Madrasa should be linked with skill development council. In order to facilitate the spread of information amongst the madrasas besides making it available on the website, there should also be a move to spread an awareness campaign in their areas in which we members can contribute," another panel member Suman Kumar said.
The NMCME is chaired by Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar and consists of nominees from state governments, Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, academics, activists, administrators concerned with minority issues and the HRD Ministry officials.
The main function of NMCME is to monitor minority education and the ongoing schemes of the Ministry targeted at the community. It also makes recommendations to address the issues related to recognition and affiliation of minority institutions.
