Dhar (Madhya Pradesh): Despite efforts to improve the quality of education under the Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan, the fact remains that Dhar failed to live up to expectations and fared poorly in the rankings.
The education department has released the quarterly evaluation report in which the performance of Dhar district has gone from bad to worse.
In the quarterly ranking of the state’s 52 districts, Dhar district dropped two more spots to take the last position in the latest evaluation. Under Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan, it was evaluated on 31 parameters in seven major components and points were awarded according to performance.
Last on the spot, Dhar has gained 55 percent points in the quarterly rankings from September to November. Jhabua is second from the bottom with 56 percent.
