The programme was organized by district administration in collaboration with Education Department Ramban and SSA to disseminate awareness among various stakeholders regarding components of SSA and RMSA for achieving 100% literacy in the district . DDC said that community mobilization and close involvement of community members in implementation of secondary education is extremely critical as it fosters ‘bottom up approach’ not only in effective planning but also in effective monitoring, evaluation and implementation of the government programmes besides ensuring quality education in government schools. Active participation of the community also ensures transparency, accountability and helps in leveraging the cumulative knowledge of the community for better functioning of schools he added. DDC also highlighted the integrated scheme of RMSA with special importance to decentralized planning and implementation with active involvement of community members, teachers, parents, local bodies including Panchayati Raj Institutions, Municipal Bodies and other stakeholders in the management of secondary education through establishment of Multi Member School Management and Development Committees.
