The government of Madhya Pradesh has plans to broadcast lessons and educational programmes for school students of classes 1 to 8 in the state. The broadcast of programmes will be done through radio and television to provide students with knowledge apart from school studies.
The Madhya Pradesh School Education Department will be overseeing this project, which will ensure that students are getting proper educational guidance through these programmes. Madhya Pradesh schools have been shut down for now for classes 1 to 8 due to the rise in Covid-19 cases.
The educational programmes will be regulated by the school education board of the state and will be broadcasted on radio between 10 am to 1 pm and on television from 12 to 1:30 pm. The radio programme will be broadcasted on the All India Radio channel.
The educational programmes on television will be telecasted on Doordarshan and will cover subjects including Science, Maths and Social Science. This initiative will help students cope with the academic pressure as the schools remain closed for classes 1 to 8.
