15% Concession to Maha TET School Happiness Program Announced by Varsha Gaikwad
Varsha Gaikwad tweeted, “Yesterday I signed as Minister of School Education of Maharashtra with these two decisions close to my heart. 1) Happiness Curriculum will be introduced from this year for Std 1-8 in all government and aided Marathi Middle Schools. 2) A 15% concession in qualifying marks for defense personnel and families of martyred soldiers in the teacher eligibility test in Maharashtra. Protecting the country is the greatest service rendered to the nation. It is our duty to support them and their families.
The Happiness Curriculum for Grades 1-8 is being introduced in the next school year with the aim of providing holistic development for students. Apart from the physical well-being, the mental well-being of the students will also be ensured under this program. This will help students connect more to their environment.
