The ASER has blamed the feebleness situation of Odisha’s government’s education system for this.

A senior official of the mass education department said the state government is under taking foundational literacy and numeracy (FLN) in all schools to improve knowledge of students.

The School and Mass Education department has introduced new and innovative features in classrooms. These include colourful desks in different shapes, teaching-learning materials, picture, story and poem cards, cupboards, green boards, display boards, wall paintings, among other things. These will enrich the learning experience of students.
