Tripura starts educational news bulletins on state-run dedicated edu channel

Eight months after launching a dedicated educational channel, Tripura today began streaming educational news on the channel and said the initiative would benefit students, teachers, parents and educators. The educational news bulletins would run for 10 minutes on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. respectively.

Nath, who inaugurated news streaming on the channel today, said the unique initiative was taken to spread education news to everyone and said his government attaches the utmost importance to education. He claimed that dedicated dissemination of educational news through a government-run education channel is the first-ever initiative of its kind nationwide.

“The fate of the country is shaped in the classrooms. Real education alone can solve all the problems of the world. There is no alternative. If we can provide quality education to our next generation, our dream of Ek Tripura, Srestha Tripura would be realized,” said the minister.

Earlier on 17 May 2021, Tripura launched Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb Vande Tripura as a dedicated educational channel to offer classes on school syllabus and cover the educational loss incurred in the past 14 months of pandemic when schools, colleges and other educational institutions were closed to break the transmission chain.

Speaking about his government’s plan to introduce innovative education initiatives to boost student interest, the minister said 33 innovative reforms have been implemented since his government came to power in 2018.

“As part of these innovative initiatives, we took the initiative to run a channel where leading educators would discuss curriculum and co-curricular issues with students stranded at home due to a pandemic. Eight months after launch Vande Tripura channel, we are now starting to disseminate educational news through this channel for the benefit of students, educators, parents, and people in general. As far as we know, this is the only government-run educational channel in the country,” he said.

Vande Tripura, which was originally intended to run 24×7, currently runs 14 hours a day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on all days, including holidays. A panel of experienced teachers from different schools conduct classes on the channel. It provides live and recorded classes based on the curriculum of grades 1-8, including classes on co-curricular activities such as art, dance, music, etc. and broadcasts talk shows and discussions on various aspects of education to raise awareness among stakeholders spreading.

The channel broadcasts classes to train aspiring students for the Tripura Science and Mathematics Talent Search exam.
