Classroom-Students just as teachers spend their lion's share of their time in the classroom.
The classroom should, therefore, be a stress-free environment where students and teachers
feel comfortable investing so much time.
Some basic features that a classroom should have, include-
Proper infrastructure which encompasses suitable benches or tables & chairs, blackboard
or whiteboard, notice board, proper ventilation and ample space for the free movement
within the classroom.
Safety measures like fire extinguisher, proper exit facility and earthquake resistant
buildings along with the installation of cameras in corridors.
Classrooms should be equipped with dustbins and cleanliness and hygiene should be promoted.
A sense of belongingness should prevail among the students so that they can ask their
queries and discuss topics with the teachers and among themselves.
Competence, which enhances students' capability to successfully meet their
goals and promote growth and development.
Teachers can increase students' sense of competence by providing appropriately
challenging tasks, giving formative feedback, and helping students recognize
their own strengths.
The teacher should see that discipline is maintained and students come to school
regularly and encourage healthy teaching practices so that classrooms can hold its
essence of developing a child's strengths.
Thus it is essential to have a well-managed classroom to improve classroom efficiency
and create an environment conducive to learning.
Student-Teacher Ratio is the number of students per teacher in an institute.
It is calculated by dividing the total number of pupils enrolled at a specific level
of education by the number of teachers teaching pre-dominantly at that level.
Ideally, at the primary level, the STR should be 30:1 and at the upper primary
level, it should be 35:1. The higher the ratio the lesser is the focus received
by the individual pupil. The underlying logic behind STR is that restricted
classroom size will improve the instruction quality. An overcrowded classroom
and stressful environment also affect students' learning capabilities.
That's why the STR is also a key parameter for parents before they admit
their wards to any specific school. Benefits associated with good STR are-
Greater attention to every individual
Better participation of students in the class
Improved comprehension of the taught topics
Good academic performance
A man is known by his deeds, similarly, schools are known by their past results.
Results present the trend towards which the school is moving.
the performance of the students tells us the quality of education provided in a school.
They act as the feedback and appraisal for the school teachers and give an
opportunity to improve their teaching practices. For parents, the selection
of a school for their child becomes a lot easier by assessing schools' past results.
Alumni are the brand-ambassadors of the schools they studied from.
They are the products of any institution's hard work.
Although an alumnus can be placed at in any field, we for the facilitation,
have categorized them into five, namely-
Others(Artists, Musicians, Sportsperson, Celebrities, etc.).
They can benefit schools socially, academically and professionally.
A school's recognition and celebration of past students' achievements can
benefit its current students who can learn and aspire from accessible role models,
and in turn, flourish and give back when the time comes.
Students report higher levels of engagement and
learning at schools where faculty members use active and collaborative learning
techniques, engage students in experiences, emphasize higher-order cognitive
activities in the classroom, interact with students, challenge students academically,
and value enriching educational experiences.
Quality faculty thus helps the student reach higher echelons in the academic front.
Experience always holds the key in any field, so faculty must have proper experience
of dealing with the students and their various problems.
They should be always in their toes to upgrade with the changing times and
incorporate the latest teaching practices in their curriculum.
Along with experience qualification also matters, teachers should be qualified
for whichever field they are associated with.
We count experience and qualifications that the faculty hold while calculating the rankings.
