Students in many government schools in Assam are in shock to find Bengali language pages in their Social Studies books.
Social Studies textbooks of Class 6 have some pages of Bengali language. The textbooks are published by the Assam State Textbook Production and Publication Corporation (ASTPPC).
State government aims to increase enrolment in the state-funded schools and reduce dropout rate with distribution of free textbooks.
But Himanta Biswa Sarma’s education department has failed miserably in providing textbooks to students on time. Some schools have not received the textbooks even after 45 days of commencing the academic year.
