The education department is taking full initiative in improving the education quality in schools.

Many measures were taken to reduce the percentage of dropouts previously the dropout percentage was 4.22, the education department organized Vidyalay Chalo Abhiyan in August. Household surveys were done under this program to identify the ongoing students approximately 3,191 children were of school-going age and were not going to school.
‘With this report, the parents of those children were persuaded and 2,313 children were enrolled in the schools. the officials are trying their best to bring 100 percent of the children for further studies. At the present moment, the dropout rate is 1.04 percent.’
The education department of Tripura has decided to set up four models of inclusive schools which are capable of teaching normal and differently able students under the same roof. Many schools have been selected for the implementation of this program including Khudiram Bose English Medium School (West Tripura), Kirit Bikram Institution (Gomati District), Kabi Nazrul School (khowai), and padmapur school (North Tripura).
