“Students are the future of the country. This has led to an agreement with HCL, Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) to create all-round students in every school. State School Education Minister Deepak Kesarkar stated on Friday that the government is giving more emphasis on subjects like English, Mathematics and Science, and the help of these institutions will be taken for skill and technology based education.
Kesarkar gave the above information at an educational conference organized at Hotel Trident in association with Time to Grow Media and the State Government. The education sector is not only a factory of students, but the government is trying to make our country a global leader in the education sector. For this, students are being given skill and technology based education instead of only book knowledge. He said students up to class VIII were not being tested, however there was a need to analyze how much knowledge they had acquired.
Education Department Secretary Ranjitsinh Deol, Women and Child Development Commissioner R. Vimala, Manmeet Khurana, founder of Time to Grow Media and experts in the field of education were present on the occasion.
‘Blank pages for practice in books’
The new education policy conceived by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a golden opportunity for the future. Education imparted through mother tongue is more effective. In this regard, special efforts are being made in the new education policy. There are more than one lakh schools in the state and emphasis is being placed on using modern technology to make education accessible even in schools in rural and remote areas. He said that blank pages for practice would be added in the books to reduce the burden of notebooks on the backs of the students.
