The public and government schools in our country have always been secondary to private schools. This negligence and subservience has lead to a financial and an infrastructural decline in govt. schools. However, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis hopes to revolutionize the current picture. Not only does he want to improve the groundwork if these schools, he wants to digitalize them.
“I visited some Zila Parishad schools recently and I saw a bunch of curious, responsible and knowledgeable kids. It’s a good thing that they know what’s going on in the country, most importantly, they are aware about the importance of cleanliness,” said Mr. Devendra.
On Wednesday, he interacted with six Zila Parishad schools through video conference. “We want to reshape the system. Our goal is to make it more interactive and modify the teaching approach. 11,000 schools have already undergone a make-over and now our objective is to transform the village schools in far-flung regions,” he claimed.
“I interacted with schools and parents and found that many parents have enrolled their children into Zila Parishads from private schools. It is great boost, said the Maharashtra CM.
