Haridwar: 20 July, 2015
Chief Minister Harish Rawat, while addressing a public meeting in the Bhagwanpur block, today said English language would be taught in government schools in more professional and competent way under a pilot project.
He said the step aimed at improving education standard in government schools. The Chief Minister said some schools had been selected to be covered in the first phase.
He said government schools lagged behind in providing standard education, as a result of which, public schools had mushroomed in every nook and corner. “To check this and improve the education standard in government schools, various steps are being taken. One of them is teaching English in government schools, for which a pilot project is being conceived. Also, the state government is trying to provide professional education in institutions so that students find it easy to opt for various employment opportunities after school and college,” Rawat claimed.
Attending an Id Milan function at Shahpur, Sherafghanpur, the Chief Minister wished people on the completion of the pious month of Mah-e-Ramzaan and Id-ul-Fitr.
“It is heartening to see people from various walks of society living with harmony and love in Uttarakhand. I hope this goodwill and mutual admiration continues in the future too,” Rawat said.
The Chief Minister promised to provide elaborate facilities and arrangements for the Kanwar fair beginning next month and the Ardh Kumbh fair scheduled to take place in 2016.
The Chief Minister said the state government was committed to making the fairs a success and providing better facilities to the pilgrims.
