Dehradun: 5 September, 2015
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Friday expressed concern over the high drop-out rate in government schools of the state and asked teachers to look into the factors which have caused government schools to lag behind private schools and prepare a roadmap to enhance their standards.
Noting that results in terms of quality of education at the school level are not in proportion to the size of investments made in the education sector in the state, he said reforms in the education sector need to be implemented on a priority to bring about a change.
"The high drop-out rate in government schools of Uttarakhand should serve as a wake up call. Dividends in terms of quality of education in our schools is not in proportion to the investments made in the education sector.

"Serious thinking to improve the standard of education is not enough. The reforms required need to be implemented on a priority basis to effect a real change on the ground," Rawat said while addressing teachers at a programme at the Hindu National Inter College here.


"There is no dearth of infrastructure in the education sector in Uttarakhand. Number of government schools, colleges, polytechnic institutes and ITIs in Uttarakhand in proportion to our population is more than many other states but our government schools are yet to come up to the mark in terms of quality of education," he said.
He asked teachers and academicians to look into the factors which have caused government schools to lag behind private schools in terms of quality of education and prepare a roadmap to raise its standards.
