Yogi govt aims to ensure quality education
Yogi Aditynath-led Uttar Pradesh government is looking to invest approximately Rs.2,000 crore in upgrading state-run primary and upper primary schools across the state. This initiative aims to ensure quality education for all children in the region.
According to the government spokesman, a total of Rs.1,000 crore will be spent on developing every development block (a total of 880 primary and upper primary schools) of the basic education department under the Mukhyamantri Abhyudaya Yojana.
The government intends to develop about 4,000 (4-5 in each development block) Abhyudaya composite schools in the next three years. For this, the basic education department has prepared an action plan for further action.
By upgrading these schools from pre-primary to classes 8, the state government is not only aiming to provide quality education to every student but also wants to equip schools with all the facilities to develop students’ skills.
Director general, school education, Vijay Kiran Anand said these schools will be upgraded as per the prescribed standards and will be given the status of Mukhyamantri Abhyudaya Composite School.
“A provision has been made to upgrade the infrastructure facilities in each composite school with a sum of around Rs.1.42 crore. In this way, in the first phase, about 704 council schools will be upgraded as Mukhyamantri Abhyudaya Composite School from the budget allocated for the basic education department,” he said.
These schools will be especially encouraged for inclusive and skill development of children as per the National Education Policy 2020. After the upgradation of these schools, the arrangement of separate classrooms per class will be ensured from pre-primary to Class 8. Each school will be developed with a capacity of about 450 students.
