‘School Chalo Abhiyan’ to ensure 100 percent enrolment in primary, upper primary schools: Yogi Adityanath
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will launch the ‘School Chalo Abhiyan‘ to ensure 100 percent enrolment in primary and upper primary schools in Uttar Pradesh. The Abhiyan will be launched from the Shravasti district on April 4.
The ‘School Chalo Abhiyan’ is being started from the Shravasti district which has the lowest literacy rate in the state followed by Bahraich, Balrampur, Badaun, and Rampur, according to the press release.
The government schools must achieve all the goals of ‘Operation Kayakalp‘ which aims at giving schools a facelift, Yogi Adityanath said. He told officials that not only will public representatives be associated with the ‘School Chalo Abhiyan’, but also MLAs must adopt a school each, according to the release.
This will be another effort made by the Uttar Pradesh government in the direction of shaping the future of primary education and towards the holistic development of primary schools.
The Chief Minister, according to a government spokesman, has instructed that the districts with low literacy rates should be prioritized. The primary schools in the state should be equipped with better facilities, he said.
Yogi Adityanath further instructed the officials that along with all the public representatives that will be associated with the campaign, the Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) must adopt one school each. In addition to this, the officials should also adopt the schools for their holistic development.
The Chief Minister has also directed that all the government schools must offer basic facilities – toilets, drinking water, furniture, and smart classes to students. He also asked the departmental officials to carry out a campaign to collaborate with the alumni (of government schools) and private firms for the transformation of state-run schools.
Further directions have been issued to the basic education department to gear up for the campaign and ensure the deployment of teachers in all state-run schools. All students will be provided with uniforms and shoes and socks.
The Chief Minister asked the officers to run a time-bound campaign for the posting of teachers in every school of the Basic Education Council.
