Applauding in the manner in which quality education is being imparted in the government schools of the state, the state education minister Jitu Vaghani said, about 3 lakh new students have been admitted in the government schools of the state in the last 3 years. Last year, 1 lakh students of the state got admission in government schools which is a matter of great pride.
While congratulating the students who have succeeded in the board exams, Education Minister requested the students who have failed in the board exams to give their best performance with one more effort.
Vaghani, who was present at the closing ceremony of the summer festival organized by GIET and GCERT in Ahmedabad, said that the summer festival has started for the first time in Gujarat. This is a unique experiment of the education department. During the vacation period for government school children, programs on subjects including Shrimad Bhagwat, Science, Mathematics, Arts, Music, Coding, Entertainment, Story and Country Sports were held online and offline, in which approximately 2.5 lakh children were registered.
Prime Minister Narendra Bhai Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat. In the National Achievement Survey conducted by NCERT, our state government schools have been at the top in the country with excellent performance in various subjects from Std. 6 to 8. The state has outperformed the nation, he added.
In the last 3 years, the level of education has improved a lot through various festivals and programs. In the last 3 years, about 3 lakh new students have been enrolled in government schools which is a record number. Last year, 1 lakh students took admission in government schools.
Arrangements were made so that the burden of the curriculum would not fall on the student even during the coronal period. The issue of cutting 5% syllabus was rejected in the interest of the students in consultation with the experts and the examination was conducted according to the method of more questions, less answers. The Department of Education has created an atmosphere of fearless exams for students and parents, he added.
