Lucknow, 30 September: The Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh claimed that the reforms in the state from basic education to higher education within the last four and a half years have become an example.

A spokesman of the state government said that in four and a half years, the government has taken steps to rejuvenate 1.38 lakh primary schools, build state inter-colleges and implement the ideas of the students through the Start-up scheme to provide high quality education to the children of primary school.

The spokesman said that the government has made the biggest change in basic education. To end corruption, for the first time, money for shoes, stockings, bags and sweaters given to primary school children is now being sent directly to the parents’ account through DBT. The government has filled the shortage of teachers by recruiting 1.25 lakh teachers in primary schools.

He said that the state government has done the work of changing the picture of education in four and a half years. Steps taken from primary to degree and to improve technical education are proving to be a milestone.

“Meanwhile, children of Vantangia and Musahar society who were deprived of education till now, the government got 33 primary and upper primary schools constructed for them in Vantangia villages,” he added.  

He further stated that due to the policies of the government, there was a record increase in the number of students in primary schools through the School Chalo campaign. On the lines of private schools, English medium education was started in the schools of the state so that the children of government schools could speak fluent English. The shortage of teachers was removed by merging 24721 schools.

An official spokesman said that the state government has taken major steps to improve the secondary education along with basic education. 250 new Inter Colleges were established in four and a half years. In this, most of the schools were built in rural areas so that the students of the village do not have to go far for studies.

“Similarly, Atal residential schools were established in 18 mandals to provide free education to the children of laborers. Improvement in studies was done by recruiting teachers on 5987 posts in inter colleges. For girls, 107 hostels are being constructed in all the divisions,” he concluded.
