Gujarat Chief Minister Mr. Vijay Rupani appealed to the teachers across the state to give a lot of energy, vigour and dedication in the upcoming ‘Mission Vidya’, which is going to be launched on 26th July, 2018, for the students from class 6th to 8th.
Addressing as many as 70 thousand teachers across the state at 22 thousand centres, the CM gave his inputs through a video conference from his residence. The CM said that Gunotsav has had a fruitful output in improving the quality of education across the state. However, there are a few students from class 6th to 8th whose reading, writing, speaking and analytical skills can be improved. It is with this motive that the state government is starting the Mission Vidya.
The CM said, “The teachers should be careful in shaping the future of the future assets of the country by building confidence in the students to achieve great heights in their respective fields thereby doing justice to the noble profession.”
He also stressed that the state government is firm in its resolve to improve the quality of education across the length and breadth of Gujarat and has made a provision of Rs. 27,500 crores for education in the current budget.
Education Minister Mr. Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said that due to the encouragement and support shown by Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi the enrolment has now reached between 75% to 100 % and the school dropout rate has decreased from 37% to 3%.
Minister of State for Education Mrs. Vibhavari Dave, Chief Secretary Dr. J.N Singh, Principal Secretary of Education Department Mrs. Anju Sharma, Secretary to CM Mr. Ashwani Kumar and various other officials were present on the occasion.
