Education Minister inspects school

06/22/2019

Lamahi, June 22: Minister for Education, Science and Technology, Giriraj Mani Pokharel, has monitored the Sahid Smriti Awasiya Vidyalaya, a school, at Hemantapur of Tulasipur Sub-Metropolitan City-17, today. The school has been providing education to the conflict-affected children. On the occasion, the Education Minister said that schools such as this one, which have been opened to provide education to the children of the conflict survivors after the signing of the peace accord, would be developed as the central schools. "I have monitored this type of schools across the country and our goal is to develop these schools, where the conflict-hit children are studying, into central schools," he said. The Education Minister stated that initiatives are being taken for upgrading these sorts of schools which are operating as institutional ones amidst a dearth of means and resources. He insisted that the government wanted to connect education, science and technology as production power and it was moving ahead towards implementing this concept. Pointing out the need of changing the education system itself, he said, "Students after finishing grade 12 studies should learn skills." According to him, 80 per cent of the students were studying general subjects while only 20 per cent were studying technical subjects at present and this needed to be reversed. Tulasipur sub-metropolitan city mayor Ghanashyam Pandey expressed the commitment to develop this school as a model school. Officiating principal of the school, Dhaneshwar Pokharel talked about the various problems the school was facing including the lack of adequate physical infrastructure. School management committee president Hemraj Sharma said the school is providing education to the children of the conflict-affected people up to class 12 and they have the problem of continuing education beyond that level as their parents cannot afford their education expenses. So, provisions should be made for providing free education to these students beyond class 12 also, he suggested. RSS
