Challenges in education sector to be discussed soon: Smriti Irani

BHOPAL: Union human resources development minister Smriti Irani during a meeting held with chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday said that there are several challenges in the implementation of Right to Education Act.

Irani said that a meeting would be convened soon to hold discussion on challenges in education sector at state, regional and national level. Chouhan said quality of education has been affected due to scrapping of board exams for class V and VIII following implementation of Right to Information Act.

Chouhan added, “Keeping this in view, evaluation system of primary education should be re-started.”

He said that 4.25 lakh children have been admitted in private schools in the state under Right to Education Act. The state government spent Rs 300 crore on the education of these children.

“Central government should also share this expenditure. Besides, funds should be provided for providing free uniforms, text-books and other expenses,” Chouhan said.

He said in view of shortage of reading rooms in 1,253 higher secondary schools in villages, a proposal of Rs 150 crore has been sent to the Centre.
