Vijay Rupani tells govt schools to perform better than private schools in Gujarat
Government schools should be better than the private and self-financed schools, chief minister Vijay Rupani told teachers and administration of government run schools on Sunday. Education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said that of late students are migrating from private schools to government schools, which is testimony of improving quality of government schools.
Rupani said this during the launch of a centralised command and control centre in state capital Gandhinagar to monitor the educational activities of thousands of government and aided schools across the state. The centre will track the attendance of students and teachers and allow officials to make data entry from schools they go to inspect through GPS-enabled tablets. The centralised control centre will track the activities and attendance of nearly 2.5 lakh teachers, 70 lakh students in over 42,000 government and aided schools, besides monitoring the work of block and cluster resource co-ordinators and school inspectors.
