Over 4,000 state-run schools in Jharkhand will be upgraded to ‘schools of excellence’ to ensure quality education for the students, Chief Minister Hemant Soren said.
Addressing the conference of School of Excellence Management Committees here on Monday, Soren said the students of Jharkhand are not behind in any field but there is a need to connect them with resources.
“Our government has resolved to provide quality education to the students studying in government schools in the state. The children of Jharkhand will shine in education along with sports,” he said.
“In the first phase, education is being imparted on the pattern of CBSE in 80 schools of excellence. In the coming days, 4,000 more schools will be converted to schools of excellence,” he added. A competition will be organized among the selected schools of excellence. “The staff and students of the school that performs better will be taken on a tour to other states of the country,” he said.
