Central Chronicle News
Bhilai, Sep 06: Progress in the field of education is one of the most important priorities of the state government. A number of parents wanted to educate their children in English medium schools but were unable to do so due to financial constraints or other limitations. Therefore, the government opened 27 English medium schools initially which was well received by the people. The high level of facilities, academic standard, library, infrastructure, science labs and the hard work put in by the teachers have together taken these institutions to great heights.
Now there is a lot of demand for admission to these schools. Students from Chhattisgarh would now not hesitate in speaking English fluently when they are in cities like Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai. This is a big milestone that has been achieved. The aforesaid thoughts were opined by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel while addressing a felicitation function organised to honour torch bearers on the occasion of Teacher’s Day. The Chief Minister honoured both retired and working teachers under Patan Assembly constituency.
Honouring about 70 retired teachers and more than 500 teachers he further said that we are fortunate that our ancestors contributed a lot towards education in Patan area. Even before independence there were 6 high schools in the area. This work of our ancestors regarding education is praiseworthy. Baghel further said that Swami Atmanand worked hard to bring education to the children of Abujhmadh through Vivekananda Vidyapeeth, and they in turn have been excellent in studies.
, he further said that when we started this innovative project in education, it was decided to name these schools after Swami Atmanand. Earlier at the outset, the Chief Minister also remembered the contribution of former President Dr S Radhakrishnan. School Education Minister Premsai Singh Tekam in his address said that we have done very good work for education in the state through “Padhai Tuhar Dwar” and many such innovations.
