Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister, stated on Wednesday that education was crucial to lowering poverty in the state. Additionally, he stated that the government was developing a strategy to improve secondary education, with an emphasis on improving student skills and infrastructure.
Launching the DBT scheme for the academic session 2023-24 and inaugurating 125 KGBVs, the CM said, “Before 2017, children feared going to school. The schools were in shabby conditions. In the past six years the enrolment in the UP basic schools has increased by over 55 lakh. Earlier, someone else used to run a ‘nakal adda’, but teachers were made infamous for the cheating menace.”
The CM released Rs.1200 for each student registered in basic schools for the academic year 2023–2024.
According to the CM, there are more than 1.91 crore students enrolled in UP schools, which is greater than the population of many nations. Will said that despite a chronic teacher shortage in schools during the previous six years, more than 1.61 lakh new teachers were hired by the basic and secondary education boards. According to Mr. Yogi, the additional demand placed on the schools will be met by ongoing recruitment of new instructors to fill the positions left vacant by retiring teachers.
Referring to the Niti Ayog’s multidimensional poverty indicator as an alarming signal, he said, “education has played a vital role in reducing the poverty in the state. There has been a substantial progress made in the field of education including that in the aspirational districts and the positive results will be evident in the next five years.”
