Jharkhand CM Inaugurates 80 Excellence Schools with Ambitious Goal of 5,000
In a significant stride towards enhancing the state's educational landscape, Jharkhand's Chief Minister, Hemant Soren, inaugurated the first phase of 80 excellence schools on Tuesday, signaling a broader mission to establish approximately 5,000 such institutions. According to officials, these newly inaugurated schools are slated to commence operations in June.
Addressing a gathering during the inaugural ceremony at one of the Schools of Excellence in Ranchi, Chief Minister Hemant Soren emphasized the government's unwavering commitment to providing top-quality education to students, particularly those from marginalized societies.
"The enhancement of school education should have been a priority from the inception of our state. We are not merely bolstering the education sector but introducing new dimensions to it. Our vision is to equip children from marginalized backgrounds with the skills and knowledge to compete effectively with their peers. We aspire to establish around 5,000 such schools. However, it remains a paradox that despite having approximately 35,000 schools in the state, we have not been able to upgrade all of them," remarked Chief Minister Hemant Soren.
This momentous step is expected to bring about significant improvements in the accessibility and quality of education for students across Jharkhand, ultimately paving the way for a brighter future for the state's youth.
