Recently appointed, Union Human Resources Development (HRD) minister, Prakash Javadekar said in an interview that, the development of night schools in Zilla Parishad is a priority for him and the ministry.
Yesterday, he visited Gopal Krishna Gokhale Night School at Dadar, Mumbai interacted with the students of the night school.
The country's commercial capital, Mumbai has a well-developed infrastructure for the night schools. According to the official statistics, these night schools have as much as 15,000 students enrolled for various classes. The number of the students enrolled is quite high, therefore, high quality of education should be ensured in these schools. After all, many students of these night schools have emerged out as entrepreneurs and other successful occupations like hotel management. During the conversation, one of the officials of these night schools told the minister that, they were achieving 100 per cent result for the last four years, which is a great success of its own kind.
"Education is essential to uplift and I sincerely salute the spirit of these poor students, who are pursuing an education in night schools after putting in 8-10 hours of hard work during the day. After meeting you, my will to work for you has strengthened. PM Narendra Modi says working for the Dalits, the underprivileged and backward classes. We will study the problems of night schools and will do whatever is possible for them." HRD minister said during the evening. He also mentioned that he can well relate to the problems faced by the students and faculty as he has studied in a Zilla Parishad school as well. Therefore, he is keen to develop these schools.
