Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will launch ‘School Chalo Abhiyan’ in Shravasti district on Monday to ensure 100 per cent enrolment in primary and upper primary schools in the state.
Adityanath has instructed officials to make sure that districts with low literacy rates are prioritised, and primary schools in the state are equipped with better facilities.
A government spokesperson said the “School Chalo Abhiyan” is being started from Shravasti as it has the lowest literacy rate in the state, followed by Bahraich, Balrampur, Badaun and Rampur.
The CM said that government schools must attain 100 per cent saturation of ‘Operation Kayakalp’ indicators, which aim at giving the government schools a facelift.
Adityanath further gave instructions that along with all public representatives, who will be associated with the campaign, members of the legislative assembly (MLAs) must adopt one school each. In addition to this, the officials should also adopt the schools for their holistic development.
The CM has directed all government schools to provide basic facilities such as toilets, drinking water, furniture and ‘smart’ classes to the students. He has also asked the departmental officials to carry out a campaign to collaborate with the alumni (of government schools) and private firms to transform the state-run schools. Further directions have been issued to the Basic Education Department to gear up for the campaign and ensure the deployment of teachers in all state-run schools.
The Chief Minister asked the officers to run a time-bound campaign for the posting of teachers in every school.
