Gujarat’s significant progress in the field of higher education
The President said that Gujarat has made remarkable progress in the field of education among other sectors. Dropout rates in the state have dropped from 22 percent to 1.37 percent over the past two decades. The teacher-student ratio has also improved from 40 to 26. Today, through ‘Vidya Samiksha Kendra’, real-time monitoring of students and teachers is being done in around 55,000 schools, resulting in an increase in the academic performance of students. She pointed out that under ‘Mission School of Excellence’ a goal has been set to upgrade the infrastructure of 20,000 schools in the state in the next five years.
While delivering a speech, the President said that earlier in the year 2022-02, the number of secondary schools in the state was 775. The number has increased to over 3,100 in the year 2020-21. India’s first education quality and monitoring cell, ‘Garima Cell’, has been established in this state to assess higher education. The minister highlighted the fact that implementation of ‘Van Bandhu-Kalyan Yojana’ has seen a significant increase in literacy in the tribal community. This arrangement has also improved school dropout rates among tribal students.
