Government may build schools, but the future can be built by the schools only. The key responsibility of building Gujarat’s tomorrow thus lies with the schools.
The first decade of the 21st century was quite important for education in Gujarat, especially for primary education. Whether it is recruitment of the teachers, construction of class-rooms, computer labs, other school facilities, enrollment of students in schools or the mission to reduce the drop-out rate… an unprecedented success has been achieved. But doing all this is yet not adequate.
The soul of education is its quality … and that is why the State Government has taken up the ‘Gunotsav’ campaign. This could have very well been done by the teachers and the Department of Education. But to create the spirit of a high priority to this cause and to make those in the field of education feel the value of this activity, the complete strength of Government machinery has been deployed. Whether it is the Chief Minister or the Chief Secretary, more than 3000 Class-I & II Government officers are visiting the primary schools in Gujarat focusing on various aspects.
