Biren launches School Fagathansi Mission at 2 schools

Imphal: Chief minister N. Biren Singh launched School Fagathansi Mission at Oinam Government Girls’ High School and Leimapokpam Government Public High School on Tuesday. So far, the state government has launched the mission in 15 schools at 15 Assembly Constituencies.

School Fagathansi mission was launched to improve the government schools both in terms of physical and manpower infrastructure at par with the private schools. Nowadays, children’s education requires a huge amount of money if they are sent to private schools. As such, to ease this hardship being faced by poor parents, the Government decided to develop some selected Government schools as model schools, the chief minister said.

With this mission being implemented, government schools would have similar infrastructures and manpower like in private schools, he added.

Earlier, government schools did not have Pre-nursery classes. So, it was also one of the main reasons for not choosing government schools by parents over private schools, Biren said.

Now under School Fagathansi mission, selected government schools will have classes from Pre-nursery to Class X or XII, he said while adding that this would bring continuity in education for students of these schools. For this, the chief minister informed, the state Cabinet had approved recruitment of Pre-nursery teachers under this mission.

He said government schools had seen lots of improvement in the past three and half years. Number of position holders among the students of government schools in Class X and Class XII examinations had increased considerably, he said. He informed that enrollment of students in government schools had also witnessed a steep rise during this period.

Government schools are people’s schools where they can give good education with nominal expenditure, he added. A series of seminars would be organised to discuss the National Education Policy, he said.

He observed that politics should never interfere in the education sector because it is the backbone of the society.
