Each and every student has his own potential, and it cannot be judged, until and unless they are given a chance to prove themselves. It is very important for every child to go to school, not only in urban but also in the rural areas. Primary Education is the base for the growth of every child’s mind and it should be granted to everyone in the best possible way.
Children living in rural areas are mostly not even sent to school for their elementary education, either because of lack of finances or many times because of no availability of infrastructure and resources in those areas. Punjab Government is not leaving any stones unturned to make sure that each and every child from the villages too, gets an equal chance to have a good source of primary education.
They are now framing a policy to start with primary education in all the 41 Adarsh schools from this session. This will help in serving every child,his/her fundamental right to education in the correct manner. The Education Minister of Punjab, Daljit Singh Cheema had said this during the inauguration of a Smart Tech school in Zirakpur.
Dr. Cheema believes that it is the responsibility of the schools to offer an equal opportunity to every child to showcase their skills and talents, and also the students should utilize all the facilities of the school, to build their mind and knowledge. He said that all the children who are above the age of three should now be admitted to Adarsh Schools for proper elementary education, which is a necessity for that age. The government schools should be capable enough to impart quality education as per the standards of the private schools.
It is unfair for those bright kids in the villages, who are capable and willing enough with bright minds, to be restrained from education due to unavailability of infrastructure and resources. It is the loss of the country if they are unable to impart education till those bright minds that can in future bring laurels to the nation and spread education and awareness. Along with the government schools, the private schools should also take this up as their responsibility to impart education till the rural areas of the state. They should make such arrangements that the poor can also easily access good quality education and lead a healthy and fruitful life. The government is now trying its best to take good quality education to every level of Punjab, from districts, to villages and even deeper.
