No electricity in 500 schools of Bhopal, how will smart classrooms be prepared

No electricity in 500 schools of Bhopal, how will smart classrooms be prepared

Employment News-Crores of rupees are spent every year to strengthen school education in the state, yet thousands of schools are still away from basic facilities. The situation is that many schools do not have electricity, water and even toilets. This is when a separate budget is sanctioned from the Center for toilets and handwash units. Even after this, it is difficult to imagine washing hands for students in thousands of schools, because they still have to go out of school for defecation etc.

Government schools are in bad shape in the capital Bhopal itself. In many schools up to the secondary level, all classes are held in a single verandah in the absence of rooms. There are more than five hundred such schools which do not have electricity. In such a situation, how will the dream of smart class and computer education be fulfilled. There are hundreds of schools which have classrooms but their condition is dilapidated. At the same time, students of many schools still have to go out of school for toilets or drinking water. In such a situation, the State Education Center has once again sent a proposal to the Swachh Bharat Kosh to approve a budget of Rs 84 lakh for the construction of toilets in 8500 schools.

Online education is to be promoted under the National Education Policy. Smart class rooms and computer education have been made mandatory. Now in such a situation, when there is no electricity system in schools, then smart class cannot be imagined. There is no playground in 32541 government schools of the state.
