Enrolment in Pre-primary Wings of Govt Schools Up, Says Punjab CM Mann
Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann announced on Monday that enrolment in the pre-primary wings of government schools in Punjab has seen a significant increase. He attributed this progress to the relentless efforts of the state administration to uplift the education sector. Since assuming office, the AAP government has prioritized the enhancement of the state's education system, as stated in an official release by Mann.
The main focus has been on revitalizing the quality of education provided in government schools to equip students to compete on par with their peers from convent-educated backgrounds. Mann proudly declared that the government's concerted endeavors have yielded fruitful results, leading to a remarkable surge in enrolment in these schools.
Specifically, enrolment in the pre-primary (I) wing has witnessed a notable rise of 16.3 per cent, while the pre-primary (II) wing has experienced a commendable increase of 9.9 per cent. This is a testament to the transformation of Punjab's government-run schools into providers of high-quality education, Mann asserted.
Furthermore, the Chief Minister revealed that an increasing number of students who previously attended private schools are now choosing to enroll in government-run institutions. He expressed his belief that this trend will persist, envisioning a future where students from Punjab government-run schools will excel in various fields and leave a significant mark on society.
