MP Govt To Establish 9,000 Institutions As Part Of School Chale Hum Campaign
Madhya Pradesh's Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, recently announced the establishment of 9,000 CM Rise schools throughout the state. During his visit to Shajapur district, he inaugurated a CM Rise School in Gulana village, which will be named after the eminent social reformer, Babasaheb Ambedkar, as a tribute to his significant contributions.
This occasion also marked the relaunch of the School Chale Hum campaign, which was initially initiated 23 years ago under the leadership of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The campaign aims to promote education and increase school enrollment across the state.
The primary focus of CM Rise Schools will be to provide quality education to students, incorporating smart classes where they can learn from teachers in Delhi and Mumbai. The schools will also ensure access to top-notch educational resources, modern labs, sports grounds, and other essential facilities to create an optimal learning environment.
In line with empowerment efforts, the government plans to establish Atal Tinkering Labs in these schools, fostering innovation, creativity, and skill development among students. These labs, part of the Atal Innovation Mission by the Government of India, aim to cultivate traits like curiosity, inventiveness, and design mentality, along with skills like computational thinking, adaptive learning, and physical computing.
As part of the state government's scheme, an event is scheduled on July 20, during which laptops will be awarded to meritorious students. The Madhya Pradesh government is committed to ensuring that children receive a well-rounded education, providing necessary resources such as cycles, dress, mid-day meals, and scooters to support their pursuit of education. Additionally, deserving students receive scholarships to alleviate financial burdens and encourage their educational pursuits.
