Maharashtra emerging as the best place for quality education, ranks 3rd overall

Maharashtra, one of the largest state in India, now ranks third across the country in terms of the quality of education, said Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of the state. This is a good news for the state, which is also ranked as the third most urbanized state in the country as 45% of its population is urban.

He said that the government will soon be setting up a board, known as “divyang”, which would work only for the differently abled students in the state. Earlier, Maharashtra was ranked only at either 14th or 15th position, but, this year, it has been ranked at third position.

Chief Minister said, “For the last few years, Maharashtra was languishing at either 14th or 15th place in terms of quality of education. But we have jumped to the third position in the past one year. In the future, the state will be number one in the education sector.” He said this while he was presenting the Adarsh Shikshak and Savitribai Phule Adarsh Shikshika (Best Teacher awards) to 109 teachers. The education department will also focus on innovative methods for teaching students, he added.

He further added, “The state government disburses around Rs 50,000 crore to the education sector but it does not consider it an expenditure but an investment for the future. Teachers are responsible for readying the young generation for the future and making them fine, law-abiding citizens. Students’ uplift cannot happen without these teachers.” He also said that in the coming year, as much as 25,000 schools would be transformed into digital icons. And the state government will take of “Maharashtra net” in its hands on the similar lines like “Bharat net”.

The state government will take “Maharashtra net” in its hands on the similar lines like “Bharat net”, Chief Minister informed. The health and education services will be made available to the rural population in a much easier way and it would ensure that the gap between villages and cities is reduced. “In Nagpur, 750 gram panchayats have been completely digitalized,” the Chief Minister said.

As per the reports of an economic survey released in the month of February this year, our current education system needs quality education. It has also been seen that because of the lack of quality in education, there has been a huge number of dropouts. In the past, we have seen that India has been ranked poorly when it comes to quality of education, in reference to that, Maharashtra making such a mark is good news not only for the state but for the whole country as well.
