Beginning his term as the HRD Minister, Prakash Javadekar said that government will work in collaboration with academicians, teachers and students in order to enhance the quality of Indian education.
The first objective of the minister subsequent to joining office has been interacting with teachers and students to resolve their problems and address their grievances regarding the education system.
Prakash Javadekar has replaced Smriti Irani as HRD Minister. The minister addressed students and teachers at a central school and said that everybody’s cooperation is required to make Indian education better, especially in Kendriya Vidyalayas and other institutions that provide education in the country.
Talking about the objectives of Modi-led government, he said that to make a great nation focus on education is necessary and that is the direction in which all the educationists and academicians must be walking.
He also said that all educationists, education officers, students, and teachers will have to come together in the endeavor to enhance the quality of education.
Teachers also gave a memorandum to the minister while he addressed the gathering at the school.
Expressing his gratitude at having received a memorandum, Javadekar said that receiving a memorandum is an essential part of any addressing ceremony as without it the minister who is attending the programme wouldn’t know what needs to be done as part of the improvement drive.
Call education to be an emancipating project and an agent of change, Javadekar said that after discussions with the Prime Minister and the former HRD Minister, he will come up with a plan to take education to the next level.
During the interaction with students, Javadekar also talked about his mother and said his mother was also a primary teacher.
