He said the Right to Education enacted by his government ensures that every child has the Right to eight years of education. The Mid Day Meal programme has assured over 10 crore children are provided meals which has helped in retention on the kids in schools. Focusing on some of the shortcomings in the present education system, the prime Minister said that the standard of teaching needs to be improved and the problems of high drop out among the school children needs to be tackled. Lauding the role of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, Dr. Manmohan Singh said these institutions can help in setting standards in school education in the country. He said about 11 lakh students are studying in about eleven thousand Kendriya Vidyalayas which are providing quality education by using latest information technology and teaching of foreign languages as a subject. He also appreciated the role of KVs in catering to the need of Armed forces whose members were frequently transferred.
Speaking on the occasion the HRD Dr. M.M.Pallam Raju said KVS has adopted technology in a big way in order to bring substantial changes in the class-rooms through ICT enabled facilities. Most of the KVs have their own website, have internet facilities and computer labs, the computer-pupil ratio is one teacher for twenty one students. With the introduction of ICT enabled class-rooms, use of ICT is being made in the class-room which is expected to lead to significant improvement in the teaching-learning process.
Dr. Raju said Ministry has nominated KVS as the Model School Organization for the 2500 Model Schools to be set up under the PPP mode.
