​98 percent India's started going to school under RTE, says HRD Minister

The HRD Minister claimed that the government spent Rs 1.75 lakh crore last year on higher education. This will be increased in the days to come.

Prakash Javadekar, Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister has said the standard of education in the country has registered a significant improvement due to the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan which had started during the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government's tenure. He said 98 per cent of the children have started going to school after the implementation of Right to Education.

The HRD Minister claimed that the government spent Rs 1.75 lakh crore last year on higher education. This will be increased in the days to come. The capacity to spend will increase when tax income will increase. The money will be used for the growth of the country, he said.

Talking about learning outcome, the Minister said it would be a teacher's responsibility to ascertain the level of knowledge which a Class 8 student should have. The issue of holding Class 5 and 8 examinations should be left on the state governments. There should not be any examination till Class 4. Tenth Board examination will take place, he said.

Talking about the priorities of the Narendra Modi government, he said the education system will be improved in mission mode. The mere paper work to complete formalities will not be allowed to continue. The Modi government's target is "Sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabko acchi shiksha (everyone's support, everyone's progress, good education for all)", he said.
