New Delhi, Feb. 12 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday called for making one Vidya Bharti top school in every state of the country and stressed on technology for growth.
“Everybody wants to give their children a better life than what they have lead and want their children to study. Everyone from the richest to the poorest, dreamt of educating their children,” he said in his address to the principals at the Akhil Bharatiya Prachaarya Sammelan.
Prime Minister Modi said distance from science and technology hampers growth, adding it is important to use as much technology as possible.
Lauding the role of the principals, he said that the heads of the schools were not only responsible for the students but the entire school.
“When one says good education, they refer to having teachers who can make a difference in the life of a student. The lives of so many people are linked with you,” Prime Minister Modi said.
Asserting that knowledge must come from all sides, Prime Minister Modi said, “We must keep our mind open to best practices from across the world.”
“Can children from our schools become brand ambassadors of the movement to conserve energy,” he added.
The Prime Minister addressed principals of about 1,300 senior secondary schools on the ‘key role of principal in social and academic scenario’.
The Sammelan was organized by the Vidya Bharati Akhil Bharatiya Shiksha Sansthan. (ANI)
