Calling the move (nursery section in government schools) as a singular most achievement of the state government, Goel said, "It will go a long way in bringing the academic level of the children belonging to underprivileged sections of the society on par with the more resourceful students of private schools.
He further said, "The aim of the state government is to make the public school students more competitive vis-à-vis more resourceful private school students. This will stand them in good stead while accessing employment opportunities when they grow up." Te autem hortamur omnes, currentem quidem, ut spero, ut eos, quos novisse vis, imitari etiam velis.
He further said, "The aim of the state government is to make the public school students more competitive vis-à-vis more resourceful private school students. This will stand them in good stead while accessing employment opportunities when they grow up."
Later, Ram Niwas Goel, as the chief guest on the occasion, also inaugurated a mobile school (a van to serve as a classroom equipped with all educational paraphernalia) launched the NGO (Mishra Memorial Samiti) for the benefit of slums children. At least 44 people, including Sushil Mishra, organising Secretary of the Mishra Memorial Samiti, organisers of the camp, donated their blood.
Besides the mobile school, the Samiti started a vocational and computer education programme along with a tailor training course at Vivek Vihar phase I, inaugurated by Goel, to help unemployed youth engage in gainful employment or self-employment.
Samarpit NGO coordinated with the Samiti in conducting the programme.
