Government-run schools in Rajasthan will soon have their bright students and best teachers turn brand ambassadors to attract more students.
"We have got a proposal in this regard from officials of the secondary education department. We are looking at it," Rajasthan Education Minister Ghanshyam Tiwari told IANS here.
The need to appoint a brand ambassador was felt following increasing competition from private schools.
The brand ambassadors would be those who have made their institutions proud in some way.
"I feel it would be a step in the right direction to attract students to government schools," said Manisha Singh, a teacher in a government school. The teachers would take extra classes during holidays.
