Education minister Geeta Bhukkal has said that the children of labourers working in brick-kilns would be admitted to nearest government schools.

Bhukkal, who was in Jhajjar on Sunday, said that such children would also be given books and uniform free-of-cost. Also, they will get mid-day meal. She said that efforts were also being made to provide computer education to the students.

She said that there was also plan to deploy special buses so that girls didn't face any difficulty in reaching their educational institutions.

On shortage of teachers, she said that teachers were being adjusted under the rationalisation process. She said that the government was taking steps to ensure that there were enough teachers in every school of the state. The government is also filling up vacancies of teachers, she added.
