The Chief Minister also gave the teachers “foreign tour kits.” On March 15, the second batch of 98 teachers would be sent abroad, the chief minister said.

The state slipped to 18th rank in education due to lack of interest of the previous government, he said.

Sukhu said that the Rajiv Gandhi Day Boarding Schools being opened in the state were a unique initiative towards giving students qualitative education. In the next 10 years, they would emerge as the best schools, Sukhu claimed.

He said that English medium would be introduced from class 1 in government schools from the next academic session.

State education minister Rohit Thakur said that the government was filling vacant posts in the education department on priority basis.
