Addressing the VIII chief minister education sub-committee meeting, Devnani said that the Kasturba Gandhi Residential Schools will be run from Class VI to XII, which earlier were up to Class VIII. “Ensuring all-round development of students, special focus will be laid on teachers’ training. Through SSA, the elementary and secondary education will be effectively executed, under which teachers training programme at the block, district and state level will be strengthened,” he said.
Devnani said Rajasthan had initiated pre-primary schools at 38,000 anganwadi’s, where for the first time 1,500 nursery trained teachers were appointed. “Pre-primary schools will be developed in the state on NCERT parameters. It is a matter of pride that proposals of Rajasthan were incorporated in the new education policy. The state’s education model is being discussed across the country for its innovations in educations,” he said.
The minister said providing quality education to children is the priority of the government – the results of government schools are better than private schools. Along with educational facilities at schools, libraries will also be developed.

“Development of education in Rajasthan is based on three ‘T’ – team spirit, training and technology,” said Devnani.
