To make education more participatory and charge accountability in schooling, the Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to revive ‘Village Education Committees’ (VEC) in the state. The VEC will play a major role in developing the proper education system in the state and localise education, improve school plans, monitor enrolment, retention of students, compulsory education to girl child and other minority groups.
Hundreds of school buildings in the region are lying incomplete and the government is looking to complete these building in a time bound manner with adequate infrastructure to provide better facilities to the students.
In a bid to improve the state of education in the region, the government is taking corrective measures. Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed has also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his efforts he is making to improve the quality of education in India. With focus on Skill India and Digital India, the government is now trying to bring a wave of change in the education system.
