Lok Sabha MP Baijayant Panda bats for Navodaya Model of Education
Eminent intellectual and Lok Sabha MP from Kendrapara, Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda has argued in favour of Navodaya Schools, saying this model has been successful for decades. Mr. Panda put a question to HRD Minister Smt. Smriti Irani recently in Lok Sabha.
“While many new ‘model schools’ are being set up by the government today, we can’t deny the fact that Navodaya Model has been very successful. Set up as residential schools in rural areas, they have provided tremendous opportunities for students who would otherwise have been deprived of quality education”, he said.
“However, we need those Navodaya schools to be upgraded, with better infrastructure and adequate facilities for students and teachers, in line with the new model schools being set up now,” added Jay Panda.http://www.goinews.com/2016/05/16/lok-sabha-mp-baijayant-panda-bats-navodaya-model-education/MPsBaijayant Panda,Education,Lok Sabha,MP,Navodaya Schools
