The State Government is looking to improve the quality of education and also promote higher education.
Government-run schools and colleges need to upgrade the standard of education to be able to produce employable youth in the future. The industry is changing fast, and so are the required job skills. Therefore, the education system needs to be made industry driven rather than equipping the young talent of the country with obsolete skills.
While the government at the centre is doing its part by introducing new policies to make the education system trendy, as per the demand of the industry, the state governments need to take steps to ensure that the state-run schools and colleges are also upgrading their education system.
Working towards promoting higher education, the Haryana Government has decided to recruit 5000 regular computer teachers in 2018. The State Government has plans to include computer education in the regular state course.
The authorities in the State have come up with ideas to improve the standard of higher education in the schools and colleges, in consultation with various academicians and foreign guests.
The State Government has set up a college at every 20 kilometers. Till date, it has launched 21 new colleges in the State and another 27 locations have been identified to set up some more soon.
Also, working in line with the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana, the State Government has formulated the ‘Haryana Kaushal Vikas Mission’ to skill, train and provide employment opportunities to five lakh unemployed youth in the state.
It is also improving the infrastructure in the schools and colleges and focussing on improving the quality of research in accordance with industry needs.
