Lucknow: Yogi 2.O government in Uttar Pradesh is well on its way to achieve the target of two crore enrollment in primary schools in the state. Owing to the successful implementation of the School Chalo campaign, the target to enroll students in primary and upper primary schools in the state will have been achieved ahead of stipulated time-line, the statistics reveal.

This accomplishment of Uttar Pradesh shows how initiatives at the level of governance, peoples’ participation and political will can ensure education for all.

The overall target is to connect 2 crore children aged 6- 14 years with the drive in the academic year 2022-23. Currently, there are 1.88 crore children successfully enrolled and studying in 1.3 lakh schools in 75 districts of the state. The campaign was launched by chief minister Yogi Adityanath on April 4 from Shravasti.

Expressing satisfaction on the functioning of Basic Education Department, Chief Secretary, Durga Shankar Mishra said that the state is moving in a right direction due to the continuous reforms in the education sector.

Under the School Chalo campaign in all the districts, the parents were appealed to enroll their children during the SMC meetings. The teachers are conducting household survey across the state to increase enrollment. Along with that, enrollment of child laborers engaged in brick kilns and other industries was done under the campaign.

It may be recorded that as per the comparative study of the Basic education department, in the year 2016-17 about 1.52 crore students were enrolled in the primary and secondary schools. After Yogi Adityanath took over the reigns of Uttar Pradesh, the number of students increased to 1.88 crore.
