Boomtime for residential school

Residential schools are set to change the face of Meghalaya’s education front in the rural areas. The first phase covers nine residential schools. Chief Minister Mukul Sangma laid the foundation stone of a residential school at Kapasipara in South Garo Hills on Friday.

He said that residential schools were essential to enable the children in backward areas to catch up with the rest of the world. He laid stress on the role and responsibilities of the teachers and school managing committees in the improvement of education and made an exhortation to revive the spirit of sacrifice and social service that had been the quality of teachers in yesteryears.

Sangma said two MFCs have been sanctioned for Gasuapara block and said that these assets should be put to multiple uses including social occasions and community training programmes. The MFCs can also be used as coaching centres for students appearing board and various competitive exams under Chief Minister’s Career Guidance & Counselling Programme.
