India’s first ‘Shramodaya School’, that would provide quality education to the students of poor and labour class, saw its foundation stone being laid by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The name of the proposed school would be ‘Deendayal Shramodaya Vidyalaya’. This school would consist of classes from standard VI to XII, and help students from labour classes to complete their school education without facing any hassle in terms of financial issues.
The school could take in admissions of 1,120 students and is coming up at Mugalia Chaap village, which is quite close to the state capital. The school is planned to get developed on the lines of Navodaya Vidyalaya, which has made fortunes for thousands of underprivileged children all over the nation. The school would get conducted through English medium.
While laying the foundation stone, Mr. Chouhan said that 60 percent of the students would be from the families of labourers and farmers, while the remaining seats would be given to local students who would be willing to study in the school. Apart from Bhopal, where the first of these schools are coming up, there are plans for making the same schools in Indore, Jabalpur and Gwalior as well.
The Chief Minster further added that until he is in power at Madhya Pradesh no children would face any difficulty regarding getting education due to financial reasons.
