The Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Harish Rawat has launched a pilot project named ‘Unnati’ which would be aimed at improvement of English communication skills among the students of various government run secondary schools in the state. The CM was of the view that if education could not equip the future generation to survive the challenges of the competitive world it is a waste and thus it is important to make students ready for the future.
Rawat has promised full monetary support for the project and made it clear that the whole project would get reviewed after three months. If the results came out to be satisfactory the Chief Minister has made it clear that this project would become an integral part of the state’s education system, which would help countless students to achieve confidence and self-esteem through learning the language in their secondary school education.
Making students comfortable while speaking in English is the motto of the project and hence the initial period of the project has been set to three months. The students in the government schools remain hesitant outright and thus this project might help them get their confidence back to speak up in the global language which is providing job opportunities to many at this competitive world.
State Education Minister Mantriprasad Naithani said that Hindi, Garhwali, Kumauni languages have their own importance but knowledge of good English is necessary for the bright future of children of today.
