Education Ministry to name residential schools, hostels after Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose

@EduMinOfIndia
The Ministry of Education has decided to name residential schools and hostels funded under Samagra Shiksha of the Ministry as Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose residential schools or hostels. Ministry of Education said, the association of these schools with Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose will act as an inspiration to the children and also motivate the teachers, staff and administration to enable them to achieve high standards of excellence. This will also help create awareness about the facility of these Residential Schools and Hostels in difficult areas and inspire these schools to achieve high standards of quality education.

The Ministry of Education under Samagra Shiksha provides financial assistance to states and UTs for opening and running of Residential Schools and Hostels in hilly terrain, small and sparsely populated areas for children who are in need of shelter and care, in addition to the provision of regular schools. The objective is to ensure universal enrolment and provide schooling facilities in areas which are sparsely populated, mostly tribal areas where opening of schools may not be viable and for children in urban areas who are in need of care and protection.

The residential facilities are also provided to child labour rescued, migrant children who belong to poor landless families, children without adult protection, separated from their families, internally displaced persons, and children from the areas of social and armed conflict and natural calamities. Preference is given to Educationally Backward Blocks, Left Wing Extremism affected districts, Special Focus Districts and the Aspirational districts identified by NITI Aayog.

In these residential schools and hostels, in addition to regular school curriculum, interventions for all round development of children such as provision of Specific Skill Training, physical self-defense, medical care, community participation, monthly stipend are also made available to children.  A total of 1063 residential facilities which include 383 residential Schools and 680 Hostels have been sanctioned to States and UTs so far.
