Hetauda, April 30 (RSS): Acting Chief Minister of State-3, Salikram Jamakattel has admitted that the education sector has not received proper attention for its development noting mismatch between education system and country need.
He said this at an interaction on educational quality improvement of community schools organised by the Directorate of Education Development under the State-3 Ministry of Social Development.
Jamakattel stressed the need to include at least five technical subjects, including agriculture, tourism and cooperative as compulsory subjects while framing education sector plan.
"Our development from now onward should be rural municipality centric. Most of the schools in rural municipality do not have library, sports space and computer lab. This is the area to be focused", he added.
Calling for the local governments to spur investment on education, he said development was not possible until change in the model of development.
He also urged all stakeholders to perform in a result-oriented manner. Also speaking on the occasion, State-Minister for Social Development Yubaraj Dulal said the education sector needs reforms in multiple areas adding that the collaboration between teacher and guardians should work together to bring about reforms in education.
