Bhopal: In order to improve infrastructure of school education in the state, the Madhya Pradesh government has decided to build residential complexes for the teachers within the premises of the village schools.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan made the announcement while attending a function to mark Teachers’ Day on Monday.

“The step will help teachers to stay close to schools and avoid unnecessary traveling for their job,” he explained.

The Chief Minister also said that he would not allow commercialization of school education in the state.

“To control the private education centers, the state government would very soon constitute Private Education Regulatory Commission,” he said adding, “It is the responsibility of the teacher to build a good character, honest and patriotic human being.”

Apart from the steps regarding improving education in the state, the CM also announced scheme for betterment of girl child and her parents.

The state government would launch ‘Beti Bachao Abhiyan’ on October 5 (first day of the Navratra festival) under which parents above 55 years of age with a single girl child would be provided with a fixed pension.

The new scheme was announced in view of the adverse sex-ratio in the state.

Speaking on the issue of corruption, Chauhan said, “Corruption can’t be curbed merely by formulating laws.”
