Tripura: English medium school to be setup in every block by next year

AGARTALA: The Tripura government has decided to set up at least one English medium school in every block by next year, Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty said.

"To educate the children properly and to prepare them at par with the national standard, state government would ensure at least one English medium school in all the 58 blocks in the state by next year," he said while addressing a meeting of school students. He said that the state government already started works to set up an English medium science college here.

"To provide quality education both in urban and rural areas, adequate numbers of qualified teachers are being posted and infrastructure of the schools are also being developed both in urban, rural and remote areas," the Minister added.
