Quality of education to determine empowerment of nations: Mufti

Asserting that quality of human resource will determine empowerment of nations in future, Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Wednesday outlined the importance of excellence in education so that our youth get accustomed to modern methods of teaching to cope with greater challenges ahead in the field of academics. 

          He said technology has shrunk world into a global village where competition is becoming tougher by the day. “I wanted to become a doctor but for the fact that science stream was not available in this school, I could not pursue my dream,” he said after returning to his alma mater to inaugurate Boys Higher Secondary School Bijbehara as a Model School.

          The Chief Minister was addressing huge congregations after inaugurating three higher secondary schools as Model Schools at Bijbehara, Ranibagh and Brakpore, in Anantnag district, where he was given rousing reception by students and teachers alike. 


          While J&K Bank has taken up Bijbehara and Ranibagh schools under CSR, the school at Brakpore has been adopted by the Chief Minister under his CDF.
