New Delhi, Jan 8 (UNI) Delhi Education Minister Arvinder Singh today stressed on the urgent need to improve the environment in Government schools to prompt students to perform better.
Talking to reporters after an inspection of Government schools in Kalkaji and CR Park, the education minister proposed to equip government schools with all the modern facilities which included new education buildings, classrooms, playgrounds, libraries, science laboratories, swimming pools, basketball courts, gymnasiums, amphitheatres, borewells and RO system for potable drinking water for the students.
He said these facilities are prerequisite for students to perform better not only in academics but in life also.
