Lucknow, Feb 26 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh government today admitted in the State Assembly that the standard of education in the Non-Aided Secondary schools was much better than the aided ones.
Replying to a question, Secondary Education Minister Rangnath Mishra said though these non-aided schools charge more fees, their education standard is much higher than those given grant by the government.
Lamenting that illegal copying was the main reason for the degradation of the system in the government aided schools, the minister also announced that a 'Vocational Educational Council' would be set up to upgrade the deteriorating standard of education.
Mr Mishra said at present, there are 5,000 aided schools and 450 government schools in UP, besides over 10,000 non-funded recognised schools were functioning.
When the members demanded that synonymous with the CBSE and ICSE, the examination pattern of the UP Board should be objective, he said such pattern would only promote mass copying.
He also reiterated that the government would not allow mass copying during the board examination, but said no student would be arrested for this.
