NEW DELHI, JUNE 20: Highlighting the importance of education for development of Aspirational Districts selected by the NITI Aayog, Minister of Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar has urged District Education Officers (DEO) to play a key role in transforming them into developed districts.

Addressing the workshop of District Education Officers (DEOs), DIETs, SCERTs, State Nodal Officers and Central Ministries on ‘Transformation of Aspirational Districts’ Javadekar urging the DEOs said that unless we develop education properly, these districts will not develop. No nation will develop without education; similarly no district will develop without education.

He said that the real challenge is to make government schools better. He further said that under the Samagra Siksha, funds will not be a problem for the development of education in the inspirational districts.

Prime Minister, Narendra Modi launched the Transformation of Aspirational Districts- programme in January 2018 to transform over 100 districts in 28 States. These districts have been ranked on 49 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) across five sectors by NITI Aayog. Education is one of the sectors with 30% weight attached.

Javadekar said that key performance indicators in education sectors are transition from Primary to Upper Primary and Upper Primary to Secondary.
