Revamping Community Education in Lahan Municipality

The recent wave of educational improvements in the community schools of Lahan municipality is a testament to the transformative power of dedicated leadership, strategic resource allocation, and community involvement. With continuous monitoring by the city education branch and public representatives, the community has begun to witness a promising shift in their education sector.

The Power of Investment

The Lahan municipality has underscored the importance of education by allocating the largest budget to this sector. This financial commitment has facilitated numerous beneficial changes including:

  • Increased supply of teachers
  • Construction of robust school walls
  • Creation of zinc-free school buildings
  • Salary raises for child development teachers and school employees
  • Regular monthly meetings for principals
  • Intensive monitoring efforts

These strategic investments have significantly contributed to the overall improvement of public schools.

Active Leadership and Enhanced Salaries

Lahan's Mayor, Mahesh Prasad Choudhary, is leading the educational revolution in the community. He has pledged a robust budget of 60 million for the education sector this year. Under his leadership, the salaries of child development teachers have increased from 7,000 to 17,000, and school assistants now earn 15,000. This bold move is an initiative unheard of in other parts of the country. Additionally, the municipality has created opportunities for inclusivity by hiring 125 teachers, including those with disabilities.

Improving Physical and Educational Conditions

During his visit to Lahan-10 Shree Janata Basic School Bairia Gudigoon Lahan, Mayor Choudhary emphasized the importance of collective responsibility in improving the physical and educational conditions of community schools. He envisions Lahan municipality as an inspiring model for other regions through its transformative public school conditions.

Community Response and Continued Improvement

Arvind Kumar Das, the headmaster of Shri Janata Madhyamik Vidyalaya So Samiti Gadha, praised the initiative, attributing the improved educational landscape to regular nutritious meals, active principals, regular training for teachers, and necessary support provided by the municipality. This comprehensive approach towards educational upliftment reflects the municipality's commitment to fostering an environment of learning and growth.
