FM Nirmala Sitharaman on the education industry.
“The emphasis of the government on past mile access is extremely encouraging for the edtech sector. This involves digitization of content and training and skill development becoming part of every sector. Coming to the k12 school education bit, “We are thrilled to see the government’s commitment to empowering students through innovative and futuristic learning solutions. The establishment of a National Digital Library for children and adolescents, physical libraries at panchayat levels, and a focus on teacher training are all steps in the right direction. As a company dedicated to providing cutting-edge edtech solutions, we are particularly excited about the plan to set up Centers of Excellence in Artificial Intelligence in top educational institutions. Additionally, the allocation for providing age-appropriate reading materials to inculcate reading habits is a step towards promoting literacy and lifelong learning. The commitment to establishing 38,800 teachers and support staff for the 740 Eklavya Model Residential Schools over the next three years is a major boost for tribal students who will now have access to quality education and opportunities. With this budget, we see a promising future for education in India and look forward to supporting the government in its efforts to provide a brighter future for all students in the country” -by Ms. Ritika Kumar, Founder & CEO of STEM Metaverse.
