BHOPAL :  Minister of State for school education Deepak Joshi on Wednesday instructed Additional Chief Secretary SR Mohanti to convene a counselling for parents before MPBSE 10th Board results so that students would not commit suicide. The results are likely to be out by middle of the May.

“Parents have to be motivated not to pressurise their children for more marks as Mahatma Gandhi was never a meritorious student”

Minister Joshi said, “Parents have to be motivated not to pressurize their children for more marks as Mahatma Gandhi was never a meritorious student. Similarly was the case with former President late APJ Abdul Kalam. So schools as well as parents will have to create conducive atmosphere so that students would not be under pressure and take extreme step.”

Make khadi school uniforms compulsory

Minister of State for School Education, Deepak Joshi has written to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan to make Khadi mandatory as school dress across the state. Joshi maintains that Union Minister Giriraj Singh is also planning to make Khadi the dress code in schools to promote Khadi clothes.

It should be made mandatory that a pair of uniform of school children in the state should be of Khadi.

Joshi said Khadi is being publicised across the country and it would be better to begin use of Khadi from schools first.
