Post Budget comment from Ms. Niru Agarwal, Trustee, Greenwood High International School

The state of education is often a healthy predictor of the country's overall development and well-being. The Union Budget 2021 will lead to the development of the education sector and the initiatives to treat education holistically for school children is a welcome move. We are glad that the new measures by the Government would bring about positive changes in the education system. 

The government has focused on improving quality of education and this would go a long way in rejuvenating school education. The overall focus of the budget has been to make education robust and responsive to students’ needs in terms of quality education in rural sector, skill development, research & development, employability & international collaboration to enhance technical knowledge. 

Education being the key instrument of social change, progress and upward mobility in India, the government needs to ensure that education sector continues to get the attention and funding it richly deserves. The challenge right now is not just producing students who will get jobs, but students who can thrive in rapidly changing environments.
