“The government will plant as many saplings as there will be enrolments in government schools as part of ‘entrance festival’ in the state,” Dotasara said.

He urged the Education Department authorities to work with commitment.

Dotasara asserted that there has been a significant increase in the number of government schools in the state and over 76 per cent posts of teachers have been filled in all districts of the state.

Rajasthan High Court Justice Sandeep Mehta, who also addressed the workshop, expressed the need to find out the reason behind students dropping out of schools and work accordingly.

He said that as per a recent MHRD report on education, lakhs of students drop out every year and the biggest reason behind it is “child labor”.

Such children should be identified and education opportunities should be provided to them, Mehta added.
