“In January 2016, more than 10,000 schools became digital. Now at the end of June this year, more than 63500 schools have gone digital.

The CM said that advance educational initiatives are being implemented to enhance academic quality and that the efforts are to be taken to raise the study standard of students.

Initiatives like Basic Reading Ability Development, will help teachers to know the capacity of the students, he said. Sindhudurg and Ratnagiri districts are at the forefront according to the National Performance Survey, he said.
