Schools should be linked to industrial skills: Minister Sharma
KATHMANDU: Finance Minister Janardan Sharma has said schools should be linked to industrial skills.
Addressing the National Council of All Nepal Unified Teachers Association on Wednesday, Minister Sharma viewed students could be oriented on agriculture, farms as well as a garden. Educated human resources help increase production, he added.
The Minister further stated that community capital would be created by focusing the industrial activities in school, which he argued would be the basis of socialism.
"Now, we have to establish mega schools, focusing on technological education. Physical infrastructures should be constructed where thousands of students can be taught at the same place,” he mentioned.
