Govt Schools in MP to be Merged

Government schools in Madhya Pradesh within 15 km radius will be merged as part of the CM Rise school initiative to provide quality education in state-level schools on par with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian Certificat of Secondary Education (ICSE). There may not be any teacher retrenchment in the process. The integrated schools will have smart classrooms, interschool activities and field trips. The new educational model is meant to groom students for a professional career. In the first phase of the merger, schools within a 3 and 5 km radius will be merged. The limit is 5 primary and 8 middle-level schools with 1248 students and 25 teachers. In the second phase, schools built within 10 km will be merged, with a limit of 13 primaries and 3 middle schools with 710 students and 32 teachers.
