Children of VIPs skip government schools to avoid load: Shivraj

IANS  |  Bhopal 

Chief Minister on Tuesday said the load on state-run schools will go up if the children of politicians and officers study there.

Chouhan was speaking at a "Meet the Press" programme, held on completion of 11 years of his rule.

As he talked of his government's achievements in public health and education, a reporter asked why the children of politicians and officers do not study in schools or go to hospitals.

In response, the Chief Minister said: "If they (children of politicians and officers) study there (schools), the load on these schools will further increase."

Apparently realising he had made a slip, he quickly added: "We will try to find ways to improve the quality of education in government-run schools keeping your observation in mind."

The children of several officers and politicians in study either outside the state or abroad.

Also, most go to costly private hospitals for treatment instead of visiting any hospital. Some are said to never opt for treatment within the state.

Although the Chief Minister denied that a large number of schools have no teachers, he accepted that some had just one teacher each.
