Punjab Government has taken a revolutionary decision with ongoing situation in Indian Politics. They have decided to change the “Caste or community based school names”. Punjab Government will identify those schools that have been named on the caste or community related names and will proceed to change their names. Punjab will rename them based on a Freedom Fighter, National leader or regional leader without any bias.
Educational Ministry of Punjab has announced this move and they have already identified 56 schools that can be renamed. They have stated that after long consideration they have arrived at this decision in order to promote equality among children and education should never be caste, creed or community based. Educational Ministry of Punjab further said that if a caste or community name is associated then division among children could be promoted with one feeling superior to another.
