In North East Region we are running 663 Schools in 7 states. All these schools were set up with local support. Now, with growing demand, it is felt that the schools must be upgraded- to add highr classes and also to offer a better infrastructure to impart quality education. New classrooms and upgraded labs is the need of the day. Toilets have to be constructed on priority; this will also go a long way to reduce drop-outs of girl students. A team has been formed in Guwahati to oversee the develepoment of schools in Nort East.
