Improving the quality of education and learning outcomes are directly linked to improvement in the pupil-teacher ratio and in the training of teachers.

This was the consensus that emerged in the Inter-State Council deliberations that took place on Saturday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and chief ministers of different states agreed that the focus should shift to improving classroom processes and quality of school infrastructure. All these should be achieved in a time-bound manner, officials said.

"But today, we should, in addition, focus on the quality of education and learning outcomes also. Technology can greatly help in this. We should proactively take steps to bridge the disparities in the standards between the better endowed and poorly-endowed schools," Modi said.
