Principal Correspondent/Ranchi : During the transition period of the mission, there was commendable co-operation for tribals, backwards, minorities and others. If we look at the level of education in Jharkhand, the mission has contributed more than 50%. Education is being imparted with discipline and respect in the Mission School and College. Today Gossner College completes its 50 golden years, best of luck to all the students and teachers. The result of good education being given here is that 27 departments and thousands of students are studying in the college. Teachers are playing a big role in shaping the children. Chief Minister Shri Hemant Soren said these things. The Chief Minister was speaking as the chief guest at the 50th Golden Jubilee celebrations of Gossner College.

Jharkhand is facing the brunt of lack of education

Chief Minister said that the backwardness of Jharkhand is suffering only because of education. Important steps have been taken by the government in rural and urban areas for better education in the state. Jharkhand was trapped in the infection for the last one and a half years. Now time is back to normal. Education was also affected by this. Online classes have had positive and negative effects. This is a challenge for the kids but the fight against this epidemic in a state like Jharkhand is commendable.
