Addressing a gathering at the inaugural of the CMR University campus in Bengaluru, Vice President Naidu stressed the need of 'innovating curricula, infrastructure, pedagogy, teaching and examination methodology and our technology tools so that the students are well prepared to face the challenges of 21st century,' stated an official release.

He was of the view that 'improving the quality of education, revamping the curriculum to teach Indian values and transforming classrooms into centres of joyful learning was the way forward.'

He expressed that good quality education was one of the most potent ways to reduce poverty, achieve gender equality, and create more jobs. "We have to keep improving the quality of education delivered and the classrooms have to be transformed into centres of joyful learning," he stated.

According to release, the Vice President called upon educational institutions and the private sector to collaborate and work hand in hand with the government to set higher benchmarks for education and training in the country.  He also urged them to make use of flagship programs like Skill India, Make in India, Start-Up India and Stand-Up India to skill and train the youth of the country and provide them with education and employment opportunities.

The release added that Innovation and Entrepreneurship were the twin engines that propel India to a new era of economic prosperity and social inclusion. He said that it was time to make India the favourable environment for innovation and the most attractive destination for enterprise.
