Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said that girls have made progress to achieve the fourth Sustainable Development Ziel (SDG4), which is high-quality training, thanks to the brilliant success in the CBSE Class 10 review report. The SDG4 aims at ensuring equitable and equal quality education and providing opportunities for all to prepare for life.
Quality education is one of 17 universal SDGs in the Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030. At the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015, 193 Member States adopted the SDGs. Gender equality, industry, innovation, infrastructure, affordability, and clean energy are among other goals.
‘Girls have performed better than boys in Class 10 and Class 12 exercises this year in the CBSE board exams. Class 12 exams had 92.15% of total students, which was 6% higher than boys’ pass levels and 3.17% of students in Class 10 were better than boys.
“Praise to share that girls lead the way and speed up progress in the direction of SDG 4. Girls again outperformed children in Class 10 CBSE exams with impressive performances. In comparison to 90.14% of boys in the entire country, 93.31% of young girls have been promoted, “Mr. Pokhriyal said.
NITI Aayog is responsible for coordinating SDG work in India. In 2018, the SDG index report was released, in which Kerala led in health, hunger reduction, gender equality, and quality education.
