Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Schools launched in Maharashtra

Maharashtra Government led by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has launched the 'Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Schools' for students in rural areas.

The initiative was launched to commemorate the 94th birth anniversary of Former Late PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee which was on 25th December 2018.

Initially, 13 Zilla Parishad (ZP) schools would be part of the international board and it would be expanded in the coming years.

The Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Schools are affiliated to the Maharashtra International Education Board (MIEB). 

MIEB set up by the state government with an aim to achieve higher education standards. The curriculum of these schools will be in the mother tongue. The curriculum is not a copy-paste curriculum but drafted by a team of experts.

With this, students in the rural areas will get the education of international standards as part of the state government's continuous efforts towards value education.

CM Devendra Fadnavis proclaimed the improvisations have been made with the same government machinery, teachers, infrastructure, but with innovative solutions. There is a reverse migration, with many students from English-medium schools returning to ZP schools, with this international board giving it a boost.
