Dotasara said the government has decided to open English medium schools considering the importance of language for children of the state.
It will give a chance to children coming from all sections of the society to study in English medium school, he said in a statement.
He said that on the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the state government has decided that each district will have a school of up to 8th in the name of Mahatma Gandhi.
Aer the Congress government came into power in Rajasthan, the State board textbooks again underwent changes suggested by the committee formed by the Education Department.

decided to revoke some orders floated by the previous government which also included the
revision in the textbooks, discard the picture of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay in the oicial
letterheads and will use Ashoka emblem once again.
