While laying a foundation stone for a model school to be developed under the Mahendra Ratna Secondary School at Birtamod-5 today, the Minister insisted that discourse, reforms and revolution were needed in education sector.
"Public education should be the means of eliminating a class system," he said, adding that the concept of model school was envisaged to enhance trust of community schools.

He urged the schools not to impose study but identify students' interest first and cater education accordingly. (RSS)
