He also felicitated teaching fraternity for their utmost dedication and commitment to ensure better results.

The Minister said that since the beginning of this session, Punjab government had taken several path-breaking initiatives to bring reforms in the functioning of schools and marked improvements in standard of education so as to provide quality education to the students.  In order to achieve this goal, four zones were created in the state and consistent monitoring had been done at school, block and district level in which District Education Officers played an key role to make this program a grand success.
