THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Education Minister C Raveenranath has said that the government’s aim is to convert colleges into high-tech education centres within two years.  

“To realise this dream, there should be digital libraries, laboratories and class rooms. Colleges can be changed according to changing times only through modernisation,” he said after inaugurating the library room of Government Women’s College.

The minister said though Kerala is a role model in public education sector, it is not so in higher education sector. “This is possible only if academic standard rises along with the expansion of college infrastructure.  Academic progress of a student is different from high marks he or she obtains in examinations. The higher education should be the one that prompts students to go into the depths of subjects. Those who study peripherally may be able to score high marks but studies become research when the students divert their thoughts through the path of quest.”

The minister compared libraries to the heart of a human being. “We need to foster libraries that impart energy on all sectors but in recent times libraries had lost its significance. The government recently allotted Rs 8.5 crore each for 52 colleges as part of its Public education protection mission only to give a boost to libraries,” the minister said.
