LUCKNOW: Governor and Chancellor Anandiben Patel on Friday said it’s a matter of research and concern that despite getting equal resources and facilities in classrooms the performance of boys is way behind that of girls.
Addressing Lucknow University’s 65th convocation ceremony, Patel said, “In today’s convocation, 80% of medals have been won by girls and only 20% medals went to boys. The performance of these boys was the saving grace else girls would have swept all the medals.”
Patel asked the audience to give a standing ovation to the meritorious girls as their feat was a symbol of women empowerment. At the same time, governor called for a researach on why the success rate of both boys and girls was unequal and why male students were lagging in academics.
“2023 is the International Year of Millet. LU should conduct research on millet to create awareness about its health benefits and increase in production. Also, millet dishes should be cooked in girls’ hostels,” she said.
Speaking on the occasion, LU vice-chancellor Prof Alok Kumar Rai said, “Looking into three important aspects of education: globalized, interconnected and diversified, LU has passed new DLitt, PG, UG and PhD ordinances in accordance with the New Education Policy which inculcate multiple entry-exit schemes.”
