New Delhi/IBNS: President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday highlighted the need of the nation to strive to reach global education standards by continuous reform of Indian educational systems.

"Our endeavour is to ensure that no child or youth is denied education. At the same time, we need to strive to reach global education standards by continuous reform of our educational systems," Kovind said in his Republic Day eve address to the nation.

"Even though the development of our educational institutions commenced soon after Independence, in an environment of scarcity of resources, our achievements in the field of education have followed a remarkable trajectory," he said.

He said: "In our tradition, educational institutions are respected as temples of learning. When our land was pushed into backwardness after the long colonial rule, it was education that emerged as a path to empowerment."

The President said in India knowledge has always been considered more valuable than power, fame or riches.
