Indian school to send 100 students to US on next school year

The Indian Education Ministry said on Friday that its 100 students will be sent to the United States on the next school term in 2019-2020.

The ministry said the school will be a small one.

It said the number of Indian students is increasing.

In 2016, the government had given a green signal for students from the southern states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu to study at US colleges.

The move was seen as an attempt to diversify the pool of foreign students in India’s education sector and attract students from around the world.
