Patna: After Time magazine, Newsweek has taken note of the initiative of mathematician Anand Kumar’s 'Super 30' and included his school in the list of four most innovative schools in the world in its latest edition.

According to the US magazine Newsweek, the effort of Anand Kumar for the underprivileged students is "incredible" as his help of educational and moral support has facilitated the poor students study almost 16 hours every day and qualify the entrance test of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), known as toughest test in India.

Time Magazine had earlier this year selected Kumar's school - Super 30 - in the list of Best school of Asia 2010.

When contacted, Kumar said it had further emboldened his strength to guide the underprivileged to deliver.

"This is a great recognition, which will not only motivate me, but also the students to do even better. I am happy that my small initiative has brought Bihar on the international map for positive reasons," he said.

Special envoy of the US President, Brack Obama, Rashad Hussian who visited Super 30 had described it as "the best of India".

In the last three years, all 30 students of 'Super 30' have made it to the IIT JEE.
