Members of Arunachal Pradesh Teachers Association (APTA) called on Chief Minister today.
The APTA requested the Chief Minister Pema Khandu for immediate review of the bye-law of Integrated Scheme for School Education (ISSE)/Samagra Siksha Abhiyan and also discussed on other issue related to the welfare of teachers in the state.
The Chief Minister assuring to look into the demand of APTA advised the teachers to be sincere and punctual in their assigned duties as they have important role in building the society by providing knowledge and wisdom.
The CM also sought valuable suggestion from the association to improve the education standard of the state. He said the state govt took the right step by abolishing the ‘no-detention policy’ as it was doomed to fail. He said the poor performance of the recent Class X CBSE examinations was well anticipated as no fail system deteriorated the learning levels of the students.
To improve the education standard in the state, the CM said the govt has re-introduced the fail system, as it will motivate the students to learn and perform better.
On shortage of subject teachers, the CM said recruitment will soon be conducted by the APPSC to fill up the vacant posts. He also said rationalization of teachers postings will be implemented for equitable distribution of teachers throughout the state. He said textbooks are being made available with the schools in adequate numbers through direct procurement from NCERT.
Further the education sector has been decentralized with a society under the chairmanship of Deputy Commissioner to take care and meet all the requirements at the district level, the CM informed.
To strengthen the capacity of the teachers, the CM said he will have regular monitoring of the teachers training programme.
