Speaking at the district-level Teachers Day celebrations organised by Zilla Panchayat, Department of Public Education and Karnataka State Teachers Welfare Fund here on Saturday, he said government is considering the demands of the teachers. The government will implement education policy after consulting the education experts and teachers association.

The number of students in government schools are dwindling owing to the fascination towards English medium of education. In this era of competition, it is essential to learn English. However, at the same time, one has to give priority to Kannada.
“Education is essential for the country to develop. To realise the dream of Dr A P J Abdul Kalam to convert India into a developed country by 2020, one has to give priority to education. Teachers have a greater role to play in moulding the personality of the students,” he added.

MLA M P Appacchuranjan said teachers should become model to the students. They play a role in the future of the students.
