Govt schools are lagging behind, admits Siddu
While the world is rapidly moving ahead in terms of technology, science and globalisation, similar changes in government schools still seem to be a long way off, lamented Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

He was speaking at the national conference of the All India Primary Teachers Federation (AIPTF) here on Saturday.

 “There is a need to provide quality education to all to usher in equality in the society. Determination to bring about a change should be made in accordance with the needs of the modern state,” said Siddramaiah.

Teachers’ responsibility
The chief minister said that while children of the rich go to private schools, children from poor and middle-class backgrounds go to public schools. Therefore providing quality education in public school should be the responsibility of the teachers, he added.

 Primary and Secondary Education Minister Kimmane Ratnakar, freedom fighter H S Doreswamy, Commissioner of Public Instruction K S Sathyamurthy, All India Primary Teachers’ Federation president S Rampal Singh and Primary School Teachers' Association State president Basavaraj Gurikar among others were present.

A number of teachers from Kerala, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh attended the conference. The national conference will conclude on Sunday.
