Teachers to be made accountable: Javadekar
HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar on Sunday said school teachers will be made accountable for their work under the new education policy, being formulated after a gap of 29 years.

In his message on the eve of the Teachers’ Day, he noted that the future of the nation rested in the hands of the teachers. As the quality of the education remains to be a challenge in the country, it is responsibility of the teachers to play a key role in imparting “a good education to their pupils.”

The new policy would seek to empower the teachers with better pre-service and in-service training to help them achieve the target. It will also have provisions to recognize their “good work with rewards and appreciation,” he added.

“Education has been made accessible to every one under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan but providing a quality education to children is still a big challenge. The future of the nation is in the hands of our teachers. Therefore the new education policy will be dedicated to the nation with (provisions for) an improved pre-service and in-service teachers training programmes, appreciation to the outstanding contributions of the teachers and fixing of their responsibility,” the Union minister said. Over 330 teachers from different states are to be felicitated by President Pranab Mukherjee for their outstanding contribution in the field on the occasion of the Teachers Day on Monday.

Congratulating awardee teachers, the HRD minister said the national awards to be felicitated to those selected for this year were only “some of the many eminent good teachers” who have done “exceedingly well in their field.”
