Young headmasters at Centre-run schools

Young headmasters at Centre-run schools

 A separate cadre of headmasters between ages 40 and 45 is on the anvil to provide young ‘leaders’ to the Centre-run primary and secondary schools.

The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry has decided to create such a cadre to improve quality and standard of government schools.

 “The government has decided to have a separate cadre of headmasters. A teacher becoming headmaster at the age of 40-45 will have a chance for another 15-20 years to lead (his or her) school,” HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said while addressing an event here on Tuesday.

This is one of the ‘important and essential’ reforms to be brought in the education sector to improve the quality and standards of the schools, he added.

More than 150 district and block level education officers from different parts of the country as well as faculties of the university attended the event organised to present the National Awards for Innovation in Educational Administration, instituted by the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA).
