Gogoi for improving quality of education in Assam

By Pti

Guwahati, Jan 23: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has directed district and block education officials to improve the standard and quality of education in the state.

While inaugurating a two-day state conference on 'Educational Planning and Administration for District and Block Education Officers of Assam', Gogoi asked the officers to put in their effort and energy towards improving the quality of education.

"Mere enrollment is not enough. Efforts must be directed towards improving the standard and quality of education. As our children are our assets, the responsibility lies on your shoulders. The state's future hinges on you," he said.

Gogoi also said a proper evaluation of the performance of the officials at the district and block levels would be carried out with incentives given to those who perform well and even sent to good educational institutions abroad for training.

The Chief Minister, however, cautioned that officials faring poorly would be made accountable. "Grading system would be put in place to evaluate their performances," he said.

Underscoring the need for enhancing the capacity building of teachers to improve the quality of education, Gogoi said his government would set up an institute on the lines of National University of Educational Planning and Administration and tie up with good institutions to impart quality training to teachers.

Asking the education officials and inspectors of schools to go for regular inspection of schools to improve the standard of education, he said, "Through inspection we can assess the performance of the teachers and make them more accountable".

Gogoi also underlined the need for proper management and planning to bring about the desired changes in the education scenario.
