NUEPA to assess time teachers spend on works other than teaching

Written By:

When a teacher at an education institution is burdened with activities other than teaching and spends most of his/her time in those activities, it is certainly a matter of concern because the students will be deprived of knowledge they are entitled to. The primary duty of a teacher is to impart knowledge and cultivate the young minds to absorb that knowledge for shaping their future.

Delivering a lecture or taking a class may appear to be easy on the surface, but it requires a meticulous preparation wedded with a careful research and a mindset to deliver an effective lecture. A teacher has to be prepared for the questions raised by the students. The answers may or may not be satisfying. If th answers are not understood by the students, the teacher has to get back to further research and study to come up with a more convincing and simple answer.

Keeping the above mentioned points in mind, the HRD Ministry is going to conduct a study in order to assess time spent by teachers in activities apart from teaching and those activities or time spent on them affects education. The HRD Ministry has assigned this job to National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA) according to Zee News.

According to the HRD Ministry for State, the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act states clearly that a teacher can be deployed only for decennial census, disaster relief duties or duties related to elections to the local authority or state legislatures or Parliament. Other than the aforementioned purposes, teachers should not be assigned to any other work which eats up on their time they are supposed to spend on research, preparation and teaching.

This is an important step taken by the HRD Ministry and it would definitely bring a much required change in the field of education. If all goes well, the teachers will be able to concentrate largely on the development of students and pay attention to their study related concerns individually.
