To mark Teacher’s Day next Monday, The Indian Express tracks down national award-winning teachers from last year and from this year’s shortlist to find that education reform is being powered more by individual teachers innovating in small ways rather than the institution
Sources told The Indian Express that the meeting was held to share the Sangh’s inputs on the new education policy and to plan measures to “instil nationalism, pride and ancient Indian values in modern education”.
According to ICHR Chairman Y S Rao, the purpose of the seminar is to “present the findings of recent research in history and its allied disciplines and discuss their relevance to update Indian history in respect of its remote past”.
Govt has recommended that UGC conduct a probe into at least five charges, including wasteful expenditure on the NAAC visit, arbitrary introduction of a supernumerary quota in admissions for wards of university staff.
The suggestion is significant against the backdrop of the recent protests in universities such as JNU and HCU. The HRD Ministry is currently drafting a policy document based on the report of this panel.
