Imparting quality education to students is a must and there should be more and more innovative ways to build up a new generation for a culturally rich nation like India, Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister, Prakash Javadekar said today while addressing the foundation day celebrations of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) in New Delhi today.
The minister lauded the role of the Sangathan in imparting quality education and said that KVS is now a brand in the field of quality education. He also announced the convening of a National Conference in March, 2017 to devise ways to implement innovative practices. Experts and exponents of education will be invited to the conference to share their experiences and ideas for improving the education scenario.
Javadekar congratulated the award winning teachers and non-teaching staff of KVS for their performance and called upon them to usher in the onerous task of future building of students who come to school for fulfilling a long cherished dream of receiving quality education in a more concrete and positive manner. “There are dreams and aspirations in the eyes of every child who comes to school and fulfilling them should only be the motive,” he said.
He referred to one of his experiences of a conference where 1000 teachers were invited and were asked to suggest possible reforms in education through zero investment. He said that more than 500 ideas and proposals were generated. He asked the authorities to consider positively these innovative ideas given by teachers for any possible and viable improvement in the field of education.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister of State, HRD Ministry, Upendra Kushwaha, highlighted the need to ensure that quality education is imparted to every section of society to enable it to give its best. “The role of teachers in this regard is to produce personalities such as Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi, which could be the only criteria of education,” he said.
A total of 104 teachers and non-teaching staff from all over the country were awarded and felicitated.
