Online portal for govt teachers across Punjab to send new ideas

In a bid to bring sweeping reforms in school education system, the Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann held a special meeting with the Government School Principals at a private resort in Ludhiana to seek inputs from them to raise the bar of school education.

Chief Minister launched an online portal to seek ideas and suggestions from teachers for bringing out of box educational reforms. He said that teachers should send ideas online through this portal so as to change the conventional system of education to make education system paperless, digitally empowered and introduction of Parents Teacher Meet (PTM) etc.

Education Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer assured that views and suggestions from all the teachers are welcomed and every input would be meticulously discussed. School Education Minister also said that all meaningful ideas for making Punjab number one in the education sector would be implemented in all schools.

Divulging further, the Chief Minister said that to take our education to the next level our teachers would be sent on educational tours to Delhi Schools and even abroad for education training in batches to countries like Singapore, Switzerland, Finland and institutes like Harvard and Oxford etc. on government expenses. He said that the Delhi model of education would be implemented in Punjab besides the ideas of our teachers for strengthening the education system in the state.

Pointing out further, Bhagwant Mann said that his government would provide fulsome support to the teachers for making the current education system practically viable besides more relevant and beneficial in the day to day life.

The Chief Minister said that his government was committed to stop brain drain by bringing back Industry in the state where our youth would be provided enormous jobs. Therefore, special emphasis would be laid on imparting quality technical education instead of focusing on securing high percentage.

Bhagwant Mann said that NRIs were ready to adopt government schools but their money should be judiciously utilised for providing the advanced educational techniques to students, rather just building rooms.

Bhagwant Mann also announced annual awards for best government school teachers and principals. He said that every year 10 best performing teachers and principals would be honoured.
