Officials of Arunachal Pradesh’s education department on Tuesday underlined the issues and challenges faced in the sector and presented their vision for countering these challenges in a review meeting.
The review meeting, held in presence of Arunachal Pradesh education minister Taba Tedir, was held at the conference hall of the directorate of higher and technical education in Itanagar.
Welcoming the minister, education secretary Madhu Rani Teotia briefed him on the various activities of all the directorates, RUSA, and ISSE.
Thereafter, the directorates of higher and technical education, secondary education, elementary education, integrated scheme for school education and engineer wing made a presentation each to the minister on their activities, performance and achievements.
While appreciating the efforts made by the department in providing value-based and quality education in the state, Tedir sought the creation of a better and congenial working environment in the department.
“The present government is giving topmost priority to education and health sectors and to law and order. For more streamlining of the education department, the cooperation from every officer and official is needed,” he said.
Keeping in view the number of college-going students of the state, Tedir discouraged the opening of more colleges and universities, particularly private universities in the state. Rather, he advised the strengthening of the existing colleges in terms of manpower and infrastructure.
The minster asked the department to improve the CBSE result particularly the Class X and XII examinations conducted by CBSE.
He also said all the cabinet decisions will be implemented in letter and spirit.
“The present government is following zero tolerance to corruption. Extend full cooperation in creating a corruption-free society beginning from education department,” Tedir said while assuring that he will look into the grievances of the officers of the department and directed for timely conduct of DPC.
Conduct of timely DPC is required to fill up the vacant posts in time. He also directed the filling up of vacant seats within six months.
“The mantra of the present government is to perform or perish. As such, everybody has to perform to make a vibrant society,” Tedir said.
