IMPHAL, June 17 - In a move to streamline the education system in Manipur and also to control the mushrooming of private schools and coaching centres, the Manipur Private Schools (Registration) Bill, 2017 and Manipur Coaching Institute (Control and Regulation) Bill, 2017 would be placed in the next State Assembly session.
This was disclosed by Chief Minister N Biren Singh while speaking at the prize distribution function for top rank holders of class X and XII examinations conducted by Board of Secondary Education, Manipur (BoSEM) and Council of Higher Secondary Education, Manipur (COHSEM) here on Saturday.
Urging the government teachers to put in serious effort towards improving the condition of Government educational institutes, Singh said that parents nowadays are spending huge amounts of money for children�s education. The situation has resulted mainly due to emergence of coaching/tuition culture and degradation of Government educational institutes, he added.
As one of the initial steps for bringing improvement in the education sector, completion of 50 schools had been included in the 100 days programme of the new Government. The Government is also planning to introduce vocational training in 40 colleges soon, the Chief Minister said.
The Government is also planning to bring out a transparent transfer and posting policy for teachers and head of institutions under the Directorate of Education (S) as soon as possible, he added. The Chief Minister launched a website namely, www.edusuggest.in, which will connect all stakeholders to foster decision making and public participation in the education sector.
