Minister stresses rapid change in education sector

By Correspondent

TEZPUR, April 6 � Stressing quality education for all sections of society, State Health and Education Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma today gave a clarion call to all concerned to cooperate with the agencies concerned including the state education department for reformation in the state education system.

Dr Sarma was addressing a gathering at Silver Jubilee LP School here on the occasion of its platinum jubilee function held with a two-day programme from today. Urging the teachers to dedicate themselves in creating a better educational environment in the government schools, he further said that if parents could be convinced that a child can be developed studying even in a vernacular medium school through the quality education, then medium would never be a constraint for the educational development of a child.

Affirming that a rapid change in the education sector is an urgent need, the Education Minister said for an overall development of the students, three basic features of education ie., teachers, students and the guardians are to work in a well coordinated manner.

Denying the argument that vernacular medium schools cannot perform well, he pointed out that educational development depends upon a capable or a skilled teacher and not on the infrastructure or building of a school. Calling Silver Jubilee LP School an exception, he said there are still a number of government schools in the state where the educational environment is yet to develop. In such schools the children are pathetically deprived of their real education.

�The period from 1975 to 2011 can be considered an era of bad education in the state education sector. For the sake of rectification the trend of politicalisation is to be eradicated,� he said.

Expressing his total dissatisfaction with the involvement of politically influenced persons in education system, he said that if a radical change is sought the education system must be free from politics. �The appointment system of the teachers must be free from the political clutches� he said.

Stressing appointment of teachers in government schools on merit basis, he said within May a total of 28,000 more teachers will be appointed through TET and their services will be renewed after every seven years of their service through a qualifying test.

Laying stress on science and technology, Dr Sarma said to boost the morale of students of government schools every year a total of one lakh students of primary and elementary levels would be provided with scholarship of Rs 5000 each.

Former education minister Brindaban Goswami while addressing the mammoth gathering, lauded the contribution of the historic Silver Jubilee School towards creating many well-known personalities of the state. He appreciated the unmatched contribution of the founder headmaster of the school Benudhar Saikia because of whom a unique educational environment became possible in the school. �A message of renaissance of faith upon the vernacular medium school was established by the then headmaster of the school Benudhar Saikia,� he said.

Rajen Barthakur, the local MLA said Silver Jubilee School should be considered as an ideal platform for all and also assured that he would extend a helping hand for further development of the school.

Ex-student of the school Atanu Bhuyan, a well-known businessman releasing the souvenir of the programme Gorima, recalled his childhood days at the school. The function was attended by ex- student, Dipak Chakrabarty, managing director, Numaligarh Oil Refinery, ex- student, Nayanmmani Bora, CMD of OIL among others.
