To reform the gloomy education scenario in Arunachal Pradesh, a joint coordination meeting adopted several resolutions to work in tandem with all stakeholders of the state.
The meeting held at Itanagar on June 20 resolved that maintenance of existing infrastructure in schools may be accorded top priority while expansion of infrastructure should be made as per the growth and need of the institutions, a copy of the document made available to the press said here today.
The meeting, attended by elected representatives including ministers, parliamentary secretaries, MLAs, municipal and panchayat leaders also resolved that new schools should be opened up only after construction of sufficient classrooms and posting of teachers.
Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, while addressing the meeting, exuded hope that the meaningful suggestions that have evolved should emerge as policy guidelines for the government.
