Opening new avenues for school principals and teachers, the Delhi government announced that they would be sent to foreign institutions of academic repute to improve the quality of teaching in government schools.
“Principals and teachers in Delhi government schools will also get to undergo training akin to the way teachers in the best schools of the world are trained. For this, they can be sent to foreign universities, to IITs, IIMs, etc. Teachers’ training will be done in the best institutions in the world, so that they also feel that their training is being invested in,” said Education Minister Manish Sisodia.
The minister stressed on the need for making teachers to undergo leadership training and states that government school teachers were only “getting to attend seminars” at State Council Educational Research and Training, while speaking at a meeting of School Management Committee (SMC) members.
He said that the government had worked hard on improving the infrastructure of government schools in its first year, and will now focus on improving the quality of education in Delhi government schools through teacher training.
