State governments are taking several steps to improve school education. Recently, the Assam government has asked all high schools, higher secondary schools, and senior secondary schools to display photographs of all teachers in classrooms. The order has been issued by Assam’s Director of Secondary Education Mamta Hojai to the institutional heads of all secondary schools in the state.
The August 17 order directed all school inspectors to issue directions to the heads of all institutions under their jurisdiction to display photographs of all teachers in classrooms in strong, good-quality frames as per the government’s directive. Hojai said that this order will be applicable in all high schools, higher secondary schools, and senior secondary schools.
According to Hojai, the main reason behind this move is to bring more transparency between teachers and parents. In case the parents want to meet the teachers and discuss the issues regarding their child. They cannot do this unless they know the teachers properly.
Mamta Hojai said that our main objective is to provide quality education to school students. Children may have some issues regarding the academic side. If the parents want to consult the teacher, they do not know each other. If a child has a problem, parents want to discuss it with the teachers. It becomes difficult if they don’t know who the teachers are. That’s why we have asked all institutional heads to display photographs of teachers in classrooms.
Assam government has taken many steps to improve education
This is one of the many steps taken by the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led Assam government in the education sector of the state. Last month, the Assam government directed the school education department to introduce English as the medium of instruction for science and maths for classes 6 to 12.
