Chief Minister N Biren Singh has asked government school teachers to set a target to achieve cent percent pass percentage next year.
The chief minister was speaking as the chief guest at the Graduation Day ceremony of Phase 2 training-cum-valedictory Programme of 10-Day Induction Training Programme for teachers and headmasters of government schools at TG Higher Secondary School today.
Biren said the government will also honour and award teachers of government schools which had secured high pass percentage in the recent HSLC Examinations. He lauded and congratulated government school teachers as government schools recorded a high pass percentage of above 60 per cent in the recently declared High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) Examination 2022 results.
The government strives to provide good quality education for everyone, he said, explaining that the School Fagathansi Mission was launched in 2018 with the same objective of improving school education.
The chief minister said the School Fagathansi Mission has been very useful and since its launch, admission in government schools has increased tremendously. He said that around 180 schools have been covered under the mission for better infrastructure and overall improvement.
Biren also appreciated the energy and confidence shown by the teachers during the function and said the teachers should approach their students with the same zeal as shown today. He said, a disciplined teacher will only produce good and disciplined students.
He acknowledged the presence of smart, energetic teachers with a “Ready to do something” zeal in the teachers today and said the credit should go to the STAR Education team.
"Today we could consider STAR Education policy as a success and congratulated the Minister, commissioner, director and their teams involved in the programme," he said.
Meanwhile, the chief minister also urged all to wear mask and take COVID vaccination.
Education Minister Th Basanta thanked the chief minister for leading from the front to bring about a sea of change in the State’s education sector.
He appealed to the teachers participating the training to inspire their students and fellow teachers and further said that the top priority should be the students and how to make students improve their performances.
