Today, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today announced a mega Parents-Teachers-Meeting (PTM) which will be conducted on July 30, 2016 in all the government schools across the nation.
As per the directions of the Deputy Chief Minister, government schools will celebrate the mega PTM as a festival with full enthusiasm. Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia also has the education portfolio of the nation's capital. He requested the parents of 16 lakh students studying in government schools to celebrate the mega PTM. This initiative is undertaken in order to make parents of the students of the government schools students as "stakeholders" of education.
Sisodia said, "The PTM will be held twice a year to make parents feel proud that they are also part of the several initiatives being taken by the AAP government. We have constituted welcoming teams in schools for the parents so that they feel proud and for this, government has set aside funds. The timing of PTM will be different in morning and evening shift schools. It is important to communicate the initiatives of Delhi Government in education, so that parents utilize these schemes properly."
He also added, "PTMs were supposed to happen at government schools, but they weren't, excluding exceptions, adding that the thought behind this mega event is to open the gates of schools for the parents of the children and leave behind closed spaces in government schools. We want to make PTMs a regular affair to keep parents in loop. At this meet, parents can seek details of performance of their children and get updated with all activities and initiatives taken by the government. The government was improving quality of education in its schools everyday through policies, new infrastructure including CCTVs, classrooms and furniture. Government has directed all its senior officials of the education department including directors, deputy directors, and assistant director to hold a meeting with parents of government schools' students from 12 to 1 PM on Friday every week to address their issues."
Initiatives like these will definitely help the underprivileged students to level with the students of the private schools and it will also help the government schools to raise the standards of education and meet the global standards.
