Academic experts suggested to government that it should lay emphasis on setting up national academies for teachers which will help in preventing the spread of coaching center culture and will shift the focus of students to learning instead of scoring high marks.
This advice came from various experts from various universities and other spheres. The government has put the new education policy draft in public domain and is asking for feedbacks and suggestions.
There are set cadres for every profession but there is none for teachers. Similarly, there are no national academies for imparting training to teachers. If we are not investing in this area, how can we expect to reap benefits?" R K Khandal, former V-C of Uttar Pradesh Technical University, said.
N K Goyal, President of CMAI Association of India Communication and Infrastructure, said, "There is tremendous pressure on students to score high marks rather than learn. This should be changed. Similarly, the process of normalizing the grades also needs a revamping."
Nupur Sharma, V-C, Delhi Women Technical university said "Coaching centres today have become shops, paving way for a new industry, where students continue to suffer due to lack of a focused approach."
