If Delhi's deputy Chief Minister is to be believed, the national capital's education system is all set for a major overhaul. Manish Sisodia said that stress needs to be laid on proper training of the teachers.
While interacting at the conference organized on 'Innovation to make cities financially sustainable', he said that the present system gives least importance to the teachers and need to change. The conference was organized by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham).
Sisodia, who is also the education minister of Delhi, said, "Teachers play a primary role in the field of education, yet in our present system, they are least significant. In our system, education is imparted in a very unscientific manner and we are working towards changing it,"
He further added, "We are working towards promoting the role of a teacher as the pilot of the education system and everybody else, including the education minister, will act as a support staff. We need well-trained teachers in our schools."
He shared his deep concern about the pathetic condition of government schools in the capital and blamed the private schools for acting like a money spinning machine.
