Govt needs to upgrade teachers training courses: AGGRUSA
The Navhind Times
The All Goa Government Recognised Unaided Schools Association (AGGRUSA), welcoming the decision of the education department to put a stop to the recruitment of untrained teachers by the unaided schools – from class I to class XII – from the forthcoming academic year, stated that this decision would be more fruitful if the government upgrades the teachers training courses like BEd and DEd to ensure comprehensive development of teachers.
The founding president of AGGRUSA, Deepak Khaitan, speaking to ‘The Navhind Times’ said that previously the government allowed untrained teachers in the schools – including in unaided schools – with a buffer period of two years for them to complete the teachers’ training course.
“These teachers, who received a chance to undergo the course, we're doing so by way of correspondence/ distance education programs run by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU),” he informed, stating that this facility, however, has now been discontinued.
