‘Time to revive teaching methods in govt schools’
IMPHAL | Apr 20
Teaching method in government schools in the past was very effective as homeworks, class works and weekly examinations were conducted regularly. But in modern days, it has been diminished due to many reasons. It is time to restore the earlier teaching system.
This was stated by the Deputy Chief Minister, Yumnam Joykumar after laying the foundation stone for the construction of Wangdei primary school at Langol in Imphal West today.
He said, teacher-pupil ratio in most of the government schools also need to be checked as teachers outnumbered number of students in some schools, he said, adding school management and development committees should play a pivotal role to check the system.
Recalling his early days while he was in government school Joykumar said in those days students from government schools came out with flying colours in most of the competitive examinations because the teaching methods in those days were very effective.
“Therefore, all stakeholders should work together to ensure a good system in the days to come,” he added.
Expressing concern over the tuition culture and mushrooming of private schools he said it cannot make the students self-reliant in problem solving and other learning methods.
He exuded confidence that the primary school which is to be constructed under Sarva Siksha abhiyan (SSA) will cater the need of students in Langol area.
