Arunachal Pradesh Governor BD Mishra on Monday called upon teachers in the state to give priority to nation and take their profession as a “nation-building measure”.
The governor, speaking at the inaugural session of the higher and technical education conference in Itanagar, said that both teachers and students should work together with emphasis on nation and quality education. He suggested appraisal system for teachers to help improve the education quality in the state.
Addressing the inaugural session of the higher and technical education conference here, Mishra said that parents must inculcate an “entrepreneurial tendency” among their school-going children.
Pointing out that the foundation of higher education needs to be strong and should not be seen as a means to secure a job, Mishra said, “The need is to make primary, secondary and college teaching and studying progressive and broad-based”.
At the function, Mishra presented the ‘Governor’s Cash Award’ for toppers in the undergraduate exams for 2019 to four students, besides the Life Time Teacher Award to retired lecturer C K Singh of Dera Natung College and the ‘Outstanding College Teachers Award’ to Temin Payum, assistant professor (Botany) of J N College in Pasighat and S Suresh Kumar, principal-in-charge of Government Polytechnic in Namsai, according to reports.
