Chief Minister Vows to Enhance Quality Education Statewide


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, July 20:  Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha on Thursday said that the state government is constantly working to improve the quality of education in the state and is committed to imparting values and quality education in all schools.

 “The state government is continuously striving to enhance the quality of education. We are dedicated to imparting values and ensuring high-quality education in all schools across the state. When the quality of education in a state improves, the state’s overall development shines. The intelligence of the children of Tripura is no less than in any other region. They are not lagging behind in any aspect; they only require the right platform,” said the Chief Minister during the inauguration of a two-day program organized on the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee of the Institute of Advanced Studies in Education (IASE) at Kunjaban in the capital.

In his inaugural address, the Chief Minister emphasized the significance of teachers and education.

 “While keeping up with the times, one can now study using mobile or laptop devices. However, let us remember that ‘old is gold.’ True depth of a subject can only be reached through reading the pages of a book. This process fosters intellectual excellence, which cannot be achieved through mobile or laptop usage. Thanks to the sincere efforts of the Prime Minister, we have successfully launched the National Education Policy after 33 years, as the need for it has been felt over time. Now, the whole world is moving forward, and the Prime Minister rightly said that knowledge will be the key to success in the future,” said Dr. Saha.

Addressing the concerning trend of the tuition system, the Chief Minister expressed his worries. He observed that parents are still running from one end to the other with their children for private tuition, leading to increased pressure on students and negatively impacting their mental health. He stated that the government is determined to curb this trend and find ways to impart values and quality education to students. The Chief Minister also expressed concern about some teachers’ irregularities, citing cases where they do not arrive on time and leave early.
