Bhopal:Thursday, July 17:Time has come to honour the people who have been putting in hard labour in ensuring improvement in the results of government high and higher secondary schools as part of Madhya Pradesh government’s sincere and sustained efforts to this effect.
The excellent performance given by these schools in the last three yearly examinations has boosted the morale of both students and the state government. In view of this, the state government has decided to honour principals of those schools which have achieved 80 or more percent success in two examinations during the year 2007-08. Apart from this, a decision has also been taken to organise training for them at the division level to apprise them of the future course of action for further improvement. The principals’ orientation training programme would be held at Bhopal division on July 18.
During this programme principals of schools with 80 or more percent results would also be honoured. The period when government school teachers, principals and students were unnecessarily criticised and taken to task has ended. Due to state government’s efforts they have been provided a congenial and positive atmosphere and therefore, they must take full benefit for ensuing further improvement. The state government has taken unto itself the responsibility of finding out lacunae and shortcomings at a cost of lakhs of rupees. High officers of Directorate of Public Instructions have been entrusted this task. Those found guilty of any shortcoming would have to face action.
During the division level orientation programmes, principals of high and higher secondary schools would be introduced to the methods and ways through which new heights would be scaled in education sector. These programmes would be held on July 18 at Bhopal, July 22 at Ujjain, July 23 at Indore and July 28 at Gwalior. Training would be imparted to principals on August 4 at Jabalpur and August 6 at Rewa. With a view to making the training programmes more effective, officers from DPI, all the concerning District Education Officers, Block Development Education Officers, D.I.E.T. principals and Assistant Commissioners Tribal Development would remain present there.
Detailed discussions would also be held on the implementation of government schemes at these training sessions apart from reviewing the directives issued to improve standard of education. Training to subject teachers and future course of action would also be on the agenda of these programmes. This would be occasion when excellent principals would be honoured.
