Only teachers can bring change in society: Pallab Lochan Das

Free textbooks distributed in Sonitpur district

 From a Correspondent

Tezpur, Jan 11: Distributing free textbooks for Class IX and Class X to the secondary schools of the Sonitpur district, State Minister Pallab Lochan Das on Wednesday said that only teachers could bring change in the society.

The minister, who was the chief guest at the inaugural function of free textbook distribution for Class IX and Class X in Sonitpur district for the academic year 2017-18 held at the District Library, also stressed nationalization of the ‘pupil-teacher’ ratio for fostering the educational scenario of the State.  Urging the teacher community to devout themselves in changing and molding  the behavior of the students, he also said that there was no any doubt that one day Assam would be among the developed States if the education sector of the State was developed. “If a teacher takes the responsibility of at least two students for their all-round development, including changing their attitude, behavior and proper concept regarding their life, the society as well as education will get a new dimension reflecting the nation’s development,” he said.

Highlighting the government’s present policy of giving a new shape to the State education department, Das also said that from now on, appointment and transfer of teachers would be made on the basis of his quality. In his speech he also said that a teacher had every potential to give a unique form to a particular school or college, besides building its environment.

Meanwhile, Purneswar Nath, retired teacher, while speaking on the occasion, expressed his grave concern over the pitiable condition of the government schools. “Many government primary schools have already been closed due to the indifferent attitude of the State education department, which is a very unfortunate issue for us,” he said, urging the government to take initiative to make a ‘think hub’, especially for the education department, to bring a revolution in the education sector of the State. Giving priority in teacher training programme, he also urged the government to establish new Teacher Training College (B. Ed College) in Sonitpur district with modern facilities like ICT and digital library.

The meeting, conducted by Inspector of Schools, SDC, Anisur Rahman Chowdhury, was attended by ADC Parag Kumar Kakoti, retired professor Upendra Nath Sharma, Hemanta Kumar Baruah from LOKD College and headmasters of all the high schools of the district.
