GUWAHATI, March 24: Taking charge as the chairman of the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) today, Dr. Dayanda Borgohain pledged to turn a new page in higher secondary education in the State so as to, what he said, make the generation next self-reliant.
Talking to The Sentinel over telephone today, Borgohain said: “Emphasis will be laid on students who pass HS examitions with average performance. They’re the ones who find it difficult to establish themselves with jobs. They’re not unemployed, they’re employable. The challenge is how to how make such students from Arts, Science and Commerce streams employable through vocatiol courses suiting them. A decision to this effect can only be taken through consultation with experts on human resource development and only after a thorough examition of vocatiol institutes being run elsewhere in the country. Efforts are afoot right from the word go to allure such average students of the state towards work culture for career from their current culture of fund raising. It has to be kept in mind that we’ve to import almost everything – right from potato, egg, fish, toothpaste and even our beloved phulam gamosa – from outside the State. This has to be kept in mind while drawing any plan for vocatiol education in the State.”
Borgohain said: “Making the AHSEC self-reliant is another thrust area. The time is ripe for bringing amendment to the Assam Higher Secondary Education Act, 1984. The council gets funds from the Budget allocation and fees from students. Provision should be made to ensure flow of funds other than these two sources. The Council should also be ebled to implement government projects directly so as to generate funds. On March 27, I’ll have a discussion with officials on Budget allocations.”
