Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma on August 2 said the government is aware and concerned about the challenges in the education sector and committed to address those issues and challenges.
Addressing the inaugural session of the 33rd biennial general conference of Meghalaya college teachers’ association (MCTA), he said that it is important for all stakeholders in the education sector not to forget the important objective of shaping the younger generations to be the champions of the future.
“While it is important to maintain and improve the quality of education, motivate the teachers and give them the right infrastructures and service conditions, it is important for all stakeholders in the education sector to remember why we are here, to mould, guide and shape the future of the students,” Sangma said.
The CM also said that the government is aware and concerned about the challenges in the education sector and committed to address those issues and challenges.
“For India the youth is our greatest challenge and the greatest resource and if we all stakeholders can do our part we will become a great nation and to see that our state Meghalaya surges ahead,” he stated.
Education minister, Lakhmen Rymbui lamented that the students of the 6th semester, North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) had to resort to agitation for the delay in the declaration of the results.
He said that this delay in the declaration of results is creating problems for students seeking admission in post graduate courses across the country.
Rymbui urged the teachers to ensure that such delays and uncertainties do not happen in future and the students are not put into hardships.
The education minister said that the government is trying to address the issues and problems faced by every category of teachers and reminded the teachers of the need to work together and understand each other’s responsibilities and constraints and to work for the larger benefit of the students.
