CABE to form panel on teachers' training

Thursday June 07, 2012 08:02:32 AM, IANS

New Delhi: With teachers' training high on the government's agenda, the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) has decided to look into developing a framework for the new central programme for teachers' training.

CABE, which is the highest advisory body in education, at its meeting here Wednesday decided to form a committee to develop the "framework and processes" for the National Mission on Teachers and Teaching being launched by the central government.

Minister of State for Education D. Purandeswari will head the committee.

Quality of teaching is in the focus in the 12th Five-Year Plan (2012-17) for successfully implementing the right to education.

The National Mission on Teachers and Teaching focuses on giving quality training to teachers.

Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal, meanwhile, said it was "ironic" that best minds were not being attracted to teaching.

"It is ironic that you always talk about education of children. Here we are talking about teacher education. In other words, we have accepted the fact that our teaching communities are not as educated as they should be," Sibal said at the meeting.

"If we want to educate our children, we must get the best minds into the teaching profession," he said.

The board also decided to form a committee to look into the policy of not detaining and allowing students to move on up to Class 8, as per the right to education.

The committee will be chaired by Haryana's Education Minister Geeta Bhukkal and include education ministers from other states and representatives from academia and civil society.
