Deputy Director of Public Instruction H. Manjunath has said the efforts to improve the quality of education in government schools were not taking place in an expected manner. Speaking after inaugurating a farewell function for B.Ed. students at Bapuji Education Institute here on Wednesday, he said owing to such conditions, most parents were sending their children to private schools.
“Those in the teaching field should widen their horizon of knowledge by reading more books and improving their skills,” he said.
The quality of education in government schools would improve only when teachers try to gain knowledge in their respective subjects, and pass on the same to students.
“The skills would automatically improve once teachers start gaining knowledge,” he said.
Bapuji Education Institute secretary K.M. Veeresh called upon students to make use of the facilities provided to them in educational institutes and become good teachers. “Since the profession of teachers is very sacred, students who complete the course should maintain the dignity of the profession,” he added.
Bapuji Education Institute principal H.N. Shivkumar presided over the programme.
