Minister for urban development and higher education Dr. Shurhozelie Liezietsu Friday said though Nagaland started late in the field of education "the progress we made within a short span is commendable." He said government of Nagaland opened many schools according to demand of the people but while doing so, the concentration on imparting quality education was given less importance and therefore realizing the need to provide better education and "unreliability of government run schools," private schools were opened with the aim to provide better education to children. He was speaking at the inauguration of Great commission Kids Academy's 'Faith hall' -cum- parents' day at Naga United village, Dimapur. The chief guest said teaching being a noble profession demands sincerity and devotion and emphasized on the need of spiritual wellness in schools stating that the need of educational system at present was to produce personalities who could understand forgiveness. Also gracing the annual- parents day as guest speaker, Nagaland State Commission for Women, Chairperson Sano Vamuzo stressed on the importance of incorporating active participation of parents in the holistic education of a child. She said that for a balanced education, all round development of the child physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally were needful. Sano Vamuzo called upon parents for a need to raise a new generation and to do that, she said "one should start afresh from the family altar" while maintaining the "need for peace in our land will start with peace in the family". Rajya Sabha MP Khekiho Zhimomi, Ex MP and president of Naga HohoM. Vero Padmashree were among the dignitaries who attended the hall inauguration programme. Special highlights of the programme included musical piece by Christian Institute of Health Science and Research and songs were presented by GCKA choir.
