Education minister Nyeiwang Konyak on Saturday lamented that some government school teachers were neglecting their duties despite the facilities provided to them. Konyak said this while comparing the academic performance of government run schools to private schools within the state.
Addressing the gathering at parents cum children’s day celebration of Greenwood Higher Secondary school as chief guest, Konyak opined that educating a child should not be confined within the institutions as begins at home. Pointing out that there was a huge communication gap between the parents and school, the minister urged the parents to check the progress of their wards and cooperate with the schools.
Addressing the teachers, Konyak asserted that an ideal teacher is not only an asset to the school but to the society and nation as a whole. “Teachers should teach with the spirit of a missionary and pursue their profession with devotion, integrity and dedication” he said. At the same time Konyak also averred that teaching was a great honor with greater responsibility. “Each day you are handling precious lives” he said.
He also impressed upon the students on the responsibility they carry leading the country and state. Comparing life to a relay race, Konyak asserted that the older generation will pass on the baton to them. “Your bubbling enthusiasms, if regulated and utilized in a positive way can work wonders” he said. Elucidating on the achievements made by successful persons, the minister pointed out that they knew how to sell their ideas, knowledge, talents and services. He also further maintained that it was not what people have but what they do about it that spells the differences between success and failures.
Reiterating his earlier stance, Konayk also stressed on the Right to Education, no detention policy, corporal punishment, quality education and qualification of teachers. The other highlights of the programme included cultural presentations, choreography and special numbers. However, it was the ‘Chitrahaar’ performance by the teachers and serious news@12 noon by class 11 students which received rousing applauds. Short speech on behalf of the parents was made by Rev Loli Kape and welcome address delivered by Asa Khate, director, Greenwood school.
