Nagaland chief secretary Temjen Toy Wednesday asserted that strong foundation of education system was required for any society to grow, saying educational sector has enormous responsibility to set the foundation right.

Speaking at State Level Sensitisation of District Level Personnel on Community Mobilisation and Training, organized by Department of School Education, at Capital Convention Centre here Wednesday, the chief secretary said that cooperation of the community was required in order to make education effective and set the right foundation for children. 

Stating that many wrong things were happening in the society, Toy urged the participants to impart the training that they receive to their respective places.

He challenged the participants to do their job with missionary zeal, saying their steps and action had long way to go in changing the standard of education in the state. 

The chief secretary also advised the officers of education department to keep updated with the time and to be open minded. He urged them to unlearn what was not relevant and to re-learn and learn.

Toy, who is also the chairman of Nagaland Education Mission Society, released video on roles and responsibilities of SMCs/SMDCs, which would be used at the district and block level training programmes.

In his concluding remarks, school education director Wonthungo Tsopoe advised the teachers to motivate and inspire students to perform better. He said that good foundation was required at primary schooling to produce better result in HSLC.  Tsopoe reminded that teachers have larger role to play in the development of students

Stating that education department was the only department, which the society evaluates the performance every year, the director said that one therefore needs to be responsible in carrying out and addressing the problems of the community. 

He also appealed to identify the problems and difficulties of the children and to identify the resources that were available in the community so the department would be able to take the initiative and create community mobilization. 

Tsopoe said that earlier teachers were not very qualified but they were more committed in their call of profession. However, the director lamented that teachers today were highly qualified, but lacked commitment, which he said was a great concern. 

He, therefore, urged the teachers to be committed in improving the standard of education and bringing change in the society.

The inaugural programme was chaired by Samagra Shiksha Nagaland mission director, Kevileno Angami. In the technical session, deputy mission director Theyievilie Suohumvu led the programme. The resource persons included JMD, RMSA Dr. Kevizakie Rio, Nuchiyi Lohe, Lhoukuo, Kikhu K Achumi, Timothy Thong, Talitemsu Jamir, Vilvino Kikhi, Khriekethozo, Thunchibemo and Omei Konyak.
