Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday called for continuous innovative process of learning as he presented national awards for Innovation in Educational Administration to many participants.
The awards have been instituted by the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA). The minister asked the education officers to act as an important link for achieving the target of quality education to all. About 150 district and block- level education officers from across India and resource persons and faculty of the university were present on the occasion.
Javadekar congratulated all the award winners and certificate holders for their unique innovations. He said for the betterment of students innovative process should go on and there should be an active participation from all quarters related to the task of providing education, including parents. The minister said innovation is a life-long process and always lends itself to better results.
He cited the recent achievement of Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangaluru, which has been ranked eighth in the list of world’s best small universities. The minister said the objective of education is to bring a good human being out of the system.
Javadekar also emphasised the need for quality leadership in teachers and headmasters for reforming the education system. The minister said the government has decided to have a separate cadre of headmasters so that a teacher becoming head master at the age of 40-45 will have a chance for another 15-20 years for devoting himself in providing quality education.
