Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday exhorted teachers and educators to eliminate fear from the minds of students while teaching and imparting education to them.

Sisodia was speaking while inaugurating a one-day capacity building programme on “Elimination of Corporal Punishments” organised by the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) at Vigyan Bhawan here.

The programme was aimed to provide in-depth understanding of different issues related to corporal punishment, legal provision against corporal punishment and to empower our teachers in broad context and perspective of corporal punishment.

Sisodia said teachers must build capacity in children to learn more and more, leaving behind fear and shyness.

He underlined the need for creating an atmosphere of affection, wherein teachers and students could develop an understanding ~ teachers to teach and students to learn.

Only then could the goal of getting real and value based education for overall personality development of students be achieved.

Sisodia said, “almost leading IT or software companies across the world have Indians as their employees but none as employers. We as employees get salaries and are satisfied, whereas the owners get dividends for life or for generations to come. This is due to fear or the lack of confidence in oneself.”
