SIVASAGAR, Dec 9: Addressing the open session of Prathamik Sikshak Sanmilani (PSS)’s 48th biennial conference held at Khamon Rangamancha, Bokota, Sivasagar recently, Thowra MLA Sushantan Borgohain said that the future of the nation will be in peril if primary education is not strengthened qualitatively. He said that the former Congress government failed to utilise the Rs 2,000 crore Central grant for education due to a lack of vision. Had it been utilised properly, the primary education would have received a big boost, he further said.
He expressed hope that the proactive state government now will surely bring about a huge jump in the education sector within a short period of time. Kamaljyoti Gogoi, inspector of School, Sivasagar, in his speech, said that the teachers of all subjects need to change and adapt themselves to implement the New Education Policy or things will remain the same.
Rabin Dihingia, president of the Sanmilani, hoisted the flag while Binanda Dutta, the secretary, did the tarpan and Abdul Salam lit the ceremonial lamp. The delegates’ session was inaugurated by Anjali Barua Phukan.
Ratul Goswami, the state general secretary of the Sanmilani, said that the government and the society must take the teachers in confidence to have the desired changes in the education sector.
The souvenir, Abhravedi, edited by Haren Sarma and Nabaneet Hazarika, was released by Dr Sabyachashi Mahanta, principal, Gargaon College. In his speech, he said that primary teachers are the pillars of the future of a nation and hence carry immense importance in building the next stages of education.
