The Central Government will be spending close to Rs 600 cr for training teachers as part of 12th Plan.
Forum on Teacher's Challenges for Education for All (EFA) in India and the Minister of Human Resource Development (HRD), Kapil Sibal, called for a system for continuous and comprehensive evaluation of teachers.
Kapil Sibal stressed the need to impart training to teachers so that they can provide education to students. According to a recent study the level of teachers in school has been very low and immediate attention from HRD ministry is required to fix this.
"There is a problem that the E-9 countries and the global community are facing in terms of quality of the teachers. If India has to succeed in the 21st century we need to address this issue very seriously," the minister added.
