Itanagar, Sept 05 (UNI) Announcing that a new education policy to improve the state's educational scenario is on anvil, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu today hinted that his government, as per the new policy, would provide special incentives to teachers posted at inaccessible areas.
Presenting state award to 23 teachers on the occasion of Teacher's Day here this morning, the chief minister disclosed that those teachers who would agree to work in areas at ten to twelve thousand feet altitude would be provided additional incentives besides others.
Khandu said that he believed such incentives would not only boost the morale of the teachers serving in the front areas of the state but would also encourage other teachers to prepare their mindsets for serving in any corner of the state.
Expressing concern over non-availability of teachers in many schools, as most of the teachers never wanted to join their places of posting through political interference, Mr Khandu stressed on the need to rectify the problem.
He appealed all the MLAs and ministers not to interfere in transfer and postings of teachers so as to inculcate more discipline and dedication among the teaching community. '' My government is serious on the unequal distribution of teachers and there would be no discrimination,'' he added.
While terming the teachers as the 'architect of the society', the chief minister exhorted them to work sincerely in shaping the future of the students and assured all possible help to redress their grievances. The awardees were presented with a shawl, a certificate and cash award of ten thousand each.
