HRD likely to implement Verma Commission suggestions to improve teaching quality

Source : Edu-Leaders
Jan 31, 2013

 The Ministry is keen to implement the recommendations of the Justice Verma Commission on teacher education to improve quality of teachers.

 
Ministry of Human Resource and Development called a meeting of the Education Department of States and the affiliation bodies like National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE) to discuss deteriorating teachers' quality in the country.
 
According to report, the Ministry is keen to implement the recommendations of the Justice Verma Commission on teacher education to improve quality of teachers. Sources claimed that the Commission has stressed for pre-entry testing of candidates for admission to teachers' education programmes; increasing investment in establishing teacher education institution; and exploring the possibility of teacher educators as visiting faculty in schools.
 
The consultative meeting comes in the wake of Justice JS Verma's observation that results of the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) demonstrate that bulk of the candidates who take the test do not qualify to be recruited, despite having a professional degree in teaching. This, the commission said, reflects the poor quality of pre-service teacher education and poor subject knowledge, and poor quality of general education across the country.
 
A senior HRD Ministry official said, "It has been argued that the need for conducting TET may not have arisen if a fairly rigorous system of admissions to teacher education courses had been followed." The Commission has recommended that the Government explore possibilities of instituting pre-entry tests for admission to the various programmes of teacher education.
 
The Commission has already talked about strengthening of instructional structures like NCTE, TETs, DIETs and BRCs for in-service teacher training. The Supreme Court-appointed Commission has taken a view that the recommendations of the Commission deserve to be accepted and has requested the Centre and the NCTE to file an affidavit in the implementation plan.
