PM Narendra Modi Launches New Teacher Training Scheme

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday advocated introduction of a five-year training course after schooling for those aspiring to pursue a career in teaching and said the country should aim to export top-class teachers across the world.

He made a strong pitch for producing good teachers in large numbers and also launched a mission in this regard amid his assertion that the whole world is looking at India with great expectations "but we are not ready".

Sharing his vision for an education policy which struck at the roots of social evils like lack of hygiene and female foeticide, Modi said, "India has a tremendous responsibility towards the world in the 21st century, which has been called the century of knowledge."Prime Minister Narendra Modi was speaking at a function organised at the Benaras Hindu University, where he laid the foundation stone for an inter-university centre for teachers education.

Modi also launched a Rs 900-crore scheme "Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching", named after the BHU founder, whom the Modi government has decided to posthumously confer the Bharat Ratna.

"There is a great demand. We need to produce teachers," he said while announcing the launch of the mission in the name of Madan Mohan Malaviya.

The Prime Minister noted that there is a big requirement for science, technology, innovation and invention where India can play a crucial role.

He said teaching is chosen as a profession largely by those who have not been able to get into other fields and this perception needs to be changed.

About the education system in the country, he said it is "not designed to create robots.... We produce culture of education rooted in tradition... We have to see how to enrich it."

Modi, who also launched Varanasi Mahotsava in this culturally-rich city, talked about the rich heritage of handicrafts and suggested that it could be given a fillip by involving technology.

It will help improve both quality and quantity, he said and suggested provision of online sales.
