Edu Institutions to observe Punctuality Week from April 1
Ganai pitches for punctuality in schools, colleges
JAMMU, MARCH 20: Lamenting the current status of learning and teaching outcomes in educational institutions in the State, particularly in Government schools and colleges, Advisor to the Governor, Khurshid Ahmed Ganai, Tuesday directed the Administrative Secretaries of School Education, Higher Education and Technical Education Departments to take urgent steps to improve the punctuality and discipline in the institutions under their respective departments and also take short-term and long-term measures to improve the standards and quality of education in the State.
The Advisor, who is in-charge of the Education Department, further observed that unless the teachers in schools and teaching faculty in colleges and universities take keen interest in their work, the learning outcomes may not improve. He advised the Secretaries to help formulate a ‘Management Information System’ (MIS) for all the institutions under their charge including training colleges and institutes like SIEs and DIETs to enable close monitoring of performance and targets under teaching and learning outcomes.
The Advisor appealed to all the Teachers, Lecturers, Headmasters, ZEOs, Principals, and other Heads of Institutions to make the Punctuality Week from April 1, 2019 a big success by highlighting the importance of punctuality in schools, colleges and other educational institutions and make punctuality a habit among the students and teachers. He also expressed the hope that students and teachers in all the schools and colleges throughout the State will actively participate in various activities planned for the Punctuality Week.
