The Delhi Government headed by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has decided to send 400 government school teachers for training to National Institute of Education, Singapore.

This information was given Tuesday by Delhi’s education minister Manish Sisodia. He also informed that this institute trained 200 school teachers last year. The proposal was cleared Tuesday, Sisodia tweeted.

“The future of any country depends upon its teachers. They shape our kids. Delhi Government is committed to providing best training to its teachers,” Kejriwal tweeted Tuesday (July 10, 2018).

However, the Delhi Government did not inform about the process that it followed to select the teachers for training. The government also did not reveal the total expenditure being incurred on such training of teachers and the return on investment (RoI) for teachers’ training.

A recently released research report highlights numerous pitfalls in the current state of Delhi school education including irrelevant syllabuses, poor content quality of books, defective pedagogical methods, incompetence of teachers, disturbing teacher-student ratios, and overall lack of administration in local schools.

The report reveals that most school teachers are so raw that they are not even trainable. If government stops protecting them, these government school teachers – who are surviving on public money – will not be able to get any job in the open market because they do not possess domain knowledge of any subject.

Thus, according to the report, the government is wasting huge public money on schools and school teachers.
