More teacher training needed to head off shortage, report finds
This sounds gravely concerning.
The country requires more than 6,500 high school teachers between now and next March, along with over21,000 middle school teachers and more than 35,000 primary school teachers, according to a report by the National Education Policy Commission in its second report (covering April to October) submitted to the Union Parliament.The report pointed said that teacher-training programs at universities and colleges were unable to sufficiently fill the vacant seats in basic-education schools. The Education Ministry needed to seek ways to solve that problem, said the report.
