Business of Teacher Education in Haryana

Business of Teacher Education in Haryana

It seems that the National Council for Teacher Education has failed to maintain the required standards of teacher education after promoting self-financed teacher-education institutions to meet the demand for and supply of teachers at primary, upper primary and secondary levels. A study conducted in Haryana shows how such institutions are a threat to the entire education system. Haryana has become a hub for getting degrees without attending classes in the privately-managed teacher-education colleges. The study also reviews various issues such as violation of rules and regulations, corruption, non-existing resources, poor teaching–learning process, etc.

Teachers are expected not only to impart knowledge and skills, but also help to develop among students understanding of a whole range of social topics. (UNESCO 1996)
