Delivering a resourceful lecture on the topic “school education in Manipur”, Professor W. Nabakumar, Department of Anthropology, MU said that development of a nation depends on the development of education. The present system of education in the state needs to be changed to bring value based education. The present system of education is just to store information in the mindset of the students, but lacks thinking and reasoning on the part of the students.
The teachers of the private schools are being exploited with a small salary despite their service is highly commendable. There is always a tussle between the private school owners and the student bodies regarding school fees. State Government need to introduce a stable policy to solve these problems, added he.
