Imphal 8th July 2017 (DIPR): Education Minister Shri Th. Radheshyam said fighting moral corruptions of mass copying in examinations by providing free and fair examination is necessary. This will help the children in gaining true knowledge, deeper understanding and skills, grooming them as good human. The minister was speaking as chief guest of the 27th Annual Prize Distribution Ceremony Cum District Level Symposium Competition at Sofia English School, Thoubal organised by the H.S.L.C. Examination Private Centre Committee, Thoubal Centre (A).
The Minister explained, education readies one to face every challenges and hurdles in life with holistic developmental quality. Ability to read, write and speak is just a minute part of education and obtaining high marks in examination does not define the educational quality of an individual, he added.
Children need to be made innovative and creative, and train them to make right choice through education instead of adding load of schooling and tutoring. For better future, the moral values need to be strengthened in the young minds with ability of dedication, commitments, sacrifice and help the needy, minister said.
He urged the people to provide for suggestions and comments so that the best be brought to the education system of the state by transforming and reforming. Education’s first and foremost focus should be the students. Any infrastructural development of education should be based on needs rather than the push, he added.
Parliamentary Secretary Education K. Robindro Singh said, the certificates would not guarantee lucrative jobs. The capability to act upon the task in hand will define the person and it will provide security for the future.
Members of the organising committee, teachers, students and guardians attended the function. (DIPR)
