Issues regarding Teachers-
Suggestions to improve Teacher Efficacy-
Recent initiatives for improvement of the quality of teacher education:-
The massive effort in recent times to revamp and expand the education system in India has far reaching implications. The draft National Education policy 2019 envisions an inclusive and equitable education system where all children have an equal opportunity to learn and thrive. It advocates for equalizing participation and learning outcomes across regions through concerted policy action. Through the establishment of special education zones, targeted funding for inclusion as well as district-wise assistance for independent research on inclusive education, the policy lays the road ahead for India.
Also, it is concluded that many reforms have taken place in the area of teacher education from time to time in the light of recommendations made by different commissions and committees set up by Government. But the issues and concerns raised above still need deep thinking and action on the part of both policy planning and implementation at micro and macro level.
