During the visit Th. Radheshyam met teachers and student of the Union College, Lambung, Chandel. He said good leaders or the best managers are those who make the most of the available limited resources. It is important and the need of hour that as whole we proceed towards qualitative approach rather than looking for quantity.
Regarding shortcomings of teachers in the college, the Education Minister said he will try to send the required teachers at the earliest. He added there is a recruitment procedure underway to fill up the vacant post of teachers in colleges.
He said that, there is a need to conduct a rational survey to find out the subjects/stream having high demand of job employment and which subject would benefit the student most and even in pursuing higher education.
Such subject or streams need to be strengthened, he added. The market is all about demand and supply. Everyone has limited time to be able to achieve their goals in life. So, the teachers should mentor and guide the students along the right path. For this the teachers should teach the students how to make the right choice, he said.
