“Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education.” MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

With this view, Assam Governor Banwarilal Purohit called out the State’s teaching fraternity to impart education with an aim towards strong character building in students of today. “Education that helps the students to build moral character can go a long way in addressing burning issues like corruption,” asserted Governor Purohit.

He was addressing the closing ceremony of the 80th Anniversary of Khetrihardia Higher Secondary School at Hajo in Kamrup district of Assam. Governor Purohit urged the student to follow the 3-D rule in life- Discipline, Dedication and Determination to set big goals in life, achieve them through ‘hard labour’ and thus make a difference to the society and in-turn to the nation.

Urges students towards 3-DS’s: Discipline, Dedication and Determination

It is evident from reality that only material riches aren’t enough to attain life’s satisfaction. Character through education is of prime importance in today’s world. And a strong-character person will surely be off corruption, is commonly believed.

Thus, the Assam Governor added, “If the education system of India helps our students imbibe and nurture moral values, then they can build a deterrent against corruption. And if this is accomplished then no one can stop our nation from surpassing the developed nations of the world.”

The Governor added that strong support to the ‘demonetisation move’ of the Centre by all conscientious citizens has ensured ‘crackdown on corruption.’

He lauded Assam Chief Minister Sarbananada Sonowal’s efforts during the post-demonetization drive. It is noteworthy that cashless transactions are a reality in all places now, especially in tea garden areas where daily wagers are employed in large numbers.

The ceremony was presided over by veteran journalist Kanaksen Deka and was attended by Deputy Commissioner Kamrup Vinod Seshan, School Principal Nazimuddin Ali Saikia along with a host of other dignitaries.

Indian Teachers In Big Demand At UAE

UAE wants Indian teachers

The increasing number of private schools across the country and the continuing recruitment for public schools has pushed up the need for teachers in the UAE, said Ben Glickman, founder and managing director of Footprints Recruiting.

He estimated that there were “a couple of thousand positions to fill” across the country.

“The demand for teachers does remain strong in the United Arab Emirates,” he said.

To qualify for work in the Emirates, teachers must hold a certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages, a teaching license in their home country and have at least two or three years of teaching experience, Mr. Glickman said.

“But, in particular, we’re seeing an increase in demand for teachers who have a science, maths or technology background,” he said.

Primary school teachers “are still the most in-demand”, said Eoin Bolger, business development manager for UAE-based teacher recruiting firm Teach and Explore, which helps to fill vacancies in private schools.

“Female science and maths teachers are always sought after and can be quite difficult to find,” Mr Bolger said. “Teachers with a masters relative to education generally will be picked up by schools first.”

The high cost of living, increased the price of petrol and utilities, and introduction of a new municipal fee for expatriates has done little to deter foreign teachers seeking work in the UAE, Mr. Bolger said.

“The UAE is still a very attractive destination for teachers to come to live and work,” he said. “Why wouldn’t it be? They are getting well paid, especially when you compare it with take-home pay in their home countries. They pay no tax, no rent, flights are paid for and they receive free medical insurance. It is a wonderful opportunity for anyone to gain valuable teaching experience they might not get in their home country, save money and travel.”

Private schoolteachers can expect to earn from Dh11,000 up to Dh17,000 a month, depending on their experience and qualifications, Mr Bolger said.

“We work with high-end schools that provide good pay and packages for our teachers,” he said. “In turn, the school expects that all our teachers have a degree or masters in education and at least two years fully qualified experience.”

Mr Glickman said a salary of about Dh120,000 a year, plus free housing, was fairly normal for private schoolteachers.

For public school jobs, the Abu Dhabi Education Council can pay between Dh12,000 and Dh20,400 a month, depending on experience and qualifications, plus housing, according to recruitment firms.

Despite the challenging economic climate for foreigners here, prospective candidates do not have much negotiating power, Mr. Glickman said.

“If you get an offer from Adec, the negotiating is either ‘take it or leave it’,” he said.

“The private schools, there is some leeway for negotiations, but not a tonne.

“Generally we will negotiate on behalf of our candidates because we don’t want them to mess up the offer.

“Sometimes they have unrealistic expectations.”

Revaluation Of Answer Sheets

The state government ordered an inquiry into the alleged lapses in the system deployed by Globarena Technologies, whose services were hired by TSBIE to conduct the exams.

The Telangana high court on Tuesday asked the TSBIE or Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education to conduct a revaluation of answer sheets of all the failed candidates whose first and second-year Intermediate examinations’ results released recently. The court, while hearing a petition filed by an NGO, gave time to the TSBIE board till April 29 (Monday) to disclose how much time it would take for completion of revaluation, reported Hindustan Times. 

The NGO has also sought a thorough probe into the lapses and compensation to the families of the students who ended their lives.

A total of 9 lakh students had appeared in the intermediate exams held in February-March. The results, announced last Thursday, led to utter chaos. Many bright students who did well in the first year failed in the second year. Most of them were shocked as they were awarded zero, one or two marks.

TBIE Secretary A. Ashok on Monday admitted that there were some lapses in declaring the results. He, however, assured students that the discrepancies would be rectified.

The state government on Monday ordered an inquiry into the alleged lapses in the system deployed by Globarena Technologies, whose services were hired by TSBIE to conduct the exams.

A three-member committee, headed by G. T. Venkateswar Rao, Managing Director, Telangana State Technological Service, will find out whether there were any errors in the publication of results on account of any systemic errors of the agency. 

The committee, which also has Professor A. Vassan of BITS Hyderabad and Professor Nishanth Dongari of IIT Hyderabad as its members, has been asked to submit the report in three days.

Telangana Government Junior College Lecturers Association president Madhusudhan Reddy said at least eight students allegedly committed suicide while several others attempted to end their lives after they failed to clear the exam.

The parents alleged “goof up” in the paper valuation and demanded a thorough re-verification of the papers of those who had failed. 

According to Reddy, eleven students who scored over 900 (out of total 1,000), 125 with scores between 850 and 900 and about 2,000 who scored over 750 were declared failed in one subject which varied among students.
