New Delhi, Jan 15 (IANS) Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday said the solution to the menace of terrorism and global warming will be found through education only.
“The time has come when all Education Ministers put their heads together to assure the country that they will bring a solution to terrorism through education,” Sisodia said while addressing the 65th meeting of Central Advisory Board for Education at Vigyan Bhavan here.
He said the Ministers should assure the country that they will impart such education to children that ensures that no educated individual under any circumstances chooses terrorism.
Sisodia lauded the central government for focusing on ‘learning outcomes’ across the country.
At the same time, he said that learning outcomes cannot be achieved by merely drawing up such lists.
He asked on National Council of Educational Research and Training, Central Board of Secondary Education and all state governments to promptly reduce syllabi in all subjects by 50 per cent so that teachers shift their attention to learning outcomes.
“As long as the sword of syllabi completion hangs over teachers they can never shift their attention to learning outcomes,” he said.
Sisodia said the Delhi government was speeding up the process of installing closed-circuit televisions in every classroom of state-run schools and to provide all teachers with tablets.
