The Delhi government will fund the education of government school teachers who get selected in the world’s top 100 universities for pursuing courses, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Sunday. He was speaking at a function where 122 teachers and principals were honoured with the State Teacher Award.
”In the last five years, we have sent our teachers and principals to Cambridge, Finland, Singapore and the US. The courses for which our teachers went there were such courses which these universities had prepared for us,” Sisodia said. “All the best universities in the world are known for their own tailored courses. We believe that if our teachers apply for such courses, they can get selected on the basis of their abilities. That’s why the Delhi government has decided today on Teachers’ Day, that our teachers will be able to apply for prestigious courses in the field of education in the world’s 100 top ranked universities,” the deputy chief minister said.
