The Delhi government has selected 30 principals from the 54 model schools in the Capital who will be sent to Cambridge University in the next few months. The Delhi government had in its Budget, released on Monday, announced that it will send its teachers to universities like Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge to train them in best education practices. The government has also earmarked Rs.102 crore for this purpose. Training teachers at regular intervals is one of the best education practices adopted by many countries across the world. Finland and South Korea, which claim to have adopted the best education practices, send their teachers for trainings to help improve their skills and teach children in a better way.After the first batch of principals is trained, 200 teachers will be sent to Cambridge. The next batches will be sent to Harvard and then to Singapore University. The trained teachers will then act as “mentor teachers”, who will be given the responsibility to train others. “The mentor teachers will be responsible for capacity building across various schools in the Capital. The idea is to multiply knowledge among as many teachers as possible. These mentors will also visit schools for inspection,” Education Advisor to the government Atishi Marlena said.
