Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that houses for teachers will also be built at the villages where schools will be constructed. Service conditions of teachers will be improved further.

Chief Minister Mr. Chouhan was addressing the state-level teachers' felicitation function here today. At the function, he honoured teachers selected for state-level awards, teachers of the state honoured with President's Awards last year and principals of government schools achieving cent per cent results. School Education Minister Mrs. Archana Chitnis and SC, ST Welfare Minister Kunwar Vijay Shah were also present on the occasion.

Mr. Chouhan said that corruption cannot be eradicated merely by formulating law. Corruption will end by making human being a true human being and this task can be accomplished through education alone. Building dedicated, honest and patriot human beings are the responsibility of teachers. He said that teachers are builders of future nation. Teachers make children's lives meaningful by instilling good manners and educating them. A true teacher changes the course of life. The country needs true teachers nowadays. The objective of education is to instill education, skills and ethos of citizenship. Total knowledge should be given to children. This is why life histories of great heroes of freedom movement as well as information about agriculture, environment and nature will also be incorporated in school syllabus.

He said that the educational system should aim at maintaining Indian philosophy, values, traditions and manners. For this, qualitative improvement will have to be brought about in education. Sports are also necessary with education. For this, sports grounds will have to be protected. He said that the number of girls is declining rapidly in the country. In view of this, "Beti Bachao Abhiyan" is being launched in the state. Teachers should also play an active part in it. World will survive only when girls survive. The State Government has decided that pension will be granted to those couples after 55 years, who have only daughters.

Chouhan said that a regulatory commission will be constituted in the state for fixing the fees taken by private educational institutions. Government schools will be made better than private schools in view of improving quality of government schools. Teachers putting in best services for improving education will be awarded. He said the 'Madhya Pradesh Gaan' should be sung in schools.

School Education Minister Mrs. Archana Chitnis said that cent per cent promotions of teacher cadre have been effected in the state. Teachers should impart education to children with sensitiveness and manners. Teachers should create awareness in society about "Beti Bachao Abhiyan". Tribal Welfare Minister Kunwar Vijay Shah said that it is the responsibility of teacher to light the lamp of knowledge to remove illiteracy. He sought cooperation of teachers in improvement in the education sector.

At the function, Chief Minister Mr. Chouhan released a folder of message for teachers and inaugurated teachers' portal. On this occasion, groups coming out with better performance in educational symposia were also awarded. The welcome address was delivered by Director Public Instructions Mr. Ashok Varnwal. Chairman of Board of Secondary Education Mr. M.K. Rai was also present. Additional Commissioner Education, Mrs. Sunita Tripathi proposed a vote of thanks.
