Teacher Education in India

Issues and Concerns

Editor(s): Lokanath Mishra
Contributors: Lokanath Mishra, Lalhmasai Chuaungo;

Book Description

This book derives from an ICSSR New Delhi-sponsored National seminar on teacher education issues and concerns, with special reference to North East India, organised by the Department of Education at Mizoram University, Aizawl, India. The entire fabric of any modern and progressive country is built upon the quality, dedication, competency, and commitment of teachers. A great responsibility lies with teachers, as a generation of young people’s education is dependent on teachers’ ability to teach well. The teacher education system is, therefore, an important vehicle to improve the quality of education, which means that the revitalisation and strengthening of the teacher education system is a powerful way to raise the standard of education in a country. This collection of papers analyses this teacher education system and the processes of improvement that are taking place.
