“In order to train the teachers, especially those imparting maths, science and English lessons, we have inked a deal with IIT- Guwahati. We are also taking measures so that school teachers can benefit from college teachers through the training programme,” education minister Ranoj Pegu said on the sidelines of a function here on Monday.

Minister Pegu said the education department will revamp the school education system soon.

“The government is considering implementation of a school rule book across the state. The introduction of the concept of the class teacher is also being mulled. There will be some changes in the course curriculum as well,” he added.

Prof. Parameswar K Iyer, dean, public relations at IIT Guwahati, said the MoU signed between IIT- Guwahati and Samagra Shiksha, Assam education department, would promote science and technology at various levels of the schools and colleges across the state.

These activities are likely to begin very soon, he added.
