Terming teachers as a critical factor of quality education, Singh stressed the need to make them an integral part of policy-making, governance and management, as also of day-to-day instructional strategies and decision making.
"The empowerment of teachers that includes real opportunity for them to share policy perspectives and decision-making will have to be the key component of the educational reform process," emphasized Singh.
While wishing all teachers in the country a very meaningful and satisfying engagement with children, Singh urged them to build in children a commitment to the values of democracy, and the values of equality, social justice, freedom, secularism, and respect for human dignity.
