PORVORIM: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant today appealed the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (GBSHSE) to simplify external exam process for repeat candidates
CM Sawant was addressing the gathering during the inauguration of New Building of Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education at Porvorim.
“GBSHSE needs to simplify external exam process for repeat candidates. We should restrain them from taking fake education certificates from other State Boards,” said Sawant.
He further said that reforms in education sector aren’t for jobs, but for skilling.
Sawant also said that Goa aims to become the first state to implement the NEP from the pre-primary to higher education levels.
“We are laying the foundation now, but the results will be seen after 20 to 25 years. When the NEP implementation is complete and we see students completing their studies and graduating, they will bring in a big change. And for this to happen, the teachers have a big role to play,” said Sawant.
In his address, Sawant emphasised the role that teachers play in shaping students’ futures. He also said that the government remains totally committed and ready to implement the NEP in the coming academic year.
“We want to become a model state in the implementation of the NEP, starting from the pre-primary level,” he said.
