CBSE Teachers’ Awards 2020: Education Minister felicitates 38 educators
NEW DELHI: Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, on Wednesday, distributed the CBSE Award to Teachers to 38 educators from affiliated schools across the country.
The CBSE Award to Teachers is an annual function organised by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to felicitate teachers and principals who have shown excellence in school affiliated to the CBSE.
Congratulating the teachers, education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said:“ I feel that teachers play an important role in the development of students, family, society and the nation. We all understand how extensive the impact of a teacher can be in a students’ life.”
Among the teachers facilitated is Arti Qanungo, a teacher at the Government Girls Senior Secondary School in Shakarpur, Delhi, for working on developing listening abilities of students and creating activities to bring environmental and societal awareness among students.
Another awardee is Reenu Bindra, a physical education teacher at the Darshan Academy in Kirpal Bagh, Delhi, whose students have received medals in sports and games in various national competitions. Bindra has also encouraged and helped specially abled students and dropouts to pursue sports and games.
Minister of state (MOS) for education Sanjay Dhotre, CBSE chairperson Manoj Ahuja, and secretary of Department of School Education and Literacy Anita Karwal were also present at the ceremony.
Secretary of Department of School Education and Literacy Anita Karwal, who was the former chairperson of CBSE, said: “In 2018, the award was made online as we felt that the earlier process was more subjective than objective. After making the awards online, the system makes sure that every subject teacher and every type of teacher has been accounted for.”
Karwal said that from next year onwards the awards will be “aligned with National Education Policy”.
The Ministry of Education had awarded the National Award to Teachers to 47 educators, on September 5, on Teachers’ day.
