" The Education Reforms Commission was set up with an aim to impart quality education among the students. However, implementing the commission's recommendations is beyond our current financial capacity, " Lal Thanhawla said, while addressing an official function for upgradation of the College of Teachers Education to the Institute of Advanced Study in Education (IASE).
Even though the government put priority to skill development, financial constraints prevented the government from making the desired efforts.
However, his government had made significant achievements in developing sports infrastructures and the establishment of NIT, IIMC, and management institute, Lal Thanhawla said. The institute used to be known as Mizoram Institute of Education or College of Teachers Education.
It was changed to Teachers' Education Approval Board in 2005.
After the Mizoram University Academic Council approved M Ed syllabus, the National Council for Teachers Education (NCTE) gave its recognition on March 12 this year. The M Ed programme was introduced from August this year. It has 24 trainees for M Ed and 100 for B Ed.
