Jalandhar, September 12

With an aim to give a fillip to the state government’s ‘Sikhiya Sudhar Muhim’, the Education Department on Saturday announced a week-long virtual parent-teacher meeting (PTM) from September 14 to 19.

Over a lakh government schoolteachers would interact with parents of about 27 lakh students of classes from pre-primary to Class XII studying in over 19,000 government schools in the state. Besides interacting with parents to apprise parents of the performance of their wards, the teachers will also take feedback on online education and lectures being streamed on TV/radio, social media platforms such as YouTube and WhatsApp and other applications and the use of Punjab Educare app.

Meanwhile, District Education Officers (Secondary and Primary), Zila Sikhiya Sudhar teams, school heads, District Mentors (DMs) of various subjects, Parho Punjab district coordinators and Block Primary Education Officers have started holding online meetings to educate schoolteachers, parents, students and community about the virtual PTM. Posters and videos are also being prepared and shared by media coordinators in WhatsApp groups and on Facebook to encourage parents’ participation.

“Officials and teachers have really been doing a commendable job during the pandemic and putting in all-out efforts. They have not only accepted the challenges posed by digital education but have also adapted themselves to the latest digital applications to make online education successful,” said Education Secretary Krishan Kumar.
