Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia has asked the Directorate of Education to refurbish staff rooms in schools and place tea and coffee vending machines in them.
Writing to the department, Sisodia said during his visits to schools, he found staff rooms in a bad condition.
“The plaster is peeling off the walls, floors are broken, the lockers are shabby and furniture is in need of repair,” he observed. Stating that teachers are the most important pillars of the education system, he said it was the government’s responsibility to provide them with adequate facilities to ensure basic comfort when they were in school.
He directed to department to ensure that staff rooms get quality tables and chairs, and facelift to ensure a welcoming ambience for teachers.
“High quality cabinet and lockers should be provided for personal effect and to keep academic material. Tea and coffee vending machines should be installed to give free tea to teachers,” stated Sisodia’s order.
