The Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) on Wednesday decided to constitute a committee to develop the  framework and processes of the National Mission on Teachers and Teaching.

Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal, who chaired the 59th meeting of the CABE, underlined the need to get the best minds in the teaching profession to educate children.

“We propose to have a National Mission mainly to address the quality-related issues.  Teacher is no longer the sole repository of knowledge, and inputs of information flow from different sources. We should have a national mission to address issues relating to teacher education in a holistic manner,” he said.

The CABE Committee headed by Minister of State for HRD Purandeshwari will give special focus on teacher educators and develop teachers for inclusive education for children with special needs. The CABE also decided to constitute a committee for assessment and implementation of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in the context of the no detention provision in the RTE Act.

The committee, headed by Haryana Minister Geeta Bhukkal, will submit its report in three months after consulting State Governments and other stakeholders.  The report of the CABE Committee on ICT in school education and the draft National Policy on ICT were unanimously adopted.
