The National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) will shut down non-performing institutes for teacher training.
Earlier, NCTE chairperson Satbir Bedi told in a interview :
“We are planning to launch a performance appraisal report system which will inspect institutes on several aspects, including quality of teaching and placement. Those that are non-compliant and not performing adequately will face a penalty,” NCTE chairperson Satbir Bedi said.
1,000 teaching institutes from across the country are under scrutiny.
“We have not enlisted colleges based on a single complaint but on regular non-compliance of rules and standards for teacher training. Many institutes fail to meet the minimum requirement and several seats go vacant in addition to non-quality placement. Such institutes which will anyway be rejected by students face shutdown,” said Bedi.
