During the discussion on the bill, he said the university would set a standard in teacher training and raise the standard of education. He sneered at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the unveiled sports university in Meerut had copied the model announced in Delhi.
“I was very happy when the Prime Minister said that the students of Sports University would acquire skills in sports and win medals and get degrees. This is exactly what we noticed and said while setting up a sports university here in Delhi,” Sisodia House said.
Delhi Teachers University will be spread over 12 acres of land in Bakkarwala village. It will have a digital lab and a library with world class facilities for 5000 students.
Sisodia visited the university’s under-construction campus in Bakarwala on January 1 and asked officials to expedite construction so that the session could begin soon.
The university will provide teacher education activities such as BA-BEd and B.Sc-BEd to create a new generation of teachers. University students will collaborate with government schools in Delhi for the duration of their courses and gain experience by focusing on research.
Taking part in the discussion of the bill, AAP MLA Atishi said the Delhi government has done significant work in the field of education and teacher training.
He said it has not only improved school infrastructure and quality of education but also invested in teacher training.
“If we want to invest in teachers, we have to invest in their training. The Delhi government has increased the budget for teacher training from Rs 10 crore to Rs 100 crore. Government school teachers and principals were sent to the best institutions like IIM. And abroad, ”Atishi said in the House.
He added that Delhi Teachers University would pave the way for world class training of teachers.
Opposition leader in the Delhi Assembly Rambir Singh Bidhuri, however, complained that the AAP government had not opened any new colleges in the last seven years.
“The government had earlier declared a sports university and appointed its vice-chancellor. But the university is nowhere to be found,” Bidhuri told House.
He complained that many government schools do not have principals and there are vacancies for teachers.
