Terming the initiative as important for improvement in dissemination of quality education and overall development of the students, the DC said that concerned officers shall work as bridge between school and the administration to take our education sector to new heights.
He said though the imparting education shall lie with teachers only, however, main objective is to ensure teachers remain for teaching purposes
