Teacher education system needs regular upkeep, maintenance and improvement. The National Policy on Education-2020 has laid greater emphasis on the four-year Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) and has made several recommendations for our education system. We have to see very seriously how these recommendations may be followed for better teaching and learning at secondary level. Let us hope for the best.
