The Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday initiated the process of handing over the appointment letters to 36,950 assistant school teachers under the state’s recruitment drive.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and local public representatives distributed the letters of appointment to the successful candidates at programmes organised in the districts.
At a ceremony in Adityanath’s residence, five newly recruited youths were handed over the appointment letter.
Adityanath started the process of distributing the appointment letters to the teachers through an online ceremony as a safety measure amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic under ‘Mission Rozgar’.
He also addressed the recruited teachers and officials through video conferencing.
“Newly elected teachers must understand this responsibility. As the schools are closed amid COVID-19, you must go to the schools to take details and guide parents and children accordingly. Keep teaching them something new, innovative and raise awareness. Teachers have to understand that a teacher is a lifelong teacher. I appeal to the teachers to simplify the syllabus, make the syllabus interesting and encourage innovations,” Yogi Adityanath said.
Adityanath also directed the departmental officers to provide one copy of the new National Education Policy to all newly appointed teachers.
