Delhi assembly: Sisodia introduces bill for Delhi Teachers University

Delhi Deputy Prime Minister Manish Sisodia tabled a draft law for Delhi Teachers University on Monday on the first day of the two-day session of the Delhi Assembly.

Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, said historic decisions have been made by the AAP government over the past seven years, including spending 25 percent of the budget on education.

This is not a romance formula. We do this and consider education to be the most basic requirement. The credit for the educational revolution is due above all to the teachers, he said in the house.

The minister also visited a campus under construction at the Delhi Teachers University in Bakkarwala on January 1. He had asked the officials to expedite construction so that the meeting could start as soon as possible.

The university will offer teacher training courses such as BA-BEd and BSc-BEd to create a new generation of teachers.

In this initiative, students will work with government schools in Delhi for the duration of their courses and gain hands-on experience with a focus on research.

Delhi Teachers University will span 12 acres and include lecture halls, digital labs and a library with world-class facilities.

Sisodia said that students at this university will have the opportunity to connect with teachers from all over the world during conferences and interactive sessions.
