Bengaluru. Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy said India needs to invest at least one billion dollars annually for the next twenty years to train its primary and secondary school teachers to achieve better results.
NR Narayana Murthy was speaking at the Infosys Awards ceremony organized by the Infosys Science Foundation. These awards are given annually to scientists, researchers, professors and economists from India and around the world in six categories. Talking about the New Education Policy (NEP) introduced by the Modi government, Murthy said that steps should be taken to accelerate its results.
Murthy said that a possible way to accelerate the outcome of NEP is to invite 10,000 retired highly accomplished teachers in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) from the developed world and India to our 28 states and 8 centres. Train 2,500 teachers in the administered states. The training program should be throughout the year.
