· The six teachers from Delhi are the only Indian teachers who have been chosen for the programme

· The teachers will travel to the US to attend special programs at various Universities

Six teachers chosen for the Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Programme from India this year are all from Delhi government schools.

This Fulbright Fellowship is awarded to the best teachers from around the world. These teachers will be travelling to the United States and receive intensive training in teaching methodologies, lesson planning, teaching strategies for their home environment, teacher leadership, and the use of instructional technologies.
Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia invited the teachers to his residence and congratulated them on behalf of all residents of Delhi. “This is a proud moment for Delhi, since this is the first time that all teachers chosen from India are from Delhi government schools. I have always believed Delhi’s teachers are very talented. It is heartening to see they are receiving international recognition for their service to Delhi’s children. I wish them all the best for an enriching international exposure.”
The six teachers who have received the Fellowship are:

Murari Jha, recipient of Education Minister’s Special Award (2017)

Manu Gulati, Mentor Teacher for English

Anju Pathak, Mentor Teacher for Mathematics

Deepti Chawla, Mentor Teacher for English

Stuti Gaur, Special Educator

Manisha Pavi, Secondary School Teacher for Mathematics

The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA) provides outstanding secondary school teachers of English, social studies, math, science, and special education with unique opportunities to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills and increase their knowledge about the United States.

 

The Delhi government has stepped up its teacher training systems over the last three years, providing quality annual and ongoing training to all teachers. In fact, three of the teachers selected for the Fellowship are Mentor teachers, a specialised cadre of teachers raised by the government two years ago. The Delhi government’s interventions towards reforming government school education are not being recognised across the country, as well as globally.

        I have been regularly posting here and on several other sites that our main “enemy” in Delhi is Congress and not the BJP. The day we shall realize and accept this reality we shall be in a better position to strategize for the polls possibly being thrust upon us and the people of Delhi. BJP has its commited vote bank which remains more or less intact in any election in Delhi. Congress shall revive only at the cost of our votes and vice versa. Any rational observer will agree that Congress is in the revival mode all over the country in comparison 2014 & 2015 and perhaps it’s darkest days appear to be over. We have to really battle out Congress to maintain our winning supremacy. Irony and regretful reality is that while ours is the only performing govt. In the country during last three years the scenario for us in Delhi is not that bright and assuring what it should naturally be based on our accomplishments and performance. There is lot that can be said on the subject but with the obvious perils.

          The painful truth is that all this exemplary and unprecedented performance will count for a little due to several reasons. One of the major reasons is that apart from a few ministers performing with a tireless zeal added by some unelected contributors like Raghav Chadha, Atishi Merlena and a few others none of the MLA’s have done any work and not even shown their faces in their constituencies during last three years. There is substantial incumbency against these MLA’s in their respective constituencies.

            You are 100% Correct!
            AAP should target Congress more than BJP. Congress is the main enemy of AAP. All political parties are enemy of BJP and so they will target BJP. Congress has support of all political parties and hence AAP should target Congress.

              Congress is the main enemy of AAP. AAP should target Congress more than BJP, to get Congress voters to its fold. BJP has fixed voters, which they will vote BJP, no matter, if BJP keeps them hungry for days! It is their ideology, which make them vote to BJP, despite failure in Demonetization, EVM Manipulation, FDI, Aadhar Card, etc.
