As qualifications of faculty members are of great importance, they have higher academic skills and knowledge to give comprehensive lectures to the students, says Senior General

As it is necessary to train the students to have experiences for life as well as learning education at the university, good environments must be created for students to widen their scopes, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at the coordination meeting on the higher education sector of the Ministry of Education, at the ministry in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.

Hence, the 30-year national education programme is being implemented for the development of the education sector.

In his speech, the Senior General first and foremost expressed his wish to improve the education standard of the country. But states and ethnic areas faced weakness of rural education due to language barriers and poor transport facilities. In successive eras of the governments, weakness happened in the education sector because of lesser number of teachers.
In the socialist era, the academic system was weak in learning English. Hence, students faced difficulties in studying high education to keep abreast of the international community. In the time of the State Law and Order Restoration Council, emphasis was placed on the passing of examination rather than having actual knowledge from learning. Hence, the 30-year national education programme is being implemented for the development of the education sector.
As the development of a country depends on a larger number of educated persons, officials of the education sector must strive for an increasing number of educated persons. Some three million people among 55 million are graduates. Hence, it can be seen that less than 10 per cent of people can learn higher education. More than 18 million of the population could join the primary and middle school education. As education is crucial for the development of the nation, efforts are being made to develop the education sector during the period when the Tatmadaw took the State responsibilities.
Universities are institutions to create environments for the students to consider knowledge and skills and take the learning opportunities. Classrooms and practical rooms must be systematic for students to have easy access to the learning. As the qualifications of faculty members are of great importance, they have higher academic skills and knowledge to give comprehensive lectures to the students.
Universities must be facilitated with sports grounds and gymnasiums for students to take sports. Faculty members need to teach students with good behaviours, good morals, techniques and critical thinking. As it is necessary to train the students to have experiences for life as well as learning education at the university, good environments must be created for students to widen their scope of vision.
University education is not to do rote learning but studies and thinking. Interactive discussions between students and faculty members can create uplift of critical thinking of students. While the government is striving for the development of the country, faculty members and students need to improve the education sector. The government is carrying out physical and mental improvement of the students.

As education is crucial for the development of the nation, efforts are being made to develop the education sector during the period when the Tatmadaw took the State responsibilities.
Universities are institutions to create environments for the students to consider knowledge and skills and take the learning opportunities.

Academicians need to teach students to have actual skills and knowledge and urge the students to read a lot for the improvement of their educational qualifications.
Officials from the academic sector must be assigned in the academic sector and those from the management sector in the relevant sectors for ensuring smooth administration and management measures. Refresher courses must be conducted for faculty members to be able to study newer knowledge.
The Senior General stressed the need for spending the budget under the financial rules and regulations as well as laws. Finance must be allotted properly. Administrative measures must be taken fairly. All tasks must be carried out with goodwill.
Later, the Senior General cordially conversed with rectors, principals and attendees.—MNA
